Maverick 100 vs Benchetler 100
Seeing all these adds for the new Atomic Maverick 100. Anyone know the difference between these and the BC 100s?
Maverick 100 Ti = all mountain/freeride, poplar wood core, fiberglass, and two sheets of metal.
Benchetler 100 = all mountain/freestyle, poplar wood core and fiberglass
The Bent is definitely going to be more playful. It's a fun all mountain ski and while it skis surprisingly well for its weight, it gets bounced around in choppy, manky conditions.
The Maverick is a directional ski that will hold an edge better, handle chop better, and just be a more stable choice for an all mountain ski. It's really easy to get the ski to rail and also release/smear whenever I want.
Personally, I just unloaded my Bent 100 because the Maverick suits my needs more betterer. But, I can totally understand why someone would prefer the Bent 100 over the Maverick 100. Two different paint brushes.
on paper the diffs seem pretty big between them, but when holding both, you can tell they are related, but onenerdykid points everything out ;)
for me they both have a way to stiff tail vs shovel and underfoot, but it an individual thing, but somewhat also a length thing for the models.
All times are Eastern (-5)
