The Volkl Mantra Ski is your talisman six months of the year. This all-mountain ski both flirts with the big mountain and frolics with the front-side carvers. A combination of core technology and traditional sidewall construction makes the Mantra easy to repeat over and over again, whether it's laps on a big bowl or screaming down a steep shot. The Mantra's tip rocker combines an early rise tip and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski, which basically lays the full length of the ski edge on the snow so you can easily initiate turns on both hardpack and fluff. In the soft stuff, the tip rocker makes this ski forgiving and floaty so you can undulate over powdery pillows.Volkl uses its Sensorwood core to keep the Mantra light and manageable. Vertically laminated poplar and beech wood create a lightweight and responsive core for bumps, trees, powder, and powerful turns on smooth surfaces. Made with Power Construction, this ski basically has two sheets of metal covering the core, similar to a racing ski. For you, this means a smoother-than-silk ride, and no extra trips to the dentist because the ice-induced chatter caused all of your fillings to fall out. With 98mm underfoot, you have unlimited ski freedom to explore off-piste or rip down groomers. The Mantra sports the widest turn radius of Volkl's all-mountain skis, 22m for a 170cm ski. This translates to the snow in the following manner: skiing through densely packed trees will be challenging, while sweeping turns and soaring over bumps will be easier than eating pie. If you're a single-arrow-in-your-quiver skier, take the Mantra on a date, and enjoy the first of many outings with your new ski love.
Versatile enough to be your every day ski, the Volkl Mantra ski also stomps the deep powder and plows over crusty conditions. The Power Construction design uses vertical sidewalls and a torsion box lay up to provide excellent edge-to-edge control and superior durability. With 98mm underfoot, you're able to float through the pow but still have plenty of power and smoothness of a tip-rockered freeskier's dream.
