One of the most popular all-mountain skis in the world for the last decade, the Volkl Mantra returns for 2016 with last year's shape but the same old acclaim. This Mantra maintains the front-side precision--rare for a 100mm-wide ski--that made it a star, but excels even more in soft snow conditions. The revised tapered tip makes entering and exiting turns quicker and easier, while the full rocker (AKA reverse camber) shape makes the ski more forgiving and offers even better float in soft snow. The power of the Mantra is still there, and it certainly remains an advanced-to-expert level ski. But, with a bit of playfulness now added to its prior all-business attitude, this new Mantra just may be the best Mantra of them all.
The Mantra’s dimensions are 132-100-118 and come in lengths of 170cm, 177cm, and 184cm.
