Volkl's Mantra has a few awards to its name this year. Ski Magazine gave it the distinction of 'Gold Medal Gear,' and Freeskier hooked it up with an editor's pick. What they like about this ski is that it is a genuine do it all. Its waist measure of 100mm is wide enough to break out even on powder days, but narrow enough to let you get your kicks two weeks after a storm. Most noteworthy about this ski is its Full Rocker Design that makes them as playful as friendly cetaceans featured in 90's children's' movies. That full rocker keeps you afloat in powder no matter how deep, or if you are working with just a couple of inches. Meanwhile, its performance on groomers is surprising to say the least. Contrary to popular wisdom that says camber is the only way to keep control on hardpack, the Mantra maintains exceptional edge hold on firm snow when laid over - with lightning fast rebound into the next turn. Above all the Mantra all mountain prowess is matched only by its propensity for taking to the air backwards and forwards and using the 'buttering' technique to get you there. It you like to ski all over the mountain, then you will like the Mantra!

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Skier Ability: Advanced to Expert: Skipping the blue runs to get to the black runs, but sometimes a little cautious when it gets very steep, or some hesitation when your buddy says, ''You just have to clear those rocks or else you're toast.''

Volkl Full Rocker: Originally called Extended Low Profile, Full Rocker gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. As soon as the ski is on edge, the skier gains uninterrupted edge contact. The more the ski is on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability is truly uncanny.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Early Taper: The widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier in the tip to reduce tail drag and hooking in powder.

Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the the rounded Cap construction forund on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.

Titanium Layer: A thin, but strong layer of Titanium sits under the topsheet of this ski. Not only does it make the ski stronger, it keeps it lighter than other metals, and also creates a dampening effect for the ski. This means it rides smoother over bumpy terrain.
