Product Info

Long the standard by which 100 millimeter all mountain class skis were judged, the Völkl Mantra Skis gained 2 mm in width and a bit more rocker last year, making them more versatile in softer conditions but still the bomb when the snow got hard. The ski was a huge success last season and it's back for 2016 with only topsheet changes. Chant the name over and over again until fall, and you'll be ready.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Full RockerVölkl Full Rocker is a smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and a symmetrical flex pattern. All the benefits of extra maneuverability in soft snow while delivering smooth, sexy arcs on groomed terrain. The matching flex and sidecut on the full rocker gives you full, uninterrupted edge contact. The more the ski is on edge the more effective that edge becomes, and the resulting smoothness and predictability is uncanny.

Shape

Tapered Tip & Tail

Core

Multi Layer WoodcoreVölkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core that features two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates more secure screw retention, preventing binding pull-out, and the soft, supple poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern is tailored to each ski model, depending on the desired performance.

Laminates

Power ConstructionConstruction utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls and a torsion box internal layup. Used in racing skis as well as all the freeskiing models, this versatile, proven construction provides tremendous grip, stability, and a smooth ride.

Titanal Laminate LayerThere's nothing like a layer of metal to make a ski damp and stable at speed . . .

Sidewalls

Vertical Sidewalls

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Volkl Mantra Skis 2016:

This ski is a smooth carving ski all over the hill, groomers and pow pow alike. Surprisingly stable at higher speeds. Let my amigo check them out on week two and he now has a pair.
