Völkl Mantra 13/14
The multiusable freerider, made in Germany...
"A benchmark for the genre of freeride skis - Europes most popular off-piste ski!"
"When one tester commented, “Skis like this are becoming a lost art,” we
knew Völkl was doing something right. As a maker of high quality
products, year after year, Völkl gets the one-ski quiver crowd on its
feet with the Mantra. The Sensorwood core, vertically milled and
laminated sheets of poplar and beech, gives the Mantra a light feel. But
the ski is incredibly responsive and generates a ton of power in the
turn. Tip rocker gives it what it needs to get out of the crud, and the
traditional tail keeps the ski gripping. One tester put it best: “These
skis are so damn good.” Enough said." (Freeskier Magazine Editors Choice 2012-13) "Although only 98mm underfoot, the Mantra crushes fresh snow. Its tip
rocker and two sheets of titanal get you down deep in the powder,
instead of floating on top, which means you’ll get so many face shots
you continuously having to clean off your goggles. Classic camber
throughout the rest of the ski provides a stable ride in both soft and
firm conditions. Volkl’s power construction and vertical sidewalls give
you the confidence to open it up on groomers, and the versatile 25.8m
radius allows for easy negotiation of tighter, more technical terrain.
Imagine a ripping GS ski that loves trees and pow." (Skiers Choice Powder Magazine Test 13/14)A freerider perfectly balanced between on and off the trails.Those who don't like making decisions
the evening before, and who generally want the best of both worlds under
their feet, will love their time on the Mantra.
packs a Titanal deck for highly sporty performance, as well as a tip
rocker shape for outstanding runs in the backcountry. Even so, this ski
knows how to score points on the hard trails too. A look at the
construction shows why - the Mantra is directly between the Katana and
Kendo.And while nobody's
going to claim the Mantra is the ideal ski for a slalom race, for a
relatively wide ski it has a relatively narrow waist that lets it carve
just fine on the groomed trails. Don't take our word for it. Just look
at the awards it has won in various ski tests.
The success streak of the Mantra is unbroken. And there’s a good reason
for that, since the 98-mm wide Mantra is a real jack-of-all- trades. The
tip rocker makes turn initiation child’s play, while the Titanal
construc- tion churns out outstanding performance in any turns and even
on groomed trails.
