Thereâ€™s only one ski thatâ€™s better than the Mantra M5: the Mantra M6.Â
How do you improve a legend? You retain the features that made the ski famous and add the latest innovations, which allow progress where a year ago you couldnâ€™t see any room for improvement. The new Mantra M6 again comes with a multilayer wood core and tip and tail rocker. But in the coming season, the newly designed ski body will, for the first time, be adapted to a 3D radius sidecut concept with a tailored Titanal frame. By adapting the Titanal components to the various ski lengths and thus to the skierâ€™s proportions, not only can the tip and tail ends be weight-optimised, but the torsional stiffness can also be influenced, thereby improving the ride qualities. This retains the familiar stability of a Titanal ski while also making the Mantra M6 noticeably lighter and more agile to control. The new handling characteristics of the Mantra M6 are also enhanced by the tailored carbon tip. The dedicated positioning of the carbon fibres results in a precise tip response and vastly improves the skiâ€™s torsional stiffness. In summary, the Mantra M6 is even more versatile than its predecessor and once again offers maximum fun!Â
The Peak Review:
The Volkl Mantra is legendary, and for good reason. This thing can ski everything and is one of the most stable, solid skis out there. It's got that Volkl feel that is hard to beat. The Mantra is a beefy ski, and it's designed for those who are really going to ski it. If that's you, this is your ski.
