Ski of the Week: Volkl Mantra

Ski of the Week: Volkl Mantra

The Mantra has been a mainstay in Volkl's freeskiing line. It's quick and snappy on hard snow, but wide enough for a powder day. Here's what the testers thought.

Volkl Mantra- Ski of the Week

At 96 mm, the Mantra was second-fattest in the category. That put it at a disadvantage in terms of quickness and all-mountain versatility, but it will rock those powder days. It’s a traditional-camber, wood-core, laminate construction— built for racy edge-grip that belies its girth; demanding, but also rewarding. It was No. 3 in Flotation, yet still in the middle of the pack for Hard-Snow Grip. It loves long arcs and high speeds, erring on the side of power over finesse. Among all the rockered skis, it feels especially long and burly, which skilled traditionalists will love. “A dynamic one-ski-quiver gem for experts,” said Malone.
