Volkl Mantra (2013)

Volkl Mantra (2013)
Gold Medal Gear

Tester's Review

The Mantra is not—never was—a learn-to-ski-powder board. Last among winners in Forgiveness, it assumes you have some skill and athleticism and at least a little heft. So think twice before sizing up on it, then hanging on for the ride. The Mantra is all Völkl: solid on edge, best at speed. In a category of really good skis, it’s No. 2 in Stability, No. 3 in Hard Snow. Tip rocker? Maybe, but its ride is more defined by the thrilling rebound and lock-tight edge grip of traditional camber, with the let-it-rip dampness of metal laminates. “Völkl at is best.”
