Völkl Kendo (2012)
Official Selection 2012
Tester's Review

The Mantra just keeps getting better with age. Now with a touch of tip rocker that improves its maneuverability and soft-snow performance, this Volkl stalwart maintains its solid and precise feel. The result is not unlike a reverse mullet, with the party up front and business (in the form of a stiff tail) in the back. It's a strong, capable ski for technical skiers that also has a wild side.
