If you're a hard charging directional freerider, there's a good chance the Mantra has been on your radar for a while now. But if not, it's time for some introductions. The Volkl M5 Mantra Skis have the soul of an old school ripper with a traditional shape, a stout titanal frame that offers fall line shredding dampness and rigidity, and a versatile 96 mm underfoot width. It's the go-to ski for advanced riders looking for a daily driver to crush technical terrain in between storms.
Tip & Tail Rocker – Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.
Multilayer Woodcore – The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it.
Titanal Frame – Assures the most efficient and lively all-mountain freeride performance. By shaping the top layer of metal in just the right way, Völkl engineers created a lighter weight design that maintains stability and adds liveliness and energy.
Carbon Tips – Tip material layup for high reliability/stability at the lightest possible weight.
Full Sidewall – Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.
P-Tex 2100 – A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
