Technical info:
This classic stands out as one of the narrowest in its category. Compared to the Enforcer it has a longer turning radius. Mantra has a heavy aluminum sandwich construction. The flex is stiff, especially at the tip. The tip angle is steep. The skis have camber, but not very much. In the tip they have a long, low rocker. These skis have no taper at all, which gives the Mantra the longest sidecut in this category.

On snow:
One of the best cruising skis on the market - now with rocker. Flotation could be better, but at the same time you won't get any nasty surprises. Perfect for turns on groomed slopes, they are nimble, responsive and fun. All in all this is a good and maneuverable ski. Fits those who who want a top ski for groomed slopes, but who also want to enjoy the best powder days.
