Technical info:
The Mantra must be the longest running model name in the field of freeride skis. Year after year new enthusiasts discover this metal reinforced allrounder. The radius is a little longer than most of the other skis in this category. The rocker was included long ago, but now it's longer and the camber in the waist is flat. The waist width has been increased by a few millimeters. The flex is a touch softer from the waist and backwards, compared to the previous edition.

On snow:
The latest Mantra rocker ski is a compliant and good allround ski. But how good are the slope properties that have been associated with the Mantra? We think that several competitors match the edge grip and stability at speed. But the rocker construction also makes Mantra float extra well on softer surfaces. We believe that many of you will enjoy the Mantra, especially those who like to turn on groomed slopes.
