The Völkl Mantra Skis are the Tim Duncan of the ski world—it’s ageless and seems to get better every year, cementing itself among the legends in skiing lore. The subtle reverse camber profile ensures the Mantra is plenty maneuverable while retaining high performance when arcing turns on the hardpack. Dense ash wood in the mounting area helps it slice, while poplar keeps ‘em nimble. One tester went so far as to say, “Turning hard on these skis might be better than sex.” That’s a highly debatable remark, but a sentiment shared unanimously by our testers, evidenced by a perfect score in
the carving category.
