Volkl M6 Mantra (2022)
DescriptionThis is a pre-order product. ETA late May 2021
The next generation Mantra is here, and it really is better than ever. The Volkl M6 Mantra pushes the boundaries of just how versatile an all-mountain ski can really be. Building upon the success of the predecessor, the new Tailored Titanal Frame brings back the best in stability, dampening, and edge hold, but caters it more specifically to each size ski. For those firm groomers or variable freeride conditions, the M6 is as capable as ever. Volkl's renowned 3D Radius is finally introduced in this generation, giving it the ability to make shorter, snappier turns easily while still being able to let them run in open terrain confidently. The new Tailored Carbon Tips give these skis a an even more precise feel when engaging turns. This not only adds to the composure, but also makes them more friendly and forgiving when you end up finding some nice powder stashes. We could keep going on, but the second you hop on a pair you won't need any convincing!

Tailored Titanal Frame
The Titanal Frame with a thickness of 0,7 mm is integrated along the sidewall and into tip and tail area of the ski. This way the ski provides the stability and dampening that every experienced skier expects, at the most critical spots on the tip and tail of the ski. A second thinner Titanal layer (0,3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski. This way the binding screws offer the most reliable hold even in the toughest conditions and the super thin sheet allows a soft flex in the mid-body. The last sheet runs directly underneath the core for added support. Due to this highly complex construction skiers experience a previously unknown combination of liveliness and high speed stability.
3D Radius Sidecut
Usage of long radii at tip and tail for big turns and high speed and a shorter radius in the center for short turns and lower speed.
Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.
The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around.
Tailored Carbon Tip
By weaving the carbon pattern to a carrier material, Volkl is able to place the carbon weave with much greater precision. This helps to tune the flex per the size and gives the ski an even more active feel.
Base P-Tex 2100
A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability
