Returning for 2020, the Mantra M5 is Volkl's all new 5th generation of this now famous all mountain ski. New Titanal Frame Technology reduces weight while still providing strong edge hold and all terrain handling. This new construction, paired with a new shape and rocker profile still follows the initial philosophy, functioning as a never-failing and always reliable performance ski everywhere. To take on all snow conditions, from powder to ice, and steeps to groomers requires a well-designed ski that turns compromises into advantages. Thanks to early taper in the tip, a 96mm waist width, and the perfect match between rocker and ski flex, the Mantra’s signature soft snow performance is forgiving and confidence-inspiring. Titanal construction provides the stability at speed and edge hold on hard snow that has made the Mantra a favorite of skiers all over the world.
Volkl's all new Titanal frame construction places Titanal everywhere it needs to be, but not where it doesn't. This new techology gives the ski a lighter, more energetic and playful feel, with no sacrifice in stability and edge hold that only Titanium can provide.
The M5's new camber/rocker profile also improves the ski substantially, Camber underfoot increases edge hold, provides a smoother ride, and also increases rebound from turn to turn. The smooth feel and quickness from edge to edge may be the biggest improvement the new Mantra offers compared to the ski it replaces.
There is also a significant change in the shape of this new 5th generation Mantra. The longer tip profile, paired with increased taper improves the performance of this ski in deeper snow. The tip shape makes a significant difference in how a ski floats in deeper snow, and also the ski handles variable, cut up conditions. The M5 is great in the morning, still great when conditions start to get skied out, and really awesome in the afternoon, when the pow has turned to a bump field.
Simply stated, this new Mantra is state of the art in ski design and construction. Any day, any mountain, any run the Mantra M5 will keep the smile on your face.
