Volkl Mantra All Montain SkisSTYLE # 114340
The Mantra has long defined the all mountain freeskiing category, excelling in any snow conditions - from powder to ice. Introducing an even wider range of performance, thanks to early taper in the tip, a new 100mm waist width, and Full Rocker. Soft snow performance is improved, with more overall foregiveness, and the edge grip you know and love. The best Mantra EVER.
FEATURES:Ability: Advanced, Expert Conditions: 40% groomed - 60% power Multilayer Woodcore Light: Vlkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core that features two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates more secure screw retention, preventing binding pull-out, and the soft, supple poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern is tailored to each ski model, depending on the desired performance. This popular wood core is featured in more models for 14/15. Tough Box Construction: Tough Box construction consists of the use of a Multi-Layer wood core (see below) and a composite/fiberglass sheath to create the ultimate resilience and snap for our freeskiing models. The sheath is wrapped around the wood core in the mid-body of the ski, increasing strength and screw retention. Many V^lkl freeskiing models also feature a carbon layer in the bottom of the ski that provides additional stability and durability.Powered by Titanium: Titanal, an alloy of titanium and aluminum, is an integral part of Vlkl ski design. Its strength, light weight, and resiliency make it ideal for use in ski construction. Our engineers found that titanal absorbs harmful vibration frequencies, while allowing good vibrations through. Pioneered by Vlkl, titanal provides superior damping, stability, edge grip, and smoothness in select high performance models throughout the 2014/2015 collection.Full Rocker: A smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and flex. Extended Low Profile (ELP) gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. How? By matching the flex and sidecut with the full rocker (long, gradual bend from tip to tail) profile, the skier gains full, uninterrupted edge contact. The more you put the ski on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability is truly uncanny.
