They say

We say

The new Mantra continues with the same construction as last year but adds tip rocker to make the ski easier to move into the new turn and more relaxing to handle. The new Rocker design definitely makes itself felt, making the Mantra a lot easier to move into the new turn, particularly in variable, chopped up conditions. One of the stand out characteristics of this ski is its powerful edge grip, something that it retains from last years model, even on hard pistes, it’s the type of ski that loves to be ridden hard and fast. Overall, a great ski that would suit confident skiers who love to ride fast in any conditions.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Rocker at front of ski helps it to float through variable snow. Great for fast skiing and bigger turns
Roddy Willis
Amazing grip on the piste. This is a pretty good ski which is lively, fun and rewards high energy
