JayPeak Skierwrote a question about on April 27, 2015

I had asked one of your "Gear Heads " if the posted weight are for a pair of skis..I was told these are the weight PER SKI
Here are the actual weight per ski (from SkiMo) for the Shift
3lbs 2.4oz [169]
3lbs 5.8oz [177]
3lbs 8.6oz [185]

So the info the gear head gave me was wrong..No big deal, just wanted to correct this

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just received one of these, haven't skied with it yet. This is a 30L backpack. Comes with reset tool which is nice, but no cylinder, or replacement copper gaskets.
Weight is 1800 grams with RAS (Removable Airbag System) but no cylinder.

Mantra; the Ice ski
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the 184 Mantra, with rocker. A great ski, for Vermont, and I've had them out West too. A little long for Eastern glades, but they float well on the powder days, and will charge through any kind of snow. Excellent grip on ice, roll them on an edge, and the whole ski works for you. Yet easy to pivot with the rocker tips when the ski is flat. Mine are set up NTN Freerides for tele carving. I am 6'2" weigh 195 lbs
I call them the Panzer skis!

Beta AR jacket
5 5

I have owned one of these jackets since 2006 (wearing it in my avatar). I bought another one, on sale in yellow, and for a ski trip to St. Anton last season it was great. The bright color, really helped my teenage son and his friend to find me on the big terrain, foggy days. Size is XL; I like the roomy fit for layers. I am 6'2" 200 lbs
I ski with a bib pant (Arc Theta SV ) so the shorter length is ok, and length of sleeves is perfect. Packs small, for the skin track, with no powder skirt or extra pockets to bulk it up.
Someone says it won't fit over a helmet. Well it fits fine over my Mutiny Red helmet I am wearing here at top of Albona in St. Anton.

Manhattans Backcountry.com colors

My longer, 185 cm Manhattans. Great ski, for Western trips, and cruising back East. I have this pair mounted up with NTN Freedoms. Also have an earlier pair of Manhattans (180 cm) mounted up with NTN Freerides. Perfect ski for Vermont glades.
ps. I would say the ski has a flat tail, not twin tip. Notched for skins.

Volkl Mantra, great Eastern ski!
5 5

I bought this for the rather icy conditions we are having this year. Above all, I wanted a carving ski, for the groomers, and they deliver! I ski telemark/NTN with the Prophets, and these are a great carving ski, turn quickly too with the rocker. I have had them in a few glades, 8" of fresh and was surprised how quickly a 184 ski will turn. A little heavier than my other tele skis, but they are rock solid at speed.
Very stable, and make long, carving GS turns all day...
I am 195 lbs, 6'2" and the 184 is perfect. I will take them out West later too.
