Mantra V Werks Ski
Hop on the Volkl Mantra V Werks Ski for a lightweight but powerful ride that thrives on groomers and in powder. To achieve this ride the Mantra is equipped with a generous waist width, Rocker-Camber-Rocker profile, and a lightweight construction.
The 99mm waist provides a super versatile and stable platform that can go from edge to edge quickly on firm snow days as well as provide ample float when mother nature blesses you with the fresh stuff. Working with that width to boost versatility, the Rocker-Camber-Rocker profile balances maneuverability and powerful edge hold. The maneuverability is cause by the rocker in the tip and tail that allows you to quickly break your edge free and change direction. The tip rocker also helps you float in powder, while the camber section underfoot drives power to the edges to increase edge hold and confidence when carving. Finally a full lightweight wood core with carbon laminates provides a mind-blowingly powerful ride at a light weight while remaining just damp enough to reduce chatter at high speeds.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I’m 5’11” and bought the 178s. It’s incredible how stable they are for their weight. The tips will chatter a bit at high speed through crud but the skis never feel out of control. Never. Not in deep snow, not on icy runs, not on steeps. They are light and they feel like you are on rails. They are definitely not a forgiving ski. I would say at least for advanced intermediate and better skier. Took me a whole day to get used to them, and then the wow factor kicked in: strong, light, fast and stable.
