The M5 Mantra marks the fifth generation of one of the most popular all mountain skis of all time. The Mantra is known for its high performance nature and versatile performance across the whole mountain. For 2019 Volkl has taken it to a whole new level with their new Titanal Frame construction, camber under foot, carbon tips and tails, and more. The result is an awesome ski with a tremendous feel, a huge sweet spot, and it?s also now more approachable for slightly less aggressive skiers. This new Titanal Frame construction uses horseshoe shaped sheets of metal along the edges that extend through the tips and tails, but stop under foot. This retains the stability and vibration damping that comes along with metal and gives the ski excellent power when you tip it on edge, but allows for a more natural flex pattern under foot, which gives the ski a more balanced feel and a bigger sweet spot compared to previous Mantras. Whether you?re skiing it in soft snow, in chopped up terrain, or on groomers, the Mantra performs at a very high level. It?s slightly more playful than earlier versions of the ski, while still retaining that Mantra-like feel and the precision and power that made the ski famous in the first place.
