The Mantra has long defined the all mountain freeskiing category, excelling in any snow conditions - from powder to ice.

All skis are waxed, brushed out and carefully packed

Volkl say:

"Is it possible to improve what is arguably the world‘s best all-mountain freerider? The answer is a YES! But you can‘t hit that goal by making changes. A redesign is required. So the Mantra now comes with a new shape, full rocker design, directional but moderate taper construction and a little more width than its predecessors. The only element that remains is the titanium structure for maximum power transfer. The result is a Mantra ready for an universal range of challenges, crisper and more direct than ever on the groomed terrain and even more playful and powerful off it."

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.

Question:

Hi snow fit, Having skied on my katana' and mantra's on 185/6? I wondered if the 191's would suit me my height is 6 ft 85 kgs and an experienced skier. Would you please put forward the benefits and negatives (if any) of the longer ski? Many thanks, Nicholas

    Hello Again Nicholas

     

    To be fair the extra length, approx 4cms in front of your bindings and 3cm behind them will add just a little to the challenge of tight tree runs.

    However, unless you are an obsessed tree skier then I would consider this a very minor irritation; if you are then it has to be borne in mind that the slightly longer turn radius and the slightly longer physical length of the ski (as opposed to how long they feel when skiing) will make them marginally less manoeuvrable in tight situations; everything else I said earlier stands.

     

    Kind regards

    Good Evening Nicholas

    Thanks for your enquiry

    The benefits:-

    Slightly better stability at higher speeds

    Ski shorter than the 191cm length suggests as a result of more pronounced rocker

    Extra float of the longer ski means it's an almost perfect compromise between your two existing skis

    Longer length better in tune with your height/balance ratio

    Extra footprint over existing Mantra's is achieved without going noticeably wider and thus avoiding the slightly slower edge to edge charactreristics of say the Katana's.

     

    Disadvantages:-

    You may need to buy a longer ski bag!

     

    Hope this helps but f it would help further to chat anything through then by all means, give me a call at the shop on 01603 716655 after 10am Tues-Sat.

     

    Kind regards

     

    John and Team at Snowfit
