Building on the success of last season’s Mantra M5 blockbuster, Völkl built the new Mantra 102 on the same Titanal frame platform and added the brand’s dynamic 3D radius shape. These two elements combine for easier turn initiation without sacrificing high-speed performance. This technology puzzle earned top marks for versatility and assertions that it’s the smoothest arcing ski in the category. 

STRENGTHS: Versatility, Overall Impression
