The Curated Take
This product is a new school build on a construction that has been a proven package for strength and versatility. The variable turn radius provides a plethora of turn shapes for the expert level skier that can put forth the variations of energy needed. An incredibly powerful platform for those that are willing to push it, and a progressive ski for the intermediate with expert level intentions and an applicable athleticism.
- supreme grip on edge at speed
- variable turn radius gives progressive grip no matter the turn shape
- surprisingly easy to turn laterally, despite the long effective edge.
- High energy ski may not be best for beginners
- lacking surface area for powder floatation
How do you improve a legend? You retain the features that made the ski famous and add the latest innovations, which allow progress where a year ago you couldn't see any room for improvement. The new Mantra M6 again comes with a multilayer wood core and tip and tail rocker. But in the coming season, the newly designed ski body will, for the first time, be adapted to a 3D radius sidecut concept with a tailored Titanal frame. By adapting the Titanal components to the various ski lengths and thus to the skier's proportions, not only can the tip and tail ends be weight-optimised, but the torsional stiffness can also be influenced, thereby improving the ride qualities. This retains the familiar stability of a Titanal ski while also making the Mantra M6 noticeably lighter and more agile to control. The new handling characteristics of the Mantra M6 are also enhanced by the tailored carbon tip. The dedicated positioning of the carbon fibres results in a precise tip response and vastly improves the ski's torsional stiffness.
In summary, the Mantra M6 is even more versatile than its predecessor and once again offers maximum fun!
