Volkl M5 Mantra Skis 2020

Volkl

After a few years of meandering in the wilderness with a full rocker design, the Mantra returned to "walking the walk" last season. The Völkl M5 Mantra Skis put camber back into the equation and dropped the weight by using a Titanal Frame construction with metal only around the perimeter of the tip and tail rather than two full wall-to-wall sheets. The result merited a hearty thumbs up from just about every tester we know. This ski remains unchanged for the season but for minor graphic tweaks and we're glad it does.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip & Tail Rocker  Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.

Core

Multi Layer Woodcore  The combination of Beech and Poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it.

Laminates

Titanal Frame  Metal, yes, but less of it and only around the perimeter of the tip and tail, to retain the performance advantages of Titanal with less weight.

Carbon.Tip  Tip material layup for high reliability/stability at the lightest possible weight.

Sidewalls

Full Sidewall  Full length sidewalls provide optimal power transmission for the length of the ski.

Base

P-Tex 2100 Base  A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
