Brand new design this season for the 2022 Volkl Mantra M6!
With this new design Volkl has “tailored” the ski’s top layer of metal and reoriented the carbon fiber in the tips. As a result, the M6 has more stability while also feeling lively and easy to maneuver, which weren’t characteristics of the Mantra before.
In addition, Volkl changed the way it uses carbon fiber in the M6’s tip. In past Mantras, a sheet of carbon made the tip stiff. The M6 tips use custom-inlaid, directional strands of carbon, which is visible in the tip of the ski. The directional carbon reinforces the torsional stiffness of the ski at the forward contact point. On snow, that meant that the shovel of the ski slid smoothly and immediately into every turn regardless of how quick or how sweeping I made them.
The third big change in the M6 is that Volkl built the ski with its signature 3D Radius Sidecut. By building three radii into one ski edge, Volkl was able to give this ski easy handling with rock-solid stability. The tightest radius is in the center of the ski, where it provides support for, say, cruising down a groomer. But it also added liveliness to short turns. Longer radii in the tip and tail gives the ski stability.
The M6 is crowd pleaser, especially with the ability to power through anysnow conditions with confidence. Which is definitely desirable with the changing conditions in Australia, so don't miss out on this powerhouse ski!
