Go ahead and Google it, scores of experts have gone on record saying the Völkl Mantra 102 Skis are among the most balanced daily drivers in the business - and we're not disputing it. Precise, lively on edge, damp and confident at speed, and wide enough to still have a gas on a powder day, the Mantra 102 is a winner whichever way you look at it. The package employs a number of classic Völkl technologies, including 3D sidecut, Titanal Frame, Carbon Tips, and Full Sidewall construction, but the sum of these parts is pure magic.
Tip & Tail Rocker – Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.
3D Radius Sidecut – Three radii in one ski shape deliver maximum versatility - long radii at the tip and tail for stability and smoothness, and a short radius in the mid-body allows the skier to switch from long arcs to short turns at will, at any speed.
Multilayer 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.
Titanal Frame – A Titanal Frame with a thickness of 0,7 mm is integrated along the sidewall and into tip and tail area of the ski. This way the ski provides the stability and dampening that every experienced skier expects, at the most critical spots on the tip and tail of the ski. A second thinner Titanal layer (0,3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski.
