The iconic Mantra was the first ski if its kind to master everything from powder to ice with ease. Then the key innovation on the 5th generation was a new way of arranging the metal layers called Titanal Frame: the metal sections follow the ski shape in the tip and tail, with an added carbon inlay in the tip. This intricate construction is lighter in weight, with the same damping properties as a full sheet of metal. The shape is 134-96-117mm, with a tightened radius of 19.8m in size 177. Tip and Tail Rocker design with camber underfoot, and Full Sidewall construction round out the setup. With more awards than any other ski this past season, it remains the performance standard for all mountain freeride skis.
