Volkl just announced the latest iterations of their do-everything, metal-laminate, 96mm-wide, all-mountain mens skis, the 2021-2022 M6 Mantra. There are three notable changes to the ski, including 3D radius, tailored titanal frame and tailored carbon tip. The all-new tailored titanal frame, exactly as the name suggests, is tailored to each ski length. This means that longer ski lengths have a higher titanal content for more stiffness, more direct power transmission and stronger dampening. While the shorter lengths have a lower titanal content, which makes the ski more agile, allowing smaller, lighter and less powerful skiers to use the ski's full potential performance.
