The 2021 Volkl M5 Mantra is an all mountain classic and one of Volkl’s most popular skis for advanced to expert level skiers. This freeride ski can do it all whether it is ripping hot laps on the groomers or dropping cliffs into untouched powder bowls. The M5 Mantra is as comfortable on-piste as it is off – hard pack, crud, light pow and sidehits – the Mantra will leave you smiling as it takes them all on and crushes them with ease.
At 96mm under the M5 Mantra is a versatile width that will give you the ability to carve but enough flotation in the softer snow. The carbon tips and titanal frame structure supporting the multi-layer woodcore make this ski extra durable and responsive to even the most aggressive skiers. The ski has a small amount of tip and tail rocker allowing for a playful feel but also giving great control when needed. For this ski we recommend using a binding from the Marker Royal family such as the Griffon 13 ID due to its wide footprint and exceptional power transfer.
The Volkl M5 Mantra really is as about as close to a one-ski-quiver as you can get and will give you outstanding performance. Whether you’re navigating trees in Japan, powdery slackcountry in Canada or the varied conditions in Australia, the M5 Mantra is ready to do it all!
