One of the category's most versatile skis, the Mantra straddles the line between all-mountain and big-mountain. The tip bites and pulls into turns early, and the body follows with exceptional grip throughout.

Props

Reactive. Will it to turn and you're on edge.

Gripes

The stiff tail, while great for hardpack, catches in softer snow.

Tester's Take

"Going fast or slow, this ski turns on command." -Sven Brunso
