Strenghts:
All mountain, all snow conditions versatility. Carves extremely well and floats across the crud. Wide enough for great powder days. Have tried several other skis including 2008/2009 mantras. I like these better. 94cm under foot lets you get from edge to edge faster.

Weaknesses:
Haven't found any yet

Summary:
Don't buy any you find on the internet till I get mine.

Model year: 2007
Riding style: All mountain but I don't do any big jumping, bad knees
Length on the ski: 170 cm
Riders weight: 127 kg
Riders length: 5 cm

Strenghts:
Really stable if you go fast in large, cutting turns and there is no danger that the edges let go. They feel a bit like slalom skis. It is also really great to whirl in loose snow, especially the models with full rocker.

Weaknesses:
They are not so comfortable to wrap and thus it becomes difficult to keep the speed down. Slad turns in slightly raised snow result in some shooting and hacking, especially for me who doesn't weigh much.

Summary:
The mantra is for you who go fast and aggressively. I have tested different models and the year models with full rocker are a bit more off-piste-oriented, while those with buckets under the feet are slightly sharper in the piste. All are however awesome all-mountain skis that perform on the whole mountain.

Model year: 2017
Riding style: Big turns in the piste, powder
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 64 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Superb at high speeds with big sweeping turns. Very good at the piste.

Weaknesses:
Slightly sloping from edge to edge, which makes it difficult in, for example, denser forests.

Summary:
A very stable and good skiing at higher speeds on large open spaces. On the other hand, lack of playfulness, because they are quite steady and heavy. A very good allmountain ski for those who like speed

Riding style: Ski / powder
Length on the ski: 184 cm
Riders weight: 72 kg
Riders length: 182 cm

Strenghts:
Super at high speeds with big sweeping turns in mean and hard surfaces. Very stable

Weaknesses:
Slightly slower from edge to edge, which makes it difficult in, for example, denser forests. A little too stiff for my taste

Summary:
Very good skiing at high speed. Hard in the woods. Weighs a lot and is a bit stiff. Trotts problems are the skiing that I like to get the days when it's piste skiing.

Riding style: Allmountain but more piste
Length on the ski: 184 cm
Riders weight: 72 kg
Riders length: 182 cm

Strenghts:
Very speed-stable, probably the best ski in the brokig, steep and broken piste. The worse the surface, the better behave Mantran. Requires some muscles, techniques and pressures to get the most out of the skis, unless it is "flat" and some may experience it as fluttery. However, as a allround with the main focus on the piste it is outstanding.

Weaknesses:
No direct weaknesses (if so, it lies with the rider; P)

In pillows and deep snow it works ok but not more than that, does not feel like you get that real flow like with a pair of genuine pillows doors.

Summary:
Stable, fearless, rigid, aggressive

Model year: 2015
Riding style: Offpiste 20%, Piste 80%
Length on the ski: 184 cm

I have driven the Kendo 177 for three years. Got injured on a steel edge (driving too much stone) so now I wanted to try Mantra 177, Griffon binding, in Feb-March-April one week in Gastein, one in Åre, one in Ramundberget and in the home bakery and around a week , due to snow conditions, are mostly on hard and worn offpist and very little "cushions". If Kendon was a "slalomskid", Mantran is a "grand slalom". First impression: they were a bit shabby, NOW I like them: because they are so FARTSTABILA, because I can stand on and still feel TRYGG in the ride, can stand on the drop-down, the ride will not be so viscous, "flat light "does not work much, even in" puckelpist "under the chairlifts, they work for me, and as many others have mentioned in reviews, Mantran's qualities are seen as" stiffer ", the foundation is. Updates: January 2016 a week in St. Anton under Continuous snowfall, ie a lot of powder and powder forests, and they can handle the powder test very well.

Weaknesses:
Not optimal for turning in a really steep ice piste but that was not the point either. Then I should have left my Völkl Supersport six stars. Updates: January 2016 after a week in pillows, maybe not so turn around in a moderately steep, tight enrisbush square - or is it me ???

Summary:
+++++ Fartstabila

Model year: 2015
Riding style: offpiste 80% piste 20%
Length on the ski: 177 cm

Strenghts:
Works very well in the piste. The faster you go, the better they are. Full rocker

Weaknesses:
Very hard, get nothing for free. Requires a rider who can really push.

Summary:
The skid works perfectly for me in the piste, and flows terribly well on the back.

Model year: 2015
Riding style: Pillows, piste

Strenghts:
Good ice grip and a rocket of all kind of snow in the piste, like high traffic!

Weaknesses:
Heavy and requires a rider who pushes in the turns. Does not get much for free. The waist narrow waist and no tail rocker make them not optimal when it gets a bit deeper pillows. However, they have worked hard for me in the Swedish mountains (10-20cm new snow).

Summary:
A cannon allround ski for those who are looking for a ride in the back but also go a little offpiste.

Model year: 2013
Riding style: Pist 65%, Offpist 35%
Length on the ski: 177 cm
