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

Strenghts:
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

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.

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.

Strenghts:
Hard and sturdy in all bowls, good flow from raised soft back and afternoon puckles to firmer offpiste. Requires speed weight and strength on tougher piste but then it responds!
Easy to get around with in the backpack and around the treadmill ...

Weaknesses:
Over the years, a little worse response, no pure pistachio, of course, nor a pure sneeze slip when it starts to become the bottom layer - then you fall and end up, have pulse home the last bit of pillows to the thighs ... - for such conditions I would also have chosen longer length. Wear also worse than ski m rocker

Summary:
Been a perfect all-round ski in Nordic conditions, chose a shorter length in terms of family skiing and weekend breaks in the city, super pleased!

Model year: 2010
Riding style: Pist o puder

Strenghts:
Speed ​​stability, ice grip, carving, freight trains on all junk.

Weaknesses:
A little long radius. Not so fun to go in low speed. A bit hard on a soft surface. With more than 25cm loose, there are more fun skis.

Summary:
Love these skis. I do not need any clean piste skiing anymore, as pistachio can only compete for a short while in the morning, then Mantran predominates. Also tested modern top models for pistol around 80-90 at the waist, but think Mantran is in its own class.

Strenghts:
Stabila as a thousand
Works well in Swedish conditions
Really good in the piste

Weaknesses:
Feels a little tight sometimes. May be difficult to get around in the swing sometimes
No rocker, not the best flow in really fluffy pillows.

Summary:
If you're the one who goes all over the mountain and most is in Scandinavia, this is a perfect ski run. Goes like the train both in the woods and in the piste. But if you want a more cleaned offpiste skiing, you might want to choose another model that has rocker.

But endock: A ski I highly recommend!

Strenghts:
terribly safe and speed-proof, good at cutting, snap in and out of the turn and so much fun in the pist.It's just gonna be on!
The tip rocker makes it a pleasure to ride on track and also provide a good flow in the offpiste / loosnut.

Weaknesses:
find none, especially if you just want a ski to everything.
requires technology but returns a lot.

Summary:
great skiing, good at everything. You can count on it, both at high speed and in the off-piste.
