Strenghts:
Floats well in loosnö, very stable at high speed and really fun in both pistons and pads.

Weaknesses:
At low speeds, the skis feel really heavy and cool and you have to get high speed for the skis to work well.

Summary:
Have only spent 3 days on the skis but love them already! Founded to take it shorter length but chose quite right. The skis fit best in a few decades of snow, but work very well in the piste. A couple of good all-round skis that I can recommend to everyone with a little more experience. Going around 30 / season in the Swedish mountains and the Alps and I would rate myself as an advanced rider.

Strenghts:
Works well in the piste to be so close.
Also ok in the rough and heavy snow off-piste (Easter ride).

Weaknesses:
Must have the speed to function optimally.
Floats badly in proper powder.
Feels a little slow and lifeless in the woods.

Summary:
Not the whole experience for me. If you want a 70-30 on / off piste skiing, the Volkl AC30 and AC50 are much better alternatives.

Strenghts:
Pillow cannon and cushions. Simply drive through all the irregularities and be stable as a thousand. Works fine in the piste and stable in high speed ranges. Surprisingly twist in the woods and between stock and stone. Trives well on horseback riding

Weaknesses:
-Puckelpist
-Is or really hard steep pist. Maybe I was too light (75kg)?
-Guy tongue

Summary:
A crazy allround ski! Running 1.5 seasons with them on all substrates (Zermatt and Cervinia). The only times you feel unsure about them are when you burn down on steep icy parties.

Strenghts:
Stable and still skiing that can withstand speed

Weaknesses:
I thought the skis felt a little lifeless and "flat", a bit boring.
Also, be not really happy with the icecream.

Summary:
Tried Mantran a day in Åre and with very high expectations. Have been going to Völkl G4 several years earlier and usually like Völkl's skis. Also know that Mantran is loved by many but unfortunately we did not work together, me and Mantran ... maybe it's right for you but try first.

Strenghts:
Ready for all conditions!
Gets cannon fin from edge to edge even under raised conditions.
In fact, flows really well in the powder.
Makalously nice edge grip.
Stable!

Weaknesses:
Nothing to irradiate in the puckles with.
Can be perceived as a bit "bowed" in denser woods.
Do not like when things go slow

Summary:
Really good skiing for the whole mountain.
Cover the most needs for a whole winter.
It's really the definition of a 50/50 skid!

Strenghts:
Cruel in the uphill and soft before, the more excited in the back, the better the mantra's, it is obvious that the offpiste also works! The skis are extremely stable and run like a trap in every bowl.

Weaknesses:
Have not found any yet, but I have a Baron tie on my skis and I imagine they are not the easiest skis to go on the mountain with peak trips (Have not tried a trip yet)

Summary:
A ski that works all over the mountain, I'm glad I bought the 184: the ears, I feel perfectly right for me!
Recommended !!

Strenghts:
+ Good edge grip in the piste. Carvar is fine in the piste with the right technique.
+ Go smoothly in pillows.
+ Good when they get a bit messy with irregularities and other things.
+ Speed ​​Stable

Weaknesses:
Can not touch anybody directly but imagine that some might think they're a bit bumpy in forest skiing, but they're nobody I'm hurting.

Summary:
Cruel allround skiing that works well wherever you go. It's good to run big turns in the piste and drive over all the bumps. In pillows are these awesome goa with nice flow.
Sits a Mark Jester on mine and is extremely pleased with the skis and the bindings.

In summary, yes, they may work well everywhere.
Great skiing highly recommended !!

Strenghts:
Really good in the offpiste, even when the ground is getting worse and / or the speed goes up.
Even quite ok in piste, you go from cutting to cutting without problems.
The allround ski that you did not think was available ...

Weaknesses:
I have nothing to compare with, though, they are a bit heavy. Most importantly, when you're going to play a bit on horseback (Duke bond) - but even when playing in jumps etc (sitting at the time of writing with a light brainwash from an underrotated 360 ...).
If you compare with a "real" pistil sheer, they are a little bit sluggish on the edge and are just so tame "kick" out of the swing - but it's qualities you easily forgive it for ...
The ice grip is really good, even if "real pistons" have a more secure grip - think it's related to being right-angled and giving a true "angle" to the surface.
The price of Duke binding is a weakness to ...

Summary:
For Swedish conditions, it must be one of the best all-round choices right now.
That you can get it with Duke binding makes it even more allround.
Although it is a relatively expensive and "advanced" ski, I think it fits everything from really experienced to more "normally" experienced riders. Beginners may choose a cheaper ski instead but the rest can really take a look.
Try it! It's rare to get "everything" in the same ski ...

Model year: 2008
Riding style: There will be a lot of piss even if there are pillows I want. Sweden, Bydalen, Åre, Vemdalen, Kittel. Single to Fernie, Zermatt type ...

Strenghts:
Really fun skiing to ride on any surface

Weaknesses:
People wonder why you have jumping pages on the ski bus ...

Summary:
I have spent more than a week on the skis and am very pleased. I like to lie and make big turns at the edge of the piste and the skis cut through everything and have very good grip. It takes a couple of rides before you get used to taking a bit more time to edge compared to a couple of racer carvs, but then every turn is a pleasure.
I have also been in some pillows and even there they are really fun.

Strenghts:
Cruel in pistons and streaks, extremely fast-paced regardless of the surface and ice-cushioning, as with a pistachio, you only have technology and strength enough to push.

Weaknesses:
too hard to get a good flow of fluff, works on open surfaces where the speed is high but in forests where it usually takes a little slower they are unfortunately not quite right

Summary:
Will new skis become soon to me when I'm sketchy looking at Katanan ..
