Strenghts:
Because broken knee, the premiere has shot a year but here goes. Wonderful skiing that totally seems to lack the upper speed limit. Great grip on classic windpack. In big cutting turns it's just burning, the ski is absolutely wonderful and lies like an aprak Danish at the Roskilde Festival against the snow.

Weaknesses:
No elevator if you want to drive cha-cha-cha!

Summary:
Highly recommended!

Model year: 2007
Riding style: If I do, I'll go.

Strenghts:
can handle all surfaces, even piste surprisingly well, drive straight across all the irregularities and is consistent. Feels stable at high speed.

Can not handle any, but all skis may be better on different things. It's an allround ski, so it's no-one.

Summary:
a good skiing which is fun to ride on. ROUND. cope with everything.

Strenghts:
It's like taking a ride, really, really speedboat.
But it's also because they're as basty when it's done fast.
They are fun outside the piste.

Weaknesses:
sluggish in flatbacks and not said madness from edge to edge.

Summary:
Hurton skis if you like to drive fast on all surfaces.

Strenghts:
Good edge grip for its width.
Good flow to be so stiff.
Perfect balance between pistons and pillows.

Weaknesses:
Very few, if any, anybody. Does not come true actually.

Summary:
I am soon 40 (satan) have gone quite a bit backcountry, bummat in St.Anton but have become a little calmer in recent years. However, likes speed and a lot of G forces, but does not have the same power as before.
Mantran can do anything. Good mix between stability, edge grip without being too hard for fluff-fluff. Best skiing I had.

Strenghts:
Awesome ice grip! Getting on all surfaces, it will be an inconvenience e just pulling it through! A good allround ski.

Weaknesses:
If the ski seems boring in the piste, nothing happens. Good if you want to lie on stoora cut at high speed but if you are looking for a more playful ski with good turn in there are better options. Too heavy and stiff to be good at the park (in addition, little twintip)

Summary:
A good ski if you want to lie on big cuts at high speed and crushing everything in its path. I think it will be a little sad and one-sided.

Strenghts:
The absolute greatest advantage of these skis is its versatility. I have worked all the mountain sides of the entire year in a very changing bow and the skis have just continued to surprise. Mantran feels like a ski that grows with speed. It is soft enough to make it easy to cut into piles while not getting worried when the speed is increased and pre-slaughtered. Ready heavy skiers fine (I weigh 102 kg).

Weaknesses:
To mention something, Mantran may not keep stability at very high speeds. I compare with Völkl's classic G4 (precursor to AC4 an), as it was a freestyle skid with performance like a grand slalom and just got better the faster you went. On the other hand, G4an was not as fun to play as mantran probably for the above reason.

Summary:
A sophisticated all-round skid for advanced skiers.

Strenghts:
Sick good skiing! Have traveled with them in Serre Chevalier, La Grave and in Sälen (!). They actually got their biggest trial in Sälen, total blue ice after a lot of hard winds, went with them after a very hard run on the wall in Hundfjället. There was no problem. Other skiers dropped like coils down the wall (which was later shut down because of the ice), I could, however, stand on properly without any problems. The edge grip is cruel and they are ruggedly stable at high speeds.

Weaknesses:
Slightly large turning radius. For those who think it's fun, go back a pair of gotama fits better. Going back with the Mantra side is no problem

Summary:
Can not but add my warmest recommendations for Mantran. worked very well for me both in Offpist in challenging La Grave and in a rocky Sälen with blueberry. The skid works in all bowls and you like to go fast, you will not be disappointed - it's terribly stable with a terrific edge grip. I have been very skis in my days and tried many skis - these are clearly the best I've been to.
