Strenghts:
Lightness. Good all round ski in powder and piste. Holds good edge on piste. Carves large radius.

Weaknesses:
None except top surface flakes off on edges due to no laquer...

Summary:
Good all rounder for piste ,freeride and some minor skinning. Softer than mantra and for me just right.

Model year: 2017
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 73 kg

A good all-round ski that works well on the road up and down. The width is good enough in Swedish and Norwegian conditions, but if you go a lot in the powder holes in Canada and Japan, they may feel a bit narrow.

Model year: 2012
Riding style: Topptur
Length on the ski: 176 cm

Strenghts:
Easy to carry. One skid is in new condition. Happy not to lose one connection.

Weaknesses:
A ski slope and wind after 3 days of racing. The overrun began to drop under the pants, continued
then forward past the front tie while the shape of the ski was changed to both tip and tailrocker.

Summary:
Reliable model. Then drive Mantra as funky for several seasons.
Tip: Mount the joints with a continuous bolt.
Driving skis for 40 years, never been involved in the quality of the game.
Ride: everything from piste to lack of masonite

Model year: 2013

Strenghts:
Do not know what it's about talking about. I'm not a sophisticated skier, but I think it's very good for ice skating. It's easy to move and respond well inside and outside the piste. Have participated in Rossignol Bandit of different vintage and Dynastar Sultan. It is quite similar to the Sultan, however, longer pivot radius and thus less kick in turns but more stable.

Weaknesses:
No major, I think it's a slight slope so it's a little bit harder and skier than a heavier ski that pushes the snow and absorbs more. Then the hollow construction becomes a part when you go hard, think "peeled cucumber" in the school.

Summary:
Bought it as an allround randone ski with Dynafit bindings, works great for me.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Randone, off-piste, piste
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 73 kg
Riders length: 178 cm

Strenghts:
There are no strengths here, only shortcuts. The skid is stiff like a steel rail in the long run, but of course not at all. No icing at all is the disappointing result. The longitudinal rigidity means that the ski should rather be marketed as a speed skis.

Weaknesses:
I do not know where to start. That the attachment to the bond breaks after 2 days? That the ski digs down in the turn? That the ski has no grip?

The spirit positive must be that it is easy, but why weary to pull up the mountain when it can be thrown into a sophink?

Summary:
I am disappointed, but I think Volkl has other good skiing. This ski lacks all quality that Volkl has had earlier. Of course, there may be compensation problems at the new factory in Kyrgyzstan?

Model year: 2011
Riders weight: 95 kg
Riders length: 189 cm
