2016 Volkl Mantra Skis (European Edition) w/ Marker Griffon Bindings
If you love the performance of the Volkl Mantra skis and bindings, but have had the skis suffer undesirable damage to the metal topsheets, give the new European Edition a go. The new Mantra (European Edition) provides skiers with the ever popular stable and maneuverable all-mountain ride the skis have been known for, and are now combined with a durable topsheet construction. Not only is the new Mantra one of the best all-mountain one-ski-quivers, but the European Edition also has one of the most durable topsheet construction to protect against the heavy lift line traffic of European mountains. No more worries about your ski investment looking damaged from little Johnny dragging his skis across yours, the durable topsheet design includes sections offering super durability to protect the cosmetic design of the topsheet.

Great ski Review by Scooter
I skiied the 2016 Mantra this past week with Spring conditions at Powder Mountain and Jackson Hole. This ski has a lot of horsepower and is not far from a GS race ski when it comes to stiffness and gripping on hard snow conditions first thing in the morning. As the conditions softened through the day the skis performed even better seeming to plow easily through soft moguls and clumps of snow. The slight full rocker helps with carving and turn initiation. Unfortunately can't comment on how it skis in powder. (Posted on 3/21/2017)
great skis, great service Review by frank
Couldn't be happier. They arrived and the bindings fit perfectly for my boots and the DIN settings were correct for my size and skiing ability. I still had them checked out at a ski shop to make sure they were correct before I used them.
The skis themselves are the best overall ski I've ever used. They give me great confidence going through chopped up conditions and going fast. They turn remarkably easy.
Two negatives are that they are heavy and chatter a lot on ice. I've gotten used to both of these.
I highly recommend these skis.
