Volkl M6 Mantra Skis with Bindings

The Volkl M6 Mantra skis with bindings are an amazing choice for expert level skiers who are looking for that one setup for true high-performance all-mountain skiing. We could, and do, use a lot of superlatives and descriptive words when dealing with the Mantra skis, and the M6 is a nice improvement over the previous M5 version. There are three main changes, and they all combine to make the ski more approachable without losing the high-end feel of the Mantra name. For more than a decade, the Mantra moniker has been synonymous with versatile all-mountain performance, and the M6 takes it to a new level. When we add our bindings to the mix, we're seeing a whole new value added to these amazing skis. The 3D Radius sidecut is one of the changes, and this allows the skier to make any shape of turn at any time, allowing for a more customized feel to the ski, as you can really change up the arc depending on conditions or terrain. The titanal frame has been tailored in the M6 to accommodate different lengths, again finding that balance between having too much metal or not enough. The M6 makes it just right, and makes the skis feel like they're custom-built for you and your size. Same can be said for the tailored carbon tips, making the initiation phase to the turn quicker and more precise than ever before. The Volkl Mantra M6 is here to meet your high-performance all-mountain needs.

Features:

  • Sidecut: 135/96/119
  • Turn Radius: 30/17/24 meters at 177 cm Length
  • Multi-Layer Wood Core
  • Tailored Titanal Frame

Question by: Jjmceleney on Aug 6, 2021, 3:37 PM
The 3D Radius allows the skier to make a variety of turn shapes with ease and without much thinking. The ski is very intuitive and reacts to the situation at hand without any effort. The 3D Radius does not add stability at higher speeds, but does allow the skier to make a longer radius turn at faster speeds. The Titanal Frame provides the damp and stable feel at speed.

I am look Second pair of skis I am on vocal Deacon 84 size 182 I am look at Volkl M6 Mantra for solf snow and curd what think and what size thanks
Question by: Craig Harbin on Dec 14, 2021, 1:22 PM
Hi Craig,

The M6 would be a nice addition to your Volkl quiver. Will certainly add to powder, soft snow and crud performance when conditions get prime. I don't know what your height and weight is to properly size you ski length wise but based on that you are skiing a 182cm in the Deacon, I would recommend the 184cm length for the M6. You will want a little bit extra length due the rocker profile of the ski.

Hope this helps and think snow!

40-year-old Male, 5'11", 175 pounds. Beginner to intermediate, aggressive and love speed and carving, but ski at crowded resorts, so need more control. I started out on Solomen S-Force 9s in 177cm. These are all I've only ever skied, so it's all I can compare too. For sub-freezing weather with nice flat, groomed trails, the S-Forces did exactly what I wanted and expected. However, anything but speed and carving was a battle for me. I'm now looking to add some versatility, and something a bit more fun and casual. Something that can ski fast and carve, but a quicker turning ski, that releases the turn easier than the S-Force, that will smear a little easier, to help control speed and direction on a crowded slope, or cruise around easy when I start getting tired at the end of the day. With all that being said, they have to go hard when I ask them too, or I'll hate them, so performance is still a priority. I'm thinking about going a little shorter to 170cm. Would appreciate your experienced guidance. Thanks!
Question by: Chris Moore on Mar 20, 2022, 1:18 PM
HI Chris!
Regarding the M6, you're still going to have a fight at the end of the day. You'll get fantastic performance for sure, but you do have to earn it. I'd look to something a bit more friendly but still with some good firepower, check out the Salomon QST 92 or the Head Kore 93. You're in a good width zone with those skis--very versatile, carvy, and high-performance, and both operate well at a variety of speeds and in different terrain. With a lighter ski like the Kore, I don't think you'd have to go to the 170, but you certainly can if you want! Have fun!

Question by: Sandra whelan on Jan 5, 2022, 12:27 PM
Hi Sandra,

You could go wither way with this ski. Shorten up for lighter swing weight and quicker turn intuition. Go longer if you are feeling a need for more speed.

Hello, just found your site while snooping around for new skis. I currently have Volkl M5 at 177 length, before that had the kendos. 63 yo 175lbs athletic advanced skier. Ski mainly mammoth out west, single blacks and nice high speed blue cruisers, occasional easy double black. 80% groomers, Sierra powder and crud when lucky. M5’s are really sweet when get on edge just right, but I have to ski them. Are the M6 slightly more forgiving? Should I stay with 177? go down a size? Or think about a different ski? Atomic Maverick Ti, Nordica enforcer 94, Stokli SR95?
Question by: Anthony Hotchkiss on Apr 18, 2022, 1:02 PM
Hi Anthony!

The M6 feels almost like the M5 but not as on rails. Its much easier to smear, skid, and pivot with edges that don't bite as much. You get a lot more maneuverability out of the M6 that the M5 was lacking. For Compared to something like an Enforcer or Maverick, the Enforcer is definitely the more powerful ski but its going to work you harder and the Maverick is lighter and a bit more playful. I would stick with 177 if that worked for you on the M5, still a pretty similar rocker profile.

Hi, First compliments on the site and success. I am a 45 yo advanced skier who’s just getting back into the scene after a few decades off. In my youth I would take on any double black put in front of me, but those days are behind me. Still love charging hard, going fast and laying down deep GS turns but also gravitate to where the bumps and trees are. Grew up in VT but now in Washington state. I’m on small side: 5’7” and 145lbs. Am debating bw the 163 and 170 length and was hoping you could chime in. Thanks!
Question by: Tom on Mar 24, 2022, 2:14 AM
Thanks, Tom!
I'd go 163. It's a pretty burly ski so there's no real reason to upsize for stability. Have fun!

Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Mar 25, 2022, 1:43 PM
I'm looking at these skis and trying to see the correct length for myself at 6'3 250, an expert skier who loves to ski fast. Do you think that the 191 vs. 184 is right for me? Also, do you plan on receiving any 191 in stock?
Question by: Stanley Vignier on Mar 20, 2022, 11:24 AM
HI Stanley!
If you know you prefer longer skis, go 191--you do have the stats for it. We'll likely see those come in with our normal inline order some time this summer.

I am 64, 5'10" and 215 pounds. I am 64 years old advanced skier (comfortable on all single black). I am skiing almost exclusively on-piste. My previous skis were 170 but much heavier and less flexible than Mantra 6. I tested one time Mantra 6 177 and liked it a lot but felt the need for a little more stability with higher speed. Would you recommend going to 184 or you think I will eventually adjust to 177. Thank you.
Question by: eugene mironer on Mar 4, 2022, 11:33 AM
HI Eugene!
My initial response is that the 184 is on the long side, but I'm not here to talk you out of a good time. If you know you prefer longer skis and stability at speed is a priority, then the 184 will take care of that. I'd also take a look at the Kendo 88 if you're on-trail exclusively, just a bit more torsional stiffness and edge grip on the narrower ski with the same build. Have fun!

Hi, I am a 61 year old intermediate skier and am 5'10" and 210 lbs. I am particularly interested in the 170 cm Volkl Mantra 6 to help me better control speed and bumps in Colorado. What length would you suggest? Also, how many pounds does the Mantra 6 weigh?

I am currently skiing the Fischer All Mountain 176 - 120/76/106.
Question by: Darrell Smith on Feb 21, 2022, 4:38 PM
HI Darrell!
I'd look to something a bit more manageable than the M6. While it's certainly a great choice for precision and power, it is pretty stiff for bumps and speed control--it prefers to go fast on groomers. Head Kore 93, Elan Ripstick 96, and Line Sick Day 94 would likely line up with your application a bit better, and I'd go low to mid 170's in any of those models. . That said, in the 177, the M6 weighs about 2050 grams per ski. Havefun!

Hi!

Interested in the M6 Mantra and need sizing help. I am 5'9/185lbs. with an athletic build. I would consider myself a faster skier that would fall into the advanced/intermediate category. I currently have a set of Blizzard Bonafide 173cm skis that are a few years old. I got along very well with those. Please let me know what size in the M6 you would recommend.

Thanks!
Question by: David Bahr on Feb 15, 2022, 3:17 PM
Hi David!
I'd say the 170 makes sense unless you know you prefer longer skis. You could ski the 177, so if you felt yourself wanting more length out of your 173 Bonafide's, I'm not going to talk you out of the 177. Have fun!

I’m 41, 5’9” and 190lbs. I’m an advanced>expert skier but my knees aren’t what they used to be so I don’t ski as hard as I could in years past. Im looking for a fun all-mountain ski that can handle everything well. Only taking 1-2 trips a year at this point.

Ive been skiing on 2002 Atomic’s or demoing and feel it’s time to invest in a new pair. I’ve been looking at the Mantra M6 but are they too much ski?
Question by: David Spiegel on Feb 3, 2022, 9:16 PM
Hi David,

The beauty of the M6 is that is appeals to many different skier types and styles. It can be skied slow or fast and can do any turn shape at any speed. It excels in nearly any terrain and any condition but the deepest powder day and is approachable and easy to ski. Just the right amount of stiffness, rocker profile and shape. There is a reason why this ski has won so many awards and is a SE Tester favorite.

At your height and weight, go for the 170 cm length.

Go for it. You won't regret it and it will NOT be too much ski for you.

5’ 9”, 60 yr, 165 lbs been skiing on 178 Gotama. Considering getting m6 in either 177 or 170. Ski mostly blacks, would continue to use the Gotama on the bigger powder days. Feel like at my age I need to slow down a little. Torn between 177 or 170?
Favorite days are foot of powder on a mogul run. Feel like the 170 would be easier in the moguls when the snow is hard packed.

Been skiing the Gotama regardless of the snow conditions. Maybe the m6 becomes my one ski.
Rocker will make the m6 ski like a shorter, which pushes me to the 177, harder packed bumps makes me think 170 would be better.

What would you suggest?
Question by: Travis White on Jan 26, 2022, 8:35 AM
Hi Travis,

you will like the M6 coming form the Gotama. Just a better version with more versatility and better hard snow grip.

At your stats, terrain preferences and age, go with the 170. Plenty of ski for you in that smaller size and you will gain maneuverability and swing weight.

Have fun its an SE tester favorite and a great one-ski quiver!

Hello.

Your site is unbelievable for reviews and info!

Looking to replace a pair of 180 cm 2017 bonafides for Skiing out West. I’m 5’10” 200 lbs. Im relatively happy with the length of my current skis in tight trees/moguls, but would like a little more stability on firm/groomers….looking for a “Goldilocks” ski I guess.


Would bumping up to the 184cm length on these offer similar performance in tight stuff, with more stability for carving? Or should
I size down to 177cm?

I find myself gravitating more towards on-piste as I get older….but not ready to completely give up
Off-piste or the trees yet.

Thanks!
Question by: Dave on Jan 15, 2022, 1:40 PM
Hi Dave,

Thanks for the compliments! We work hard to provide the most comprehensive reviews and news.

At your height, weight, skiing ability and terrain preferences, going down to a 177cm length would certainly provide more maneuverability, less swing weight and the ability to make more rapid, quick turns when you need them most in tight trees and bumps. The M6 is plenty of ski , so going a size down a size would not take away from the skis stability for carving what so ever. We say go for it! Wil make those quick reactions that much easier and will certainly still deliver the damp, precise grip that this ski is known for on hard pack and groomers.

An SE Tester favorite as well!

Hi Zach,

The M6 would be a a great ski for you. A SE tester favorite, a well rounded and versatile ski, its one of the best all-mountain one-ski quivers out there. At your height, weight and ability level, go with the 184cm length.
