    Default The hottest new ski for 2021

    My vote is for the all new Volkl mantra M6, a totally redesigned model from the M5 of last winter.To me this is the most exciting new ski from Volkl for many years, I have a set on order for myself as it ticks all the boxes for someone who skis here and also overseas a fair bit, at 96mm under foot it will be good in deep powder for a skier who is advanced enough to stay centered, good skiers don't need a wider ski for deep powder.This ski will be exceptional as an on piste ski for use in Australia, and will also be great in deeper powder at 96mm under foot.The Mantra M6 has a big change from last seasons M5, with a changed shorter turn radius and best of all a variable amount of Titanal used in the core, heavier more aggressive skiers get full titanal, lighter weight skiers on a shorter length ski get less titanal to suit their weight and level of performance.Volkl decided to bring back the camber in the M5 and M6 and make this once great ski even better than the original, the addition of 3D radius and variable carbon tips takes the M6 to another level.The M6 Mantra's waist has remained at 96 mm, while the tip and tail have gone up 1 and 2mm respectively, giving a shorter turn radius under foot.Reinforced with a tailored Titanal frame, the M6 Mantra still cranks out some solid turns at speed with extreme stability.
