Read the Review Transcript: Hey I'm Brad. I just got off the Volkl Mantras. 4 out of 5 for me. Definitely it's the big brother of the Kendo. Super damp super smooth ride. Held turns you could feel it's stability was off the charts. So if you're a guy that really likes something that's a little bit beefier, likes to go fast. This would give you a real nice damp ride. It's just an absolute SUV. Through all of the softer stuff it definitely floats well, carves well. Not the snappiest or the poppiest ski i've skied all day. So if you like a ski that definitely tends to get up on edge really quick and sends you sailing into the next turn I might look else where but if you're a guy that just likes a nice smooth Cadalac type ride. This would be an awesome ski for you.
