My first thought on these skis was that they had sort of a techno vibe to them. But maybe with some big heavy hip hop instrumentals mixed in. But then a big blasting guitar solo kicks in. Then maybe a classical interlude. That is how the versatility of this ski struck me. This is not to say that the ski has a split personality, because it doesn't, it's very stable and predictable, that's just how versatile and responsive to input it is. You can put the music on whatever station you want and the ski will play to it, and you can switch up the dial as quickly or slowly as you want. I skied the 184cm, and if you loved the earlier cambered version of the Mantra in a 184, you'll still love the new one too, but my insight is to size down to the 177 for the new, full rocker, version.
