2010 Volkl Mantra Bevel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know what the factory bevel is for 2010 Mantra. These do not have any rocker.


I usually bevel everything .5 base and 2.5 side and sometimes 1 and 3.


Thanks in advance.

1 base, 2 side...you'll need to get em flattened for a .5 of course. theyre kinda stout though (torsionally)...maybe a .75/1 base 3 side? just a thought...I have the same pair with a 1/3 smile.gif

Thanks zetune. I was thinking 1/3 on this ski anyway, but curious to know what factory tune is. I'll probably start 1/2 and if I don't like it, change to 3 on the side.

ZT is the man on this type of thing, but I'll add one point. How you tune the Mantra depends upon how you ski it. Is it part of a quiver or used as an all mountain ski in all conditions?  Do you use it primarily in soft snow, or quite a bit on ice? What are conditions on your home mountain? As  a mainly soft snow ski, a 2* side  bevel, 1* base bevel works well.

I use it as my everyday ski in Mammoth, but on deep days I'll go with a wider ski.

thanks for the nice compliment davluri-though i must say that there are others with much to offer as well...canatunamunch, vsirin, primoz, etc...wink.gif)

you've brought up a great point here, btw...a 1&2 is a great compromise for all mtn...not too much to hang you up off piste, but enough to hold on firm groomed:)
