Next season Volkls

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any info on next season's volkl line? I heard that they're making the Karma a true twin and introducing a new ski, the Bridge. From what I heard it's b/t the Karma and Mantra, I think a 90mm waist. If anyone has any info, please pass along.

The Bridge is an absolutely schweeet ski. For my personal tastes, it is a better all mountain ski than the Karma for those like skis on the slightly easier going side. The Bridge is more damp and smoother than the Karma and although it does have a lot of shape, it feels well balanced. The Bridge joins the Big Trouble as my two favorite twin tip all mountain type skis.

Think of it as a narrower, shapier Gotama.........

The Karma name is gone for next year.

The Freeride line is: Ledge 81mm waist, Wall 87mm waist, Bridge 92mm waist, Mantra 98mm, Gotama 105mm, Katana 111mm, Sumo 125mm.

I demoed a pair of 2007/2008 skis called Volkl AC40 - so where do they fit into that line?

The ac40 is part of the all mountain mid fat line.

Volkl Mantra or the Karma

I am trying to make a decision on either the 2007 Volkl Karma or the 2008 Mantra. I am 6'4" 250 and wanted to see what any ones thoughts were. Ski East Coast for the majority of the time but some West Coast throughout the season. Thanks for any help.

Karma. Mantra is a bit too much for East. Actually, where in the East?

imho the Mantra is a good everyday ski in the east.

Or if you prefer a mid fat that will be more smearable the Gotama is good.

Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine being the east for purposes of this discusion.

Ehhh, depends where in VT and NH. The southern parts dont have as good snow, while the northern parts get a whole lot of snow (even in a bad season). Karma if you are a Sunapee/Gunstock/Mt Snow skiier, Mantra if you do Loon/Jay Peak/etc... Mantra wont hold up as well on the harder stuff in the south.

I would most likely be skiing up in Northern VT- Smuggs, Jay, and some Stowe. Also Sugarloaf Sunday River and then some out West as well. Thinking I might be able to get aways with the Mantra and b/c of my size I could rip them anyway. I demoed a pair out in Steamboat (very different snow i know) but was happy with them on the groomers as well as the backsides. Thoughts?

I think you should stop asking the same question in multiple threads. That's my thought.
