"A ski that can handle it all." Sounds to us like a vision worth striving for... and as it turns out, the fabled "Quiver Killer" may have been hiding right under our noses. Introducing the Voile Manti: a ski that spans both of our legendary ski construction platforms.
Its early-rise tip and gradual tail rocker—a further exaltation of the V8's camber profile—equate to playful performance when the snow is soft and deliciously deep. The Manti also has a hard-working tail—an evolution of the renowned SuperCharger—with a radius that executes quick and controlled turns in conditions however firm.
With its lightweight and durable aspen core, the Manti truly embodies our commitment to simple and solid backcountry equipment. But of course, you've come to expect that much by now.
Aspen / Single Carbon
Full-Perimeter Steel Edge
Two lengths of 2mm steel with inset teeth wrap the full perimeter of the ski. Each section meets at the outermost points of the tip and tail, and is painstakingly hand-bent to ensure a precise layup.
Exceptionally durable polyamide, with an irregular texture that slows the accumulation of snow and allows easy removal of snow and ice build-up when the approach is long and/or conditions are freezing.
Reinforced Binding Mounts
Heel and toe mounting areas are reinforced to prevent binding pull out.
Triaxial fiberglass increases dimensional stability along three axis.
Laminated Aspen Wood Core
The hardest wood core we employ, Aspen provides a smooth/damp ride on hardish conditions and more readily takes the abuse when things get out of hand.
Our proprietary carbon fiberglass regulates the ski's flex without an impact on bonding strength.
Sintered Black Base
This ski passes on the base graphics for the sake of an ultra-high molecular density base; making for faster downhill performance and greater wear/impact resistance.
Many claim that a black base increases a ski's maximum speed. Something about "snow melting faster," which apparently has the effect of "increasing lubrication." Sounds pretty nice, right? Of course, we don't really know if it's true... Regardless, you can rest assured that your p-tex repairs will be seamless after your day spent breaking the sound barrier.
I ski the Manti in the 181cm length. The turn shape is what I’ve been looking for. Easy into the turn, easy out of the turn, and light on the up. I’m not a speed demon. It’s all about those nice medium sized turns, and lots of them.
