There comes a time in every parent's life when they look up the hill and go, "There's a good skier . . . wait a minute, that's my kid!" That's the moment you know they need real ski, and no company does it better than Völkl. The Völkl Mantra Junior Skis, as one might expect, emulate the power and precision of the adult Mantra skis, but without the Titanal frame or carbon webbing. They still offer rock solid Full Sidewall construction and the Power Construction layup, and deliver the kind of performance good kids deserve.
