The Mana 2X is a super-versatile twin-tip that carves fluidly on piste, pops in the park, and floats through the secret stashes. With a do-everything 102 mm waist-width, a symmetrical shape, playful flex and lightweight Poplar Core construction, the Mana 2X seamlessly blends precision performance and effortless handling. Recycled but durable materials combined with thicker edges and top-of-class Austrian construction ensure this ski stands the test of time.
LOCALLY SOURCED MATERIALS In an effort to reduce the impact of our supply chain, we strive to source materials from European companies that are based near our factories.
RECYCLED MATERIALS Working with our production partners to eliminate material waste, we now mix base, sidewall and topsheet material scraps back into the raw material used for production, reducing carbon emissions while ensuring the same level of quality & durability. By integrating recycled materials into our ski bases, we reduce the ecological impact of our bases by 75%.
LIGHTWEIGHT POPLAR CORE Poplar is a medium-weight, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having a whole load of vibration absorption capabilities. It allows the ski to pop, butter and stomp like an all-mountain freestyle ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.
FULL STRENGTH SIDEWALL A construction that places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impact and outside damage.
MANA PROGRESSIVE TWIN Inspired by symmetrical freestyle skis, but tweaked for a freeride approach. A slightly skinnier tail than tip means this ski is faster and performs better on the downhill than a completely symmetrical ski. With moderately tapered tips and tails and a combination of generous rocker and modest camber result in a playful character which injects new energy into every day on the mountain.
MANA STANCE With regards to the Mana Series, the narrowest point of the ski is the center of the radius, which happens to be the most intuitive place from which to initiate pivoting of the supernatural freestyle variety. Mounting here also works wonders for carving and popping off the back and front of your skis.
ANTI CHIP MICRO CAP Micro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile join that can be prone to chipping.
BOAT FLEX Heavy rocker is best complemented by solid, stiffer tips and tails, to help settle the skis and power through variable snow. Additionally, the stiff tips absorb more vibration when skiers touch down after going airborne. Just add a touch more flex underfoot and it allows the skis to load up and POP on request.
XL 2.5MM EDGES 7 fractions of a millimeter might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 35% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 1.8mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.
ELLIPTICAL SIDECUT The Elliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turns, lengths, angles and mounting positions (stay tuned for our mounting guide).
SUSTAINABLE WOOD CORE Our poplar, beech and ash cores are sourced from the forests near our European factories, eliminating the carbon cost of transporting raw materials across great distances. Our raw materials are FSC accredited, meaning that the forests from which our wood is sourced are managed to support environmental and societal sustainability.
100% RENEWABLE ENERGY This ski is produced in a cutting-edge facility that runs on electrical power that is 100% renewable. Additionally, its heating energy comes solely from biomass. The factory no longer uses oil, resulting in annual CO2 emissions reductions of a whopping 10 million kilograms.
