The Mantra has been an icon in the all-mountain world since The fifth generation Mantra, dubbed the M5, is set to do the same but with a new construction strategy. The Volkl M5 Mantra also features a rocker-camber-rocker profile, allowing it to perform in any situation. Jason Levinthal and his team use maple wood in the core to provide skiers with great power, stability and handling. Thumbs up. On the flip side, nose rocker and slight early rise in the tail make it super nimble, and carbon stringers with interwoven flax fibers in the core ensure an ultra-smooth ride no matter the snow conditions.
A directional shape with camber underfoot and a Titanal laminate provide the ski with power and stability on harder snow surfaces. Its lively poplar wood core and rocker in the tip and tail ensure that it can change directions and take off on a dime. Icelantic has always been known for its incredible graphics featuring artwork from co-founder Travis Parr, and the Icelantic Pioneer 96 continues that tradition.
Its topsheet utilizes bamboo wood and a topographic outline paying tribute to the Rocky Mountains, where Icelantic is based. As for how the Pioneer skis, take it from our testers. Icelantic utilizes poplar wood with triaxial-braided fiberglass for a combination of stiffness, weight savings and energy, while tip and tail rocker lets the skis swivel when called upon.
Anyone could get on this ski and have a blast. The ski features a full camber construction and full-length sidewalls, giving it tremendous power. Blizzard implements specially shaped Titanal underfoot and unidirectionally-shaped carbon fiber in the tip and tail. This ensures torsional rigidity through the gut of the ski but a decrease in stiffness in the tip and tail for incredible maneuverability.
Armada built the ARV 96 Ti for those who prefer a little more giddy up in their skiing step. It utilizes the same chassis as the ARV 96 but features two layers of Titanal, running the length and width of the ski, stiffening it up, allowing you to max out the speed limit each and every time down the mountain. Guaranteed to keep you smiling all day. While it is featherweight, thanks in large part to its karuba wood core, the use of Graphene, Koroyd and carbon fiber in its sandwich construction stiffens it up without any added bulk.
The Black Crows Daemon belongs in a cinematic chase scene; it can stop and change direction at the drop of a hat and has a serious need for speed.
Black Crows built this ski with full reverse camber and a flat profile underfoot, allowing it to pivot like a dream and handle everything from tight trees to steep chutes. The Chamonix, France-based manufacturer utilized poplar in the core for a blend of stability and energy, then added a Titanal plate covering the middle two thirds of the ski for dampening and rigidity. This ski truly does it all. Elan has refined the award-winning Ripstick with this sleek, sexy Black Edition, available for The premium ski boasts an all-black topsheet supported by a high-tech carbon construction for a boost in both performance and flair.
An external carbon finish on the topsheet provides that ultra-sleek look. I became so fascinated by this world — as a feminist, wife, mother, and writer — that I decided to set my next young adult novel, Devoted , in this universe.

While researching the book, I had the chance to interview young women raised in Quiverfull homes who have since left the movement. Their stories and courage inspired me. Can you explain the belief system instilled in you as a child? When did you realize it was different from the way many others are raised? I was raised in the Christian fundamentalism by parents who had a large family and homeschooled [us].

Some call this Quiverfull, from a Bible verse, which suggests that God will bless the man who has a lot of kids "he whose quiver is full of arrows". One of the early moments where it hit me that I was different from other kids was when I started telling my kindergarten-age friends I wasn't allowed to see things they all watched, like Rugrats or The Little Mermaid or Lion King. My parents said the kids in those movies had bad attitudes and dishonored God by how they treated their parents, and so we weren't to watch those things in fear we would mimic that behavior. What would surprise people the most about what it's like to be raised Quiverfull?
I think people focus so much on how well-behaved kids who are raised in families like mine tend to be, and don't realize that the good behavior is not usually genuine but is often out of fear of serious consequences from the parents. Were there any positives to being raised Quiverfull? I love my siblings and wouldn't trade them for the world. Because of being the oldest of nine kids, I'm a capable person in a crisis and I'm patient to a fault.
I've practically raised five kids, so I'm awesome at cooking, basic first aid, bedtime stories, organizing, and making killer birthday cakes. Anything related to idealized s housewife life, I've got it down pat. Except for making aspics.source link

I didn't learn how to make aspics. How did you leave the movement? Was it a sudden realization that it was not for you, or was it more gradual? It was gradual.
I tried so hard to hold onto my parents' beliefs and worldview because it was all I had ever known, and leaving that world would mean an entirely new culture and way of approaching people, life, and myself. The first big break came when I wanted to date a nice, respectable young man I'd met at my religious college and my dad told me I didn't have the spiritual discernment to make that decision for myself.
This caused cognitive dissonance issues, because just a few weeks before, I'd changed churches and my dad had told me I was "spiritually" an adult and could make that decision for myself and he'd trust my judgment. In our world, choosing a church was almost more important than choosing a mate, so this didn't make any sense to me.
Later, I got utterly fed up with the churches I'd grown up in because I kept finding out that they'd protected child abusers, rapists, and men who'd beaten their wives, all in the name of redemption stories, "biblical" male headship, and complementarian theology. You live a pretty secular life now. But do you still feel like there are things you don't understand about "worldly" culture because of how you were raised?
For example, references to pop culture? I don't really like watching movies still. Or TV shows. It's really hard for me to sit through them after so many years of just not watching much or any film-based media. I'm still learning how to discover new music on my own — it took me years to find new artists I liked after decades of only contemporary Christian music.
Oh, and club dancing. I can't take it seriously. I can do it, but I just end up feeling snarky and laughing until I'm weak. And I'm still pretty slow on the uptake with pop-culture based humor. What's your relationship with your family now? Would you still consider yourself religious or spiritual?
My mom and siblings and I are still really close. I've navigated some boundaries for relating healthily — we know we disagree on some things and just don't talk about it. My siblings who are closer to my age are pretty well ideologically aligned with me these days, and we're really tight. I'm not religious and I'm definitely spiritual but agnostic. I practice mediation and yoga and read tarot, but hold all of that super loosely.
I'll probably never be a true believer in any ideology ever again. What were your reading habits as a child? Were there books you wanted to read but couldn't?
