Powder turns and cliff hucks get all the glory, but that just means people forget how fun it is to rail turns down perfect corduroy on a ski like the Volkl RTM 81. Made to slice the frontside to ribbons, the RTM uses Volkl's 3D Ridge design, which employs a thicker layer in the center of the ski that tapers towards the edges, which helps the ski feel agile, nimble, and quick edge to edge while maintaining a sturdy flex pattern that can be ridden hard without being overwhelmed. The snappy 3D Ridge wood core has also been milled to mirror that same flex pattern and keep the ski light while driving energy into the edges, so you'll be able to ski with unrivaled snap and power on perfect groomers, sketchy ice, and even some soft snow. To help you stay sturdy when you're pushing the speed limit, Volkl laid down a steel laminate to give the RTM a high powered backbone that won't be overwhelmed when the going gets a little choppy. It also outfitted the RTM with an iPT Wide Ride XL 12. 0 TC Binding, which integrates seamlessly with the ski and can be quickly adjusted to fit boots of different sizes, so you won't need to remount if you resize your magic shoes.
