Details: The 2019 Volkl RTM 81 skis with bindings is a great setup for front-side enthusiasts who love to carve sweet and smooth turns all day long. Do not misinterpret this ski as the third-best performer in the RTM line, it is a total beast. With a wood core and dual steel laminates, the skis are super damp but not sluggish. The steel gives a unique feel that a lot of skiers really like. Volkl's 3D Ridge technology places more mass in the center of the ski so that the swing weight is reduced, ensuring a quick edge to edge sensation. As a result, you'll get amazingly quick and damp turns without the bulk and heft of a race ski. With tip and tail rocker, initiating turns is a total snap while the tail rocker allows the skier to dictate turn shape and duration. Additionally, the rocker in the tip helps the skis float up and over any new snow. While not a powder ski by any stretch, the over 80 mm waist width will handle some fresh, and the overall power of the skis allow them to crush crud and chop like it's not even there. The total experience that you'll get from the 2019 Volkl RTM 81 skis is one of top-end carving. There's nothing like having the right gear for the right day, and with the 2019 Volkl RTM 81 ski and binding system, that's more likely to happen than not for the majority of skiers out there on the hill.
