 Overview
 

The Volkl RTM 81 is a perfect ski for the advanced to expert skier that is looking for a nice and stable ride for carving up the groomers. Rocker in the tip of the RTM 81 will initiate turns easier, and absorb negative vibrations that are caused by crud or bumps on a groomer. Camber underfoot will give you a strong edge hold, and tremendous rebound for high speed turns. Rocker in the tail will release you from a turn with less effort, and make the RTM 81 more maneuverable to slice any turn shape you want. Volkl's new 3D Ridge Core makes the RTM 81 more agile by pulling material away from the edges of the ski. The raised ridge in the center of the ski sits in front of and behind the bindings to reduce the amount of inertia around the center of the ski to add extra stability, precise pressure distribution, and the optimal amount of flex. The 81mm waist is very nimble, and has the ability to power through crud very easily. A layer of steel sits on top of the wood core to add extra rebound, and edge hold on firm snow. If you are looking for an on trail ski to rule the mountain with, the top selling Volkl RTM 81 will make a great choice for yourself.

Great all around ski
Comments:
Have skied on Volkl's for 20 years. The RTM 81s purchased this year replaced AX3s. Can't express how much I love these skis. It only got better as the season went on. Have so much more control. Skied groomed and fresh powder with great response.

Great skis but not what it is advertised
Comments:
First, I am a Volkl fan, has been skiing Volkls for many years, and have a great respect toward the brand. I bought RTM 81 as a replacement of Supersport 5-star because it looked like the closest choice according to the reviews I read. I am writing this review to help others avoid the mistake I made. RTM 81 are very good skis but the following was unexpected for me.
RTM 81 is intermediate not advanced-to-expert as advertised. Soft, very forgiving, effortless drive.
RTM 81 does not hold on hardpack or ice which we have here in New England all the time. I guess because it is a tip&tail rocker, sometimes it slides side-wise in the tip in simple conditions even before you put a pressure on them going into a turn. I am used to camber skis, if you ride camber skis correctly but the pressure is too high for them to hold on firm surface, then the entire ski slides. My impression is that RTM 81 may like to be ridden in the back seat.

That said, RTM 81 feels real good on soft snow and on wet snow. They plow through piles of snow on ungroomed surface well.
