The new Volkl RTM 81 blends the technologies between the two most popular RTM models the RTM 84 and RTM 80. Made for the advanced to expert skier the 81 has the XTD Transmission Sidewalls that have reinforcement channels over the sidewalls and edges of the ski to keep it stable through your entire turn, regardless of the snow conditions, and they will improve your edge hold and power on firm snow. The 81 mm waist is best suited for spending most of your time on the trail, but has the ability to venture off from time to time. A single layer of steel increases the power of the RTM 81, and will provide you with a nice stable ride at all speeds. The Full Rocker Profile locks the RTM 81 in to place at the apex of your turns, absorbs negative vibrations from crud, and will help you pivot with ease in variable snow. The Extended Sensorwood Core is one of the most advanced full wood cores in skiing that extends upward and lengthwise, for unshakeable torsional strength. If you like a ski that has a damp feel, that will be stable at high speeds that prefers medium to long radius turns, the all new Volkl RTM 81 will not disappoint you.

Kyle here with the Volkl RTM 81. I'm going to give this ski a 4 out of 5. You know, I actually really like the RTM series. This one especially if you're looking for a quick, hard carving, edge to edge ski. This is good for your intermediate...Read More

Q: I am looking at the RTM81. I am 5'10''. 170lbs. I like to aggressively ski groomers most of the time. I am currently skiing on Salomon RS800ti skis at 170 length and like them. I was wondering if you recommend the RTM81's in the 171 or the 176 for me. I like to ski fairly fast on groomed runs. I was unsure when dealing with the full rocker design Thanks--Dave

A:Based on your stats and skill level, I would recommend a ski like the Volkl RTM 81 in the 176cm length. This should provide you with an ideal combination of nimbleness, stability and speed for your skill level and skiing type.

Q: I am 32, been on the mountain since 3. All East coast, I ski aggressively, but a 9 year hiatus has a once advanced skier down a notch. I am back and looking to buy new gear for the end of this season and next... At 5'11" and 275lbs, is this ski a good fit?

A:The Volkl RTM 81's are designed for the advanced to expert level skier, and would be a good selection for you if you think you will be able to pick up the sport again quickly.

Q: Hi I am an experienced advanced skier. I weigh 375 pounds, 6'3" tall Will the 1.81m Volkl RTM 81 work for me? Are thr bindings suitable for my needs or is there another marker binding yo would recommend instead? Many thanks

A:The bindings on the Volkl RTM 81 system skis will only be designed to hold up to 250 lbs. I would recommend going for a flat ski with the Marker Jester or Salomon STH2 WTR 16 bindings.

Q: I'm on a pair of twin tipped Icleantic Pilgrims (179). Great soft snow ski but i'm looking for a frontside ski for VT. I'm 6', 210 so I'm assuming the 176 would be a good size...

A:Based on your stats and skill level, I would actually recommend going to the 181cm Volkl RTM 81's for a solid set of sticks.

Q: So, I'm thinking about this ski. I had an old G4 that I loved, 177 length. Then when I was sick the husband got me a 724 Pro in 163 because I was frail. Still like it, but it's worn out. Then he got me some kind of K2 women's powder ski that I HATED. Now I'm wondering whether the RTM 81 would be best for me in a 166 or a 171? I'm a woman, 5'5", but I'm heavier than most men. I'm old, so I mostly ski trails, but sometimes I follow the big boys. I really think the 81 is my next ski, but not sure about that length. Any suggestions?

A:The Volkl RTM 81's would be a solid choice for all mountain skiers looking for a hard carving on any slopes but especially groomers and on piste carving. As for length, all modern parabolic models are going to be based mostly on weight, so without knowing specifics I couldn't say for certain.
