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.


Skill Range:    


  • Full Rocker
  • Dual XTD Trans Sidewalls
  • Extended Sensorwood Core
  • Powered By Steel

2014 Volkl RTM 81 Ski Review
Comments:
Trey, just got done skiing the RTM 81 from Volkl. I'm going to give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. I think this ski is an excellent ski for anyone who is an advanced-intermediate to expert skier, living on the East Coast or in the Midwest, skiing the front of the mountain, pretty much all the time. Totally rips on hard snow, it's got a ton of energy, great edge hold, it's very, very stable in between turns, like you don't really have to think about it and you can push on it as hard as you want. So, if you're a real strong skier, or a progressing advanced-intermediate who really wants to get better, this could be a great ski for you.

2014 Volkl RTM 81 Ski Review
Comments:
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 to expert ski, and yeah, if you're trying to charge the front of the mountain, this is it.

Rick, just got off the Volkl RTM 81. Great ski for the intermediate. Quick turns, snappy, you can push it, you can kind of tone it down a little bit. Great ski in all conditions. 4 out of 5 stars.

2014 Volkl RTM 81 Ski Review
Comments:
Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the RTM 81, this is the new ski in the Volkl RTM line. There used to be an 80 and an 84, there still is, but now there's an 81 in between. I give this 5 out of 5 stars, this ski blew me away. It was extremely fast and poppy, it pushes you out of the turn, really quick to the next turn. Amazing edge hold, loves to do short radius turns, it can do long too, but it re

2014 Volkl RTM 81 Ski Review
Comments:
Hey, this is Tyler here with the Volkl RTM 81. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's a pretty great front side, carving ski. It's good for long turns, it holds a lot of stability in those powerful turns on the front side. So, if you're, you know, anyone that's probably an intermediate to advanced intermediate, I think you'll like this ski.

2014 Volkl RTM 81 Ski Review
Comments:
This is Hans. I just came off the Volkl RTM 81. The RTM 81 is a new ski in the Volkl range. It's a lot of ski underneath the foot, it's really good short and medium radius turns. It's definitely a ski that is designed for somebody that wants to stay on a really poppy ski. I give this a 4 out of 5.
