You want the works? You got the Werks, with the new Volkl V-Werks RTM 84. One of the lightest and strongest performance skis on the market today. Loaded with technology that makes the V-Werks a missile flying down the mountain, we start with the Metal-Tex Hybrid Construction, that is a blend of Titanal, Aramid, and Carbon Fiber. Those materials alone would combine to make quite a ski (or a fighter jet for that matter). Volkl continues to bring it on by using the new Xtra-Light wood core that uses Pawlonia material, along with channels that are milled out of the bottom of the core to save weight and improve performance. The V-Werks RTM is quite the blend of power and finesse all wrapped up in one package. The full rocker shape has a smooth gradual blend from tip and tail that matches the flex of the ski. The rocker shape improves the maneuverability in all snow conditions. The rocker profile gains full uninterrupted edge contact when your ski is put on edge, for clean, yet powerful arcs. At 84mm underfoot the V-Werks RTM is most at home flying by other skiers in a blur on the groomers, but is not too skinny to be in the powder on a fresh day. If you like a ski that is loaded with technology and the performance to prove it, the new Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 is the only one that will answer your call.
I just bought the V-WERKS skis 4days ago and used them 4 times already and wow what a ski. I was skiing with the Rossignol Avenger 82 and then the E88 and now the V-WERKS. Comments about people saying it's meant for heavier skiers is FALSE. I'm 6" 160lbs and its like this ski was meant for me. If you are a really aggressive and hard core skier and know how to handle all types of conditions than this truly is the ski for you. Having a full Rocker ski and being so light weight makes it ideal to control. Every run you take on these skis is different because you learn the ski and work with it and not against it. When I'm on this ski I have 100% confidence on it knowing it's capable on handling pretty much any condition given to you. The immediate competition for the V-WERKS is Stockli all mountain ski and I would say that's pretty good. This one is a keeper. Can't wait to use them again tomorrow morning. Enjoy your skiing and always stay safe.
Telluride for a week. Groomers for 3 Days, powder for 4. I return to the sport after 10 years and these were my choice, the advanced technolgy was my interest. I wiped out on these needless to say, but they stayed on and didn't mess me up. I don't know if it was the fact that I was able to keep them off the slope while in tumble mode or the lightweight of the skis.
But I didn't have any problem with the bindings or the edge.
These were slick on the downhill speed runs, I was unstable on the moguls, but more likely my technique than the skis. I went over a few jumps and they took air nicely, 3-4 feet going about 15 mph. I'm 200, 6', and could sense the speed from passing other skiers pretty amazing. Not sure how the physics of these skis make that happen, I'm an average skier with average technique, and on the turns I was blasting through them faster on each pass.
Hey, it's Hunter here, I just got off the Volkl Werks RTM. I got to ski it back to back with it's narrower sibling, and this is a 5 star ski by far. If your looking for a little bit of a wider chassis, your East Coast do anything ski, your West Coast groomer ski, this thing just rips. Short, medium, large turns, doesn't really matter. It's low swing weight, and reasonable sidecut, you can bury an edge, and just get prepared to bucked into the next turn. So much life, so much energy, your skier that appreciates a vibrant ski will love this.
I have used these skis here in the midwest. Four days of skiing so far. Two were groomed ice, and two were nicely groomed hills. Control was superb even in very choppy icy cordouroy conditions. Speed was phenomenal on groomed runs with no ice. Very responsive. Heading to Winter Park in three weeks. Looking forward to powder.
I skied 4 days on these. Two were crusty frozen corduroy. Held edges well, no sliding, rode well in these conditions. Second day was on well groomed slopes. They could go as fast as you would allow them. GPS showed one run at 50.9 and another at 46.3. Never did I feel like the skis were out of control. Looking forward to Winter Park in March. Eager to see how they work in powder!!!!
Hi this is Trey I just got off an amazing ski the Volkl Werks 84. I'm giving it 5/5 stars. This was like a lab project for the guys at Volkl to do anything they wanted to do as great as they could an they came out with this ski. It is absolutely amazing super lightweight yet holds an amazing edge. You can carve quick turns, big turns, power through the crud on hard snow. It just hooks up boom boom boom love this ski super smooth 5/5.
Hi, Thom here with the Volkl RTM 84 V Werk. Shares the exact same shape as the regular RTM 84, but it gets the tricked out core, and construction. I'm gonna give it a 4/5. Incredibly stable, tons of power, tons of energy, but again it favors a big heavy skier that's gonna be really aggressive. This isn't really one for the lightweight guys, or for anybody that's timid at all, it requires all your effort, and all your attention.
Hey there, Sean here, I just got done skiing the new Volkl RTM Werks ski. I give this ski a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. It's gonna be geared towards that advanced to expert skier. That wants to cruise down all mountain runs, nice, fast, and aggressively. It cuts on long turns, and keeps the edge right into the next turn solid and smoothly. Even on short turns, it's still yet light, nimble, and stable. That's why I give this ski a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
Kyle here with the Volkl V Werks. I love this ski so i'm going to give it a 5/5. Definitely an expert ski advanced to expert. It's completely bomber it pretty much does what you want at high speed, but you got to get it up there to do it. It will hold an edge absolutely phenomenal this thing just grips and rips I really like it. Don't really have any dislikes I just wouldn't direct any beginner, or anything before an immediate on this ski, but love it give it a 5.
Hey this is Luke got done skiing the Volkl RTM V Werks. I give this ski 5/5 stars. I really enjoyed it I actually think this ski is really cool. Super lightweight, super grippy, great frontside carver. Definitely going to be a fun ski for your intermediate through advanced level skiers. Definitely one worth checking out.
Q: I rented the regular RTM 84 and have fallen in love. I can't find anywhere to demo the V-Werks RTM 84s. Can you comment specifically on the difference? I understand the V-Werks is lighter - does that reduce the edge grip or stability of the ski in any conditions? Aside from price, are there any cons to the V-Werks model? Thanks.
A: The thicker metal insert to the V-Werks RTM 84 will make it a much more stable and responsive ski, even at a lower weight. You won't lose any performance in any way; the improved construction amplifies the abilities of the ski immensely to the skier who can utilize them, all while being a good deal lighter than the original Volkl RTM's.
