There’s a full-metal version of this ski that’s way more powerful (RTM 86), but the testers are here to talk you out of it. There’s plenty of precision-carve performance in the RTM 84, a mainstay model from Völkl. But it’s not all frustrated race ski. On soft-snow days, it’s wide, light, soft, and loose enough for off-piste adventure, even bumps. When it’s firm, it still carves like a Völkl. Gleason: “Responds well to light or heavy attack,” said Gleason. “Loves to stray from the groomed.”

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Quickness/Maneuverability, Hard-Snow Integrity
