Like the RTM 75iS, the Volkl RTM 75 is the least expensive ski in Volkl’s RTM line. Returning unchanged for 2017, it now sells for about $600 (with binding) in many shops and is targeted toward intermediate skiers who stick mostly to groomed runs. It’s built on Volkl’s least expensive core, a combination of foam with a reinforcing wood stringer down the middle. It’s sold only as a package with an affordable 10-DIN marker binding.
The RTM (Ride the Mountain) line is Volkl’s six-model collection of frontside all-mountain skis built for everyday resort performance. RTM skis range in width from 75 up to 86 mm, with higher-performing models at the wider end of the spectrum. All RTM skis are wood core constructions.
Volkl is based in Straubing, Germany (Bavaria), where it has been making skis since 1914. Affiliated brands include Dalbello and Marker. Like K2 and Line, Volkl is a subsidiary of Jarden Corp., which itself became a subsidiary of the Newell Rubbermaid consumer-products conglomerate in 2016. -J.C.
