Waist Width: 78
The RTM 78 combines a forgiving lightweight construction with a 78 mm waist for a high-value package suitable for skiers differing abilities who prefer to stick mostly on-trail at the resort. It’s sold as a package with a sturdy Marker 12-DIN binding appropriate to all but the most aggressive experts. Unlike higher-end RTM models, it’s rockered in the tip only, for forgiving turn entries and easy foot-steering. It also lacks the UVO dampening module, which quiets the higher-end models at high speeds. 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.
