The all new Volkl RTM 79 is a perfect ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier looking for agility and stability. XTD Tip and Tail Rocker makes the RTM 79 highly maneuverable and quick into and out of turns. The Dual Woodcore XL is Powered by Steel to deliver a smooth and responsive ride on the frontside of the mountain. Volkl's 3D Ridge Construction uses a raised ridge in the center of the ski that lowers the amount of inertia required to roll the ski into tighter carves. A Central Sidewall Construction adds a little bit of forgiveness by having a cap construction in the tip and tail which is easier to slide around if you want to with a vertical sidewall underneath the binding platform that drives a hard edge into firm conditions when things get a little firm.
