Volkl RTM 80 Skis + iPT Wide Ride 12.0 Bindings 2012

Volkl RTM 80 Skis + iPT Wide Ride 12.0 Bindings 2012: Complementing the RTM 84 is the all-new Volkl RTM 80 Skis, a ski for the advanced to expert skier looking for more bandwidth in a high performance, frontside/all-mountain ski. Volkl's proprietary full rocker technology gives the skier smooth, direct turn initiation, and a playful overall feel. Its uncanny blend of carving prowess combined with occasional off-piste capability re-sets the bar in this popular category.
Shape
Extended Low Profile (ELP) Full Rocker gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. By matching the flex and sidecut with the full rocker (long, gradual bend from tip to tail) profile, the skier gains full, uninterrupted edge contact. The more you put the ski on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability is truly uncanny.
Construction
Dual Extended Transmission construction makes the RTM 80 more forgiving and softer in its feel, yet still delivers the necessary power for an exciting ride that is accessible to more than just expert skiers.
Double Grip construction consists of raising the height of the construction above the edge, creating added support for the edge, and in turn, better edge grip. The unique Motion iPT interface allowed Volkl engineers to further develop their signature Double Grip construction, creating Extended Double Grip. The added height extends from tip to tail, placing more material where it’s needed - in support of the edges.
Bindings
The Marker iPT Wide Ride 12.0 Bindings - the Wide Ride system is 30% wider than the original iPT (Internal Power Transmission). It was developed specifically for skis 80mm and wider.
The Triple Pivot Elite Toe and Inner Pivot Heel pieces for the Wide Ride system are the same design as those of the Marker Duke and Jester freeride bindings. The components contribute to better performance with a more secure wrap on the boot lug, increased directional elasticity in the heel, and an extremely light construction, allowing the skier to have a wider ski that is as easy to handle and maneuverable as a narrower system.
DIN range: 4-12
Included Bindings
Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.
Core and Flex Pattern
The Extended (XTD) Wood Core is used in Extended Double Grip constructions. More forgiving than the Extended Sensorwood Core, it consists of a full-length wood core sitting beneath the Extended Double Grip chambers.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    Rocker (also called reverse-camber) is just as it sounds – camber turned upside down. Rocker skis have a side profile with a smooth downward curvature and a contact point at the middle of the ski. Rocker skis excel in deep powder. This profile provides the skis with less tip and tail hang up to prevent from catching edges and allows the skis to initiate turns extremely quickly. This profile doesn’t perform as well in icy conditions or on harder snow but if you spend lots of time in deep, untracked snow and like a more playful ski, Rocker is a great choice.
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
