Völkl RTM 76 reviews 2018

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

Like the Speedzone 7, Völkl's RTM 76 is very accessible when it comes to mastering skid turns and will help riders advance to more technical turns. The ski is accessible from the middle of ESF class 2, in other words, once riders have mastered parallel turns. It’s slightly less accessible than the Dynastar because the tail hampers behavior to some extent in back-leaning positions. Skiers who are well centered don’t need to worry. The ski will help riders make technical progress remarkably well. It's happy to step up the pace, with very good grip and great stability. Riders can make easy progress to carving/slicing clean arcs with little physical effort. The RTM 76 is an excellent tool for riders who've mastered parallel turns and want to move on to the next level.

Review: Pros

  • Generally accessible
  • Easy turn initiation and rotation
  • Skid turns
  • Good performance and carving qualities
  • Good grip

Review: Cons

  • Slightly grippy and lethargic tail may hamper riders in a back-leaning position
