They say

We say

The new RTM (Ride The Mountain) range waves goodbye to the Unlimited series but uses a similar construction. One of the big differences is the rocker tip and tail, with a low camber underfoot. Like many Völkls, the RTM is very grippy on piste - in fact for all-round blasting on groomed slopes in any turn-shape, it’s a rock-solid performer. In deeper, backcountry conditions it feels fairly narrow and quite stiff. It can handle it, but it definitely feels more at home on the piste.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Pretty grippy: feels similar to last year’s AC30. Strong and solid on piste
Nicko Braxton
Looks the part - love the green sidewalls. A strong piste ski
