They say

V-Werks is the no-expense-spared, high-end performance lab of Völkl. To this end the RTM uses carbon, aramid and titanal in its construction to deliver the ultimate in piste performance while retaining great offpiste capability.

We say

This is a fabulous ski on the piste. The level of edge-grip is astounding, particularly in medium arcs when it’s brilliant at blasting out smooth, clean turns. This ski delivered the strongest performance on the piste within this category. One of its real achievements is its ability to deliver very high performance while still feeling playful and easy to use. In backcountry conditions it copes with the powder well, the rockered shape helping to bring the ski up to the surface. Overall, a fantastic ski - but at a price.
