Volkl's RTM collection is the heir to the brand's successful Unlimited series of the recent past. When they were introduced, the models constituted industry's first collection of rockered carving skis. Like the Unlimited series, RTM is carving-focused, though each model has characteristics designed to make it versatile for varied conditions. Like its sibling the RTM 84, the fully rockered RTM 80 uses a wide-footprint binding designed to apply pressure more efficiently and directly to the ski's edges. It's designed to be a more carve-centric, user-friendly ski than the RTM 84, intended for intermediate through expert skiers.
