RTM 81 Efficiency:
The RTM 81 Efficiency is euro specific model not normally found here in the United States. Its just like the RTM 81 except it has the hybrid efficiency technology. The Efficiency Technology helps save energy without compromising performance. This will give you a longer more relaxing day on the slopes. The main differences are core and the bindings. Instead of a 3D Ridge Core you get a XTD Sensor Woodcore with a 3D Ridge. This makes the ski lighter and has a significantly softer flex without compromising the 3D Ridge Performance. The Efficiency bindings are lighter then then the bindings found on the original RTM 81. The Volkl RTM 81 Efficiency is a perfect ski for the intermediate skier that is looking for a nice and stable ride for carving up the groomers. Rocker in the tip of the RTM 81 Efficiency will initiate turns easier, and absorb negative vibrations that are caused by crud or bumps on a groomer. Camber underfoot will give you a strong edge hold, and tremendous rebound for high speed turns. Rocker in the tail will release you from a turn with less effort, and make the RTM 81 Efficiency more maneuverable to slice any turn shape you want. Volkl's new 3D Ridge makes the RTM 81 Efficiency more agile by pulling material away from the edges of the ski. The raised ridge in the center of the ski sits in front of and behind the bindings to reduce the amount of inertia around the center of the ski to add extra stability, precise pressure distribution, and the optimal amount of flex. The 81mm waist is very nimble, and has the ability to power through crud very easily. A layer of carbon sits below the wood core to add extra rebound, and edge hold on firm snow. If you are looking for a friendly on trail ski to rule the mountain with, the Volkl RTM 81 Efficiency is the ski for you.
Ability: Advanced-Expert Conditions: 80% Groomed - 20% Powder
Max Power Transmission: This construction follows a similar construction philosophy as the Dual XTD, although the reinforcement is somewhat less pronounced, giving the ski a softer feel. This construction provides enough edge pressure needed to rise up to the next level of speed and confidence.
3D.Ridge Technology: Borrowed from the V-Werks line of super premium skis, 3D features a raised ridge down the center of the ski which allows the ski to be thinner, lighter, and more sensitive over the edges.
Efficiency Technology: tunes down the skis from the original model to give you a lighter friendlier ski.
XTD Sensor Woodcore: The core consists of a number of layers of wood glued together using a special patented process to allow the wood and resin to be better bonded. Two additional wood cores stretch along the ski edges for its entire length. The XTD Sensor Wood Core offers an incomparably precise ride and harmonious flex.
Tip & Tail Rocker: The ski has a variable edge length in the shovel and tail areas. The variable edge set between the shovel and tail makes the ski turn-happy. That in turn allows for a stiffer flex setup.
Powered By Carbon: Borrowed from the V-Werks line of super premium skis, a layer of carbon under the core provides lively feel without the weight of using metal.
IPT WR XL 12.0 Bindings: A new integrated binding mounting system with a wider platform and even more precise performance than the original WideRide system.
