Made to make short work of perfect groomers, leftover crud, trees, bumps, and everything in between, Volkl's RTM 86 UVO Ski is one of the best all-mountain rippers out there, and the fact that it comes with the iPT WR XL 14.0 FR GW Binding just makes this killer board even better. Volkl's RTM (Ride The Mountain) series is a do-it-all benchmark, and even though it's the widest in the family, it's just as edgy, nimble, and versatile as the slimmer models. This is due primarily to Volkl's 3D.Ridge construction, in which the Extended Sensorwood poplar and beech core is milled to be thicker in the middle and tapered towards the edges, giving you plenty of power and stability along with a quick, agile feel that will let you mach down groomers and shimmy through tight spots with equal comfort. 3D sidewalls provide plenty of edging powder, and a single layer of Titanal keeps the RTM damp, stable, and powerful, so you can plow through chunder and push the speed limit when the fresh corduroy is calling.
If Titanal alone doesn't provide enough dampness for your liking, take note of the RTM's UVO vibration-reduction technology. It might look like a an anonymous bump on your tips, but this ingenious design employs a small counterweight that moves independently of your tips to counter vibration in all directions, so you can ski with smoothness and enjoy reliable turn initiation, not fight your chattering skis through high-speed turns.
The RTM also ships with Volkl's iPT WR XL 14.0 FR GW Binding, which is integrated directly into the ski for better feedback and more precise input, so your skis feel like an extension of your feet. The Wide Ride XL footprint is specially designed to help control wider skis and access edges quickly and precisely, so you never have to wait for the ski to bite after you've rolled your ankles into a turn.
