Marker iPT WR 12 Binding Included:
DIN Range: 4-12

Skier Weight Range: 79-250 lbs

Binding Adjustment Range: 268-371mm

Ideal Target Skier: East Coast Hardpack Lover: This is an excellent ski for East Coast skiers that ski aggressively on the hardpack while still getting off trail a bit. West Coast skiers: this is a carving ski that should only be brought out when the powder is gone and its time to rip the groomers.

Speed: Very Fast: Skiing at this speed means keeping up with the best skiers on the mountain, while still maintaining control.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.

Integrated Binding System: Once mounted, the binding sits on rails or a plate that is affixed to the ski. The main difference, however, is that the binding can move slightly on the rail during the flexing motion of the ski underneath. This setup means the binding does not inhibit the flex of the ski as it is sort of floating on these rails. What this means for the skier: A more even flex and smoother turn, with less skidding or 'chatter' from the ski. This is most noticeable on groomed terrain.

Metal Tip Protectors: These skis have rugged tip protectors made of metal that will help fight against chipping and damage to the tips, which is both a performance and cosmetic benefit.

Dual XTD Transmission: Like the RTM 84, the RTM 80 reinforced 3D construction channels forces to the edges. The major difference between the 84 and 80 construction is in the sidewall compared to the cap. The cap construction on the RTM 80 makes this full rocker ski more forgiving and a bit softer in the general ride characteristics yet still delivers the necessary power reserves for athletic skiers pushing their limits.

Full Rocker: Extended Low Profile (ELP) gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. How? By matching the flex and sidecut with the full rocker (long, gradual bend from tip to tail) profile, the skier automatically gains full edge contact. With a stiffer tip and softer mid-body, Völkl Full Rocker skis offer bomber stability and easy turn initiation combined with uncanny smoothness. The more you put it on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting performance has resulted in several Ski of the Year honors.

Powered By Steel: There is steel layer below the topsheet that helps dampen vibration and increases the overall power of the ski when you get it up to speed.
