Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Volkl 3D Ridge Technology: It has become a symbol of Völkl lightweight construction. The distinctive characteristic of this technology is a raised central ridge that sharply levels out toward the edge, both in front of and behind the binding. This reduces the inertial mass around the fulcrum to a minimum and significantly enhances the agility of the ski. At the same time, the center ridge allows for a precise dimensioning of the hardness distribution, which leads to an especially harmonious flex on the ski. Despite the weight savings, the 3D.RIDGE ensures that there is no compromise whatsoever in the ski‘s durability and elasticity.

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.

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.

Volkl Tip and Tail Rocker: With a slight rocker in the tip and tail, combined with a classic camber profile under the foot, Völkl engineers have created the ideal blend for frontside carving. Easy, smooth turn entry and exit, with acceleration and rebound as well. The new Extended Tip/Tail Rocker features an elongated rocker profile beginning in front of the toe piece and ‘extending’ toward the tip. A prime example of all elements of ski design coming together, the extension of the rocker allows a stiffer tip flex and more open sidecut radius, promoting stability, turn initiation, and playfulness ALL AT ONCE.

Do the skis come fitted with the bindings.

Hi there,

Im an upper intermediate skier looking for a ski to "grow" into and keep for a few seasons. Would this be a wise choice of ski? I ski mostly groomed runs in Australia, am 6"4, 220 pounds and athletic. Skiing as fast as possible on the runs where I am comfortable. I currently have the Head REV 80 R.
Thanks in advance for your advice.


Most fun skis I've had in yearsReview by jrc
I rented performance skis for a week in Winter Park and after trying a few other skis found these RTM 81s. I found my match. When they say Ride the Mountain they mean it. I took these everywhere - off piste in a foot of powder, on the bumps, in the trees and on the groomers, some of which were pretty scratchy by the end of the day. These skis made it all simple. I felt I could do anything on them. Fast edge to edge, can hold, can crank them short or long smooth GS turns. You name it. Perhaps they wouldn't be perfect in two feet of pow, but they come as close as I've found for the perfect ski. I also tried the RTM 84s which I didn't like, BTW. (Posted on 4/19/2016)
