Strenghts:
Competent and versatile.
Quick from edge to edge relative to its width
Playful as well as terribly speedy

Weaknesses:


Summary:
Have now run over three weeks on these.
A week of ski instructor training took place 3 and two weeks ski instructor in Hemsedal. Can not but praise this ski because of its versatility on the mountain for a skier and ski instructor too ;-)

Works the gun in short-range and mid-range and really stands out in true Völkl spirit when it comes to speed stability. My legs and my technology, which I still consider to be above average, have given up before the ski when it comes to squeezing carving wings in a steep piste. Before then there are lots of turns and popping in all sorts of turns :-) If you're a little sneezing and you or the kids want to get out of the piste or into the woods, then the cannon goes underneath the feet as well.

In summary, there is a reason that RTM 84 is a test winner, it is a really competent pistol ski, which I think suits very many even those who have to buy / run on head world cup rebells or the like .....

Riding style: from self-taught off-piste fox to ski instructor to step four with a penchant for fine peak trips with steep runs down
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Great edge grip. Very stable at high speed. Trives best in really hard carving, but still quite tense in short-range. Suitable for the fastest and most stable of the piste

Weaknesses:
19m radius means that it takes some speed to get really cool. If you want to trim and play, or harva with the children then you should choose other skis. No weakness really, but only a result of the features of the page.

Summary:
Excellent skiing for fast and hard driving in the piste, yet flexible enough to never feel completely wrong.

Riding style: Piste
Length on the ski: 182 cm
Riders weight: 88 kg
Riders length: 183 cm

Strenghts:
A superb skate that fits equally well in the black backs, puck piste or in the green slopes. It follows everyone's turns exactly and is very stable and safe as a good ski should be.

Weaknesses:
Are no!

Summary:
Can really recommend this ski for the used skier.

Model year: 2015
Riding style: Pist and top trip.
Length on the ski: 171 cm

Strenghts:
Funny skiing and working in both short and long turns. Easy to edge and answer well. Do not take long to get to know the ski. Works really well in uneven ground and a little off piste

Weaknesses:
Have spent several years with head supershape with 66 mm waist. When I went faster with rtm 84 (70 km / h) on icey surfaces, it was difficult to get a bite on the surface and the ski was somewhat slippery. Maybe because I'm above rocker.

Summary:
Canoe skiing for skiing focused on piste and looser ground. I missed a bit of bite on the skis on a lighter surface. Maybe because I did not manage to squeeze the skid enough. A really safe ski that does what you want (maybe a little safe if you are looking for a really demanding ski) tested in the seal 2 days and trysil 1 day.

Strenghts:
Lightweight, fast and stable

Weaknesses:
Slightly sluggish at lower speeds

Summary:
This year's Völkl RTM 84 has much more than its name in common with previous full-rocked vintages, except that it's a cruel pistachio. Lightweight, while it bites hard and precisely, but what really makes it stand out is the speed of speed, the faster it goes and the harder the skid is squeezed, the more stable it will be! :-)

Is it better than previously RTM 84, in some cases absolutely, clearly stable and comfortable on hard and uneven surfaces. But not as swift as the old 84an who, with its full-roger profile, answers more "intense " on powerful edging. But in summary, yes, a cruel pistol skiing that suits many. But take a look at the new RTM 86, which I personally think is the straw sharper ...

Tested in Tandådalen, January 2015, very good base with stable snow and less icy parties. Many thanks to Skistar ConceptStore in Tandådalen who gave me a private test day! :-)

Strenghts:
Extremely lightweight. Pretty and funny. Nice cut & fastening. Easy Loaded. Works for everything from Central European gobb carving on the low-speed lane to pushing properly.

Weaknesses:
Not that little extra stability when driving at max. Compared to Völkl Mantra, which are my favorites, RTM is not as much freight trains when driving on rough surfaces at high speed.

Summary:
Finfina pistskidan. Looking forward to buying a pair.

EDIT 2013-09-20: Now I could not stand anymore and bought a pair :)

Strenghts:
Awesome swinging ski that despite its width feels fast from edge to edge. Quickly swings and stable in both short and long turns. Good on hard surfaces and brilliant when the substrate is a bit softer and soaked. Incredibly easy and forgiving. Hard to fail if you have a good technique and like to carve on all surfaces.

Weaknesses:
Not as subdued as a more pistilized racecarver, which makes the ski easy worried about hard-hit surfaces and less precisely in the cutting edge.

Summary:
The best and funest allround ski slope I've ever run. Extremely lightweight, versatile and forgiving without being the slightest messy. The skate is full-roasted, that's a fully reversed span, Völkl has really managed to bend the curve and created a cruel ski. Fascinating how easy it is to switch between big and small turns, go over the cord and back on the cutting edge. If you only want a ski slope, this is the right tool!

Model year: 2013
Riding style: Whatever! Unskilled but safe.

Strenghts:
Haha! All! The world's best allround skiing is hereby manufactured. Stony hard and can be pressed (almost) as hard as a race-skid. But the little continuous and even rocker leaves a little more room for forgiveness. In fact, it's possible to tink a bit with it when the thigh is over. Which they sooner or later do because the ski invites to crazy hard driving. The rocker also makes it possible to push the radius quite well if you have had your leg bend well during the preseason. Possibly that Ted Ligety might "push through it" but for ordinary mortals this will be better than a pure race-skid because it also handles upset and cheeky with big bangs. It goes like a tanks in 120 by jamming and actually works in powder (although it's clearly not where it's best). But the rocker makes it easy to surf. The lack of width below the foot is not really disturbing. What lies in the dish is rather that it's so hard. But it delivers unimaginably well even in pillows to be as overwhelming in the piste as it is. If you drive in Sweden, this is the only ski you need. (Beyond that the skis you have when you're kneeling are performed yourself because it's not possible to put "tur-binding" a la Duke or F12 etc. on it. Which one would not do even if it was true that it's certainly not ngn lightweight)

Weaknesses:
Well ... In the name of honesty none. It may be that it may be a little overkill for those who do not need all the power it delivers. In order to really make use of it, you need to know what you are doing. Otherwise, you can buy something a little nicer (and cheaper). It is also best with a pair of real-time razor-puzzles on the feet. It is clearly more manageable in a pair of ljublå Lange than in a pair of Dynafit touring pants.

Summary:
Köööööp! It's really the best all-round ski run ever built. High speed but still with manageable radius, liiiite forgiveness thanks to the rocker, tanks in the runway, surprisingly good in the offpiste.
