Strenghts:
Cruel. Like most people said before a really good grip on the slopes. Have pumped down so I almost flew out my pants .. The grip does not let go. The lactic acid stops ...

Weaknesses:
Do not know what it is. People speak off piste. Maybe it works, but nothing I would do with cushions as much as I would set up in the Dakar rally with an RS6 ... That's what it's a Skidans equivalent to an Audi RS6 Avant.

Summary:
As an RS6, they require their husband / wife if you want to get the most out of the ski. The grip on freshly laid layers is rude, like skating on the slopes like a friend (as an ox bought a pair) described the feeling.

Tried "all " Volki V-Werks skis (+ other brands) before I decided on the RTM. The cod was too narrow over the waist as soon as it got a little bit up or down on the slope. Going through, where the RTM flipped over.

Strenghts:
Most allround. Replaces a courtyard of specialized skis.

Weaknesses:
Not stable at high speed unless you are cut, but you do. Do not be crazy if the tie is integrated

Summary:
Best skis I owned - Extremely lightweight as they are lighter than rtm 84. However, should choose broader depths

Model year: 2013
Riding style: pist, burned offpist deep snow when there
Length on the ski: 181 cm
Riders weight: 100 kg
Riders length: 190 cm

Strenghts:
Fantastic clip! Cut like knives in butter in the piste and finish half-meter pads. Went puckles and Coloradsoskog with them and they were able to cross between puckles and trees as well. Best ski I had. With these and a pair of DPS Wailer I can handle all the rides in the future. So funny to go back again. I never thought so. They lifted my ride a snap.

Weaknesses:
None that I've found yet.

Summary:
Have drowned at Stowe, Val Thorens, Chamonix, Keystone and Vail. In everything from ice to powder. They deliver back what you put into them. With a good deal! If you have the energy.

Riding style: Fort on cutting, bumpy in the woods and with some hesitation in puckles (stuck with a broader smile).
Length on the ski: 176 cm
Riders weight: 90 kg
Riders length: 188 cm

Strenghts:
Is 42 and has been skiing for 36 years. In Åre and the Alps.

Love occurred.

The ski runs straight through the worm in the WM6 and out onto the blue ice in the same back on the same cutting edge. The width makes the slip handy and the edge stability makes me move on with a smile over the spot.

Unbelievably fun skiing!

The 18 meter radius actually feels (as some previously pointed out less.) Perhaps because it's so lightly ramped?

Weaknesses:
The price? But I perceive them as affordable. Still adds a lot of money to skiing every year. Likabra that it's fun to go too :-)

Hard to get to the right length I have heard. (Limited production volumes.) Was lucky enough to find a couple at the Alpingaraget last Easter.

(Ang the price. Do not go out and hunt elk with a salon rifle for that matter. You are worth the right stuff and the job will be done.)

Summary:
Is not an offpiste freak so I give that judgment to others. (Has worked well in Lauben the weekends I've been down in Eberg which is fun since I do not want to make 10,000 for a real wide-skid.)

But, nevertheless, it is usually forced to go as usual, and like everyone else to go in slopes that contain everything from blue, rocky cannon, manchester on natural snow, clean slash, etc.

My old skis (three year old Stöckli Laser that cost a cutter's throat) feel like stone age and total day-long low-lactic acid in a comparison.

Has never been full rocker before, so it may have to do with it too.

Buy! I have super cool! Have it too!

Strenghts:
Enormously versatile skiing. Works in all that the pist has to offer and does not embarrass a wide pistachio offpiste, of course, it's not possible to compare with a +110 ski, but still okay.
Extremely easy to break up cords in the cord to then go back straight to the cut.
Equally entertaining in all slopes from green to black
Very easy.

Weaknesses:
None found after 8 days on the skis in varying conditions

Summary:
A true all-round frontside caravan with enormous performance
Not a lost cut or other stupidity after 8 days on the slope
The skis go wherever I want and how fast and stable I decide, but I'm going to be heavy skinny.

Riding style: 80% piste! Fast and powerful carving. About 40 ski days per season
Length on the ski: 181 cm
Riders weight: 94 kg
Riders length: 192 cm

Strenghts:
Plenty. The ice grip is rude. Even if you are tired of your legs and have a little to resist.

The RTM 84 was cruel. But this is a variant of it on steroids.

Weaknesses:
Hard to get on (everyone should go skiing.) Starting prices are high. Very high on the other hand, it's up to cutting those ones ... :-)

Summary:
The absolute best ski I have traveled (Stöckli's warming models included.) The price is high. But the ski is unlike many others to "hold" for many years when it's totally futuristic compared to many nadra models.

Strenghts:
Incredibly easy-going.
Lace grip beyond normal (even with limited pressure on the skid) - cut according to good Völkl model.
Variable in all modes (grips great in ice even when coming from loose ground with limited pressure on the ski) - Experience this as the biggest difference to a classic ski, ie already with limited pressure you get very good grip and fine cutting.
Most of all impressive, which span they master from high-speed swing at high speed to swing radians, reminiscent of SL race carvers. Likewise, they impress them by being easily driven (ie with limited pressure on the skid), but at the same time responding incredibly well when you gradually increase pressure / load and then grips regardless of the type of backing.
Invite through great grip to the right "broad carving" - the more fun the more you lean in turn (feels like there is no limit to how much you can swing - other than the limb of the muscles).
With good "waist width", the skis also offer good support even in untouched piste.
Is also impressed with the performance (German engineering at a really high level) - promotional pictures, etc. do not make the ski justice. It looks much better in reality (if it does not matter now).

Weaknesses:
Have not found any shortcomings yet. Have not tested the off-piste yet, as I only owned the ski a couple of weeks and the conditions have not been invited to this. Stable skis can probably be found if you want to go straight ahead, but it is still no-one who is interested in getting such a ski.

Summary:
Easy and marginally the best ski I tested and owned so far. Have otherwise run / owned a lot of SL racing cars (Völkl Racetiger SL, Atomic Race SL, Elan Race SL / SLX), "cross-skid" Stöckli Laser SX and also own a pair of Völkl The Code PSI. Have never taken anything as versatile earlier as V-Werks RTM. Highly recommended - something that every skier should have in his ski storage room (or preferably on his feet).

Have also taken RTM84 in both 176cm and 171cm and even these hold an amazing class (V-Werks feels a few straws more).

Runs at least 2-3 weeks a year and has been skiing (active) for a lifetime (> 35 years)!

Model year: 2013
Riding style: Mainly carving at high speed in piste (but gladly go off-piste when good opportunity is offered)! Going rather shortly than big-head normally.
Length on the ski: 171 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg
Riders length: 181 cm

Strenghts:
Awesome good edge grip
Incredible speed stability on edge
No problem to drive short turns
You get into the turn at a kick
Also works well in loose nuts / cushions

Weaknesses:
A bit fluttery when you do not tilt them, at a traffic jam or if you just stand straight up and down on a transport line

Summary:
Have spent one week in Chamonix, and some breeding days in Sweden.
Extremely good edge grip, incredible speed stability on edge, can definitely measure with a pair of clean GS carvers in long fine carvar at high speed, but is much more versatile.
No problem to drive short turns, you get into the turn at a kick.

Also drove a day with a guide, offpiste and they work well anyway even in the razor.

The only downside I found was at peak run-down, then they get a bit fluttery because they have full rocker.

There are certainly better pure race skis or clean puderskidor but it's hard to see that there is any better all-round ski out right now.

Model year: 2013
Riding style: Pist and OffPist

Strenghts:
Speed ​​Stable. Incredibly easy-going.

Weaknesses:
No direct.

Summary:
Went on these for 10 days in Whistler in everything from hard pistol to 20 cm loose. The more you tilt the ski the more it turns. Does not feel like 18 m radius. It's incredibly stable in high traffic, but it's surprisingly nice even when you slow down. One of the absolute most allround and funest ski I've tried.
