Völkl RTM 76 Elite 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
This year, we reviewed the RTM 76 Elite from Völkl in a smaller size (161 cm) than requested for this category, which makes it more accessible but reduces performance.
The ski rotates extremely easily, and the drifting tail makes wedge turns and first skid turns easier. Skid turns are intuitive and consistent.
Unfortunately, since it was reviewed too short, the ski was less happy when pushed to its limits. At higher speeds, the lack of stability becomes tricky, "limiting the ski's potential for progress."
The RTM 76 Elite from Völkl is great for all beginner to intermediate riders who've already begun their first carve turns. We recommend a larger size as, in our opinion, the 161cm is better suited to smaller riders.
- Good rotation and turn initiation
- Great for snow plough and carving
- Limited speed
- Not as happy in long turns

Who's it for?
The RTM 76 Elite is a middle of the range ski at 76mm with a straight sidewall under the waist. It comes with Marker vMotion bindings, a relatively light integrated system and features a wood core for more technical skiing, while at the same time remaining comfortable for riders. An ideal ski for beginners to experts.
