Feels all-mountain naughty.
With hard-carving dimensions and a full rocker, the Volkl RTM 80 Ski with IPT Wideride 12.0 D Binding may make you feel like you're cheating. The rocker gives you such easy turn-entry, and, on soft snow when all your friends are auguring, effortless float that you'll feel a pang of guilt. But you'll get over it.
- Extended Low Profile Full Rocker features a soft and even flex from tip to tail, which means maximum edge contact for carving and float in soft snow
- Extended wood core features a solid central section that extends toward the tip and tail for a lively and forgiving feel
- Steel-enhanced Dual XTD Transmission construction uses reinforcement channels over the edge for a smooth, stable ride
- 80mm waist is the perfect width for high-speed carving, and, coupled with a full rocker, wide enough when it's fresh
- Moderate-radius sidecut is versatile and quick edge-to-edge
- Marker iPT Wideride 12.0 binding with 4-12 DIN
- Binding's Triple-Pivot Elite toepiece and Inter Pivot heel provides safe release, efficient energy transfer, and power

I am a 5'4", 135#, expert woman skier. I regularly ski Volkl Race Tiger RC, 158cm. I tried the Volkl RTM 80, 166 cm. they were a lot of fun, but felt too long. Would a 161 cm be a better length for me?
The 161 cm in this ski would probably ski just like your Tiger as this one has some rocker so it will ski slightly shorter than its true 161 cm. If you want something more stable at speed but less nimble the next size up would be for you. The 166 cm may feel different at first you will adapt to it, unfortunately it just wont be as nimble as something shorter but will provide more stability.
Thanks for the input, Bill. I tend to travel at fairly high speeds, and did find the 166 cm , although much softer than the Tiger, quite stable. They handled fairly well with slt's and also better with gs turns. .need to ski them again and run them thro the paces.
