Fly over the snow and down the hill without a second thought.
When the urge to fly, to glide above the world on whispers of wind, hits, grab your Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 Ski with iPT WR 14.0 Binding. With this setup, you will soar over freshly groomed and freshly fallen snow with grace and ease. A new entry in the V-Werks family, and 15% lighter than the regular RTM 84, this hard-carving ski has more innovative technology than most fighter jets and is a bit more versatile, too.
Volkl's full rocker design plays a large role in the easy handling of the V-Werks RTM. Volkl matched the flex and sidecut with the gradual bend from tip to tail, so you get complete edge contact through turns. Don't worry about switching up your skis if the hill gets a coating of powder, either. At 84mm underfoot, this ski tolerates a bit of virgin powder.
Like a sandwich cookie, the best stuff about this ski is in the middle. A combination of poplar and paulonia compromise the Xtra Light wood core. Hollowed-out channels on the bottom of the core further reduce weight without sacrificing an ounce of responsiveness. A thin layer of titanium alloy bookends the wood core, enhancing stability and power. Metal Tex Hybrid construction uses a combination of metals to reduce the weight typically associated with cap-sidewall designs, while reaping the dividends of both technologies: torsional rigidity, impact resistance, and enhanced edge control. Reinforcement channels go over the sidewall and edges, increasing support along the outside of the ski to give you greater control and reduced chatter.
The lightweight iPT Hollow-Tech binding interface acts as an energy transmitter, so whatever power you put into the turn gets passed along to the ski. The iPT Wideride 14.0 D V-Werks binding is the result of cooperating geniuses between Marker and Volkl, and is your means of communicating with the ski. Because the RTW V-Werks is 84mm underfoot, a traditional binding won't effectively talk with the entire ski for the simple reason they are too skinny. The iPT Wideride provides 30% more surface contact between the ski and the binding. Add in the fact the binding is mounted closer to the edge of the ski, and now you have a tight line of communication with your ski. With less lost in translation, the ski becomes more agile, responsive, and easier to control

I am trying to decide on length as between...
I am trying to decide on length as between 176 and 181 cm. I am 5'11" and range between 185 - 190 lbs in weight. I ski aggressively on all terrain and also go off piste when snow conditions permit. Mostly ski in the East (Vermont) but also go West occasionally. Currently skiing on 2005 K2 Apache Recons at 181 cm. Please let me know your thoughts. Guys at the ski shop recommended I go to 176.
I'm 6'1" 180-185 and ski aggressively. I bought the 181s and love them but depends on what you want them for. 181s better for carving open mountain but go with the 176 for bumps and trees.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Demo'd these skis last winter in Oregon and awesome carving but good and stable despite just 181 CM (I weighed about 190 and 5'11)
Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 Ski with iPT WR 14.0...
Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 Ski with iPT WR 14.0 Binding-what is the weight in lbs please. Marc
The weight of the IPT WideRide 14.0 V-Werks is just a hair over 60kg. To get the weight of the Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 Ski it would help to know what length you were thinking of ordering.
I think you may have an incorrect link...
I think you may have an incorrect link here. When I click on the Katana V-Werks from the 2014 Ski buying guide (http://www.backcountry.com/sc/winter-ski-guide-13-14?INT_ID=IB13527) it leads me here. Just thought I'd give ya a heads up.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll have our content department get that fixed ASAP.
