The RTM 76 Gold provides an easy handling, but supportive ride for skiers looking to up their skills. The 76 mm width makes this ski turn quickly when skiing gradual to intermediate groomed slopes, but this ski doesn't back down. Some even say that skiing an RTM can make you wonder where the autopilot is hidden. These men's alpine and carving skis offer amazing performance in every condition. No matter how hard you push yourself, the RTM will always keep you in control.
Composite Core:This ski features a composite core, which has a softer flex and is lighter weight than wood cores. Junior, entry level, and sometimes even women's models have this type of core to make skiing more enjoyable, and less work.
Progressive Technology:Features very slightly raised areas across the edge in the mid-body of the ski deliver sufficient stability while allowing effortless turn initiation. The soft-flexing tail facilitates drift at the end of turn especially for beginners and low intermediate skiers.
Ideal Target Skier: Progressing Intermediate:This skier is pushing the limits of the intermediate badge, and getting off trail and figuring out how to get comfortable at higher speeds through variable terrain.
Ideal Target Skier: Midwest Hardpack Lover:This is an excellent ski for East Coast skiers that ski aggressively on the hardpack while still getting off trail a bit. West Coast skiers: this is a carving ski that should only be brought out when the powder is gone and its time to rip the groomers.
Speed: Moderate:The speed at which an intermediate skier travels, Moderate means they like to ski faster than beginners, but are never the fastest skiers on a run.
Cap Construction:The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.
Textured Surface:Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces (aka snakeskin topsheet) are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis look new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.
Tip Rocker:This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.
Tip Protectors:Plastic protectors on the tip increase the durability of the skis and reduce the likelihood of a delamination. Your tips are the most likely edges to get cracked, keep 'em safe with tip protectors and your skis will last for a long long time. If the tip protectors get damaged, it is not as big a deal as if it were to happen to the actual skis themselves.
