The Volkl Men's RTM 73 Skis area a modern novice ski with tip rocker. The most important factors when learning to ski are quick and early positive results, followed by ski performance that continues to improve along with the skier when the next winter comes. For beginners and recreational skiers in particular, pleasure and safety go hand in hand as critical factors. The RTM 73 delivers both, with more than enough ski performance to foster improving skiers to try their first carved turns. With the Tip Rocker, the variable edge length in the shovel area makes the ski easier to turn. The cambered area underneath the foot and at the tail provides control and support for novices and intermediates.
