All about this product



You could say that the term "all-mountain" was coined just for the Deacon. The Deacon with the 72 mm waist was developed for people who like to carve quickly through every radius and sometimes really let rip.

The Deacon 72 Black has been reworked from the ground up. New geometry, a widened shovel and shortened tip and tail rocker bring out the best in turns of any radius. Two less millimetres at the waist allow you to switch edges even faster and with less effort. Its versatility is magnified by Tailored Carbon Tips. Carbon fibres applied using Völkl’s exclusive Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) process allow to influence curve behaviour with great accuracy. The strength and alignment of the fibres define the force you need to apply and the energy that builds up where it’s needed. Agile shovel reaction is a feature of special note. This means that as soon as you initiate a turn, the ski begins to steer in a measured and controlled manner, depending on how the edges are employed. This construction also allows means less weight without any loss of stability. Last but not least, TFP allows to tailor every length to the requirements of each target group.

The whole Deacon range is made with 3D.Glass at the front and rear areas, while the ski is built around renowned multilayer wood core featuring a mix of poplar and beech. Two full layers of Titanal give the ski its familiar vigour. The Deacon 72 Black’s ride is also enhanced by the new R-Motion 3 GW binding. A shortened plate combined with a wider hole pattern delivers stronger, more direct power transmission and helps you switch edges quicker. The real highlight, however, is that the two rear screws are no longer fixed, allowing the binding to slide freely. With improved edge grip, the ski moves harmoniously through the entire line of the bend without being blocked.
