You could say that the term “all-mountain” was coined just for the Deacon. Long, medium or crisp, short turns; cruising or skiing at the limits of speed; soft slopes or hard – if you’re ambitious about performance, look no further.
The Deacon 72 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 Völkl’s engineers to influence curve behaviour with great accuracy.
The whole Deacon range is made with 3D.Glass at the front and rear areas, while the ski is built around our 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; stronger, more direct power transmission and quicker edge to edge.
All in all, it takes noticeably less strength to turn with the Deacon 72 Black. Understatement rules: the Deacon 72 Black comes in fine metallic black and cut-outs in the logo reveal the carbon fibres in the Tailored Carbon Tips.
