Product details: Völkl Deacon 72 + rMotion 3 12 GW 23/24 Ski with Binding
Völkl Deacon 72 Ski - Ultra-turny through all radii, the piste multi-talent! You could say: the term all-mountain was invented for the Deacons. Whether long, medium, or crisp short turns, cruising tempo or at the limit, rutted or groomed piste, everyone will find their happiness here.
With a centre width of 72 mm, the Deacon is recommended for all those who carve lively through all radii and like to let it rip. With its bright colours, the Deacon 72 cannot be overlooked on the piste. Thanks to its unique geometry with a widened shovel and shortened tip & tail rocker, this powerhouse shines in all radii of turn and can be edged even faster thanks to the two-millimetre narrower centre width of the ski.
Whether long, medium or short turns, every sporty, ambitious skier will find his or her happiness here. This variability is made possible above all by the use of the Tailored Carbon Tips. The carbon fibres applied by means of the Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP for short), used exclusively by Völkl, allow optimum influence on the curve behaviour.
The thickness and alignment of the fibres define the necessary power input and energy build-up exactly where it is needed. The agile blade retraction is particularly positive here. This means that directly at turn initiation, the ski begins to guide in a controlled manner, depending on the use of the edges. In addition, this construction allows a lower weight without any loss of stability. Last but not least, TFP allows the designers to tailor all lengths specifically to the requirements of the target groups.
The entire Deacon range is made with 3D.Glass in the front and rear areas, and the proven multilayer woodcore with a poplar/beech mix is installed in the interior. Two full-surface layers of Titanal ensure the usual effervescence. The riding characteristics of the Deacon 72 are also boosted by the R-Motion 3 GW binding. The shortened plate in combination with the wider hole pattern delivers a more direct, punchier power transmission and allows faster edge changes. The highlight, however, is the two rear screws that are no longer fixed, allowing the binding to glide freely. With improved edge grip, the ski moves harmoniously through the entire bending line without being blocked. Overall, the Deacon 72 is noticeably easier to turn.
For younger or lighter skiers, the Völkl Deacon 72 ski is available for the first time in a length under 160 cm at 158 cm.
