FREE Sunglasses with Purchase
You could say that the term “all-mountain” was coined just for the Deacon. Long, medium or 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 76 certainly can handle tight radii, but if you want to switch between wide, super-clean racing lines and fast, sporty carving, you definitely need to try this ski. Long turns taken on the edge all the way are pure pleasure with the Deacon 76. And as of now, the Deacon 76, thoroughly redesigned and sporting strong colors, will not go unnoticed on the slopes. With its new geometry, widened shovel and shortened tip and tail rocker, this powerhouse can conquer turns of any radius. Its versatility is magnified by Tailored Carbon Tips. Carbon fibers applied using Völkl’s exclusive Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP) process allow our engineers to influence curve behavior with great accuracy. The strength and alignment of the fibers 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 our designers 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 our renowned multilayer wood core featuring a mix of poplar and beech. Two full layers of Titanal give the ski its familiar vigor. The Deacon 76’s ride is also augmented 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, and significantly less overall force is needed.
- TAILORED CARBON TIPS: In this innovative manufacturing process the new Tailored Carbon Tips are produced by embroidering the individual carbon fibers onto a carrier material. This allows them to be positioned exactly along the stress lines, opening up completely new possibilities, for performance at the front of the ski, which has a decisive influence on the handling of the ski. The stiffness, torsion and thus the skiing characteristics can be specifically adjusted via the fiber thickness and millimeter-precise alignment. In this way, the fibers guide the dynamics to the areas of the ski where they are needed. The visibly integrated Tailored Carbon Tips are light, allow an agile shovel reaction with less effort and quickly build up energy. The Tailored Carbon Tips thus reach a new level of precision, direct tip response and active skiing pleasure.
- MULTILAYER WOODCORE 1: The side wall is laminated to extremely stable layers of wood on the sides of the sandwich core. In combination with a more flexible, lighter wood built into the center of the sandwich core construction provides numerous advantages: The hardwood part immediately adjacent to the sidewall effects a higher power transmission, improves the edge grip and supports the edge against external forces. The low weight of the softwood part in the middle of the ski brings more agility and maneuverability and reduces overall ski weight. The combination of both wood types running through the entire ski length contributes to an optimal distribution of the ski stiffness increasing the steering precision. It is the first and only sidewall/core technology intended for aggressive on-piste and racing use and capable of delivering the victory and defeat, even if it is measured in hundredths of seconds.
- 3D.GLASS: Compared to classic glass constructions the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the tip and in the tail area result in an increased edge grip and a more vivid rebound behavior in turns. 1 3D.GLASS IS INTEGRATED IN THE TIP AND TAIL OF THE SKI // flat glass under the binding making the center softer // variable turning at any speed 2 GLASS ABOVE THE SIDEWALL //providing additional support for superior edge grip on icy slopes 3 VERTICAL GLASS IN TIP & TAIL AREA //more pop for faster edge to edge changes
- FULL TITANAL: The titanium setup makes the ski agile and dynamic. Especially friends of a hard, fast and aggressive riding style benefit from the quick response of this construction.
FULL SIDEWALL: Direct and strong powertransmission with full length sidewalls.
RMOTION 3 GW: Exclusive Marker Völkl plate-binding system for high class on-piste skis. BENEFITS // Smooth & consistent drifting at moderate speed // Tighter turns with less efforts at higher speed.
TIP & TAIL ROCKER: Character: Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle
