The Deacon 79 continues to be energetic, quick, and grippy. Constructed with Volkl’s Dual Wood Core and paired with a steel laminate as well as Volk’s 3D Ridge Technology, it takes an entry level ski and makes it much burlier for the intermediate to advanced skiers without breaking the budget. This wood core isn’t as strong or stable in the upper-level Deacon, it is very comfortable for those looking to develop their abilities. With the 3D Ridge keeping the bulk of the mass running through the center of the ski it creates a front side carver that has unparalleled stability that still keeps the ski snappy and full of energy. The 79mm underfoot gives you slightly wider front side ski and a narrower all mountain, this combined with the sublte rocker gives you a ski that is versatile if you find some crud or get lucky with some fresh snow.
The Deacon 79 is also equipped with a set of iPT WR XL bindings, a beautiful compliment to the skis, as well as being grip walk compatible.
3D.Ridge Technology – The distinctive characteristic of this technology is a raised central ridge that sharply levels out towards the edges, both in front of and behind the binding. This reduces the inertial mass around the fulcrum to a minimum and significantly enhances the agility of the ski. At the same time, the center ridge allows for a precise dimensioning of the hardness distribution, which leads to an especially harmonious flex on the ski. Despite the weight savings, 3D.Ridge ensures that there are no compromises in the ski‘s durability and elasticity.
