New for 2019 the Deacon 76 has been tasked with the seemingly impossible duty of making Icy and firm conditions more fun. Volkl developed a new construction technique for this ski by using there 3D.Glass sandwich design. Incorporating multiple layers of fiberglass around the sidewalls and under the titanal plates this process gives the ski more power and consistency through the turn. Volkl's XTD Rocker combined with full length vertical sidewalls and two sheets of titanal contribute to the Deacon's ability to turn like it is on rails regardless of conditions. If front side carving is the game then the Deacon has come to play.
