The Volkl Deacon 76 is designed to be a ripping carving ski for the aggressive experts that want a powerful ski with a damp and smooth ride on the frontside of the mountain. The UVO dampening system on the shovel of the ski absorbs vibrations on three different axis to keep the shovel of the ski chatter free for better ski to snow contact. Volkl's 3D Glass Construction integrates glass underneath the binding platform, above the sidewalls and vertical strips of glass in the tip and tail to create a ski that is impressively smooth, easy to turn and delivering a strong edge hold. Volkl's Speedwall Multi-Layer Wood Core is packed with energy and rebound. A Titanium Layer adds dampness and even more stability. If you are looking for an exciting new ride that blasts medium radius turns down the frontside at your top speed, the Volkl Deacon 76 is a perfect choice.
