Just when you think it can’t get any better, the Völkl R&D team proves you wrong – as they have with the Deacon V.WERKS edition. The premium model with 84 mm under the boot and a weight of just 1,830 grams (177 cm length w/o binding) features Völkl’s innovative tailored carbon tips and tails. Never before has it been possible to distribute power so precisely to the areas under the most load while retaining a ski’s full dynamism and agility. The carbon fibers do not constitute a uniform fleece but are arranged instead across the body of the ski using a stitching process, with their orientation and strength tuned to the requirements of each point on the ski. The way a ski behaves is determined very much by the properties of its tip and tail, so they are the areas with the most carbon fiber. The result is remarkably agile, responsive performance on any slope, with minimal effort.

The ski is built using our innovative 3D radius sidecut technology. This makes it possible to optimally tailor the tip and tail rocker design to the three interconnecting radii for excellent smoothness and stability at the highest speeds and in demanding piste conditions. To increase the power transmission and shock absorption qualities even further, the Deacon V.WERKS comes with a 0.7 mm thick Titanal frame that surrounds the most stressed tip and tail areas. This highly complex technical structure produces a completely new combination of liveliness and speed stability. The IPT Lowride binding system is lighter than its predecessor and has been carefully integrated into the ski body for impressive power transmission. If you’re looking for a highly versatile, powerful, super-light, high-performance all-mountain ski for smooth rides in all conditions, the Deacon V.WERKS is a must for your shortlist.

Tech Features
  • 3D.RidgeCentral Woodcore Ridge with superslim wings to significantly reduce weight and swing weight and keep stability where necessary. Our 3D.Ridge technology - is probably the most extreme and effective construction technique that currently exists. It has become a symbol of VÖLKL lightweight construction. 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, the 3D.Ridge ensures that there are no compromises in the ski‘s durability and elasticity.
  • Carbon Fiber Functional Placement - In this construction carbon fibers are no longer incorporated as a uniform fleece. They are integrated through a stitching process in such a way that their orientation and strength meet the functional requirements of each part of the ski. As the tip and the tail are the most influential sections on a ski the carbon fiber is concentrated exactly in these areas. As a result, the power transmission is extremely precise and liveliness and energy are accessible with minimal effort.
  • 3D Hybrid Multilayer Core - A very dynamic woodcore with a combination of hardwood, poplar, beech, and isocore in the center and a super light hard wood poplar mix in the outer areas. The 3D Hybrid Multilayer Woodcore can be found in the Deacon V.Werks.
  • 3D Radius Sidecut - Three radii in one ski for maximum turning & speed versatility in all mountain skiing.
  • IPT Lowride XL Bindings - Especially for wider skis: 10mm lower stand height for increased agility and better edge grip.
  • Binding DIN Range - 4-13
Bindings Do Not Come Mounted to Skis! – Be sure to have a certified binding technician mount and adjust your bindings before hitting the slopes!
