The Deacon features a number of new technologies from Völkl’s RaceTiger World Cup skis to create an incredible carver that left testers thunderstruck. Nearly every tester agreed that the Deacon 76 delivers pure carving joy at high speeds, but a number noticed that it still makes enjoyable arcs at moderate speeds, too.
