Drahtguy Kevin: Völkl introduced these new skis with a big online campaign. I was excited to see what the big deal was. Both models have the same damp, quiet ride that is solid yet forgiving of errors. They hold the turn well but offer no real bang for your buck at the end. The Deacons felt noticeably heavier than most other skis in this category.

Insider tip: The UVO puck on the tip works to quiet the ski.​

UGASkiDawg: The Deacon is a new high-performance frontside piste ski from Völkl. It rewards good technique and desires to be driven at all times.

Insider tip: Don’t expect a poppy ride but a stable, predictable ski with no speed limit.​
