2023 Volkl Deacon 84 w/ Lowride XL 13
The Deacon 84 skis as well on icy slopes as on fresh snow, bringing a smile to the face of experienced skiers. The integrated Titanal Frame delivers power and stability, the new LowRide XL binding with GripWalk allows great power transfer due to the extra low stand height. The ski comes with Full Sidewall and a P-Tex 4504 base. The 3D.Ridge construction, with Titanal Frame combined with 3D.Glass and Tip & Tail rocker also increases the power transfer and higher torsional stiffnes, an improved edge grip and better liveliness. The new 3D radius sidecut technology lifts the carving performance of the ski into another dimension.

Advanced - Expert
- If you enjoy hitting the biggest features in the park, aggressively carving high speed precision turns, and taking the steepest lines you can find, you will probably benefit from the features of an advanced - expert ski. These skis will be engineered with power, stiffness, and rigidity in mind. You will likely find layered construction with materials like carbon, metal and stiffer woods.
- These high-speed carvers will typically have a narrower waist with a full camber profile; maximizing edge grip. Many of them will also have an integrated binding system organic to the ski. If you spend most of your time rocking it on the groomers, these might be right for you.
- An all mountain ski is engineered to be dependable in most terrains you have in mind. This could include heavy snow, steeps, font-side groomers, ice, and powder. If you have one ski in your quiver, this would be a good choice.
- A rocker/camber profile keeps camber underfoot, storing and transmitting energy with the rear contact point remaining near the tail. An elongated, early rise, rockered tip moves the forward contact point medially, providing less edge catch and increased flotation in deeper snow.

System Skis with Integrated Bindings
- Skis that include integrated binding systems can be adjusted to most adult boot sole lengths and are compatible with Alpine (ISO 5355) and Gripwalk (ISO 9523) soles. These bindings will not come mounted; always have a qualified technician inspect your boots and bindings before they install, adjust, and function test your system.
- The DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) scale on your bindings is the ski industries’ adjustment range for the release force settings on your skis’ bindings. This number will be determined by your age, weight, height, boot sole length, and your skier type (I, II, or III; not your skier ‘ability’). This setting should always be adjusted by a qualified technician after a visual/tactile inspection and function test.
*If you’re unsure if your boots and bindings are compatible, please have a qualified technician give them a tactile and visual inspection.
