Recreational Race Skis
Deacon 76 Masters

This season Völkl has launched a complete overhaul of their recreational racer category, aiming to make their selection as close as possible to world cup-level quality while retaining some of the stability and versatility necessary for day to day resort use.

The Deacon 76 Masters are the widest out of the series, but that doesn’t mean you’re forsaking any capability to fly down the frontside making precise, technically sound turns the whole way.

The Deacon Master series is a good fit for traditionally trained skiers who want something that lets them show off but doesn’t demand 100% of their attention through an entire day of riding.

This combination of function and fun gives them a leg up in the running for the top frontside ski of the year. For those in search of more precision and a feel closer to actual GS skis, take a look at the 72mm Deacon or the Racetiger GS Masters below.
