2023 Volkl Deacon V-Werks Skis w/ Lowride XL 13.0 FR V-Werks GW Bindings
Volkl Deacon V-Werks Skis with Lowride XL 13.0 FR V-Werks GW Bindings
The Volkl Deacon V-Werks skis with bindings is a ski that is taken from the existing Deacon 84 model and enhancing it with the use of Carbon fiber. Its shares the same shape, dimensions and rocker profile as the 84, but with a slightly different construction. Let's start with tailored carbon tip and tails, there is grid of carbon fiber to give the tip and tails of ski additional torsional strength. This is a precise all-mountain ski, leaning towards the front side a bit more. It's a very strong carver, and will respond well to fast, aggressive skiers who push this ski to preform to its limits. The skis really shine once the groomers get skied up and get choppy at the end of a ski day, where the ski knifes through anything and everything and lets you continue to carve all day long. This ski has a ton of responsiveness and energy, all due to the addition of the carbon, and a 3D Ridge radius sidecut. The carbon also makes this ski a bit more agile and responsive to take them off trail, with a lighter side cut and swing weight, the tip and tails are less catchy due to its tip and tail extended radii. The highlight and strength of this ski is its on trail carving performance. If you're the type of skier that values a precision and precise oriented ski, the Volkl Deacon V-Werks with system V-Werks bindings would be a great set up for you.

That one only comes as a system, not flat. Have fun!
You get bindings!
I am an intermediate - advanced but enthusiast skier (skiing with good carving technique red slopes and the black ones, with less good technique.
My speed varies from 40-50 Km/h for black ones, to 70-80Km/h on the red ones. If I have to give myself a rating, I would go 6-7 out of 10-if 10 is for professional athletes).
I am 172cm and 82kg, pretty good physical condition, and I want a ski for spending 70-80% on groomers.
I want to get the V-Werks as an enthusiast, but I have my worries about the handling.
On the Volkl site, it says it needs a slightly less skier level compared to the Deacon 84.
May I have your recomendation? (Sorry about the tons of information).
The main difference between the two skis is the build. They both share the same dimensions and rocker profile. The addition of carbon fiber in the V -Werks ski makes them lighter and bit more approachable than the Deacon. The carbon also will help in reducing vibrations torsionally in the ski. So, you are correct in your assumption. Go with the V-Werks in the 172cm length. An incredible carver for the groomed, and you wont have to be on your "A" game all the time like the deacon which needs to be pushed hard to perform.
I was also conferring Stockli Laser AR.
I ski mostly front side. I’m 6’1 220lbs and advanced skier. Much thanks.
I don't think we'll see any more 177's. We do have the Deacon 84's in that size and the difference isn't too huge in performance. The AR is fantastic--a different feel than the Volkl, slightly more flexible but operates really well at various speeds. Have fun!
