For beginners and intermediates who prefer a more leisurely pace, the Volkl Deacon 7.2 offers and easy-going personality providing a confidence-inspiring ski experience. Starting with a lightweight build, the Deacon 7.2 provides effortless maneuverability just based on weight alone. Combine that with a 72-millimeter-wide waist and a short turn radius and you get a ski that loves to turn, which is great for controlling your speed and learning proper technique. Effortless maneuverability, tons of user-friendliness and a featherweight build will have you progressing in no time. Volkl's Sensor wood core provides solid stability underfoot and allows the tips to flex a bit easier to help with turn initiation and edge release. A little bit of early rise in the tip of this ski provides some nice forgiveness so you don't feel like you're working too hard to get the ski to turn, but when you do start feeling more confident, camber underfoot provides the necessary edge grip for carving turns on groomers. The Deacon 7.2 is perfect for entry level skiers or skiers who are looking to finally purchase a pair of their own and move on from rentals. If you're ready to make skiing more than just a once or twice a year occurrence and turn it into a hobby, the Volkl Deacon 7.2 is the perfect ski to just get out there and make some turns.
