Volkl Deacon 84 ski and binding
Volkl Deacon 84 ski and binding is a new ski for the Australian 2019 winter season.
Although it is a totally new ski, it will be seen as the replacement for the RTM84 from past seasons.
I have tested this new ski at Copper Mountain in February 2019 and I think it is better than the RTM84 by quite a margin, a very good ski for a good skier, they have a fairly powerful edge hold, and perform best when pushed hard.
The 3 radius sidecut really makes this a great all round ski for Australian conditions, I personally like the 3 radius sidecut.
Now with a much higher grade sintered ptex base than the RTM84, the RTM84 had a 2100 base the new Deacon 84 has a much higher 4504 base like the race skis.
The Titanal is back, the most recent RTM 84 had dropped the titanal a few years back.
