They say

The steeper, the better. The Deacon 74 redefines the way you experience the slopes.

We say

The feedback from the team was really positive on the Deacon. Initially it feels very easy to use with great contact against the snow, the skier can always feel exactly what’s going on underfoot. It engages into the turn with no effort, with the well judged nose rocker getting a great balance of easy pivoting, but engaging well when tipped onto the edge. These characteristics make the Deacon a ski that is always easy to adjust through the turn and always feels on your side. It also can consistently deliver a very high level of performance, with a precise, accurate ability, which allows it to carve out high performance turns with ease.
