F. A. Z.

The so what. If Volkl transformed Standardski in something Special, then which trades under the name V-plant. The name stands for expensive materials, special Design and, you guessed it, fine prices. For the ski season 2020/21 Völkl sends the Deacon's V-drive for the Snow-covered, a product in the production of high-effort driven and the customer's increased willingness-to-pay is demanded.

This Andreas man, product Manager for Alpine skiing of the Straubing-based company promises a "driving value". As a target he is called, firstly, a lot of drivers who are willing to pay for more power, and, secondly, of the people, which it is according to an exclusive product pleases shows, that it is expensive.

The Deacon's V-Werks is based on the model Deacon 84, Völkls Bestseller from the previous season. This is an all-Mountain Ski with a clear specialization in piste operating. Its generous width has him as a modern representative of its genus: an all-rounder not only for the crisp fresh Morning groomers, but for the changing snow conditions over a whole day, a whole season. Width will help in the soft snow, in the Zerwühlten and has a beneficial effect in the Gewurschtel on the afternoon every day of the war-torn valley.

Identical measurements: 132-84-115 the sidecut is here as well as there. From the Deacon 84 of the V-drive will also be taking on the characteristic of the gerockerten (straightened) tail, what is the ease of turn initiation is used. Furthermore, Volkl sets for both models are based on the principle of the Triple-Seitenzugs. The constructively predetermined Radius is in the Central part of the Ski is smaller than on the tail. To one favor at a moderate pace, effortless, playful tight curves, and on the other hand, for Grip and speed strength to worry when it comes in long arcs downhill fast. Then the boards shovel and tail of the Ski to grip due to the increasing deflection.

Nothing Unusual in this industry

as far As the superficial similarities. You dive a little deeper into the matter, be serious differences. In the case of the V-Werks Volkl uses tailor-made carbon-fiber strands, in order to meter torsional stiffness and flexibility of the Ski in a targeted manner. The use of carbon in itself is not Unusual in this industry, but the Material is not moved here, simply as a Mat. Instead, the orientation of the fibers to a meticulously elaborated Plan. Through the transparent surface of the Ski that is easy to recognize.
