The new Volkl Secret is a fantastic ride for advanced to expert skiing women who want off trail performance with on-trail versatility. Volkl's new Titanal Frame Construction uses Titanal reinforcements along the perimeter of the ski in front of and behind the binding platform that add power and stability without adding any extra weight to the ski. Carbon Tips lower the swingweight and improve maneuverability as well as improving floatation in the deep snow and reducing tip rattle when you start picking up some speed. Moderate Taper in the tip and tail prevent the ski from feeling grabby when you are ripping through powder, crud or bumps. Full length vertical sidewalls improve the edge hold on those not so soft days. Volkl's Multi-Layer Woodcore is packed with energy and stability, even when you are skiing your fastest. If you are looking for a well-rounded ski that loves any condition, the word is out on the new Volkl Secret. Shhhh.
