Pros Incredibly versatile, easy to ski, fun and quick, only 92mm makes it nimbleGreat float in powder, playful, decent stabilityUnparalleled stability at speed, crud-buster, lends you strengthA blast to ski, easy to turn, relatively stable, fantastic in powderVersatile, stiffer, reliable
Cons Not the perfect powder partnerMore expensive, slightly lumbering in bumpsVery pricey, prefers faster straighter linesNot perfect carvers, some deflection in crudNot particularly exciting
Bottom Line The cat's out of the bag on the new Secret from Volkl - everything about it is on the verge of perfection!An incredibly versatile ski which shines in powderIf you're looking to blast all over the mountain at top speed with full support under your feet, the extra money is worth itAn absolute ripper ski, but you don't have to yet be a ripping chick to fully enjoy themThis stable ski will be reliable in all environments; it is only lacking a little spring to its step
