 After updating the Mantra, Kendo and Kenja skis with its Titanal frame and carbon tips, Völkl has done the same to the Secret 102. The reaction from testers mirrors that for the other models: the same top-end performance but in a more forgiving and approachable package. “This is a winner,” said Deanna Papineau. The sandwich construction has a poplar and beech wood core with a strip of Titanal that focuses mostly on the edges and fades out near the tip and tail. At the tips, strands of carbon fibre radiate out to maintain torsional rigidity, while keeping swing weight low. A multi-radius sidecut adds variable turning performance. Advanced and expert testers of all sizes found they could easily go from short-radius to long, high-speed turns. What was most noticeable was the ski’s poppy, fun feel, which will appeal to energetic skiers who like a lively ride. “It’ll put a hop in your step,” said Alexis Borden-Sayah, “or should I say turn.”
