Volkl Secret 102 Skis 2024

The Secret with 102 mm center width has always been the freeride ski for the extreme. In the new season, the Secret 102 is built with Tailored Carbon Tips and Tailored Titanal Frame. This makes it even more agile and the turn initiation works much smoother despite the large ski width. Due to the new construction, the desired handling characteristics can be influenced with accurate precision, the ski simply works much more precisely. The Tip & Tail Rocker construction increases the turning ability and provides lift in powder. But even if the deep snow isn't as deep as desired, if the terrain is rough or the slope leading off-piste is rather hard, the 3D Radius Sidecut in combination with the Titanal construction ensures great reliability and sportiness for all these conditions. For experienced all-mountain freeride women who really challenge their ski in the backcountry, the new Secret with 102 mm is the very first choice.
- 3D RADIUS SIDECUT: Three radii in one ski for maximum TURNING & SPEED VERSATILITY IN ALL MOUNTAIN SKIING LONG TIP & TAIL RADIUS Usage of long radii at tip and tail for big turns and high speed // easy steering and maneuverability // disruption resistant at the tip // no radius limitation and ease of turn exit TIGHT CENTER RADIUS Usage of shorter radius in the center for short turns and lower speed // extremely easy to initiate short turns // strikingly agile // effortless and smooth in short turns
BASE P-TEX 2100: A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability
FULL SIDEWALL: Direct and strong powertransmission with full length sidewalls.
MULTILAYER WOODCORE 1: The side wall is laminated to extremely stable layers of wood on the sides of the sandwich core. In combination with a more flexible, lighter wood built into the center of the sandwich core construction provides numerous advantages: The hardwood part immediately adjacent to the sidewall effects a higher power transmission, improves the edge grip and supports the edge against external forces. The low weight of the softwood part in the middle of the ski brings more agility and maneuverability and reduces overall ski weight. The combination of both wood types running through the entire ski length contributes to an optimal distribution of the ski stiffness increasing the steering precision. It is the first and only sidewall/core technology intended for aggressive on-piste and racing use and capable of delivering the victory and defeat, even if it is measured in hundredths of seconds.
TAILORED CARBON TIPS: In this innovative manufacturing process the new Tailored Carbon Tips are produced by embroidering the individual carbon fibers onto a carrier material. This allows them to be positioned exactly along the stress lines, opening up completely new possibilities, for performance at the front of the ski, which has a decisive influence on the handling of the ski. The stiffness, torsion and thus the skiing characteristics can be specifically adjusted via the fiber thickness and millimeter-precise alignment. In this way, the fibers guide the dynamics to the areas of the ski where they are needed. The visibly integrated Tailored Carbon Tips are light, allow an agile shovel reaction with less effort and quickly build up energy. The Tailored Carbon Tips thus reach a new level of precision, direct tip response and active skiing pleasure.
TAILORED TITANAL FRAME: Volkl's new key echnology is called Tailored Titanal Frame. In contrast to the previous design, the width of the titanal frame is now adapted exactly to each individual ski length. This results in Tailored Titanal Frames, which are positioned above the sidewall alog the tip and tail area of the ski to provide the desired damping and torsional stiffness. The size of the frames is tailored to the skier's height, skiing ability and power. This means that longer ski models have a higher titanal content for more stiffness, more direct power transmission and stronger dampening. The shorter the length, the lower the titanal content, which makes the ski more agile, so that smaller, lighter and less powerful skiers can use the full potential performance of the ski. In addition to the Tailored Titanal Frames, a second, thinner titanal layer is located in the binding area, which gives the ski the necessary strength, but also agility. The result: the Tailored Titanal Frame technology provides an incomparable combination of agility and high speed control.
TIP & TAIL ROCKER: Character: Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle
TITANAL FRAME: More damping and stability over the full length of the ski Power on the Edge Strength for the mounting platform Damping over the full length Light & strong carbon tips
WOODCORE: Special PU construction with a wooden core in the ski body.
