Despite its name (new feminine hygiene product?), the Secret proved to be a ninja warrior whose only sign of weakness was that it abhors weakness. (No. 2 in Stability at Speed, tied for No. 2 in Hard-Snow Integrity and last among winners in Playful- ness.) The Secret employs a Titanal frame construction—a metal cutout—that reinforces only the edges to add grip but save weight. Carbon in the tip lightens it up, but this ski takes everything—especially speed—seriously. 

Strength: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity 

Weakness: Playfulness
