up on the bis.
so everyone knows, Tecnica owns nordica, the factory, the company, everything. Tecnica divorced Volkl because they did not like the direction the company was going. Tecnica made Volkl what it is today, the money the design, etc. Tecnica has gone out and bought blizard, took all the great desighners from volkl and dropped a ton of change into the factory. So, give them a shot before you try a ski that is made in the same factory or made by a ski marketing firm. check em' out, vertical sidewalls, wood core, one to two sheets titanal, etc. a great traditional ski design. enough on the marketing, get whatever you like to ski on, but after racing for nordica, skiing CB for years on volkls and not I have found the ski for me!
