HEAD (by the way, the pioneer of laminated skis) was of course a long-time American company, but has since been acquired by a holdings firm in the Netherlands. Volkl, on the other hand, is based in Germany, but owned by K2's parent company.
OK, so which (if either) is considered the American ski? (I'm assuming HEAD skis are still designed and manufactured in the USA?)
If not, is K2 the only truly-american ski brand left??? (I'm leaving out smaller companies like Line, Icelantic, BRO, ON3NP, etc)
