Rio, Nordica is owned by Tecnica, not Voelkl.
And Voelkl in now owned by K2.
Still, since the Superspeed were developed during the past year, it may well be that you are right about the brotherhod between te Superspeed and the SUV...
I wonder when K2 will shut down the European Voelkl plant and move production to China. I'm still drooling after Voelkls, but on that day I'll stop.
