Absolute tosh mate, not one of them are, where do you get your info? Where are all those litigation laws you guys are so famous for.
They are designed by the same team who bought you The Volkl Explosive, Gotama, Mantra, Karma, etc. Then made in Italy, at Nordica or in Slovinia at Elan.
Actually, not much, if any, of that is true.
As clarified by another poster, lostboy I think, most '07 Nordicas were made by Fischer. Legend has it that the race stock skis are made in Italy. It's really a moot point, though, because Nordica ski production will begin moving to the Blizzard factory in Mittersill, AUT. The Tecnica Group owns both Nordica and Blizzard.
You are also grossly exaggerating any link between the Volkl and Nordica development people. It is true that Nordica ski production has bounced around a bit since they killed the Kästle brand, and common ties to Tecnica facilitated some Nordica sample production in the Volkl factory for a brief time a few years ago. However, to say that the 07 Nordicas were designed by the same guys that developed the Explosiv, Gotama, Mantra, etc is just not true. For starters, the Explosiv was originally designed in 1993 - long before any of the development people at either company arrived at their current positions.
