Völkl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They're owned by the same parent company that owns K2, Coleman, Rawlings, and a bunch of other brands. So they're not just some one off company.

The boards are made in Germany, while I believe most of Burtons stuff is made in China. I'm thrilled with my Burton but it was made in Vermont, USA.

I think the Volkl is at least as trustworthy as Burton as a brand, but I've never owned one. There are three posts about Volkls in that thread and everyone loves them... there's another thread about them...
