Ski & Snowboard Hot Waxing

Wax is apllied on prep – clean and open base. There’s used a glide wax based on our choice – universal for all temperatures, mostly in pink, white or orange color; yellow, red or violet for warmer or mildly cold weather, blue or green for the coldest or freezing conditions. Classic wax, mostly applied is the hydrocarbon wax based on paraffin.… Read more →

Edge Tuning

To remove nicks from ski or snowboard edges there are used extra coarse diamond files, the black – 220 grit, for less serious damage, and the grey – 120 grit, intended for deeper nicks. After edge beveling burrs need to be removed from edges. Coarser diamond files will execute it well, the blue – 325 grit, followed by the fine,… Read more →

Side Edge Bevel

Precise, extra hard and efficient Swiss “Ice-Cut” files are used for side beveling as well in this case in combination with an alu race bevel guide. Using plastic inserts we can bevel angles 0-6 degrees (90-84°), in ½ degree increments. The rule of thumb, the more sharp angle the less effort a skier a snowboarder needs to put in carving. Sharper bevel… Read more →

Base Edge Bevel

Base edge angle is beveled by titanium, X-chrome, so called Ice Cut files made in Switzerland a an aluminuim bevel guide, which is able to angle edge from 0 to 2°, in ¼ or ½ degree increments. On average, increasing base bevel helps to avoid an unexpected catch and brings about smoother and faster ride. A bevel is chosen based… Read more →

Final Base Structure

As mentioned above, applied base structure makes skis or a snowboard handling easier. Besides, right structure adds up to skier’s or snowboarder’s style or technique. To achieve it we apply variety of structures, which differ not just by their coarseness measure but also by their pattern. For example straight, fast downhill skiing is in accordance with linear structures, a slalom… Read more →

Base Structuring

True hard alu-oxide grinding stones used for base flattening while being applied leave behind a basic, permanent structure, either fine or medium coarse, which is suitable for the snow condition at the turn of fall and winter as well as for mid-winter (new snow, low temperatures), or a coarse structure, fitting the snow conditions which rule at the turn of… Read more →

Base Flattening

Placing a true bar (flatness tester) across ski or snowboard base and edges we can check its flatness. As long as edges are higher than a base, the base is so called concave, your ski (snowboard) tends to catch unxpectedly and the gear is hard to handle. On the contrary, the base which is higher than edges, so called convex base… Read more →
