TreyMiddletonWhat’s up fellas, I got a new pair of skis that are reasonably longer then my last pair and I’m having a hard time on lower angle terrain. They are the same model as my last pair just longer but whenever my skis are flat on the snow, one of them seems to just start turning and get locked in. It’s not a problem on anything steeper but it can get sketchy when just cruising... does anyone have a way to fix this (either the way I’m skiing or tune related)? It might just take some getting used to but it’s no bueno on cat tracks
TreyMiddletonThanks guys, I checked the edges and they weren’t all that sharp to begin with. I talked to a friend and he said skis often shrink in the factory so the bevel won’t always be correct. I’m in the process of putting a 1 degree base bevel on the ski (what they were set to from factory) it’s definitely taking some material off. Hope this helps, thanks guys.
MinggI might be wrong so take this with a grain of salt - if you are like the majority of park skiers, you were probably (previously) on a pair of dull skis. And now you are a brand new, poppy, sharp pair. Basically, you have to really ski the ski. Don't let the ski, ski you.
TreyMiddletonUpdate: I set the base bevel back to factory spec and they are money. Still great on everything and they don’t want to kill me on cat tracks
Dustin.Park skiers are always amazed to feel a real edge again. I love it.
TreyMiddletonExcept I rarely ski park and my last pair of skis had significantly sharper edges...
