Do Pros Detune Comp Skis?
Was having this debate with some friends, but do pros detune their comp skis underfoot for slopestyle? I said they definitely do, but the argument was made that the rails are so slick on slope courses that they may not need to detune. Add in that slope course jump sections can get firm and icy, then maybe they don't detune? Idk
We need to know.
my guess is that some of them choose to detune their tips but v sharp everywhere else
Sharp edges slide like shit on the best rails. Leaving them sharp seems like a good way to have a random edge catch that sends you head first into a closeout. If you can't ski an icy park on dull skis you probably shouldn't call yourself a pro and definitely wouldn't qualify to be in one of those comps.
