Allee Posted November 23, 2005 Report Share Posted November 23, 2005 Spent last night in the workshop at U of C, where they let no-ideas like me loose with all the ski and snowboard tuning equipment and teach you how to tune your own gear. The instructor recommended a very interesting edge setup for my board - basically the same setup that they use to tune shaped skis. The base bevel is 1/2 deg through the flex zones at tip and tail, and 0 through the bindings. The side bevel is 1/2 deg through the tip and tail and 2 through the bindings. I'm thinking this is a fairly radical departure from the safe and boring 1 and 1 that I've been using. Anyone have any comments on how this might ride? Or use anything similar? I also found out that the Outdoor Centre at U of C has a batch of brand new Prior split boards that they're renting over this season for $30 per day including skins. If any of you are up this way and looking to do some backcountry, renting one of these rather than carting your own gear might be a nice option.
