The base bevel determines how quickly your skis will "hook up" and turn. With a shallower bevel like the .5 degree your skis will tend to be more grabby and as you tilt your ski up on edge it will initiate the turn immediately. Compared to a deeper Bevel like the 2 degree which will take longer to "hook up", and require the ski to be tilted further onto the edge to initiate the turn.
