i personally never detune my boards but thats just me, i would however detune the tip and tail up to the contact points since that part of the board isnt used in turning. i also have a bevel on some of my boards which has the same effect as detuning for the most part only you can still engage the edge by just tilting a little more then you usually would. if you like riding the mtn every now and then or like hitting jumps i would recommend a 1-2 degree bevel on the base and side edges over detuning them.

if you bevel it 2 degrees, is it easy to change back to 0 if you dont like it?

Treat a bevel as permanent.

^yea i agree

if anything you could try out a smaller bevel and see how it feels. to be honest 2 deg. really isnt a huge difference though. it just raises the edge just enough to make it a little more forgiving. plus you can still lay down some carves if you want.

It's a bataleon. It is basically already beveled. I usually detune the tip and tail and just take a little angle off the contact points

no real need on a bataleon, if your picky do the tip and tail lightly

its not possible to get the 2 degrees that you cut off the board.
