Advanced Edge Tuning Question
Im gonna be riding my 2010 lib skate banana 156 for everything...and i mean EVERYTHING. Park, Pow, Groomers and (exclusive to this season and maybe future seasons) some racing. Yet theres a little problem hidden in this all mountain riding that i need to combat.
I detune my edge for my park needs. But for racing, i'm going to need to keep my blades in tact.
Would a 3 degree base bevel, and a 2 degree sidewall bevel provide the best of both worlds?
The 3 degree base bevel will strong enough to allow my edge to rise a little bit. It shouldnt make my edge catch on rails or even catch at all because it's at quite a harsh angle. And steel doesn't slide well against snow anyways, so when flat basing while racing would be even faster. Correct?
The 2 degree would just be that extra sharpness to have my edge at an overall 91 degree's. Only considering the racing.
On top of these extreeme angles, i have magnetraction. Which In my opinion rapes anyways.
For anybody who is an expert with this stuff, criticize me on this idea. For I feel that it is a good idea, but I feel as though I might get a little ahead of myself if i make this decision.
