Default Edge bevel quick question

Hi guys, I've a ns evo-r and I've ridden a few times without any beveling.

I'm planning to bevel the base and side edge from a shop. The question is will -2/-2 be okay for all mountain riding other than park and jib?

thanks!

Yeah. Its still a sharp 90, and lifted a bit because of the base bevel. It will act like a 90 but not as catchy due to the base bevel

i wouldnt suggest beveling the base to 2 degress off. try maybe 1 at first and see how it works out.

once u bevel it how u want to, then your board wont be as stable on higher all mtn speeds. and its totally gonna suck on hard pack. Also keep in mind that once u bevel the base 2 degress and then u decide to have it back to normal, the ski shop is going to have to grind down your entire base...do u really want to do that on ur NS?

good call, I might just try 1/1 bevel first and see if I like it. I can always do 2/2 afterward! thank guys.

okay so I contacted a few local shops and some of them don't even know what edge beveling is and keep saying all you need is a sharpening and a hot wax. There is one guy that he can "hand tune" it for me after I get my board sharpen and waxed from him.....

I read snowwolf's tuning guide that there is a machine that does base edge beveling automatically, are these machines really rare to come by?

Generally it is ski shops that have the fancy machines. Small "core" snowboard shops generally won't because they are too expensive.

Wrong. Most race boards have a 2 or a 3 degree bevel (at least they used to when I was racing many moons ago). It can actually help when carving at high speeds.

just do a little research and you will see how easy and inexpensive it is to do yourself. go to youtube and look for "snowboard tuning".

Personal favorite is 1* 88*. Gives an 89* corner. Awesome all over the mountain except for rails and boxes. Might go to 2* 88* or 87* as a mess around after I get my new board.
