I would like to use my Proto ct as my only board as opposed to having one for park and one for all mountain. What can I bevel my base and side edges to for riding boxes but still be able to carve and ride the ice?

I recently emailed Never Summer about their factory edge bevels because I am starting to do my own edge tuning. I received a fast response and they confirmed there is NO bevel when it comes from the factory. 0 degree base/ 0 degree edge on ALL their boards.

Yup. Zero zero and sharp as fuck.

I took it to 1/91 and detuned the contact point ever so slightly on an Evo. Smoother transitions, smoother flat basing. No edge hold loss that I could tell.

I did the same (1/1 base/side bevel) to my proto Ct

EDGE BEVEL RECOMMENDATIONS Proto CT

I have been riding recreationally for around the past 20 years. I consider myself a solid intermediate rider that likes to cruise the entire mountain but will spend at least a day a weak in the park hitting jumps, and boxes. Board sliding rails are not in my repertoire of tricks. Over the years I have massacred the edges on my boards myself and have had local shops do things that have or have not helped. I would greatly appreciate EDGE BEVEL RECOMMENDATIONS for my riding style on the Never Summer Proto CT. Thanks!

ONE DEGREE BASE BEVEL... ONE DEGREE SIDE BEVEL ... (sometime they call it 89 degrees, but the shoptech will know what you mean by 1/1). 1/1 is the default setting 99.99% of shop use... so if you have ever had your board tuned, it is already 1/1.

I will definitely cosign on lonerider and snowolf's recommendations of 1/1. This is what I use on my Proto for all mountain everything here in VT. Mellow enough to butter, hit boxes/rails etc, but still grippy enough for our ice.

I'm still riding 0/0 on my proto, but I dont hit boxes, just all-mountain and kickers. I doubt I'll change it, I know Vince has said to leave it if it works. Maybe 0/0 doesn't work on boxes, dunno.
