i just got the capita stairmaster i was wondering if anyone knows if it has any bevel on the base edge?
if not should i put like a 2-2.5degree bevel on it? i wanna hit a lotta jibs but still be able to handle the rest of the mountain pretty well too
also wouldnt that mean i gotta have like an 88 degree side edge? how do i do that?

I believe it comes with a 2.5 degree base bevel.
The default side bevel should be good enough. If you want more bite, give it an 88 degree edge. Dakine has an edging file tool that comes with both 88 and 90 degree sides.

Not sure what bevel the stairmaster comes with, but I usually put a 3 degree base bevel and a 2 degree side. I guess that means 88 degrees but the shop knows what I mean. I dont bevel my own boards because it takes forever to file that much off and I can never tell if it's even, but I would recommend between 2-3 if you ride a lot of rails. I try to keep as much sharp edge as possible but I do detune between the bindings.
