Mtx

So I rode my skate banana for the first time this Saturday. It was awesome and I really like it. It held up great all over the ice, but theres only one thing. IT seems like the magnetraction is working too well. When I would lock and edge(more so on heelside) it was extremely hard to disengage it. I don't know how to explain, but it was almost as if the magne would drag me to the ground(and it really did drag me to the ground twice). So my question is, is this because my edges are too sharp? Should I detune? Or is this something i will get used to.

Is it a brand new board? Any board with brand new edges will be "grabby." Most people will get it detuned a bit, although I've never bothered. Sounds like a good idea, though. If you don't know what you're doing, which is sounds like, get a shop to do it professionally.

Yea, thats true.....I heard you need a special edge tool for the magne edges anyway. I might just take it to my local shop to have it done. How much does it usually cost?

Thumbs up

Not to much about $15-$30 dollars, depending on how much you get done, and how pikie you are.


But that is what I suggest to do.

You don't need a side edge file tool to detune edges.
