Ski tuning - edge question

Postby mtngoat » Wed Feb 04, 2009 11:33 am

So, a quick question for all you self tuners or shop tuners. My Atomics have a 1* base edge and a 3*side edge. Does that amount to an edge angle of 87* or 93*. So is the edge sharper than 90 degrees or more open?

84*, I think. I've only tuned a couple times any my side edge in 90* from base. Your 1* bevel on the bottom edge adds a degree, and I doubt you are subtracting from your side edge because you would be scrapping alot off the side of your skis also...
