SKI & BOARD DIAGNOSIS

With a well-prepared board or skis, you can make better turns, the edges grip more easily and the level of safety is increased. 

  • Diagnosis: Winter sports equipment with damage and scratches on the base does not glide efficiently. Base damage affects the turning capabilities and the directional stability. Bases which have been ground too roughly or unevenly are slow.  An uneven base causes an irregular distribution of pressure and therefore produces poor gliding and turning characteristics.
  • Solution: A correctly prepared ski is repaired with P-Tex wire. The finish has to be fiber-free, planar and have a fine structure. The ski should be regularly waxed so that the base is protected against oxidation caused by UV rays. Evenness from edge to edge means perfect gliding and turning.
  • Diagnosis: A concave or hollow ski from edge to edge produces an uncontrollable edge grip and glides unevenly. A convex or humped ski base requires an extreme angle for an effective edge grip and is very unstable at higher speeds.
  • Solution: Planar ski bases allow controlled turning. An important requirement for a good ski is a minimally hanging edge (angle: about 0.5°) or, even better, the MONTANA Radial Tuning (angle: 0.5° under the bindings and approx. 0.7° at tip and tail). This makes turning easy while still allowing fast edge control.
  • Diagnosis: Different edge angles, rust, bumps and wear prevent controlled edge usage.
  • Solution: The geometry of the edges has to be tuned in accordance with the snow conditions and the skier’s technique. Edge usage is easier with an edge angle of less than 90°. This preparation is highly recommended for racing purposes, aggressive skiing, carving skis, and hard pistes.
