Description

Complete Edge Care Kit - Everything you need to professionally sharpen ski and snowboard edges.

Side and base edge bevel multi tool (does all angles) and includes a metal file with three DMT diamond stones and a deburring gummi stone.

  • This one tool is all you need to sharpen and bevel your edges. Dial a precise angle from 0 degree to 5 degrees in 0.5 degree increments. Does every angle imaginable!
  • Metal file included!
  • One Gumi or Gummi Stone, may be red or gray, for prepping an edge, deburring as the final step in edge sharpening, or detuning.
  • Three diamond stones included: Use the black for cutting, the blue to maintain the sharpness and the red to fine sharpen and polish.
  • Bonus Benefit for this tool: If you don't know what base and side angles your ski/board are set to, this tool can help you find them. Before you start mark the metal edge with a sharpie, start the tool at the lowest angle and see if it removes the marking on your edge. Raise the angle step-wise and repeat until it removes the mark. That is your angle! Record the base/side angles for future reference.
  • There are two ways to determine the cutting direction for the metal file in the tool: (a) you can run the back of your fingernail across the file. Your fingernail will run smoothly one way and the other way (the cutting direction) will produce small shavings from your fingernail on the file; or, (b) look closely at the file with a magnifying glass. You will see that the file teeth point in only one direction. You pull the file in the direction that will cause the most friction against the ski edge (the cutting direction).

The amount of base edge bevel will affect the ability of the ski/board to pivot on the snow. The more base edge bevel, the easier it will be to pivot or slide from side to side. Once you set the base edge angle, you can't go back to the original because of the base material. If the skis hook up on turns, increase the bevel by a quarter or half degree.

Side edge beveling will give the skis more grip on the snow surface. Higher angles should be reserved for experienced racers; if the angle is too high the ski can "rail out" on a less experienced racer. Typical angles are 1.0 to 3.0 degrees. Less angle equals less grip. Slalom angles can be 3.0 to 5.0 degrees; downhill up to 3.0 degrees. A racer should start at 3 degrees. Keep in mind:

  • Higher angles are quicker to dull.
  • An aggressive edge (high angle), may be more difficult for lighter racers (young kids or women) may make it more difficult to recover from being up on the edge.

    Racewax Complete Edge Care Kit

    Posted by Larry on Feb 27th 2017

    I'm a recreational skier who previously got my edges done once a year at the start of the season. After a day of sliding on the ice I bought this kit. What a difference! Next time out I had control in the turns even on the crusty snow. I like the fact that this sharpener is adjustable as I have various brands of skis and a snowboard that I will use it on. May not be as accurate as fixed angle tools, but it worked plenty well for me. Tool change and angle adjustment are easy to do. I used a worktable I have with a a plastic vice to hold my skis, and that worked OK, but I can see that a pair of ski vices would make life easier.

    This a very nice kit I got excellent results the first time I used it . My equipment will be in much better condition throughout the season as a result of me being able to maintain my own edges. I received my order on time and properly packed.
