Never lose your edge with the RaceWax Dual Edge Kit - Everything you need to professionally sharpen ski and snowboard edges.
Side and base edge bevel multi tool (does both sides) that includes a metal file as well as a RaceWax diamond stone, a Swix deburring gummi stone, brass brush to clean your files, and ski brake retainers.
- Dial a precise side angle from 0 degree to 5 degrees and 0.5 to 1.0 degree on the base. Nine angles total.
- High quality Swiss-made ICECUT included (80 mm).
- NOTE: 80 mm is the maximum length file or stone that will fit into this tool. 70- or 80-mm stones are recommended.
- One Swix gray Gumi or Gummi Stone for prepping an edge, deburring as the final step in edge sharpening, or detuning.
- RaceWax Diamond Stone 70 mm x 25mm: BLUE (Coarse)= for routine edge maintenance and sharpening (360 grit)
- It is recommended that you set the edge bevels with the file and then replace the file with 70- or 80-mm diamond stones to maintain the sharpness; if you always use the metal file, you will wear away the edge. The blue 70-mm RaceWax stone or the yellow 80-mm Swix stone are good starters, a black RaceWax or red Swix are the next most used; add the whole set of grits if you are a racer.
- 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.
- File cleaning brush for removing metal filings from grooves. Measures 3.25 x 0.6 x 0.4 inches.
- Ski brake retainers: two large (color may vary) ski shop quality bands.
- Detailed instruction card with links to video help.
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.
