The Works!

For those special skis / snowboards that deserve to be in tip-top condition! 

 

In this service, additional time and steps are allocated to go above and beyond a standard edge & wax to produce the best results possible.

 

Extra time and steps are allocated to cleaning and prepping the bases, base edge angles / bevels are tuned in addition to a standard side edge tune and a temperature-specific (not universal) hot wax is used. Any additional tuning requests / preferences are also carried out.

This service could be great for:

  • Those that want the highest performance from their gear

  • Prepping race skis / boards  

  • Bringing old favourites back to their former glory  

  • Gear that has been in storage for years

  • Anyone with specific tuning needs / requests

The Process

Phase 1 - Cleaning

 

1.1 -  Any remaining old wax is scraped off with a perspex                      scraper.

1.2 - The bases are brushed with a stiff bronze brush to remove           any remaining wax and dirt from the structure of the base. 

1.3 - The bases are wiped down with a base cleaner and cloth               to finish off the cleaning process, leaving the bases ready             for their fresh hot wax to be applied.

Phase 2 - Tuning The Edges

 

2.1 - A diamond file is run across the base and side edges to                remove any burs, lumps or bumps.  

2.2 - Any rust is removed with a coarse pocket stone and                       gummy stone. 

2.3 - The base bevel / angle is tuned to factory specification or              any angle requested. 

2.4 - The side edge angles are tuned to factory specification or             any angle requested. 

2.5 - Any special tuning requests e.g. tip / tail detuning is                       carried out. 

Phase 3 - Hot Wax

 

3.1 - A generous amount of temperature-specific wax is applied           to the base at the appropriate temperature. 

3.2 - The wax is left to set for at least an hour to ensure                         maximum absorption. 

3.3 - Excess wax is removed with a perspex scraper. 

3.4 - The bases are polished by a nylon brush.
