why snowboard and ski service?

2. Easier turning and sliding

service in the specialist store
How often you will have a tuning in a specialist store done, depends on the snow conditions, the terrain and the performance level.
Magor base- and edge damaging should be corrected as soon as possible.
WINTERSTEIGER suggests a tuning
1. Before your first ride in winter.
2. After about 4 days on piste.
3. And after the season.
stump, rounded down edges
Stump, rounded down edges or damaging with grooves or cuts.
If the edges are used up, skis/ snowboards tend to slide off when turning. Stump edges don't neither provide hold nor security – especially not on hard or icy pistes. Despite regularly private care, the edges need
to be professionally serviced in a specialist store.
damage of the surface
Whenever you check your equipment also check if there is any damage on the surface. Check if there are any scratches or deep groove.
Even small scratches can affect the sliding properties when not repaired.
Deep grooves which are core deep or run along the steel edges have to be repaired in a specialist shop.
The wax will be worn off because of friction when skiing/snowboarding. This makes the base dry, thready and gray. You can maintain the base and improve the sliding quality with application of a new wax layer. At the same time the wax provides protection of oxidation.
The wax will especially be worn off on dry snow that is why you should have your skis/ snowboard waxed after 2 to 4 days on piste.
