Edge control

As the shredding season approaches and you eagerly anticipate hitting the slopes, it's crucial to ensure that your snowboard or skis are tuned for high performance. That's where edge tuning tools come in handy. These tools are designed to maintain and enhance the edges of your snowboard or skis, providing better grip, stability, and control as you glide through the snow.

There are many types of edge tuning tools that you can use to take care of your skis or snowboard, but the main two are edge files and diamond stones:

Edge files

These convenient hand tools come with a hardened metal file attached, allowing you to remove imperfections from the edges. The files are available in different coarseness options, letting you adjust the edge sharpness according to your preference and riding conditions.

Diamond stones

To achieve a smooth surface on your edges after filing, diamond stones are the go-to option. These coarse tools, coated with diamonds, effectively polish the edges, reducing friction and enhancing the gliding experience.

By practicing proper maintenance with the help of edge tuning tools, you can better the performance and longevity of your snowboard or skis. Not only will this result in better maneuverability and control on the slopes, but it will also allow you to enjoy your time on the mountain for longer periods.
