Tune Specs for Burton SuperModel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Can anyone advise where I can find the correct tuning specs for a Burton Supermodel snowboard? I tune my skis and want to begin tuning my son's board, but I could not find tuning specs on Burton's website. Or are most boards tuned to approx the same spec for general riding similar to most skis tuned 1 base and 2 side unless one is custom tuning for racing or the park?

 

Thanks,

Bluebear

1 and a 1 is cool for all around cruising

Thanks kmbarry. I heard once that 1/2 and 1 was kind of a std for all around crusing just like 1 and 2 is kind of std for all around skis, but 1/2 for the base seemed like it could be catchy. I'll try 1/1.

 

Also, surprised only one reply.

 

Thanks,

Bluebear

From Toko's Snowboard Tech Manual found here:

EDGE TUNING
The base edge on a snowboard should have a bevel of a half to one degree. A little
base bevel makes the board easy to ride and transitioning from toe edge to heel edge
without being “grabby”. Base bevel of more than one degree makes the board feel
“slippery” and turns have to be skidded because the edge is not close enough to the snow
to hook up.
Side edge bevel on a board will depend on the conditions and the rider’s ability. One
degree of side bevel is enough for softer conditions and forgiving to beginning to
intermediate riders. Two degree side edge grips better on harder snow, this lets a
stronger rider lay over in a harder turn. For racing or carving on hard icy slopes a side
edge bevel of three degrees will hold, but will take some muscle to control.

Tough race today just wasn't able to figure out the course.
 
The snow here is artificial, old and dirty. Ran HF blue on the edge of the base and HF grey over the rest. Most important for me are edges, I run a .5 degree base bevel and 2 on the side. On very aggressive and grippy snow I like to use fiber-tex to smooth and detune the edge this can be done on the slope its quick and you can adjust the detune and sharpness of the edge with just a few passes.
