tuning early rise skiis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a new pair of early rise skis(Rossi Experience 83) for all mountain skiing.

I normally tune to 3 degree edge and 1 degree base. I then add another .5 degree base bevel for about 100 mm at tip and tail and keep a full length sharp edge. This makes for a well mannered high performing ski.

It seems to me that the early rise may give the same effect with no need to increase the base bevel.

I am interested to find other peoples experiences with the tune of early rise skis, as once the bevel is done you waste an awfull lot of ski undoing it..

you have answered your own question. since the progression works better if you try less base bevel first, i would ski the ski with 1 base/3 side and judge the effect of the early rise for yourself


in our shop we would set the rossi experience base bevel at 1 the side at 2 and leave the ski sharp to the contact points. most of the test skis that we skied last spring were set up with a 1/2 and they skied brilliantly.

Thanks Jim

I thought I probably had, but just wanted reassurance that my logic was correct. 

We have just had piles of new snow, so looking forward to some great spring skiing.
