Edge Separated a bit from the base, does it need repair?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all, here are some pictures of my Icelantic Gypsies. You can see where there is a tiny gap between the edge and the base. I was wondering if this is something that should be fixed and if so, can it be done easily. I don't know if i'll get the chance to use them this weekend but I'd like to have them available. This issue is only on this part of this one ski. (BTW, it is standing tip-down.) Thanks in advance! edit: I didn't get a good shot of where it joins back up (bottom of the picture), but the 'crack' does not extend more than .5cm below the frame of the pic.

Icelantic is an awesome group of folks and they are awesome with support issues. I'd send these pics to them and ask them what they think. Since it doesn't look like damage from an edge strike or any other such abuse, they may see it as a QC issue that they want to investigate further.

Thanks for the tip, I did just send them an email with the same photos.

 

I really have no idea how long this has been that way, I inspect the bases but I could have missed that.

Let us know what they say. I had a pair of K2's that came new with a tiny bit of separation. I filled the gap on the theory that over time snow getting forced up into the gap might separate the edge further but I don't know if it was necessary. It's certainly easy enough to fix.
