There has been much discussion about the 3 degree bevel angle of Atomic skis. Atomic also has an almost mystical reputation for edge hold. I'm wondering if there is something specific in the design of Atomic skis that makes this 3 degree angle appropriate to them alone or would other skis also benefit from the 1/3 base/bevel geometry. I'm thinking specifically about retuning my Elan S12 Fusions to this geometry and I'm wondering if there are good reasons I should not. Have any Bears used the 1/3 on non-Atomic skis? What do you think?
