Hi does anyone know the factory bevels for the XRC 1200 WC sandwich and the supershape speed,
|Which edge angles does Head use in its production?
The most proven angular measurement is a production standard: On the base side the edges are beveled by 1° to 1.5°, laterally they are relief-ground at approximately 1°.
|Should racers surface-grind the edge flush with the base or bevel it?
We recommend beveling the edge as the ski would otherwise become extremely aggressive and would be difficult to control in critical situations. Even the Head Worldcup Team skis have edges beveled up to 1°.
Should racers side bevel the edge more than Head’s standard 1°?
In order to make the grip on ice even better, the edge is side beveled up to a max. of 3°. This should, however, only be done by absolute top skiers as the ski will become clearly more aggressive and tend to edge over very
