Volkl katana's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know what the factor tune is on the Katana's? Is it 1 and 1, 1 and 2?

Most new Volkls have been measuring about 1.5 and 1.5.

Please advise me. I've been tuning race skis for a few years and I've never seen a Volkl with a 1.5 base angle. Since most skis I see are geared toward racing, the 1.5 side angle doesn't seem to work with it. I tune 0.5 - 0.75 race base with customer determined side angles 1-2deg.
Am I wrong?

From the Volkl web site (http://www.volkl.com/ski/faq.php)

"The factory specs of all adult models are the same. 2 degree bevel the side edge and a 1 degree bevel on the base edge."

That's what they have been measuring (with a bevel gauge) right out of the plastic. Honestly, the bevels do tend to vary slightly throughout the skis entire length. Same with Stokli and K2.
It seems that most non race stock skis are coming out of the wrapper with a forgiving factory tune.
