All skis and snowboards will perform to their optimum performance levels whilst new. The base or running surface (polyethylene) allows you to glide and generate speed, whilst the edges (steel) allow you to grip and turn readily. During the manufacturing process the bases are ground flat and smooth and then hot waxed. The edges are machined to specific angles and polished.
Once we start to use the equipment it will slowly start to deteriorate. The bases will lose the wax and start to become scratched. This increases friction and slows you down. The edges will lose their sharpness and start to become rounded. This will make gripping and turning more difficult.
With a small amount of knowledge and the right tools you can service your own equipment to a satisfactory standard but there will become a time when only a professional workshop can perform the necessary operations to bring your equipment back to new.
At Anything Technical we have one of the most sophisticated workshops in the UK. Using our state of the art machinery we can service skis and snowboards to the highest possible standards.
