Pocket BEAST Ski Edge Tool


 

The Pocket BEAST is a precision, fixed angle, ski edge sharpening tool with a stainless steel glide plate for clean, easy gliding over the base structure. Includes the BEAST clamping mechanism that's vastly superior to simple angle bar and spring clamp styles. Compact enough to fit in your pocket for a quick ski tune on the hill. The Pocket BEAST is one of the most versatile side edger tools available and will accept practically any ski tuning file or stone from the small 70mm size up to an 8" file. (Files and stones not included.)

The differences listed are variable depending on the snow hardness, strength and skill of athlete and speed. A high level SL or GS skier is usually on ice and wants the base edge to be in immediate contact and the side edge to penetrate for better grip. A less experienced athlete will find these extreme bevels may hook up too quick and the edge penetrate too far and the combination can cause erratic performance and possible knee injury.
