Customer Accolades:

"You folks have it down. My new Side of BEAST is the best side edge tool I have ever used bar none. Way to go!"

D.M. North Bend, WA

"My Side of BEAST is a huge upgrade from the angle bar and spring clamp I used for years. I can't believe anyone is still using that antiquated method."

S.R. Boulder, CO

Precision Angle Plates

The angle plate is positioned above file because file is pushed into angle plate as you press down on edge. A file held on top of an angle bar is less accurate because it allows distortion of the angle as file is pushed away from the angle bar.

"Best clamp in the business"

Files or stones are securely held with clamp actuated by single large knob. (Spring clamps are awkward and tend to slip.)

Versatile

Use virtually any size file or stone at your choice of angle from 1° - 4°. (Note: This item does not come with a file and additional angles are facilitated by additional interchangeable angle plates.)

Ejection Slot

Ejection slot clears filings away from base. Stainless steel glide plate insures base structure will not be damaged.

Durable

Anodized aluminum main frame and stainless steel glide plate.

Safety

Ergonomic design positions hand away from sharp ski edge. Secure clamp prevents slippage of files or stones.

Side Edge Bevel 3° - 4°

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.
