Description

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 angle ranges listed are variable depending on snow hardness, speed and your strength and skill level. A high level, technical skier tends to encounter hard and icy snow conditions. An increased bevel angle enables the base edge to be in immediate contact with the snow surface and side edges to penetrate deeper for better grip. A less experienced athlete may find that these extreme bevels tend to cause the ski to hook too quickly and edges to bite into the snow too much. This can cause erratic ski performance and possible knee injury.
