*Ceramic Disk Sharpen is only recommended if you have a flat base. The ceramic disks we use to sharpen equipment cannot sharpen the base bevel if the base is not flat. In some cases, a stone grind (Performance Tune) will be required to get a proper base bevel. This option is more of a side edge sharpen only if the base is not flat.

Importance of Ski Binding Adjustment
Your bindings must be set to an international standard known as DIN which requires very specific calculations based on your personal height, weight, age, ski boot sole length and skier ability level. Having your bindings set correctly ensures that you and your skis will remain connected unless you have a crash at which time they need to release to minimize harm to you. Bindings don’t last forever. There is a list of indemnified bindings published annually and once a binding model is no longer on this list it is considered unsafe to use. Our Wintersteiger Speedtronic Calibrator is itself calibrated yearly to make certain that it is accurate. Don’t find out the hard way - have your bindings inspected and calibrated annually.
