Maximize your glide and fun on the mountain with the right tuning equipment with Mt. Sun Gear tuning equipment! Our high quality wax brushes are a super important tool for both ski/ snowboard maintenance and for FAST surfaces. A good regime of brushing before and after waxing with different type brushes is essential for that perfect tune. For a great tune, you need three different bristle types- brass, horse hair and nylon brushes. Use a brass brush before you wax to clean out the the base ptex structure. Then hit with a horse hair brush to smooth the base before waxing. After waxing and scraping, run the nylon over the ski to get the base smooth and greasy looking with long strokes from tip to tail. Finish with the horse hair brush over the base and make sure there are no globs and that you can see the pattern from the stone grinder. A finished ski will shine and you will be able to see the pattern. Leave the thinnest layer of wax you can and and allow the texture/structure of the base to shine through! Brushes should be replaced when they get filled with wax, so depending on how often you wax, at least once a year.
Mt. Sun Gear Ski Binding Brake Retainers for Ski Tuning
There is nothing worse than trying to hold the brake out of the way while you file or wax. These super stout Mt. Sun Gear Binding retainers hold your brake back and out of the way while you sharpen and wax your skis.
The Mt. Sun Gear Gummi stone is a must have for your tuning kit. It allows you to get your edges truly sharp by removing microscopic burrs caused by filing your edges. Once you are done with files and diamond stones, rub the Gummi along the edge of the length of your ski or board for a super smooth smooth finish. Then, use it to detune the tips and tails of your board or skis to reduce the chances of catching the edge. Or keep it in your pocket to remove those pesky burrs caused by really hard snow- it will make the edge grip and hold again till you can get it back to your tuning bench for a proper tune. It will also remove pesky rust if you forget to dry your ski or board after Apres!
