Snowboards with serrated edges such as Magna-traction (Libtech/Gnu), Ultra Traction (Nidecker/YES), Frostbite edges (Burton) and others have non-uniform edge profiles. Our method of tuning edges maintains any serrated edge profile.

  • Should I remove my bindings from my snowboard before I bring it into the store?

If you can remove your bindings before you bring your snowboard in to be serviced please do as this helps us out when we are busy. However don't worry if you can't remove them -we will be more than happy to do this for you in-store.
