The montana CRYSTAL one robot for a quality tune from start to finish

The new Montana GRIPtech system grinds in a vertical direction. For a precise, sharp and durable edge. All functional areas of the sports equipment are gently ground to RACE EDGE quality from start to finish, without grooves.



Why service your skis or board?

When your skis or snowboards come out of the factory, the bases are always ground flat, structured and waxed; the edges are sharpened and bevelled. Unfortunately this will not last forever. Usually, after just one week, your equipment will have base damage or burred edges. This will affect its performance.

Regularly serviced equipment will have an extended life, making your skis and boards easier to use. This in turn will improve your confidence and performance and let you get the best out of your equipment!
