So generally speaking for a nice carving ski with good grip on ice a smaller abs is better (lets ignore the ski flex now, just edge related) but for a more forgiving / easier to repair edge a wider abs is a good idea (powder ski). The ABS breaks on high impact, but its easier to replace then a smash...

Really nice vid :)

Btw. use nitril gloves, not vinyl (or latex) for epoxy ... these are useless regarding the chemicals (except for keeping ur hands visually clean)

Edge / ABS

Thinking about the width of the sidewall. Many people here seem to make it 8-10mm wide. On some skis where i destroyed the edge i could see that the ABS was the same width like the edge (see upper drawing). Sometimes the core gets a hit too... Im not sure if its preferable to make the ABS a little b...
