The Technology Behind The Perfect Tune

The Wintersteiger Jupiter machine is a true game-changer in the world of ski tuning. Its greatness lies in its unmatched precision, innovation, and adaptability. This state-of-the-art technology has redefined the way skis are prepared for the slopes. It offers the unique capability to apply variable edge bevels, tailoring skis to individual preferences and specific performance demands. This ensures superior grip and control underfoot, as well as effortless turn initiation at the ski tips and tails. This provides skiers with a perfect balance of precision and maneuverability. Consequently, its versatility, speed, and accuracy, add the convenience of handling multiple pairs of skis simultaneously. This makes it an indispensable tool in the arsenal of skiers and tuning professionals.

Wintersteiger’s Jupiter ski tuning machine has brought a game-changing innovation to the world of skiing with V-Edge technology. This feature allows for variable bevels on ski edges. With V-Edge technology, skis can be tuned to have a superior edge hold underfoot while maintaining more forgiving edge angles at the tip and tail, facilitating smoother turn initiation. The Jupiter machine allows skiers to customize their equipment for various snow conditions, terrain types, and personal preferences, ensuring an individualized and exhilarating skiing experience on every descent.

Wintersteiger’s state-of-the-art tuning machines have always excelled at applying custom base structures, a key element in optimizing ski performance. Base structures serve the vital role of channeling moisture away from the ski’s base, reducing friction, and are adaptable to different patterns tailored to various ski types and snow conditions.
