Edge Bevel describes the degree of angle that a ski tech puts on a ski or snowboardedge. The level of edge hold depends on the edge bevel of both the side edge and the base edge of the ski or snowboard.

The average edge bevel equals one degree on the side edge and one degree on the base edge providing for a overall edge bevel of 88 degrees.

Snowboard and Ski Racers, Edge Heads and expert riders prefer greater degrees of Edge Bevel to provide sharper ski and snowboard edges for greater edge hold.
Hey, I prefer to point em, but when I need it, I like a 3 Degree side Edge Bevel for kick-ass edge hold on those bullet-proof ski runs.
