Edge Angles for ELAN SLX Fusion to use on dry slope

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi everyone!

Im quite new to the dryslope world, therefore I would like some good advice from the dryslope Gurus out there!!
I am about to buy a pair of ELAN SLX FUSION (155cm) that I intend to use for some racing, nothing too serious, just fun races.
I have spoken with the seller (http://elanskisales.co.uk) and they told me that the skis come from the factory with 0.5 degrees edge base angle and 90 degrees side edge angle.
Any suggestion about the right edge setting for this model?
My idea is to set them with 87 degree on the side and leave the 0.5 degree on the base.
I am currently skiing a pair of Atomic Redster SL and they are 1 degree on the base and 3 (87) on the side.

Any help, tip, idea would be more than welcome!!
Thanks in advance Madeye-Smiley Madeye-Smiley Madeye-Smiley Madeye-Smiley

Welcome to snowHeads.

They come with an 89 side edge not 90. And yes, leave the base at 0.5 and set the sides to 87. You'll probably need to trim the sidewalls back first.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?
