The dependence of take-off velocity (TOV) on selected head parameters was measured with an air bearing spindle equipped with a strain gauge. Considering the range that was studied for each parameter, TOV was found to be strongly dependent on crown, skew angle, ski jump and suspension preload, in decreasing order. Camber height and rail width were found to have a lesser influence. Edge blend did not affect TOV; however, increasing edge blend improved the head-disk performance in contact start-stop (CSS) tests
