Mk2 DH Slaloms
Agile and grippy characteristics of a narrow truck married with Valkyrie’s patented offset bushing seat technology for a perfect balance of grip and control: the Mk2 Slaloms have been re-imagined with higher, split rake and two width options. After testing a bunch of rake options, we settled on a 5/3 split to make tuck-leaning easier while maintaining a rock-solid feel down any road.
Most popular slalom trucks boast an inline rear axle, which means that if you drew a line between the axles it would go through the center of the bushings. Our coplanar bushing seat design puts the boardside bushing inline with the axles on all our trucks, providing that higher grip and control without needing a unique rear truck.
We have two spaceale axle options to choose from, allowing these trucks to come in 115-125mm or 130-140mm widths. The wider width can be purchased with either 5/3 split rake or symmetrical 3mm rake.
Trucks ship with RipTide or Venom tall barrels setup for your weight.

"First day with the new slaloms I’ve noticed they feel different than the last protos I had but they felt more responsive, perfect amount of grip and amazing tuck leaning through chicanes. There was a strong tail wind and I was somehow able to tuck lean corners that I sometimes slide going real fast and sliding also felt perfect. Just all around perfect race trucks so far."

"I skated the new slalom in DH& freeride and my first thought it's that they are more fluid. It still the same truck but I feel them more fluid, it turn better in corners. More stable and linear in curves."

"Loving the new 5/3 rake 115-125mm setup and how it has changed from its old model. Lighter and more agile due to the 5 up front while still holding with great stability in the back. I've been taking these on a lot of stand up and puck down runs and they’ve passed the test on both from me! 10/10 most fun."
