- Valkyrie - Voxter Mk3.5 DH slaloms (Forest Green) (set of 2)
UPDATE: all Mk3.5 slalom trucks are shipping with wheelbite blockers installed!
We cranked up the responsiveness and grip with the Mk3 DH Slaloms. They consist of our tried and true Mk2 DH Slalom rear (R3mm rake) paired with a revolutionary new front truck design. The Mk3.5 version makes subtle tweaks from the Mk3 version released in Fall 2022: we built in a flat seat that we believe to be the perfect all-rounder for Downhill to LDP. In the spirit of constant improvement, we also beefed up the hanger to make them even stronger. Please note, these do not have interchangeable bushing seats.
The dual-pivot design of the front truck fully prescribes the movement of the hanger, allowing us to get creative with how our bushings are used (like flipping a tall face cone so the wide end is against the hanger).
Two front base angles are available at 49° and 45°. We expect most folks will want the 49°, but the 45° can be an excellent choice for pairing with decks that have wedge built in. In either case, we recommend pairing with a low rear base angle.
Our hangers are made from super strong Aluminum 7075-T6 and paired with heat treated 17-4 stainless axles. Our bases and arms are cut from 6061-T6 and have undergone extensive cycle testing and real-world skating to ensure the connection between them won't develop slop overtime, as long as the screws are set to proper torque.
The open seat platform allows the use of wide bushings, like RipTide Chubbies, Fatcones (run either way!) and Venom Kegs. These ship with 87a and 90a RipTide Tall Fat Cones for the front truck, and either 93/96a (30° & adjustable base) or 96/96a (15° base) tall krank barrels in the rear
Axle spacers are stainless so they won't deform but also provide protection against corrosion. a Milspec kingpin offers shorter threads to avoid chewing up your bushins, and a flippable CNC turned cupped washer provides excellent support.
Ridiculously durable RipTide WFB pivots support the hanger. Kingpin & axle nuts are grade 8 steel to prevent thread damage over time.
Each kit includes the following:
- 1x Dual Pivot front truck (45° or 49° base)
- 1x rear Mk2 slalom rear truck (R3, 15° or adjustable base)
- 1x truck riser for the rear to make our 15° base the same height as the front. 30° and adjustable bases will be slightly higher than the front truck when using the 1/4" riser.
- 1 set of spare Arm hardware for the front truck (just in case!)
- Riptide 87a Krank tall fatcone installed (flipped) and a 90a TFC as a spare for tuning.
