Hooked On Slalom

7.625 inch x 28.2 inch Comet slalom deck with a shape looking a whole lot like the Santa Cruz John Hutson Cutback model.

Toe stop. Crucial equipment for pumping to gain speed on the course.

Cambered deck, wedged front truck dialed in loose, de-wedged back truck so that kingpin is near vertical thus reducing turning and helping gain traction.

Pocket Pistols 69mm 80a Manx wheels sitting on Tracker Racetrack RTS trucks. Ready to roll.
