I've done a little youtube video so you can get a better idea on how these puppies look, and work.

Michael, that front truck looks awsome! Hope I'll get a chance to try them out!

Is there going to be a rear truck as well? :)

We already have a rear! The Virage Slalom...designed to match the front Virage but will work well with the Vite. Same axles...

The Vite is a responsive, fast turning truck for use in tight slalom.

In the video above, I am trying out a combination of longer carves and snappy shorter turns whilst freeriding down the Serpentine.

The mini cone section was very wide and had been set up by some young French bladers who are now trying out skateboard slalom. Way to go!

Racer ready.

We are already on to our second run of Virage Vite front tight slalom trucks....AND for 2010 we now have two re-sellers in the US. I want to thank all the early adopters!

For slalom models our good friends at http://www.sk8kings.com will have the Virage Slalom models and the new Vite front slalom truck.

For LDP models we will be supplying http://www.subsonicskateboards.com/ and as soon as the Virage Vite LDP front version is ready they will have that too.

Both retailers have been chosen becaue we deal with them already, selling their decks in Europe. And I know they ride, they understand the trucks and they are also capable of dealing with any issues that may arise. So, shipping, tax etc will be streamlined.

Here are a few more pics to whet your appetites!
