Once upon a time in a magical land, lions cavorted with lambs and unicorns munched on the fat of the sky.
Harsh times befell this land. Winter has come.
In these dystopian times the Chubby Unicorn can no longer be a beacon of peace and corpulence.
Behold the Blood Slayer!
A monstrous reincarnation of the classic Chubby Unicorn, the Blood Slayer boasts rocker, wide W concave, functional wheel well flares, and nose and tail kicks to create an ergonomic platform for downhill destruction and freestyle fury. Built-in grab rails and recessed, angled truck mounts shave weight, lower your center of gravity, and keep your steering geometry true. Urethane sidewalls and new truck hole inserts, a basswood core, and a UHMW base provide abrasion resistance, durability, moisture resistance, and vibration damping.

We've tested the Chubby Unicorn on a wide variety of cast and precision trucks. There is a wide selection of great trucks on the market today, but below are some insights on a few of our favorites.
Caliber 10" (44°)
Our favorite all-around cast truck for the Chubby to date. Offers good stability at speed, comfortable lean for standup slides (without getting sloppy), and a relatively short axle-to-axle wheelbase for easier ollies. We recommend a 1/4" riser to avoid wheelbite on most bushing and wheel setups.
Paris 180mm (50°)
A lively, responsive, and quick turning truck. An excellent choice for carving, dancing, freestyle, moderate speed freeride, or technical downhill. We run Paris on the Chubby without risers or with a very thin rubber shock pad for extra vibration damping.
Caliber 10" (50°)
A more restrictive bushing seat and zero rake make the 50 Caliber less lively but more stable at higher speeds than the Paris. We run 50 Calibers on the Chubby without risers or with a very thin rubber shock pad for extra vibration damping.
We run a range of wheel sizes from 65mm to 75mm on the Chubby Unicorn with great results. Below is a list of various wheel sizes and shapes that work well on the Chubby and what style(s) of riding we recommend them for.
65mm freeride - lightweight and compact option for freestyle and technical freeride
70mm freeride - fantastic all-around wheel size for freeride and freestyle
70mm race - smaller race wheel for quick turning, technical downhill runs and higher speed freeride
75mm freeride - good choice for high speed freeride
75mm race - larger race wheel for optimal traction and roll speed
