Video: Woman Slacklines Between Two Speeding Trucks

Record-holding highliner tackles her "most difficult line ever"
Staff Writer

Slacklining doesn't have to be extreme (you can do it with your kids), but when someone takes the balancing act up a notch, it's pretty amazing. Capitalizing on the sport's growing popularity, Volvo just released this video. Meant to hype the “precise handling” of their new FHs, world-record holding highliner Faith Dickey walks a line strung between two Volvo trucks, moving (according to the video speedometer) at around 80kmh (50 mph).

"The stunt itself had to have been the most difficult line I have ever walked," Dickey wrote on her blog. And it’s no wonder. Two moving trucks, a tunnel threatening to decapitate you (theoretically) at the end—props are due to both Dickey and the steady-handed (and -footed) drivers.
