Orangatang Wheels have been designed and created by the #1 longboard brand in the world.
After years of testing, research and mishaps, Loaded longboards sat down and created the Orangatang Wheels range back in 2008.
Quickly after, Orangatangs became known throughout the longboarding industry for their versatile urethane. Fast, grippy and some said, more pumpable than the Govenator of California!
Initially, there were two wheels with one duro/hardness – 80a Orange. Following from the popularity of this, came the addition of a second duro – 83a Purple. In 2010, Orangatang Wheels expanded their range further with the introduction of their third duro – 86a Yellow.
The longest standing wheels in the range are the Durian, Stimulus and Fat Free wheels. This goes to show that a good wheel never goes out of style! Over the years, the range has expanded to include 10 different models, complete with different duros.
Orangatang wheels have dominated the downhill market worldwide and have performed consistently for their purpose. Sliding and freeriding styles have also developed with thanks to the Orangatang range.
