The Orangatang Fat Free Longboard Skateboard Freeride Wheel has set the standard in modern freeride longboard wheels. If the Fat Free could handle the demands of a Muirskate Shop rider, it can definitely handle anything you can dish out.
Made of Happy Urethane (Hi-Rebound Urethane) we can say that you will have less worries of getting stuck in cracks and having those small rocks wedge under your wheel bringing you to that instantaneous and unexpected stop.
We have had so much fun charging hills and throwing big slides down big hills in San Diego, it's going to be really hard to find a wheel that matches the predictability into and out of slides like the 86a and 83a Fat Free Freeride wheels.
We are really excited about the longevity and smooth sliding abilities of the Fat Free Freeride longboard slide wheel. Be sure to constantly rotate your wheels though for longer life of the wheel.
We love you Loaded. Send US some for free =)
Designed for Freeriding: Grippy when need with consistent slide characteristics; a good all around wheel.
Offset design and a relatively wide contact patch for grip (although not as grippy as the slalom/carving style of the 4 Presidents). Rounded inner and outer lips with stiff fled for clean slide initiation and smooth, chatter-free slides. Stone ground surface for consistent slides out of the box and more consistent wear over the life of the wheel. 65mm Fat Free Orangatang longboard Freeride wheels are great for smaller boards like minis and slide boards.
We're a bunch of San Diego skaters in a warehouse, assembling your longboards by hand, making sure you get the best ride under your feet. Yes, we need to pay the rent, but we're in this to spread the stoke of skating as far and wide as we can.
Founded back in 2005, Muir Skate started out as a 400 sqft shop at UCSD's John Muir College. Now located in a 7,000 sqft warehouse, just 10 minutes away from our birthplace, Muir Skate sells high quality longboard skateboard gear and sets the bar for best customer service. And we pronounce it "me-ew-er".
