Description

Orangatang have always been keen on keeping quality urethane in their wheels, and the Morongas are following suit!
The Orangatang Moronga Freeride Wheels are 72.5mm in diameter (while they're new anyway), centerset, stone ground, and available in three duros: 80a, 83a, and 86a.

We got to try a set of these a while back (presumably a prototype set...) and were pleased with their performance, even on small slopes! We found it very easy to initiate a slide, as well as initiate the return to the roll. The Moronga were designed to be a fun freeride wheel that allows for longer drifts and quicker, faster spins with minimal speed loss.

Based on our experience, the Orangatang Moronga's will work best on a 38-42" freeride board, but can still be tons of fun on a shorter board like the Loaded Poke!

Awesome freeride wheels
on 2017-02-04
The Morongas are some of the best freeride wheels I've ridden. The first slide I did was only about 15mph in a parking lot and boy did they slide... And me too, right onto my butt. They felt icy at first but when I got used to them they held traction really well, but the slides are the best part! They are very controllable wheels and slide really easy, but still hold your racing line! I'm 5'7 and 150 lbs and the grip vs. slip ratio, if you will, is perfect for me. Buy them!
Love them!

I got the yellow ones and they slide like a dream even when cruising around ! Yellow ones are recommended if you like a little easier and slower freeriding and want nice slides. They are really easy to slide compared to any wheels i've ever tried. I would also recommend getting the purple ones if you wanna go a little faster freeriding / downhill because the yellow ones might wipe-you-out / slide at corners or hard turns when you don't want them to. If you wanna go even faster like fast downhill freeriding maybe the orange ones because they have the highest durometers and can hold you on the road in sharp corners/turns at high speed. But yeah if you are going fast fast downhill you might struggle with these wheels at any durometer. Wheels for freeriding not for bombing hills in the mountains. This is a go to if you are looking for fast and good sliding wheels. Solid 5/5 ;-)

Didn't Like Them

They were always super choppy for me and I did not like them at all. I got the 83a and the reason I think I hated them is because I am a really lightweight rider so they were not slick enough for me they are also a high mm when I am used to about 65mm. So don't get these if you are a lightweight rider.
