Description

Orangatang is out with another line of longboard skateboard wheels - The Kilmer is the mid-size wheel in the line up, measuring in at 69mm in diameter.
In comparison to the Stimulus, Orangatang's previous 70mm wheel, the Kilmer features a larger core and a larger contact patch. The larger core means that this wheel will be easier to accelerate and will be slightly faster than the Stimulus. The larger contact patch allows for the wheel to grip a tad more than the Stimulus.

This wheel will be great for downhill and freeride boards. The word from several Muir Skate crew members is that this wheel is pure money (it's really good!) Take this wheel to any of your favorite hills and shred. This wheel will be able to perform without a doubt.

Pick up whichever flavor peaks your interest.
The orange (80a) will wear the fastest, but leave you with satisfying buttery slides.
The purple (83a) will give you the best of both worlds of sliding and decent wear.
The yellow (86a) will provide you with long slides and nice wear patterns.

Super soft, so they won't last long, but worth the investment. They handle the variable city terrain well

The 86a last forever, slide well over all types of pavement, and are the slidiest of all the duros, but not that slidey. Recommended for more standup slides and lighter riders. The initiation is pretty easy and they wear super consistently and are almost impossible to flatspot or oval. The slide is kind of sugary with a little bit of grip. The 83a are pretty grippy for a freeride wheel and are more fun when you are going faster and for hands down drifts. They are not as consistent as the 86a in my opinion but I am a lighter rider at around 140 lbs. They last almost as long as the 86a and wear just as evenly. 83a kilmers lasted me a bunch of neighborhood skating and at least 8 tuna runs. The feeling of the slide is unique and the wheels kill a good amount of speed. Would recommend these for heavier riders and canyon skating. The 80a are just as grippy as the 83a in my experience but with a slide that feels more like a big pink eraser. They will thane more and can oval if you aren't careful. The slide is more consistent than the 83a in my opinion though. Would recommend the 80a for heavier riders, like over 170 lbs and for fast, technical skating.
