62mm Orangatang Skiff - Freeride Longboard Skateboard Wheels
We are truly stoked on Orangatangs new wheels The Skiff!
Orangatang already have a name for themselves when it comes to producing high quality longboard wheel that is perfect for fast, predictable slides and drifts. However Orangatang fans had to suffice with other inferior wheels when it came to setting up their park and pool boards, until now that is.
The Skiff is the perfect link between a park wheel and a downhill wheel. Its short diameter makes it perfect for getting the most pop out of your ollies. While the softer urethane combined with the pink AF core gives you a faster and quieter wheel that takes much less effort to push to the skate park.
Buy a set, throw them on, and impress your friends as you throw massive buttery stand-ups with the biggest smile and shred your way to the skatepark.
I don’t always ride small wheels. But when I do… they ride me.
With a versatile stature, impeccable style, and a ready-to-rock attitude, the Skiff is the most interesting wheel in the world. Designed for all-terrain use, it is a utilitarian alternative to a traditional street wheel for riding faster, steeper, rougher, and longer.
The pink AF core increases speed to blinding proportions and is specifically designed to annoy friends, family, and passersby. The 35x38mm core with a deep valley-shaped cross section keeps the rounded lips firmly supported, promoting smooth, consistent slides and even wear. The stone-ground contact patch ensures predictable and buttery slides right out of the box.
The Skiff is poured in our tried-and-true Happy Thane for a balance of high speed, comfortable roll, reliable traction, and clean slides. No flamingos were harmed in the making of this wheel.
Not for use in elevators.
Purchase price includes set of 4 wheels.
86a skiffsBy l dubs on 2017-04-30 Verified Purchase
these wheels are super long lasting (for their size) and super fun to freeride but 47 bucks is too much for such a tiny wheel so im leaving it at 4 stars. if u have the money get this for slipping around its worth it.
amazing for freerideBy Anthony on 2016-10-04
first off theyre an otang that dumps thane, that should be a good enough reason to buy them but really 86a is super buttery and smooth and kills no speed at all. theyre great park wheels too and dont chip. also super light and feel amazing to cruise on, all around great wheel 47$is just pretty expensive to kill in a few seshes

These wheels are fantastic. They're incredibly sugary, and they slide effortlessly. However, it isn't like an icy feeling that you would get with something like a peewee. Also, bright orange thane everywhere. The only downside is that they are a bit slow, and they wear a bit fast considering they're a sixty-two millimeter wheel priced at forty-seven dollars.
