Description

"Happier" expresses how we feel at Muirskate since the release of the Orangatang Caguama longboard skateboard wheels. The Caguama measures a massive 85mm in Diameter and 58mm wide making it perfect for long distances. Because we are sticklers about numbers, me measured the contact patch too (56mm).

"Happy Urethane" is the proprietary blend of urethane chemistry at Orangatang. That's all we can say about that, other than, Orangatang wheels are incredibly fasssst!

Remember the concept of rebound. You will hear it a lot as you become a longboarding jargon pro! Rebound is the wheel reaction to the surface that you are riding on. When the caguama compresses and then releases its outer-lip, the effect is that of a rubberband. Rebound helps maintain your speed in and out of corners while cruising and carving. Happy Urethane's rebound kicks away pesky pebbles and bounces over the surface of the road! Nothing will slow you down, even those cracks in the road that mysteriously cross your path.

Be sure to read the Orangatang description of the Caguama below for more highlights!

Orangatang's Description

Voluptuous urethane (proportionate in all the right places) for high speed with grip, comfort, and momentum.

Fast, Comfortable, & Functional — At 85mm tall, the Caguama provides maximum roll speed for commuting, carving, long-distance pushing, pumping, and electric longboards. The 56mm contact patch with its surface skin provides confident grip, while the subtly rounded edges help the wheels pass smoothly across pavement cracks. Also features a 3-dimensionally faceted outer wheel face.

Large, Supportive Core — A fully-exposed 46mm core with a deep “valley”-shaped cross section (same as in the Kegel) reduces weight while providing good acceleration and lots of momentum. This core is compatible with any electric skateboard that can accommodate Orangatang Kegels, allowing for an even faster and smoother ride.

Happy Thane Formula — The Caguama is poured in our proprietary Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, excellent traction, and smooth, predictable slides.

Hatching the Caguama took many years of testing and fine tuning. You’d think we’d be quicker at it by now, but as they say: the devil is in the details.

Hot damn

The description of these wheels is spot on, and damn funny. Just getting back into riding and while I love my ABEC 11 76mm Gumballs, I wanted to freshen my setup. Then I saw these. Paired em up with some Zealous Ceramic bearing, Paris V3 trucks, and purple Orangutan Nipples and these bad boys have been eating up some pavement like a wild beast while remaining solid and smooth like a classy gentleman sipping Scotch. I dont do much in the way of slides or hit any really aggressive hills (cause central Texas is all too hilly), but I can feel them wanting to as I am riding. And not in a bad out-of-control way, but in a lets do this kind of way.
