85mm Orangatang Caguama 77a Blue Longboard Skateboard Wheels
Introducing the smoothest, fluffiest, grippiest, most thane-line-leaving urethane in Orangatang's History. The Blue Caguama comes in a limited soft formula 77a durometer and 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!
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.

Can't beat the look of these wheels. Leaves huge stripes when sliding and the soft rubber makes for a smooth ride.
Exceptional Performance.By Eli on 2020-06-26 Verified Purchase
These wheels are basically my new favorite, perfect for getting through all kinds of rough stuff. You'd have to hit a straight up rock, not some pebble, to stop these wheels. Can go over branches, and they're too large to get caught up in any stormdrain iv'e ever seen. Super grippy, so they don't lose traction unless you really want them to; which I never do. That said; one of my wheels is already missing a tiny chunk after just a few days of riding around in my historic hometown, with its cracked roads and cobblestone-lined crosswalks. It's a rough place for any longboard wheel, but i've never had one so prone to damage. I like these so much I don't mind replacing them, but if longevity is a concern, these might not be right for you.
