About Orangatang The Cage, Centerset Freeride, 73mm Longboard Wheels
Orangatang Centerset Wheels
The Cage is one of Orangatang's centerset freeride wheel contributions to the longboard scene. Featuring a centerset bearing seat and big rounded lips, this wheel is meant to go sideways over and over again. With urethane perfectly formulated for a harmonious combination of grip and slip, the Cage enables you to have great control. With 41.4 mm of stone ground contact patch, these wheels are ready and willing to slide right out of the box.
Orangatang's proprietary Peachy Thane was developed for a perfect balance of smooth drifts and long lasting durability. Grippier than Orangatang Moronga's Euphorethane, but slidier than the Happy Thane used in most of their wheels. This Peachy Thane is made for speed control, long slides, and a smooth ride.
Wheel Shape Explained
The Cage features a centerset bearing seat and symmetrical, rounded lips, enabling optimal wear patterns by way of flipping and rotating the wheels as you use them. Rounded lips help with letting the wheel break out of grip and into a slide. Its wide contact patch and large diameter make this a fairly large freeride wheel, putting it on the grippier side of the freeride spectrum.
73mm is fairly large, so be sure to take note! Risers, wheel wells, wheels cutouts, or stiffer bushings might be a good idea to avoid wheel bite!
