Left to right is the Keanu 66mm, the Kilmer 69mm, and the Cage 73mm.

All these wheels feature a big core, stoneground running surfacerounded edges and narrow-ish contact patch, which gives an easy slide from new. (Check out our wheel guide for more info on all that...)

The Cage is pretty big for a longboard wheel these days, so watch out for wheelbite. On a drop-through or cutaway board it'll be a real nice cruising wheel with a bit more mass and decent roll speed. That bigger size also makes it better for big-mountain style freeride.

The Kilmer is the middle-of-the-road size offering at 69mm, it's spot on for most kinds longboarding - cruising, freeride, sliding or anything else you care to try.

The Keanu 66mm is probably our favourite from this lineup - just because we know that smaller wheels tend to slide better, and that big core gives a lot of support for such a small wheel. This would be ideal on a cruiser/hybrid board, it;s lighter for dancing, or great on a topmount freeride board with looser trucks where wheelbite is an issue.

You can't go wrong with O-Tang - check out the whole selection here!
