About this product
This is a seriously large longboard wheel.
You can think of this as an even bigger, cruiser version of the Kegel, with rounded edges for better rollover on rougher surfaces, and a larger diameter for an even plusher ride.
If you want to cruise and your board will take a wheel this big, this is probably a better shout than the Kegel.
This much urethane takes a while to spin up to speed, but once you're rolling, nothing will stop you!
Orangatang tell us:
"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.
Purchase price includes set of 4 wheels."

We'd recommend the Blue 77A or the Orange 80A for most skaters. Given that this wheel is really intended to turn your cruiser longbard into a super plush steamroller, this wheel works best for this application in the softer duros.
The Blue 77A offers a plusher ride and more grip, at the possible expense of roll speed - but they're still very fast once you get them rolling!
The Orange 80A is a great all-rounder, a super-smooth ride, mega-high top speed, and they'll eat pavement cracks and fart stones for breakfast.
The Purple 83A is a bit more of a niche wheel, it's longer lasting and faster over super smooth surfaces, at the expense of plushness underfoot.
All wheels sold in packs of four.
