Amazing shop and staff. The WhatsApp ability to message them to get help is a game changer. Starting to skate again after 10 years with a new surf skate is so much fun but only because I got the right one via excellent customer support.
Orangatang Caguama 85mm Longboard Wheels
The mighty 85mm Orangatang Caguama is a seriously large longboard wheel.
You can think of this as an even bigger, cruiser version of the 80mm 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. The Kegel is really a DH Race wheel - more grip and sharper lips, but less cushioning and those sharp lips can get hung up on things that the round-edged Caguama just rolls over.
Like all Orangatang wheels, the Caguama is poured from their "Happy" urethane - which is great for this application, fast, enough grip and high-rebound.
This much urethane takes a while to spin up to speed, but once you're rolling, nothing will stop you! Forget these wheels if you want a sliding setup, they're so heavy that they don't have a controlled slide at all, despite the hugely supporting core.
The Caguama is available in two duros:
- The Blue 77A offers a ridiculously plush 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 ridiculously fast for such a monster amount of urethane, and to be honest it's not as useless as you might imagine an 83A cruiser wheel to be. All that urethane is hard, but there's so much of it that the 83A Caguama is an extremely capable wheel on smoother surfaces. If you want speed and durability, this is a good shout.
We'd recommend the 80A for most skaters - the 77A at this size is possibly a bit too squishy and slow, unless you have either super-rough roads around you or you just want the cushiest ride available! At 85mm there's no need to go as soft as 77A for most skaters - we think you're better off maximizing roll speed with the harder option.
The Caguama is definitely a niche wheel, and you might struggle to get them on your board without wheelbite. But if you're looking to turn your board into a super plush all-conquering monster truck, look no further.
If you want the same squish in a slightly smaller package, check out the 75mm In Heat in 77A.

Orangatang Caguama 85mm Longboard Wheels Reviews
Thought I’d developed a new squeak. Closer inspection turns out it was the caguamas chuckling maniacally as they mocked every rock and crack they effortlessly plowed over.
Fantastic, really fast responsive wheels, don’t even need lights as they are so bright
Great wheels arrived super quick. Putting on a loaded Icarus and recycling the Kegels it came with onto a hackBrett wasser. The thing about Vandem though is the customer service. You phone with a question about something and they really take the time to talk you through it - and really know what they’re talking about. They don’t try to sell you something you don’t actually need just to make cash. If only more businesses would take this approach. In one sense it feels quite old school - specialist shops used to be like this (I’m 50), and those I trust are - but too few and far between. Makes business sense too. Keep up the good work chaps, you have my support!
Happy formula “it makes you happy”
These wheels rock

I bought my first board from these folks, at 46 years old nearly a year ago.
The service was first class. I found other places to be a tad patronising truth be told, maybe because of my age, maybe because of my ability or both.
Not here. They made me feel super...
