Great shop, advice, service and gear. My 6 year old shouted "YES! My gear has arrived!" And now we're love skating together. Great family time! Can't wait for Christmas!
Orangatang Fat Free Wheels 65mm
The 65mm Orangatang Fat Free is the smaller of the original Orangatang "freeride" wheels - the larger being the 70mm Orangatang Stimulus.
Featuring a slightly offset core, narrower contact patch, stoneground running surface and rounded lips, the Fat Free was intended to be a smaller freeride version of the 4President Grip Wheel. It's poured from the same "Happy Urethane," which is fast and sugary - a lot of fun.
Orangatang has since updated the Fat Free with a bigger core to produce the 66mm Oranatang Keanu, which is a little smoother whilst sliding, wears more evenly and does roll a bit faster.
So why go for the Fat Free over the Keanu? Simply put, whilst the the bigger core of the Keanu is certainly good news for sliders, it also results in a harsher ride. The leaves the Fat Free is all about a smoother roll in a small package.
The Fat Free is available in three duros:
- 80A (Orange) - Maximum cushion for a slightly slower roll speed and less durability, we'd recommend the 80A if your local roads are a bit rougher. You won't find a plusher ride in any 65mm wheel than the 80A Fat Free!
- 83A (Purple) - A slightly smoother slide and faster roll speed, this is good if you have nice smooth surfaces nearby, but for freeride has been superseded by the Keanu.
- 86A (Yellow) - A dedicated freeride duro, which to be honest is fairly limited in use. We can get them in for you - just get in touch if you want a set!
The Fat Free may not be Orangatang's premium freeride offering any more - but it is still a great smaller wheel, perfect if you are looking for a smooth ride on a smaller board that's prone to wheelbite.
65mm is a great size for a cruiser wheel - nice and light, fairly well supported and rolls over most things, and the premium Orangatang urethane represents a serious upgrade over the cheaper wheels that probably came on your cruiser board. The Fat Free may be an older shape - but it still have a place in the Orangatang wheels lineup and you should definitely check it out.

Orangatang Fat Free Wheels 65mm Reviews
Had these wheels before and they perform brilliantly, I was more impressed by the fast service provided from vandem
Very please with the wheels - they feel smooth on my micro cruiser. Just a beginner but they give me much more confidence when going on awful London pavements. Also brilliant service: the handwritten sign is a small but nice touch. I will definitely buy from them again - and probably contact them for some advice on my next setup. E
Excellent service from Vandem as usual. Nice set of boots.
Fab wheels I will definitely buy again..... my favourite set up.... brilliant
Orangatang Fat Free Wheels 65mm: FAQ's
Q: How long do Orangatang Fat Free's last?
They last quite a while - unlike a lot of more modern freeride and slide wheels, they don't dump a lot of 'thane on the road - no thanelines = longer life!
Q: I have a dancing board. Are these wheels any good for that?
Yes, they're about right some something like a Lush Legend or a Loaded Bhangra. Their smaller diameter makes them perfect for topmounted full shapes with no wheel cutouts. Perfect fro cruising around, dancing and a biit of sliding - not so good for flat-out downhill and speed.
