I was looking for a board! I did NOT need to look any further! Vandem looked to be highly reviewed, and now I know why. I visited the website and was impressed, so rang them up for a chat. Adam was super helpful, and also just a sound guy! He knew his stuff, and 24 hours later I was holding my new Lush Dagyr on an elite setup. The board is sweet! And Vandem are awesome! I 100% recommend them, have already put another friend onto them, and I'll definitely be going back! GET YOUR LONGBOARDS HERE!!!!!!

Orangatang Stimulus Wheels 70mm

The Orangatang Stimulus was released at the same time as the smaller 65mm Fat Free in 2009, as a dedicated freeride wheel to complement the 70mm 4President and 75mm In Heat race wheels.

 

Featured a stone-ground running surface, narrower contact patch, offset core and round lips, the Stimulus is poured from the same fun, slidey high-rebound urethane as all other Orangatang longboard wheels. It skates very much like a worn-in 4President.

As a dedicated freeride wheel, Orangatang updated the Stimulus to the big-cored 69mm Kilmer and 73mm Cage some years ago. If you're looking for a wheel that slides, we'd suggest you check those out. Bigger cores give a smoother slide, more even wheel wear, and faster roll speed - all good news if you like to do big skids.

You might think that this consigns the Stimulus to the wheel dustbin of history - but you'd be wrong. Not everyone wants to slide - and the smaller old-school core of the stimulus results in a plusher, more comfortable ride than the Cage and Kilmer.

 

The Stimulus is available in four duros:

  • 77A (Blue) - super soft and plush, but not a lot of grip - for cruisers, we'd recommend the 77A 4President instead. Available on request if you really want it though!
  • 80A (Orange) - a good all-round hardness that makes the most of this shape. Usually the one to go for.
  • 83A (Purple) - a bit faster on smoother surfaces, longer lasting, but a harsher ride when things get choppy.
  • 86A (Yellow) - a dedicated freeride wheel really, these days we'd recommend the Purple 69mm Kilmer instead. We can get it if you really want some though - get in touch!

The Stimulus is definitely not an obvious choice in the Orangatang lineup these days - with the grippier 4President and the slidier Kilmer, there are better wheels available for specific uses. It's still a solid all-round wheel for pretty much any longboard though, well worth checking out.
