I’m new to long boarding at 59 years old so bought a lush freebyrd lo-pro woodgrain drop through based on the website saying it was good for total beginners, the reviews and of course I think it looks good as does my granddaughter! It was really easy to order on line and arrived next day well packaged with a personal note (nice touch) I’m up and riding not quite carving yet but that’s the aim before I turn 60! Great service guys
Orangatang Stimulus 70mm Longboard 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.

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...
