Orangatang Moronga 72.5mm Wheels yellow (86a)
Orangatang have always been keen on keeping quality urethane in their wheels, and the Morongas are following suit! The Orangatang Moronga Freeride Wheels are 72.5mm in diameter (while they’re new anyway), centerset, stone ground, and available in three duros: 80a, 83a, and 86a.
We got to try a set of these a while back (presumably a prototype set…) and were pleased with their performance, even on small slopes! We found it very easy to initiate a slide, as well as initiate the return to the roll. The Moronga were designed to be a fun freeride wheel that allows for longer drifts and quicker, faster spins with minimal speed loss.
Based on our experience, the Orangatang Moronga’s will work best on a 38-42″ freeride board, but can still be tons of fun on a shorter board like the Loaded Poke!
The Orangatang Moronga is a technical freeride and freestyle wheel that is super lightweight and narrow to make it lighter. The Moronga is a perfect fit for freeride, cruising, or slides around town.
The Moronga features a centerset bearing seat and a symmetrical shape to allow for complete flexibility in flipping and rotating your wheels to promote even wear. A narrow 35mm contact patch balances the wheel.
