The Orangatang Caguama: Big and Beautiful.
Voluptuous urethane (proportionate in all the right places) for high speed with grip, comfort, and momentum.
Fast, Comfortable, & Functional — At 85mm tall, the Caguama provides maximum roll speed for commuting, carving, long-distance pushing, pumping, and electric longboards. The 56mm contact patch with its surface skin provides confident grip, while the subtly rounded edges help the wheels pass smoothly across pavement cracks. Also features a 3-dimensionally faceted outer wheel face.
Large, Supportive Core — A fully exposed 46mm core with a deep “valley”-shaped cross section (same as in the Kegel) reduces weight while providing good acceleration and lots of momentum. This core is compatible with any electric skateboard that can accommodate Orangatang Kegels, allowing for an even faster and smoother ride.
Happy Thane Formula — The Caguama is poured in Orangatang’s proprietary Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, excellent traction, and smooth, predictable slides.
Hatching the Caguama took many years of testing and fine tuning. You’d think they’d be quicker at it by now, but as they say: the devil is in the details.

Set of four Orangatang Caguama longboard wheels (enough for one complete longboard).
Orangatang Wheels was hatched in 2008 as a means of advocating for the civil liberties of the indigenous river capybaras of Southern California. They also gained international praise in 2009 for their brief and completely unrelated foray into exotic animal jerky manufacturing and wholesale.
