Otang pops out a new one: Introducing the Orangatang Kegels[wptouch target=”mobile”]
Just when you thought the crazed minds at Orangatang Wheels couldn’t get any weirder, they squeeze out a new wheel called the Kegel. If you don’t what Kegels are, you’re probably 12 years old. Run along and educate yourself through the power of Wikipedia. At 80mm, these are the biggest wheels in the Orangatang lineup and are the wheels that Patrick Switzer has been racing on for the last little while. The Orangatang Kegels will be available September 4th.

80 mm diameter | 56 mm width | 56 mm contact | 8.1 oz/wheel
The Kegel is your ticket to high-speed steamroller action and the obliteration of a variety of small mammals. The large 80mm diameter generates high roll speeds while a moderate width of 56 mm allows for a versatile balance of traction and slide response. A cantilevered outer lip with a straight profile is pliable enough to hug the road for grip while also ensuring consistent performance as the wheel wears. The shorter inner lip features a subtle inward bevel for race-worthy traction and predictable drifts.
A fully-exposed 46mm core with a deep “valley”-shaped cross section reduces weight while providing good acceleration, lots of momentum, and crisp slides. This core uses the same high-strength, high-stiffness, and heat-resistant material we developed and use in the entire Orangatang product line.
The Kegel is poured in our Happy urethane formula. Tested and proven over the years in our 75mm In Heat and 70mm 4President race wheels, Happy thane has the ideal blend of grip, buttery slide consistency, and vibration damping for controllable and intuitive downhill performance.[sam id=”9″ codes=”true”]
