Orangatang Moronga 72.5mm Wheels 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’s long sliding potential with a crisp and definitive hookup. Using the same large and lightweight core as the Balut the Moronga has been designed with a radically different lip profile.
As opposed to a soft radiused cross section the Moronga sports a thick linear and very slightly acute lip that blends down into the bearing seat after it reaches the outer diameter of the core.
This guarantees a proportionally consistent lip shape throughout the life of the wheel that slides predictably and provides a reliable level of traction.
Additionally the stiff and beefy lips partner with the wide core to minimize deformation and ensure smooth quiet slides and excellent wear characteristics. Encapsulating the entire core in urethane does add a bit of weight.
The tradeoff however is a more firmly supported lip and increased vibration damping for a plusher ride and smoother quieter drift. They come in three different durometers (urethane hardness); 80a 83a and 86a.
The harder the durometer the easier it will be to slide at lower speeds. The lower the durometer the more controllable your slides will be at higher speeds.
