Orangatang: The Kilmer 69mm Longboard Skateboard Wheels
The Kilmers are the mid-sized wheels in Orangatang's lineup of new center set freeride longboard wheels. The 69mm Kilmers feature round lips and a stone ground finish for days and days of easy slides, and are really versatile, medium sized wheels that'll slide easily and still give you some grip at higher speeds. The Kilmers feature centerset cores, allowing you to flip your wheels if you notice wonky wearing and eliminate the problem. This means your wheels will last longer and you'll skate longer! Choose from three different durometer options: 80a, 83a and 86a.
We recommend going with the orange 80a Kilmers if you're on the lighter side or if you want a wheel with a bit more drift and a predictable slide that kills a good amount of speed. On the other hand, the harder 86a Kilmers are ideal if you want to spend the maximum amount of time possible in the sideways position, and if you're not looking to kill tons of speed when you slide. If you're on the heavier side, you'll also appreciate the 86a Kilmers. If you want a wheel that'll do it all and has the perfect grip to slip ratio, check out the 83a Orangatang Kilmers!
