Review: Orangatang Keanu's.
Some wheel info: Diameter: 66mm Contact Patch: 38mm Durometers: 80a, 83a, 86a Bearing Seat: Centerset Formula: Peachy Thane Core: high-strength, high-stiffness, heat-resistant urethane I have the 86a. Now that all those numbers are out of the way, let's start the review. First off, I'd like to say that I do not do much freeride. But these wheels made me want to get more into it. I only know speed checks and fast 180's but I can tell you that these wheels are very controllable. I set them up on my Landyachtz Loco (review tomorrow) because of their size. They're a pretty lightweight wheel, pretty good for freestyle because of their size. I don't get any wheelbite on the loco anymore so thats nice. I can already see them wearing down, and I really haven't slid on them that much. I have a feeling that if I continue freeriding often, they'll core pretty quickly. Remember to rotate your wheels too guys! You want that nice even wear pattern. What you don't want, is to have 2 wheels cored and 2 with a bit of urethane left on them. Now go skate. I give these wheels an 8.5/10 because they're pretty expensive (to me at least. $52 is quite a bit to a 15 year old.)

@0BryceMcGarity0 which one/ones did you try? I only had experience with the 80a. Would like an opinion on the 83.

@0BryceMcGarity0 I really haven't slid on them much, so I'm actually happy you commented!

@mpoblete I had the 86a. My friend had the 83a and loved them. Pushing 20+ standies with control. It's a good all around wheel!

I dunno guys, I love these wheels, slide on them a lot, have gotten very little wear, and feel that the slide is very controllable. Just my opinion, also, we all have very different set ups
