The Orangatang Kegel is a superb grip and speed wheel offered by Orangatang. If you have enough room to clear this 80mm wheel on your board you'll be rewarded with immense traction and grip on the track, and a relatively smooth slide as well (especially once broken in). This is Patrick Switzer's race wheel of choice, and has been the fastest wheel on the track many times! 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. The Kegel is poured in Orangatangs proprietary Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, excellent traction, and smooth, predictable drifts.
