The Durian is poured in the Orangatang Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, plush feel, and smooth, predictable drifts.
Combining an offset bearing seat and relatively wide contact patch with stiff, rounded lips results in a product that feels like a blend between a perfectly broken-in race wheel and a driftier freeride wheel. A tall and moderately wide internal core provides just enough support for clean and chatter-free slides without compromising the wheel’s plush ride and progressive level of traction. The stone-ground contact patch ensures buttery-smooth slides right out of the box.
This wheel will be perfect for carving and cruising around, with the stone-ground finish always there for buttering down steez. They'll be a comfortable ride, feel smooth, soft, cushy and could get a bit sticky in a fast stand up slide (you have been warned).
Orange 80a is our favourite commuter wheel, more cushion for pushing
Purple 83a will feel like 80a if you are a heavier weighted skater say 90kg+
Yellow 86a is your big fast butter freeride wheel
Why you want this wheel
This will be a nice general all round wheel, something to put on a deck to commute around with. It is 75mm tall so you want a good size deck 38 inch to 44 inch long.
This wheel will roll easy, smooth, jump over the nasty bits, and if you have to break out a speed check or impress the ladies with a 180, it is going to be all good and not leave you with a face full of hot mix.
