The Orangatang “Onsens“ are a 58mm, 100a duro wheel featuring a 19mm contact-patch, a centerset bearing seat, and a glass-free urethane core suggested for skateparks and the streets and anything else, because that’s skateboarding.
Points Of Interest:
During our riding of this wheel we focused our attention on three main features; the urethane, the core, and the shape.
1. Urethane: We enjoyed the slide-to-grip ratio that the proprietary “perky” urethane formula provided for. We also experienced absolutely zero flatspotting.
2. The Core: As for the glass-free core of this wheel, we did not find any noticeable pros or cons, but it looks pretty sweet.
3. Shape: Lastly, we give a big thumbs-up to the shape of this wheel, being that it’s smooth tapering from the core to the 19mm contact patch felt confortable, seemingly light for the size, with a fast rolling speed overall.
That’s a wrap! Thank you for watching the Wheelbase Magazine product review for the “Onsets” by Orangatang. We look forward to hearing from ya, so please comment in the comment section below and have a rad day!
