Much like its botanical namesake, the Orangatang Durian 75mm is a big, meaty, and succulent gob of urethane designed to carry you across town to the not-so-local fruit stand or to be smeared liberally over your favorite downhill freeride run.
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. Feeling sweet? Feeling stinky? All is possible with the Durian. The Durian is poured in our proprietary Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, plush feel, and smooth, predictable drifts.

Kyle Chin skates from top to bottom down a beautiful hill in Outerspace. Wanted to capture a bit of freeriding, DH, slow motion and scenery. Shot with a Canon 7D, LENS Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 and Sigma 70mm f2.8. This video captures the beauty of riding.
