That’s right people. The crazy scientists at Orangatang have only gone and released the Kegel and Caguama in a new durometer and colour. We here at SkateFurther have been rolling on Kegels for years and have loved the new Caguamas. The 77a blue’s look like they will be an amazing distance wheel and we cant wait to get a review up on the site after … Continue reading Orangatang in Blue!?
We have known about the 85mm from Orangatang for quite some time. The 80mm Kegel has become a firm favourite with distance skaters and the 85mm Seismic Speedvent is up there as one of the best. The combination of Otangs ‘Happy Thane’ and the larger size means we now have a wheel that will last and last, whilst rolling like a dream. How do we … Continue reading The Orangatang Caguama is here!
Over to California for our latest Reader’s Rides! Nick is rolling quite the setup! The Rayne Ego is a double drop, rockered platform deck meant for bombing hills and pushing far. The wedge up front adds 6 degrees to your truck’s angle and is wedged downward 6 degrees in the back. I’m running Don’t Trip Poppys at 61°/14° with a spherical hanger in the front and … Continue reading Reader’s Rides – Nick Menor
Skatefurther’s Nat got to sit down (well everyone was sitting but in different hemispheres! ) and chat with Jasper and Eliah, just 2 of the 6 members of the ‘Younger & Further’ distance skating team to find out a bit more about them, what they are up to and what they have planned. SF: Hi guys! First of all, introduce yourself and let us know … Continue reading Younger & Further
Neil completes all the entries for the #harfangatang wheels. He reviews a DIY Bo Landpaddle. Hello SkateFurther my name is Neil Hayler and my review is for something that has been the saving grace for my long distance pushing and might help others. About five years ago I suffered a dvt or blood clot in my push leg calf muscle. After about six months of recovery and looking … Continue reading Review – DIY Bo Landpaddle
The first Harfangatang review for a route comes in. Karl gives us his thoughts on the Vennbahn a 130km long cycle track that runs through three different countries. My name is Karl and I live in Aachen/Germany which is just north of the German uplands called Eifel. (It has nothing to do with the Eiffel-Tower btw…) So in the town it’s quite hilly and a longboarding is … Continue reading Review – Vennbahn
Michael takes the Harfangatang Kegels for a few skates and gives SkateFurther a review. Great distances mean a great variety of surfaces, no wheel will be perfect for them all. Softer, bigger wheels will plough through soft gravel, mud and carry on spinning longer with every push but that extra weight will cost you energy getting back up to speed when the rougher surfaces slow … Continue reading Review – Harfang Stage 4 Kegels
Competition time! We have hooked up with the good folks at Harfang and Orangatang to do a review of their Stage 4 cut Kegel. We are currently getting them tested by pushers and LDPers across the globe and will give you our full review soon. Meanwhile, Orangatang kindly slipped in an extra set of wheels for us and we are going to give them away! … Continue reading Competition – Harfangatang Giveaway
