The Orangatang Moronga Wheels were born out of the feedback from the Balut wheels. Morongas share the same large, supportive core and center-set bearing hub, but thicker lips and a full urethane wheel (as opposed to the open core of the balut) improve the predictability of the slide, and absorb road vibrations a little better too. The lips of the Morongas are also rounded and full, so as you wear them down, they'll still perform the same as when they were new, because the lips will maintain the same shape. Poured in Orangatang's Euphorothane, the Moronga wheels will last significantly longer than the other wheels in the line-up, but will still slide nice and smooth. If you liked the Balut, pick up the new and improved brother, the Moronga, for a slide-happy start to your 2013 skate season!
