Much like its botanical namesake, the Durian 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 and more consistent wear over the life of the wheel.
The Durian is poured in O-Tang's proprietary Happy Thane formula for high roll speed, plush feel, and smooth, predictable drifts. These wheels are intended to build confidence with their predictability and elevate the current caliber of freeride longboard riding.
Feeling sweet? Feeling stinky? All is possible with the Durian.

Note About Blems:
The Blem wheels from Orangatang are less expensive because they may have minor flaws that are cosmetic or have slight manufacturing flaws like crooked graphics, a few extra air bubbles or small imperfections in the riding surface made during manufacturing. They are just as good but much cheaper and still covered by Orangatang's warranty.
