From the murky blue bath water of generations of Japanese businessmen, the Orangatang Onsens emerge in their final form.
The Orangatang Onsen park wheels continue to blend the boundaries of traditional skateboarding, park riding, and longboarding. Designed for park riding in particular, this proprietary new formula, core design, and shape were created to find that perfect balance between grip and slip.
Grippy enough to hold high lines in the bowl, but slidey enough for predictable speed checks and recoveries from sketchy scenarios.
The Onsens are poured in a new Orangatang formula: Perky Thane. Fast, smooth, grippy, and durable. Flat spot resistant.
The color of the wheels is extracted from the bathwater of Japanese businessmen, making the Onsens ideal for park and pool skating. Strong yet compliant cores enhance wear characteristics and increase roll speed even further.
The clean, rounded lips keep you safe from hangups on the coping, and our unique sanded finish means the Onsens are pre-broken in and ready to rip, right out of the box.

Street Fighter - Steven Vera on the Boombox38 ThermoGlass
Sep 15, 2014
Style Is Created, Not Mandated || Steven Vera's original nickname when he came onto the team was the 'hammer' because his main job was to help us test the strength of our MaestroPRO prototypes. His flat ground, longboard style was unconventional. "Who does that sh_t.." people asked. "I do," said Steven and he kept skating the way he enjoyed and the way that came natural to him. He put his headphones on and he did what was fun for him. He proved that despite any amount of haters and weak conformists, a confident kid in New York can go a long way if he sticks to his craft.
In Europe and Asia, Steven's style struck a chord with skaters and longboarders not jaded by the pop-skate-culture hate that has agitated the sport here in the US. His style has inspired riders in many places he's never been, but perseverance will take you places. As we write this video description Steven is on a plane for the Bustin Asia Tour with stops in Seoul, Shanghai and Beijing where a welcoming skate community has coined his Chinese nickname as 'Street Fighter'.
Be true. Skate For Fun.
