Be part of our R&D process.
Product development at Loaded is and always has been about working with great people to grow ideas and bring them to fruition. Our in-house crew and global team of ambassadors have collaborated to bring many great products to life over the years. We’re opening our doors a bit wider for specific projects, and now you can have a say in our development process.
Due to popular demand, we're offering a limited run of Orangatang Caguamas and Kegels in blue 77a: the smoothest, fluffiest, grippiest, most thane-line-leaving urethane in Orangatang's history!
The new blue Caguama and Kegel are poured in our same proprietary Happy Urethane formula but in a softer 77a version.
These big, bad, blue boys are available in extremely limited quantities, and we want YOUR feedback to help us continue refining our products and decide if this new color and duro are appropriate for other wheels in the Orangatang lineup!
Whether you get your 77a wheels from us directly or from your favorite local shop, please share your feedback with us by visiting the link below!
We are blown away with how quickly these limited edition wheels moved. Out of the blue, we're SOLD OUT of the Blues!
Please contact your local shop to see if they have a few of the new blues left for you!
Purchase the Menopause and In Heat together to test side by side.
Estrus is over; it’s time for our 75mm race wheel to enter Menopause.
After refining a performance-oriented core design in the development of the Cage, Kilmer, and Keanu centerset freeride wheels, we’re excited to explore that technology in our popular and proven race/hard-carving wheel, the In Heat.
The new Menopause wheels feature the same Happy Urethane as the In Heats. The changes are as follows:
• Exposed (vs. encapsulated) core
• Slightly wider and shorter core (In Heat core is 1” W x 1.75” H; Menopause core is 1.5” W x 1.5” H)
• 2mm greater width/contact patch (58mm compared to 56mm on the In Heat)
• 2mm greater offset (measured from inner lip)
We've performed initial testing of the new Menopause. Now we’d like your input and feedback to help us make the best possible wheel.
By purchasing these wheels, you agree to join the Menopause R&D newsletter. You'll receive a few emails with more information, testing guidelines, and a feedback form you'll submit after testing the wheels (over a period of about one month). After you complete the feedback form as requested, you’ll receive your hard-earned Loaded Labs R&D badge number for 50% off the purchase of any single item from the Loaded or Orangatang websites (item must be in stock to qualify).

The Loaded race ambassadors love the Truncated Tesseract, but a few wanted to see if a slightly stiffer board would get them going faster. After months of testing at the Hadron Collider beneath the Franco-Swiss boarder, Loaded concluded that applying a future-forward, hi-tech layer of carbon fiber made the Tesseract look totally badass... and perfectly rigid and agile for skateboarding fast.
Loaded has produced a very limited run of 300 individually numbered modified boards and is offering them one-time-only on our website. Loaded is donating 20% of the proceeds from each board to the awesome non-profit STOKED whose mission is to inspire low-income teens and help them succeed through action sports. These funds will be used exclusively to get kids on skateboards in the Los Angeles area and our team will be on hand to help along the way. Loaded has been involved with STOKED for over a decade and has witnessed thousands of smiles and seen how much learning a new skill can change a life.
