Orangatang Skateboard Wheels Recalled

June 23, 2009
Sporting Goods
Loaded Boards Inc.
The Danger:
The recalled skateboard wheel's core can shear and blow-out causing the wheel to separate from the skateboard truck's axle and bearings. This poses a risk of serious injury to riders.
This recall involves about 1,200 sets of Orangatang "In-Heat" skateboard wheels. They were sold in two styles: 75mm/purple/83a durometer and 75mm/orange/80a durometer. The words "orangatang," "In Heat," and the size and durometer are written on the sidewall of the wheel. The wheels were sold in sets of four.
Sold At:
Authorized Loaded Boards/Orangatang Wheels dealers nationwide from March 2009 through April 2009 for about $55 per set.
