Orangatang Baluts... Be the first to own.....Feb 2nd

 

 

From Orangatang -

"Inspiration


As we collectively began to dabble in new directions in sliding, we found ourselves in want of a new and unique wheel. Our existing lineup of freeride wheels (the Durian, Stimulus, and Fat Free) maintained a conservative balance of traction and driftability that is intended for downhill freeriding. The current emphasis is on the ability to grip and hold a line through corners at speed. The slide aspect of these wheels is focused on shaving off speed (in a pragmatic fashion) as well as to begin exploring progressive freeriding.

The Balut is the result of our desire to investigate the other end of the grip-slip spectrum: a freestyle slide wheel that allows for longer drifts and quicker, more numerous rotations with minimal speed loss. This is a first step in a new direction for us, and we’re excited to see where it takes us."


Baluts will be available Thursday, February 2nd at $54.99 per set (MSRP).

Orangatang brings out a new Wheel-The Balut

Here they are. The new wheel. Here is the lowdown.
The Baluts are centerset and symmetrical, allowing for maximum flexibility when rotating and flipping to promote even wear on all four wheels. By using a larger spoked core and removing significant amounts of urethane between the bearing seat and outer edge of the core, we were able to reduce the overall wheel weight for increased agility in slides and freestyle tricks alike.
Dropping the first week of february.

#occupychairlifts

We at Alpine know the weather has not been super rad this winter. but that doesn't mean that you can't get out and do the sport you love. The mountains are doing the best they can to put snow on the ground and keep it. So get out and head to your local resort, and have fun. It's what it's all about.
Matt wants everyone to get out and #occupychairlifts. Have some fun and get outside. We still have 8-10 more weeks of "winter". Who knows what can happen. We can only hope that these wacky storms hitting Alaska and Chicago will soon hit us.

Wishing Sarah Burke a Safe and Speedy Recovery

SALT LAKE CITY - Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke was in a coma after suffering a serious injury while training on a superpipe Tuesday.
Burke, a halfpipe pioneer who lobbied tirelessly to get her sport included in the Winter Olympics, was airlifted from Park City, Utah to a Salt Lake City hospital after crashing at the end of a training run.
Peter Judge, CEO of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association, said sources had told him Burke was in a coma while a spokeswoman at University Hospital in Salt Lake confirmed Burke had been admitted and was being evaluated.
Burke was training with a private group ahead of the Winter X Games when the accident occurred.
"We know that she had landed a trick in the pipe and had landed at the bottom of the pipe and kind of hit on her feet, so she landed, and then bounced onto her feet, head kind of thing," Judge told The Canadian Press. "Apparently from what we heard it didn't look like it was that kind of severe a fall, but obviously she must have just hit in the right way."
