Loaded Icarus - Custom Build just for you!
The Loaded Icarus is a true work of art from our friends at Loaded. A bamboo and fiberglass construction is combined with aggressive wheel flares and deep camber. This design is extremely durable, light, and agile for your adventures in the concrete jungle.
This build is about optimizing the use of Orangatangs newest wheel, the 85mm Caguamas. Special attention to clearances needs to be considered with these larger wheels. With that in mind, we landed on using Bear 852s for this build. Bear 852s have a 184mm hanger width, which are 4mm wider than Paris V2s hangers at 180mm. In addition to the extra width, Bears 852s also place the axles slightly outside of Paris V2s on the wheelbase, helping even more with clearance. These geometry benefits make Bear 852s a great choice for any build using larger wheels.
So? What's up with these 85mm Caguamas? More, More, and More is what's up! More urethane depth for an even more cushiness and more vibration absorption. More size to tame more debris, and surface variations. More mass to maintain more momentum on that magic carpet ride. Caguamas have the same contact patch and sticky skin as their smaller sibling, the 80mm Kegel, but the sharp lips have been slightly rounded to make transitioning around town easier.
Rounding out this build are none other than the most celebrated bearings in the business - Your choice of Bones REDs, or Bones Race REDs.
