Current situation on 100mm Kegel wheels? Please update me

Hi guys!
I have recently done with a custom board I made. The purpose was an integrated drop down low ride board.

Currently running 90mm wheels with about 10mm gap. It will be fine but probably nicer with a bit bigger wheels. I don’t want to go for 110mm. I am currently riding them i my other build, but I want something quicker for this deck.
So my question is. Is there something good out there in that range with kegel core? I know of a company that started to make 100mm wheels BOA style but I can not find the name anymore. Or better. Do you think we can convince Orangatang to make the caguamas 100mm version? I just got the blue one and I never felt a softer wheels. Plus they look amazing so would be nice to have a bigger version of it.

Caguamas is 56mm I think. To me can stay like that. Otherwise maneuverability goes down a lot. It’s already pretty wide too me.

TB I didn’t know. @topcloud posted a 100mm version from a new company (the one I refer in the first post) but can not find anymore. Only thing blue caguamas are way softer than TB 110mm. I know they are making a 74A version now.

Labeda have opened a communal mold for 100mm wheels, MOQ is 1000 wheels, some of our members here have already made orders.

This happened ~4 months ago, we should see them pop up really soon. RIP Boa.

like to re-sell?
or a couple sets for themselves?

make the ABEC adapter ahahah. I machining for the next project right now and I wanted to avoid to stop for making the adapter. My DD has the swapable front panel so no problem for that. It’s me the problem :laughing:
Plus up to know kegel gave me a better ride than ABEC but it’s also true that I mainly used Kegel.
Also the new Evolve wheels are doped in the ABEC core type.
