Pantheon Chase Hiller Pro Model

3 customer reviews



The Chase Hiller Pro model needs little introduction. If you’ve seen Chase ride, you know what this board is capable of. If you haven’t seen Chase ride, you need to go watch Chase ride! Go here –


Length: 36.75″
Width: 9.12″ front bolts, 9.02″ back bolts, 9.44″ max width
Wheelbase: 22.75″ – 23.75″


The concave on the Chase Hiller Pro Model, while it hits quite hard, is designed toe feel very comfortable. There are low points at the front heel and rear toe to offer comfort in the foot pockets, while there is still significant concave in front drops, especially, and in the center of the board to offer stiffness. The front crescent drops offer tons of board feel while generally staying out of your way, and you can right with the outside of your foot up against the drops, or aggressively ride on the front and rear drops, like Chase, where the ball of your foot falls into the crescent as a substantial wedge point for tons of board control. The board is essentially divided into two foot platforms, with a camber in between to separate the front and rear foot, subtly cupping the feet on both sides. There is a mild rear W concave in the rear foot pocket that drops out of the camber in front of the foot, providing maximum W-height at the low point of the foot pocket, but then disappearing before going into the drop, allowing a comfortable space for the rear foot to cross the board without uncomfortable obstruction.


8 ply maple with triaxial fiberglass. We place the glass UNDERNEATH the top and bottom layer of wood for the purpose of comfort for the rider. This deck has a tail, and riders are beating the crap out of it. We don’t want you to get glass in your hands as this board starts to wear; however, we want you to get the benefits of fiberglass in the board, so we cover the outside with maple. Like all Pantheon boards in the current lineup, the entire board is laminated with waterproof resin. While the deck is not entirely waterproof, it is much more weatherproof and warp resistant than many other boards. Downhill stiffness out of the box.


The Chase Hiller Pro is designed for intense skating and a heavy foot hold without killing comfort. The deck really demands a fairly small stance. Combine pressures from the community in asking for this deck in a more classic top-mount shape alongside Chase’s ask for a slightly smaller foot platform from his original pro model. A ton of thought went into this deck as we were looking for a way to both make an aesthetically appealing board, but combining it with the features that Chase really demands in his skating. Chase also wanted a more usable tail for his pro model board, as he was traveling the world and wanted a board he could truly take anywhere and do anything with. Racing, freeride, or cruising around town, the Chase Hiller Pro model deck can handle it all.


The Chase Hiller pro combines best with slim 130-140mm trucks and wide wheels OR 150mm trucks and freeride wheels. Splitting it down the middle is a nice compromise, although easily slapping on some 150mm trucks and just calling it a day is totally acceptable. While the front and rear are both flush mounted, we actually angled the front flush mount 3 degrees. This gives the board some directionality, but it also allowed us to do something else that was very important for the board, which was to keep the deck strong while also getting the mounting holes as close into the drops as possible. You’ve never been able to stand into a drop like this, unless you’re dealing with some super thin material, which we just couldn’t afford on this deck, as Chase is an absolute destroyer of boards, and we want you to be able to ride as hard as he does without worrying about causing failure. So, this angling is something to keep in mind. Whatever truck you put up front will be wedged an additional 3 degrees. Directionality certainly isn’t a bad thing, but if you’re looking for symmetry, you’ll have to offset this angle to bring the front back down. Most riders will appreciate a bit of directionality to this board, because you simply can’t mob as hard going backwards!


Not just a pro model in name only. Pantheon’s pro model decks have a profit share set up to help fuel this pro rider’s dreams. We don’t want to overstate ourselves. We are still a small company selling limited numbers of our pro model decks. But when you ride this pro’s model, you are literally taking part in supporting this skater’s life. Each one counts toward our goal of supporting these skaters we believe in.

Testing the Chaisy

Designing Chase’s new surf-inspired downhill longboard took quite a bit of time, and it was a truly radical shape. Spending all that cash on a mold in a shape so wild–even though we had a really good feeling about it–felt like quite a risk! So the first thing we did was actually machine the shape completely out of a bamboo block. And then we wrapped it in fiberglass and carbon. We’d never seen another company make a downhill longboard in such a way. We even considered masse production with this method, but it proved to be more difficult than expected!

Chase was able to test this shape before we ever had to shell out of a mold, and we were able to make the minor changes necessary to fit it perfectly to his stance and style. Nothing takes the place of rider feedback. Chase rode his prototype for months, taking his board to Colombia, North Carolina, and California.

Chase’s Graphic Inspiration

After receiving his integral feedback from racing and riding his board, we were able to shell out for the mold, produce true production-level prototypes, and get into graphic production. Chase met with our long-time graphic artist, Eddie Kihm, and worked directly with him to come up with something that expressed his love for traveling and skating and felt close to his heart. The final artwork features graphical representations of some of Chase’s favorite places to skate. Hong Kong, South Korea, Romania, Philippines, and Colombia all made the cut. Eddie’s style feels very familiar, while the art is truly uniquely representative of Chase.

A True Pro Model Downhill Longboard for a True Pro

As with Chase Hiller’s CHiller board, the Chaisy is no different. This is a true pro model, and Chase gets a cut. Anyone who knows Chase or knows of Chase, knows that Chase is one of the most deserving riders in the world to be making skateboarding his job. Frankly, as a small company, we’re very lucky to have him. When you’re purchasing one of his pro model downhill longboards, you are not only supporting our company and the wood shop, you are also supporting Chase as a pro downhill skateboarder. It may not be much; but then again, this board is actually dope enough that literally every skateboarder that rides down hills should have one! So make an impact and support this man!

Design Elements that Make the Chaisy Special – A Tactile Experience

There are a few things that we did with the Chaisy design that are truly one-of-a-kind. Riders don’t necessarily have to recognize these features; the board just has to feel good! But we are going to tell you what they are, because they’re cool and unique.

First, we flared the front wheel wells and combined the flare with a crescent drop so that there’s plenty of wheel clearance despite this deck having a 3/8″ micro drop, which is quite rare. Furthermore, we brought in the truck mounting area really tightly into the drop with an angled flush mount to the tune of a positive 3 degrees. This angled flush gives the board some directionality and also uniquely fixes the issue of the deck potentially having a weak spot in this area, because the angled flush actually takes less plies away. We also 3D shaped the wheel wells so that they’re thinnest toward the edges of the board, where the bite would form, and there’s a little more meat near the flush mount. We’ve seen decks break by combining deep flush with deep 2-dimensionally projected wheel wells, and this was our answer to that problem. Chase has absolutely manhandled these boards, and they’re staying strong.

Next, we added a unique mustache rocker design. Because the deck’s platform is quite tight (we’re fitting everything into a 22.75″ wheelbase between two microdrops, after all), it has pretty obvious positions where your feet will go. Separating with a funky camber in the center with microdrops on either side is like sticking your feet into bindings. You are going to be really locked in on this board!

Something that we did that was really interesting with this board that riders may never notice is how we draw the W-concave out of the peak of the camber in the center. The rear foot platform drops down out of the center camber, and as that “bucket’ drops down, the rear W concave forms by keeping the peak height of the camber uniform. The end result is that the W-concave, although clearly formed in the back of the board, seems to sort of appear out of nowhere. Some riders might just say, “cool,” and leave it at that. But for riders pushing mongo-style off the line (rear foot is balance foot), this uniformity in the center is far less awkward than most W-concaves, which can really throw riders off balance at times. So there actually is some functional design element here!

The side rails of the Chaisy look super wild, but not only do they look cool, they also increase concave where it is useful, and decrease concave where it is useful to have lower concave. So your rear toe has a functional drop to push on, a W-concave, and also a flatter rail on the toe side, which all meld together into a platform that keeps your foot really solid and your board under control. This is the same for the front, but opposite. Your front outside of your foot will be locked in on the backside of a curved drop, the inside of your forefoot has plenty of concave for toe side turning leverage, and the heel concave drops down into something a little more mellow and comfortable, so that when you’re making those heel side turns and slides, you’re making full contact with the board and your foot is staying put.

Finally, the whole rear end swoops up into a kicktail. Yes, you have a functional, ollieable kicktail on this race-worthy board. You can travel with this board and race it down a hill, and then putz around in the streets later that night as you’re bar-hopping or doing whatever it is that you do when you’re putzing.

    I have skated every edition of this board since the V1 scoot and I must say that this is by far the best form of it to exist so far! Every feature on this board serves a purpose and keeps you locked in on even the gnarliest roads!

    I currently have this board set up on wide K4s and it feels amazing. Nimble, stable, with tons of control. I’ve always enjoyed Pantheon’s crescent drops and concave, and this board features everything.

    In a tuck, the crescent drop in the back behaves like a torque block, and does a great job locking your feet in; it also gives the board a slightly lowered platform, which is very comfy. The w-concave in the back pairs with the drop to give you lots of handling during standys and speed checks. The width of the board is just right for me (I wear size 11.5 shoes), and the slight taper feels natural. The design is top-notch and you can tell no corner was left untouched!

    There aren’t many negatives about the board, beside a few things. Firstly, I believe the flush mount in the front wedges your trucks by 3 degrees. This would probably be minor for most people, but I’m currently using 46-degree K4s, which automatically makes it more turny in the front. I’ll tweak it some since I personally prefer it to be symmetrical. Just something to note.

    I love that it comes fully-gripped, though I wish it was a bit coarser like how the Nexus comes. I’d imagine with all the curves though, it’d be harder to apply coarser grip tape.

    In the future, I’d love to see a composite build of this board. It’s surprisingly heavy being all wood, but it’d be really neat to see some plys replaced with fiberglass or carbon to lighten it a bit. Regardless, the board is plenty capable of bombing hills and hitting high speeds.

    Also, huge fan of the graphic by Eddie Kihm and the glossy black veneer at the top and bottom; this board looks spectacular in person!
