Meticulously Designed Commuter Longboard

Riders all over the world are consistently telling us that the Pranayama is the most used board in their quiver. As a specifically designed commuter longboard, this is a truly utilitarian design. There are no extra frills and no wasted space. Use it to get where you’re going, and use it for fun! Featuring an extremely low ride height, lightweight design, comfortable flex, slim profile, and perfectly fitted components, this longboard stands above all other competing commuter longboards in terms of ease of use and fit. We literally designed the board specifically to fit these parts. We even went so far as to design the wheels from scratch. Combine with large 80-90mm wheels and you will roll over just about anything in your path. Paris 149mm trucks create an overall slim profile that allows riders to keep their push foot closer to their balance foot and center of gravity, resulting in greater balance and power. The lowest of our low standing platforms allows for easier pushing and effortless foot braking. Beginners and experts alike will benefit from this greater efficiency. Riders will find themselves traveling further on a longboard than they originally thought possible. 

Start with the Stock Setup

Because the Pranayama is designed specifically around street-style trucks, this board will come alive on the streets in a way that you’ve never felt on a distance or commuter longboard. It may take a little getting used to, being so lively. Once you do, it’s a whole lot of fun, and you’ll find yourself outside riding further and longer than ever. While this board makes for an excellent distance commuter/cruiser at low speeds, it was ridden fully stock to win the 2019 Beijing Skateboard Marathon–its debut skateboard distance race! What this means is that this board is ready to go the day you open the box. Although riders may find over time that they want to customize bushing setups, we recommend that you try it out stock first and give it a little bit of time to get used to it. Give your body the chance to build a little muscle memory and ankle strength. You will likely find yourself pushing faster and further than ever in just a couple weeks.

One thing of note: We have recently changed the stock setup to include our Pantheon 149mm TKP trucks. These we specially designed for our boards in a way that no other truck really has been before. For starters, you can fit regular sized bushings on this truck! We include it with double barrel bushings, and the board side bushing is what we call a “plug barrel,” which fills the space in the hanger for the kingpin hole and reduces slop. This makes the trucks extra reactive, but one of the great things about our Pantheon TKP is that it reacts very well to bushing adjustments when tightening down the kingpin nut. If it’s too much for you, simply turn the kingpin nut a half turn and see how you like it. Need more? Turn it another half turn!

Pantheon TKP Trucks are so adaptable that we are offering our new 102mm Hoku Wheels with this board. We have found that you can easily ride these trucks with these larger wheels just by tightening down the nut a little bit, and this happens without significantly restricting the truck’s initial turn, meaning you can still have a nice and lively setup. For maximum flexibility with your truck setup, run our 92mm Karma wheels. But if you’re feeling bold and want to steamroll everything in your path, choose our 102mm Hokus!


We are constructing these boards with a trusty 6-ply maple core. Outside of the maple core, we wrap the deck in triaxial fiberglass. This fiberglass makes the board much stronger and more weather resistant. Although not waterproof, the Pranayama will handle the elements all season long. Finally, outside of the fiberglass, we wrap the deck in a slim hardwood veneer. We use the veneer to help protect the board from breaking the fiberglass strands. This gives your commuter longboard further longevity and should give peace of mind when scraping the board on curbs and bumps. Although not indestructible, this board is a tank. Riders should expect a comfortable ride from small children up to adults up to 240 lbs. If you’re heavier than that, please consider our Quest and Nexus decks as even tougher and larger commuter boards!

Setting up Your Own Pranayama Commuter Longboard

Do you have 149mm street trucks and large wheels? Well, then you can probably use those parts to set this deck up yourself. Just make sure of a couple things:

  • Use either 1-inch or 1 1/8-inch panhead style hardware
  • Use “drop-through” washers. These should have an ID of about 7/32″ and an OD of close to 1/2.” This will keep you from over-tightening your bolts.
  • Make sure that you use TKP / Street-style trucks! RKP trucks will bite because of their axle placement
  • You’ll want a 70mm wheel as your absolute minimum diameter. Typically we go for our 92mm wheels, as your commuter longboard benefits from large wheels!
  • You MAY be able to go with a larger wheel, but you also may have to adjust the kingpin nut or compensate with aftermarket bushings to make it fit.

    Great board looks great and rides even better

    Perfect out of the box. I’ve put just over 100 miles on this board so far and it’s a dream to ride. Wish that I’d bought a pranayama first because my other boards are just collecting dust at this point. Major thanks to Jeff and the Pantheon team!

  3. Cris R. (verified owner)

    Got this board at age 37 for commuting and a little bit of fun. I have skateboarded as a teen. This board does everything that was promised, smooth rolling, compact size, quality bearings. Packed dirt with gravel, not an issue. On bike paths, this thing rolls forever. The only problem you will have is catching too much speed, shoes are going to need resoling soon. High quality product all around.

  4. Jeni (verified owner)

    Lives up to the hype. All my other boards are collecting dust. Stable, fast, and incredibly smooth. I’m so grateful this board exists. It’s hard to imagine a better cruiser setup.

    I’ve been ridden my new – to – me Pranayama (Paris raw trucks and 88 McFly wheels) for about 100 miles now and I really, really love it. Never thought, it would be that good! Coming from a Loaded Dervish Sama, the Pranayama felt almost too lively first, but the low platform conveys a great sense of security. Mile after mile I felt more at home on the board and learned to appreciate the superb maneuverability and effortless gliding. Now, after a few minutes of riding, it feels like the board disappears under my feet and I just ride. Breathe and ride and carve with great joy and ease. With every mile, I love this beautiful board more! Riding it feels so intuitive and easy – fantastic! And after the ride it really is a joy to the eye!

    The board is beautifully made. I know I have something nice. I have seven other name brand boards and can say honestly that the pantheon sticks out as a long distance killer. It handles well and really is fast as anything I’ve been on.

  7. Sean Goubert (verified owner)

    So I own quite a few different boards and this is my first from pantheon. The graphics on the bottom look amazing and even rides so smooth! I’ve only gotten to take it out a couple times due to rainy weather but crushed a 20 mile skate on it the other day and I couldn’t be any happier with this thing. I normally try to switch what board I skate but I definitely see myself grabbing this thing first every time now! Will definitely be getting another pantheon board in the future.

    the prana delivers.
    I am snowboarding nerd for over 20 years and never really tried skating until recently. moving from an old pintail to the pranayama was an eye opening experience. I was right at home being so low to the ground. The crescent drops and horizontal rocker on the deck locks me in while ripping some decently hard turns. Stability is not a concern at reasonably fast speeds. I took this down some sustained medium sized hills and did not feel
    Switching between pushing regular or mongo is a breeze. Foot breaking was tricky to learn so high off the ground on the old pintail – the prana would have saved me a few tumbles on the asphalt had I learned on it. It’s so easy to stay balanced and get a foot down or drag a toe to shave off a little speed. The 85mm speed vent wheels roll over everything and keep me going for an impressive distance between push. I always thought skateboard commuting wasn’t a serious viable option. Not so here, covering long distances quickly requires minimal effort. I will run the dog for 2 or 3 miles and not break a sweat.

    If someone is coming from a snowboard background and looking for that low, locked-in feeling on the streets, the pranayama is pretty translatable compared to the few other types of longboards I’ve tried. getting low into carves is a blast and the stability brings a lot of confidence at speed. The attention to detail in the construction really makes the experience a cut above.

    I love how low the pranayama is. It shines so well on how easy it is to push. The TKP truck make the pranayama very agile on turns. The board flexes just enough but doesn’t bottom for me. I weight 240#. The mclfies fly. This is a great commuter longboard that is agile to avoid obstacles.

  11. Brian (verified owner)

    I can’t believe I waited so long to purchase one! I absolutely love this board. I’ve put over 200 miles on it this month. it’s buttery smooth and sexy as hell!!!

  12. Scout (verified owner)

    After taking a long (~10ish years?) break from longboarding due to Life, I decided to get a new board for my commutes to and from work, and for getting around town. Did some research on commuter decks and this one came highly recommended. After a couple neophyte questions that were very helpfully and patiently fielded by Jeff, I decided to pull the trigger on one and I couldn’t be happier.

    It’s compact without feeling restrictive, small enough to take on and off buses or into grocery stores without being a burden. It’s definitely lively compared to the longboards of my past and that is taking some getting used to, but I can already tell that once I develop the muscle memory to command it that liveliness will be helpful in navigating the city.

    Great board, helpful and responsive company that I can tell is passionate about what they do. Couldn’t ask for more. Thanks guys!

    I own the Pranayama now for 2 weeks. Time for a summary which might interest you.

    First of all, I received it from Just Passin’ Thru in Ulmen, Germany. Here in Switzerland it wasn’t available anywhere. But the board was delivered in less than a week!

    About me, I have to say that I haven’t been on a longboard for 12-13 years. And I’m now 50 years old.

    For the last 14 days I’ve been on the board every day. I only need to look at the Pranayama (which is not difficult, since it stays in my hallway) and I feel like pushing. The deck is a real beauty, I can’t put it any other way. I also noticed that the McFlys work great with the deck design. The turquoise swaths that swirl around the Yogi blend beautifully with the wheels once they’re runned in and roughened a bit. I’m aware that the Speedvents in mint would probably have the same effect. But at the moment there’s no reason to think about a change. Because the wheels really work great. I’m absolutely satisfied with the McFlys. The entire board was out of the box ready to push! Everything was right, everything was tight, everything was going smooth. I really have to give Just Passin’ Thru a lot of credit for that!

    This board is truly like a “flying carpet” as I saw it described somewhere. It’s an almost magical thing. Amazing how fast it picks up speed. Almost a little scary at times. To my own surprise, I was able to notice on roads that I walked along forever, that they obviously have a slight incline, because the longboard accelerates without any input from me. Previously, I had never noticed that. Anyway, the Pranayama rolls effortlessly. Not only does it roll over all kinds of bumps, it just rolls and rolls and rolls. I really don’t have to do too much. Of course, I’m basically a beginner, and an old bag as well. I’m still practicing and for the most part I’m going relatively slowly. However, I like to push to speed from time to time, because it’s just fun. I’m relatively cautious though, because my footbraking skills are still in need of improvement.

    Anyway, I’m seriously convinced I couldn’t have picked a better board to get back into longboarding. The whole thing was preceded by a lot of thought and research. The choice for this board didn’t happen by chance. At some point it was clear that it should be a drop through/double drop, as low to the ground as possible board. That’s when I came across Pantheon. Their Trip and Pranayama models were immediately in my focus. Finally the decision has been made, but I couldn’t find any Pranayama in Switzerland. So I finally came across the Just Passin’ Thru store.

    I think the choice of a double drop board was only too logical. And the two I mentioned – Trip and Pranayama – are currently the most extraordinary of their kind on the global market. In the end, I chose the Pranayama simply because it’s a bit lower in comparison. I know this sounds ridiculous. But in my eyes the differences between Trip and Prana are really minimal, almost negligible. Except for the trucks. But as a newbie, I can’t seriously comment on them. I know the differences between RKP’s and TKP’s in theory, but can’t say anything about the feel of it for lack of personal experience. A slight fear, after I had decided for the Pranayama with the street trucks was the possible lack of stability. So far however, I cannot confirm anything in this regard. Thanks to the double drop it seems that so much stability is guaranteed that it hardly makes a difference.

    The only thing that caught my eye initially was that it did seem a bit higher than expected (about 6.5 cm) when I freshly unpacked the board. I just knew it from pictures and videos circulating online. Somehow it always seemed lower to me than in reality. But it could be that my impression was wrong because of camera angle or whatever. But this impression has changed somewhat anyway. And sure, in the future it would be possible to switch to Thunder Hollow Lights, Ace AF-1 or Indy trucks, for example. All three are significantly less high than the Paris Trucks and would lower the board quite a bit. But maybe wheels like the Seismic Tailwinds in 83mm or others in 80mm (like the Seismic Alphas or Orangatang Kegels) would fit even better for this purpose.

    Anyway, all this is not really an issue at the moment. Possibly someday? But in the meantime, I don’t want to change anything on the board. The Pranayama is absolutely perfect as it is! The whole board as a complete is simply outstanding and impressive. I’m really happy with it. The Pranayama is simply flawless! I really couldn’t have asked for a better longboard. Seriously, I love this board! Actually, the Pranayama is remarkably beginner-friendly, while at the same time suitable for advanced LDP pushers. Either way, an absolutely perfect board, as I mentioned!

    Please excuse my english! I hope for your indulgence with me. In the end, I have to give Pantheon a big thumbs up! I liked the company with its grassroots origins from the beginning. And I’m sure it won’t remain my last board from them!…

    As a beginner with only 2 years of longboarding/skateboarding under my belt, I was pretty excited to see how the Pranayama would go. I commute to work 1-2 days/week, 8miles each way. Previously I would use my Landyachts switchblade (dbl drop board) and had gotten my time down to 1hr 4minutes. After only 1 month on the Pranayama I beat my goal of under 1hr, to 54minutes! This board rocks, smooths out rough asphalt and rolls over everything. I highly recommend!

    this board ruined every other longboard for me. Nothing compromises the quality of the ride, it’s comfortable, fast, good at slow speeds, the deck is compact enough to fit within the space of a slightly large skateboard, and the massive radial drop provides fantastic grip for your feet. I live in a country build for bicycles and i can use this longboard instead. I find myself outspeeding most casual cyclists, and the 85mm caguama’s it came with can handle the ancient ass cobblestone roads that are somehow still in my city as if it was a formula 1 track. The deck hangs so incredibly low that once you get used to not having to bend your knee as far, pushing becomes incredibly more comfortable. It straight up takes less energy to go somewhere on this board, and so you can travel farther. It’s absolutely glorious. The one note is that i wish there were a better way to pick the board of the ground. There’s no kicktail to pop it up quickly. this means i have to bend down every time i want to pick up my board, while my other cruisers let me quickly pop it up with the kicktail. That being said, with how comfortable it rides it’s hard to argue that this is the best commuter board on the market.

    I contemplated buying this board for far too long because I felt it was expensive. That was a mistake. I could have been riding this board a long time ago instead of buying other boards I own but do not use. Wheel bite is impossible. The wheels absorb all the vibration on the road. It’s very speedy and very quiet. The concave holds my feet in place but do not cause my feet to cramp. The deck sits so low to the ground that I’m actually learning how to push with my other foot because I feel like I have more balance and confidence.

    Thanks so much to Jeff for his care and attention in helping us choose our boards. My wife and I each got one (Trip and Prana) for commuting in London. The whole process was effortless. Emails, orders, delivery…well done Pantheon. The boards arrived on time and in perfect condition.

    Quality of the boards is excellent. Prana and Trip live up to all the accolades. We are very glad we ordered straight from Pantheon USA — we received timely, thoughtful, and knowledgeable advice from Jeff and extra peace of mind that the setups would be as expected. As two long-time professionals, we can definitely say our Pantheon experience ticks the three “A”s of a good business – Ability, Availability, and Affability. Highly recommend.

    Perfect board. Very easy to push, steer with one foot and foot break. Rolls forever, over everything I need it to. It’s been a game changer for me. I’m riding twice as far as I used to. Worth every penny.

  19. Stefan Gougherty (verified owner)

    I saw a guy skating with this board barefoot, and that sold me! I’ve owned this board for around a year now and have never ridden anything so efficient and smooth! I used to prefer riding my electric longboard, but this Pranayama is so fun and efficient my e-board is now collecting dust! LOVE THIS BOARD SO MUCH!!!!! Brilliant design 🙂

  20. Nicholas (verified owner)

    It’s just… perfect. I spent a ton of time researching boards, and I knew I’d eventually want the pranayama — I’m so glad I got it. It’s the most beautiful, well-made, fun thing to ride!

  21. Mark Jayawant (verified owner)

    So, as long-boarders who live in London, we love our Trip and Prana so much that we decided to buy two more for our home in Florida. Thanks so much to Jeff again, because this time, he suggested mixing it up with slightly different set ups: Prana with 102 Hoku, and Trip with 150-50-92 Karmas front and rear. Love them all! My wife and I are once again very impressed with Pantheon, and Jeff’s personal touch and expertise. We hope to continue to grow in our skills, and we will continue to look to Pantheon.

    Congratulations, Jeff, on your excellent products — including the Karma and Hoku wheels — and on running the company with a heart that all businesses should emulate. Highly recommend Pantheon Longboards.
