The Pantheon Trip has been a staple in the Pantheon lineup since 2015. Every year, it gets just a little bit better. This year, you can count on your Trip to be lighter and a touch snappier, due to the reduced weight by cutting out the top layer of veneer or cork (depending on which model you’re referring to) and substituting for black dyed fiberglass. This deck feels better than ever with no wasted space or material. The bottom features an applewood veneer which is both stunningly beautiful and also acts as a protective layer for the fiberglass underneath. This way, if you bottom out on a curb, you are retaining structural integrity.

Picking a Complete

Our favorite complete consists of 150mm Paris trucks in the 50/43 configuration and our 92mm Karma wheels. This puts a high degree turning truck in front, and a slightly lower degree in back for increased stability, and it does so pretty much bite free. You MAY be able to force static bite (depending on bushing setup and weight) but it would be extremely difficult to get wheelbite going any faster than 5mph. This is ideal if you’re going to be riding your Trip fast and especially on hills. For lower speeds and a smaller turning radius, choose the 50/50 options. 150s are also a great in combination with 85mm Seismic Speed Vents. We are also offering 165mm trucks for riders who want to fit larger and wider wheels like the 90mm Megawatts from Seismic or 85mm Orangatang Caguamas, and for riders with absolutely zero tolerance for wheelbite. Riders will significantly reduce their chances of kicking wheels on accident with the slimmer setup, as it allows you to land your push foot closer to your center of gravity. We believe this to be both more powerful (faster) and more efficient, but the larger trucks will allow you to set up with softer bushings for even deeper carves. And some riders may go with the wider trucks to opt for the smoother ride of a wider contact patch wheel. Just don’t go picking those 90mm Megawatts with 150mm trucks, k?!

A Note on Bushings:

Bushings and washers make a big difference in how a truck performs. These boards are designed to ride with the suggested setups and stock bushings, but you can even further enhance and personalize your setup with aftermarket bushings. What’s important to note about Paris trucks and our Trip deck as a combination is that this deck is designed to fit closely with your wheels. Tight like a sports car! But this means you need your “suspension” to be tuned properly. We suggest keeping the stock cupped washer in the “board side” position. Further, we suggest going with double barrel bushings in a full 1″ diameter. Current examples of bushings with a 1″ diameter are Seismic bushings (choose 0.6″ height bushings for Paris trucks), Orangatang Nipples, and Riptide Cannons. Full 1″ diameter bushings fill the bushing seat of the Paris truck even better than the stock bushings. The end result is that you can run a softer-than-stock bushing that will provide a super fluid turn but will limit the last bit of articulation on the truck that can cause wheelbite. What you want to specifically stay away from are undersized bushings and flat washers (board side) that will allow the bushing to slip around and cause extra articulation. Do this at your own risk.

Lastly, when we send these decks out as a complete, we ditch one of the “speed rings” but include ONE speed ring on the inside of the bearing between the bearings and the truck hanger. This essentially adds 1mm on either side of the 150mm hanger and does make a difference when you’re running looser trucks. If you assemble this deck yourself, it’s something to keep in mind. This isn’t absolutely necessary for every rider, but these small details can make a difference in your ride experience!

 

Note about shipping: We usually ship next day but we cannot guarantee this. Sometimes when we run sales (rarely) we can get set back a little bit. When you choose your shipping time, it will be the time that it takes once your board is picked up by the shipper, not from the day you order. Generally, add one day, but sometimes it may be a little more. Your deck will be assembled by the owner/designer of these boards to an absolute top standard. We do not let subpar product out the door, but this comes at a cost of time on occasion. We will do our best to get your order out ASAP!

    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.

    I think this Trip is my fifth. The first three were pre-fiberglass, and the last one is with a friend. As always, the Trip is a super comfortable, almost perfect little pushing deck, and this one is a beauty, with my favorite graphics ever. The Supersonic is better for pumping and accommodates more different setups, but the Trip is a little smaller and lighter, more maneuverable on hills and sidewalk corners, and (imo) a lot prettier. My one desire for a small improvement would be more factory-drilled holes (like on the Nexus). I usually try different setups like RKP in front and TKP in back at some point and wind up drilling imperfect holes myself. Maybe with all the distance boards in the lineup, the Trip and Prana could become one board, if the hole position is the only real difference. I would also like to comment on the great service I got from Jeff. I ordered the Trip with Paris 150s and Seismic Tailwinds, which, it turns out, is not a good combination because of wheelbite. Jeff caught my ordering mistake, called me on the phone, and told me about the options in detail, and I switched my wheel choice to the Karmas. I really appreciate the attention to each order and the chance to learn a bit more about optimizing my setup.

    So, as long-boarders who live in London, my wife and I 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.

    Thanks again to Jeff and his excellent recommendations for latest setups. We have a Prana and a Trip we use in London, and we wanted the same for our place in Florida. This time Jeff recommended going with the 102 Hokus on the Prana and for the Trip: 92mm Karmas 150 50 deg. Paris trucks front and back, just for fun and a little variety. We’ve had a lot of fun on these new boards. Thanks, Jeff for taking the time to think about our setups. Highly recommend Pantheon!
