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.
Our favorite complete consists of 150mm Paris 150mm trucks in the 50/43 configuration. This puts a high degree turning truck in front, and a slightly lower degree in back for increased stability. 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. Finally, while we prefer the tight fit of a 150mm truck, we are also offering 165mm trucks for riders who have zero tolerance for wheelbite. With the 150mm configuration, riders MAY be able to force wheelbite, depending on bushing choice, riding style, and rider weight. We certainly don’t want anyone getting hurt, but if you’re willing to finagle with your setup a bit and make sure it’s dialed for your needs, we believe the slimmer setup to be superior. Riders will significantly reduce their chances of kicking wheels on accident, and the slimmer setup allows you to land your push foot closer to your center of gravity. This is both more powerful (faster) and more efficient. On the other hand, you’ll definitely want a 165mm truck if you’re riding wider wheels like Orangatang Caguamas, for example. With Speed Vents offered here, the fit is just about perfect with 150mm.
