Pantheon Trip Longboard - Caguama Setup
The Pantheon Trip is back with a sexy new graphic, unique applewood veneer, and a lighter-weight design construction. Pantheon has dropped the top veneer in favour of a lighter weight, and snappier construction and dyed the top fibreglass layer black for a sweet undercover look that screams quality.
The new Trip is as great as ever and will feel very familiar underfoot when compared to past designs. Flex will be nearly identical and only very minor changes were made to the shape for slight aesthetics at the truck interface. The Pantheon Trip remains the best double drop commuter deck built for RKPs on the market.

The Trip’s outline shape is cut to maximize usable surface area and minimize the chance of wheel bite. A slightly tapered waist complements the camber profile for a subtle suspension effect. The open-ended nose and tail provide flexural relief, protection against impact damage, and ease of assembly. Neutral truck mounting angles simplify setup while offering a versatile starting point for customization.
Pantheon’s highly functional crescent drop lowers the centre of gravity and stiffens the drops for efficient pushing while also providing enhanced lateral support and general ergonomics. The drop also allows for effortless slide initiation to control speed in common settings like hilly urban environments or paths and trails. The moustache rocker profile combines subtle camber at the deck’s midpoint with rocker under the feet. The localized camber pairs with the slightly tapered waist to provide suspension characteristics while allowing the rest of the board to remain stiff for optimum control. Mellow radial concave provides an ideal balance of edge control and riding comfort. The junctions between concave and crescent drop create three-dimensional pockets for secure and intuitive ergonomics.
SNAPPY, LIGHT, & LOW
The Trip is a low-riding steeze machine that is efficient and effective for all of your commuting and distance riding needs. A 6-ply maple core is sandwiched between layers of triaxial fibreglass with a protective wood veneer on the bottom so that you don’t scratch that structural composite layer on curbs. This layup results in a thin, stiff, and lightweight structure with snappy, responsive flex characteristics. Combine with large, soft wheels, and you’ve got an absolute cruising machine that will suck up road vibrations and keep you going all day long.
Designed by Eddie Kihm (who has worked on many of Pantheon’s board graphics) in collaboration with Pantheon’s founder, Jeff. The graphic depicts a being surrounded by a field of sunflowers over the top of the being’s head. To the being, it likely hardly sees anything but a thicket of stems. But the being’s oversoul, which is connected to the overarching reality, has a grander view of a field and sunset, capturing the true beauty of the being’s reality. Oftentimes, we are stuck in our respective struggles, caught in each moment. The reality of the beauty of life in all its forms—birth, death, and all ups and downs in between—escapes us in these moments of individual struggle. This graphic is to remind us that it’s all part of a bigger picture.
