If you have skated a Pantheon Trip in the past then you are already familiar with it's design. Trimmed waist, slight camber to provide some suspension, while bringing rockered curves right under your feet. Combined with optimized usable standing platform and wheelbite minimizing cuts. Nose and Tail are open ended to relieve flex tension, while also protecting against impacts. Not to mention making it really easy to get your trucks mounted. The forks that are then created give you a great 0 point for the ability to optimize your trucks angles to your desire.
The signature Crescent Drop makes it's return. The drops of this style of deck get you lower to the ground, but Pantheons' Crescent drop also stiffens the drops, enhances lateral support, and gets your feet extra close to the baseplate of your trucks. Giving the rider a greater more controlled board feel.
As with most of the Trips over the years, construction is another factor in each iterations over all feel. Loaded adds it's stamp by taking 6 plies of Maple and putting them at the core. This is sandwiched between layers of triaxial fiberglass, a biaxial carbon fiber bottom, and cork top sheet. Thin, lightweight, stiffish with a responsive flex, and improved vibration dampening.
It wouldn't be a Pantheon deck without some Eddie Kihm art, with the line work representative of the roads and connection between Loaded and Pantheon.
We squealed in delight when we learned of this collaboration, and cried in sorrow that it is a limited edition build. Scoop this while you can.
