CURVACEOUS CONFIDENCE – Pantheon’s highly functional crescent drop lowers the center 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. Mustache 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.
FUNCTIONAL DESIGN – The Trip Collab’s outline shape is cut to maximize usable surface area and minimize the chance of wheelbite. 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.
STIFF, LIGHT, & DAMP – The Trip Collab enhances Pantheon’s existing Trip model with elements of Loaded’s signature composite construction such as carbon fiber and cork. A 6-ply maple core is sandwiched between layers of triaxial fiberglass with biaxial carbon fiber bottom and cork top sheets. This layup results in a thin, stiff, and lightweight structure with snappy, responsive flex characteristics and improved vibration damping.
GRAPHICS – Designed by Eddie Kihm (who has worked on many of Pantheon’s board graphics) in collaboration with Loaded’s art team. The design explores a whimsical blend of Loaded and Pantheon’s unique aesthetics. The linework represents the roads connecting Loaded in California with Pantheon in Colorado.
