Loaded Boards and Pantheon Longboards brought together years of collective design and manufacturing longboard experience to bring you the Trip Collab, Pantheon's most popular long distance push (LDP) skateboard to date.
This is a small, light, and agile double drop longboard, perfect for long distance pushing and commuting, which is one of Pantheon’s specialties. 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 Mustache rocker profile combines subtle camber at the deck’s midpoint with rocker under the feet while the mellow radial concave provides an ideal balance of edge control and riding comfort.
The Trip Collab’s outline shape was cut to maximize usable surface area and minimize the chance of wheel-bite and the 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.
The graphics were designed by Eddie Kihm (who has worked on many of Pantheon’s board graphics) and 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.
If you’re just starting out, the Trip is our best longboard for beginners, being so low and easy to ride. And it is an integral component to your longboard quiver as a distance skateboarder or for using a longboard for fitness and utilitarian travel.
