Pantheon Bandito Joe Mazzone Bracket complete longboard. This can be shipped in parts or assembled at no extra cost ready to skate straight out of the box.
We have used the Pantheon recommended base set up. This is what pantheon say about this complete:
We have tested this setup and feel that it is an extremely fun board and will definitely save you a couple of hundred bucks at least with getting started. You can bring the down the 43 degree Paris an additional 15 degrees and run it as a 28-degree truck with the front around 55-60 degrees, and you’ve got yourself a super fun board that is stable in the straights, pushes like a champ and pumps quite efficiently. It is not the top performer, but it makes for a super fun pump/push hybrid setup that doesn’t break the bank.
The set up is:
G-bomb glass drop brackets, Paris 150 trucks in 43 and 50 degree, Zealous bearings, and 88 McFlys 86mm 76a LDP wheels.
This is a super fun set up. Suit anyone wanting to take the next step up in their skateboard pumping. Would also suit anyone getting into LDP for the first time.
About the Deck
The Joe Mazzone Bracket board is a minimalist take on the bracket platform longboard deck.
Set this board up with G-Bomb brackets for ultimate distance performance. If you’re looking to up your distance game to a competitive level, a distance platform made for brackets is the way to do it. Everyone’s needs will be different here. The beauty behind the bracket-style longboard setup is that there is flexibility to fit those needs because every piece of the setup is modular. The Mazzone Pro platform is designed specifically for the needs of the world’s best ultra-skater. It’s just long enough for him to fit his feet end to end for switching his pushing leg, just wide enough to give him the leverage he needs for pumping while retaining a slim overall setup for pushing efficiency. This is the board that Joe used to set the world 24-hour record at the 2021 Miami Ultraskate.
Some people will surely find this board to be quite little, and it is. It is an absolute minimalist setup, with the intention of creating a board that is fully functional and also travels well. The platform itself is only 23.33 inches long. All you have to do is take the brackets off and shove them in a suitcase. Being so small, Pantheon knew it was important to provide solid reference points so that riders like you can feel the most important parts of the deck and know where you are at all times. This is where Pantheon Mazzone platform sets itself apart from all others before it.
The Mazzone platform deck combines very comfortable nearly flat-concave through the body with harsh flares right at the very front of the “wings” of the board. These flares act as a natural footstop, and while they’re quite intense, they’re only at the very end of the deck, so the side of your foot curls up into them, and that’s where your foot stops. It’s all very ergonomic and definitely not an intrusive concave. The shape of the deck is cut in such a way your bracket will curl up right in front of the notched mounting area, and then the wings curl up on either side, and you get a full stopping point for your foot right at the front of the deck, which is where you want to ride this thing. Pantheon made sure to give you every bit of space you would need right at the front so you can get maximum power and speed.
This deck was designed around the G-Bomb Glass Drop brackets. The glass brackets are light and super strong. You can read about brackets on G-Bomb website here

Zealous classic bearings for the win! No bearing out performs Zealous. Designed for longboarders by longboarders.
