Pantheon Nexus push and freeride longboard deck

Pantheon is the undisputed king of long distance push. Pantheon founder Jeff Vyain is a push race competitor, won multiple events, he has designed boards for some of the biggest brands and now designs exclusively for Pantheon Longboards. 

What makes Pantheon decks unique is the design. They are designed for you the skater. 

The Pantheon Nexus is a low, stiff double drop longboard made for heavyweights and riders looking for a stable commuter that can handle downhill speeds and sliding. It is Pantheon's stiffest double drop platform, and described as a meeting place between longboard disciplines (LDP - Freeride - Downhill - Cruise). This board makes for an excellent commuter / pusher longboard because of the low, double dropped platform, and it also equally manages sliding and speed with ease due to the low center of gravity and downhill stiffness. 

You should consider the Nexus for several reasons. First, if you’re a new rider, the Nexus offers plenty of foot space, and it will give you ample room to grow into new disciplines. You can start pushing around and gaining balance, and the low platform will make it easy to push and easy to learn how to footbrake. The comfortable concave won’t cramp your feet, but when you turn your foot sideways, your foot will be heavily locked into the board’s signature crescent drops and concave. This, combined with the board’s stiffness, will provide confidence at speed and help when it comes time to learn how to slide. The low platform, again, makes it easier to reach the ground once you are learning hands down slides, and the lower centre of gravity makes slide initiation more gentle and effortless. 

Non-beginners will love the Nexus, too! The versatility that the Nexus provides will reduce limitations on riding conditions. Hills are no match for this baby, and your Nexus will not keep you from taking on any particular terrain. Ups, downs, and flats are all great. Also, if you’re a heavier rider, the Nexus has been tested up to about 145kg with success. There aren’t many, if any, other double drop longboards on the market that you could trust for that. 

We recommend setting up your Nexus with 165mm Paris trucks or something similar. Feel free to couple with large wheels up to 85mm Boa Sigma for maximum cushion, 85mm Speed Vents for maximum speed, or smaller wheels like the 70mm Remember Optimo for freeriding and sliding.

When choosing trucks, mix up baseplate angles to suit your riding. Choose the 50/50 options for maximum agility and turn, 50/43 for directionality and stability, or 43/43 for a stable freeride setup. And prepare to have a lot of fun!
