Set up as a jack-of-all=trades distance, push, carve and a bit of downhill freeride.
Paris 150 matt black 50 degree trucks, look amazing on this deck. They match perfectly with the Seismic 85mm Speed Vents. Zealous bearings finish off a complete that will make you want to skate everyday.
The trucks will be playful and responsive. The thinner deck is a bit lighter and with the right bushing combination it will come alive under your feet. After a few hours, you will lose yourself and start enjoying where you are and not where you are going.
The Seismic wheels are expensive but worth it. They are light for a big wheel, the thinner profile allows you to use the 150mm trucks. When Pantheon designed this deck, it was with Paris 150s and Seismic Speed Vents in mind. Larger wheels roll over any imperfections in your path - cracks, bumps, sticks and small marsupials. One push on a roll seems to last forever, start pumping and your feet never touch the ground!
The Pantheon Quest is a highly capable distance longboard with a standard sized platform and concave profile that will handle virtually all terrain effectively. Consider the Quest a sort of jack-of-all-trades distance board. Uphills, downhills, high speeds and cruising will all be comfortable on this thing. The deck feels ergonomic for efficient pushing, with larger cutouts that support a 150mm truck and large 85mm wheels.
The Quest is still beefy. It will manage heavy riders up to and above 115kg (has been tested up to 140kg with success), while still providing a light dampening flex for riders down to about 68kg. The unidirectional shape of the Quest subconsciously pushes you forward, and its low, long, fairly stiff platform adds stability at speed compared to other Pantheon pushers like the Trip and Pranayama. It is slightly longer than the Nexus overall, but only because of the closed off nose and tail truck mounting area. Otherwise, the Quest has a 1-inch shorter wheelbase, and this actually translates into being able to stand slightly closer to the trucks and to reduce the amount of foot pressure you’ll be putting into the drops, which makes this a less aggressive board. The Nexus is stiffer and wider than the Quest and really should be considered for riders who intend on using the Nexus for sliding, where you’ll be actively using the drops to push the board around and control slides, as opposed to the drops simply just lowering the platform for easy pushing, foot braking, and added stability, like they do here on the Quest.
We can swap out the matt black 150 trucks for polished 150s in a split degrees (50 and 43). Putting a 43 degree truck at the back with make this board more stable at speed but less fun carving and pushing around. If your purpose is more downhill, check out the Nexus, that might be better complete. If you want this complete customised, send us an email with the changes you want.
One final note: the graphic on this deck is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice, it is a work of art and something you will hang on your wall when you have finished skating it...which might be never!
