Description

The 2020 Pantheon Quest is here! (almost…)

FIRST THING’S FIRST. THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. We are expecting these boards in the first week of June. They are paid for and currently being shipped to Pantheon HQ here in Colorado. We have sold through our Paris 165mm trucks on hand. We have more trucks due end of June and expect to ship additional completes out immediately after their receipt here. So if you’re purchasing before June 5th or so, understand that this is a pre-order and you are securing a spot in line. We will fulfill orders as first come, first served. We truly appreciate your business! Times have been crazy these past few months, and we are thankful to still be here creating performance oriented products with heart. Thanks for believe in us, supporting our company and brand, and we are stoked to get you riding on a Pantheon! We are fully stocked up on wheels. If you don’t want to wait for the trucks to arrive here, we suggest setting it up with 150mm and Seismic wheels, or ordering the deck only and ordering components from another local or online skate shop.

The Quest to Never, Ever Stop Pushing

The Pantheon Quest is the little sister to the Nexus deck. While they are both designed out of the same mold, the boards have been designed to accentuate different features of the mold to highlight different riding styles. Essentially, the Quest is a longer version of the Trip, but it has a bit more concave for more board feel, and the concave increase reduces the flex a little bit over the 2-inch longer platform (when compared to the Trip). If you are looking for a pure pusher but want more space than the Trip offers, the Quest is an excellent choice.

Deciding between the Trip and Quest shouldn’t be too tough, as the amount of foot platform on the Quest is longer, but it comes at the expense of 4 total inches in length. If you want the smaller, more agile board, get the Trip, and if you want the stability of a longer platform or just more space to spread out, get the Quest! But deciding between the Nexus and the Quest may be a little tougher, and this essentially comes down the purpose. The Quest is designed to fit with 150mm trucks and offset wheels, and when you combine a large wheel like the Speed Vent, the outside of the wheels line up perfectly with the 9.25-inch wide deck–just like the Trip! It’s a slim, ergonomic pusher design that makes sense and performs at a super high level.

The Nexus, on the other hand, is designed to work with 165mm trucks and offset wheels. And while the Quest is designed to flex under your push, the Nexus is not. So the question of intent is what we are evaluating. While the Quest is stable at speed, the flex will provide less control when in turns at higher speeds. If you plan to ride a lot of hills, get the Nexus, and if you want a solid board for the flats and straight ups and downs on bike paths, for example, get the Quest.

What’s New on Our Updated Quest Longboard

· Lower Platform! – Features a big 1-inch crescent drop with a quarter in rocker in the platform! It is lower for easier distance pushing and more confidence inspiring sliding
· More Durable Construction – We created this deck with 7 plies of maple and 2 layers of triaxial fiberglass to increase rigidity along the length and across the deck. Additionally, this deck will be more resistant to warping and neck failure. 
· More Wheel Clearance! – We’ve been honing this over time to get it just right. You can now run thinner trucks with larger wheels on the Quest when compares to previous models

New Maple and Fiberglass Construction!

The 2020 Quest has been revamped with an entirely new construction. We tested various construction options over the course of a year, and after riding many miles on several different potential builds, we decided on what we felt was the best possible construction that combines performance, aesthetic, and cost effectiveness. Whereas many fiberglass builds will put the glass on the outermost layer, we put the fiberglass underneath the top and bottom layers of maple. After years of experience with various fiberglass boards, not only do I believe the wood to be of superior aesthetic, but having it on the outside will protect your hands from fiberglass splinters (which are HORRIBLE, by the way) as the deck wears down and takes scrapes on curbs or large speed bumps. We have had extreme success with these boards and are excited to offer the traditional wood aesthetic with the performance benefits of composite fiberglass. Topped off with included 80-grit laser cut griptape, and this deck is ready to crush all the miles right out of the box!

Best Setups for the 2020 Quest

The Quest has been redesigned for more versatility in setup selection than ever. The wheel clearance has been enhanced from previous models, being cut JUST thin enough to comfortably fit 150mm Paris V3 trucks and 85mm Seismic Speed Vents. The overall setup, in this sense, is extremely similar to our Double Drop Trip longboard deck, as both decks are 9.25-inches wide and are designed and truly optimized with this wheel and truck combo, which matches the width of the rail perfectly and helps riders keep from kicking the wheels. We also offer this deck with 165mm Paris trucks and 85mm Orangatang Caguamas, which are wider and grippier and will make for an excellent carving setup that also feels amazing to push!

Overall, we recommend these two setups over any other, and they are the only setups we offer here on the Pantheon website. The large wheels and slim setups will roll over anything and provide for an excellent commute and distance skating experience. Expect to hear great things from other riders about this board, and soon you may find yourself raving to your friends, too!

  1. Joel

    An absolute pleasure to cruise around town with. I have my Quest paired up with some Paris 150s and 70mm Stims — really enjoying this setup so far! The board has just the right amount of flex for me at 175lbs. It’s a very stable board but not clumbsy by any means and ton of fun to carve turns with. Highly recommended!

  2. Garrett

    I’m in love. This is my favorite longboard.
    Using Paris 150 RKPs and 85mm Seismic Speed Vents. Per Jeff’s suggestion, using some Riptide APS Canon bushings. No wheel bite at all. I’m 5’9, 210, size 13 feet and the slight flex is just perfect. The wheels are flush with the side of the deck so there is absolutely no chance of kicking a wheel. Fantastic for long distance pushing. Very low down and probably the only setup that I’ve ever had ergonomically correct technique on. It is SO easy to push. Even pushing into some crazy wind off of Lake Michigan that would have killed me on any other board, this setup still had me going and wanting to push further. I highly recommend the Speed Vents. I’ve done about 40 miles this week alone.
    It’s the perfect length. Unlike with the Ember, where my back foot sometimes comes back down on top of the back truck after pushing, that’s nearly impossible to do on this deck. Even though it’s only 36″ long it basically has the longest actual foot platform I’ve ever used. Even with Speed Vents it is light enough to carry around.
    I know everyone is talking about the Ember and Trip these days, but this is my all around #1 deck.

    Superb board for getting used to skating. Nowhere this bad boy cant take you

  4. John McKay (verified owner)

    Put 20 miles on it the first day it arrived! After pushing my Ember for months I wanted something a little bigger for long trips and the Quest so far is perfect. At 172lbs there’s just enough flex to give a smooth ride but stable enough for small hills. With Paris 150mm hangars and Seismic blast waves kicking wheels is a thing of the past! The concave is subtle but there in the right places when you need it. The extra foot room and slim design really make this a deck for the long haul! The Quest will be coming with me for the Ultraskate this coming January!
