Pantheon Pranayama FG Longboard Deck£ 175.00
Pantheon Pranayama FG Longboard Deck
The latest Pranayama is reworked for longevity, flex and reliability. The board now has a 6-ply Canadian maple core, encasing either side in triaxial fiberglass. On top of that is a beautiful walnut veneer.
Normally, a veneer is used on a skateboard to add aesthetic appeal. It certainly works, as they can be beautiful! BUT, they can also be useful. Using veneer, they have optimized the use of the fiberglass, because fiberglass strength and stiffness is largely determined by the distance between the two outer layers, or core thickness. Their previous fiberglass boards like the Trip used full-thickness maple veneer on the outside, but they are now able to source veneer that was cost effective enough to make sense out of its use. This allowed Pantheon to put one extra ply in the core and take out an entire maple ply in the deck–reducing weight–without losing any stiffness! The veneer acts as a physical barrier from the outside world to the fiberglass. This allows you to worry less about beating up your board, scraping it on curbs, etc, because in a normal fiberglass construction, the exposed glass would scratch up over time, weakening the glass but also exposing the glass to your fingers. If you’ve ever had fiberglass in your fingers, you know what I’m talking about. It sucks! The benefits of glass, functionally, are there. But the cons are significant. With this method, not only are YOUR hands protected, but the wood worker is also exposed far less to fiberglass as well.
The Pranayama is truly optimized on Paris 149mm trucks and your choice of any color and durometer (softness) of either the 85mm Seismic Speed Vents OR the 85mm Orangatang Caguama wheels. Paris are notoriously high TKP trucks, so if you want a lower setup, you can try a classic Independent 149mm as well, but really, we love the turn on Paris so much that if wanted it to be lower, we would just pick a slightly smaller wheels like the Orangatang 80mm Kegel or the new 80.5mm Seismic Alpha, or put a little drop through riser on the board. We do feel, though, that most will appreciate the stock height and feel of the suggested setups. It is unlikely that it can get any better, but we will pay attention to reviews and our own experiences and modify this section if necessary.

We normally do not deliver to drop-shipping companies or storage/self-storage companies.
Changing delivery address while your order is in transit – if you decide to change the delivery address after the delivery service was confirmed and the information was entered into the system, a redirection will lead to a different delivery time and therefore, a delayed delivery. Note that even if the new address is very close to the initial one, the information still has to be changed and the package re-labelled, which can lead to a change in the delivery date as well. In such cases, it would usually be quicker for the delivery to fail then pick up the order from the local depot in the evening of the due date.
Almost all deliveries will take place as scheduled. However, certain issues may be out of our control resulting in possible delays. Due to this, we advise against taking time off daily routines, such as work, to avoid any issues. An order can be placed to go to a business address if needed. If you are worried about a delivery for any reason or have any queries please contact us on 07807203111, or email us at Gael@newtons-shred.co.uk.
