The Pantheon Pranayama is a meticulously fitted distance and commuting longboard. The board was designed to fit perfectly with 85mm wheels and street trucks. If you’re focused on the ease of the journey, whether a beginner or advanced rider, the Pranayama will easily get you wherever you’re going with as little effort as possible over just about any distance. No other longboard features this low of a ride height with as big of wheels. Period.

Riders all over the world are consistently telling us that the Pranayama is the most used board in their quiver. Featuring an extremely low ride height, lightweight design, comfortable flex, slim profile, and perfectly fitted components, this longboard stands above all others in ease of use and fit. This board is made for your body, and it’s made for this setup. Large 85mm wheels will roll over just about anything in your path, and slim 149mm trucks create an overall thin profile that allows riders to keep their center of gravity closer to their push foot, resulting in greater balance and power. The lowest of low standing platforms allows for easier foot pushing and effortless foot braking. Beginners and experts alike will benefit from this greater efficiency, and riders will find themselves traveling further on a longboard than they originally thought possible. 

Because the Pranayama is designed specifically around street-style trucks, this board will come alive on the streets in a way that you’ve never felt on a distance longboard. It may take a little getting used to, being so lively, but once you do, it’s a whole lot of fun, and you’ll find yourself outside riding further and longer than ever. While this board makes for an excellent distance commuter/cruiser at low speeds, it was ridden fully stock to a win at the 2019 Beijing Skateboard Marathon–its debut skateboard distance race! 

Please note: do not set this board up RKP-style longboard trucks. The Pranayama is built for street trucks only, and putting the wrong setup on this board will cause wheel bite. If you’re going to put this together yourself, be sure you pay attention to our available options here and set it up very similarly, and you’re assured to have a uniquely awesome riding experience.

    The Pantheon Pranayama is the perfect commuter, full stop. It’s portable, precision-built, and thoughtfully designed. There is zero wasted space on this deck, everything is functional. There are so many features to list.

    -The crescent drops give the feeling of more standing space than the dimensions suggest.
    -Being designed around TKPs gives it the lowest ride on the market.
    -The size and design for precision use with Paris trucks and Speed Vents lead to perfect rail matching and protection from wheelbite/kicking wheels.
    -Fast!
    -Shortened kicks so there’s no real chance of breaking.

    If you’re a distance skater, commuter, or just cruising around town, get this board!

    I started riding a few months ago at 33YO on your usual 43″ bamboo drop-thru, and found myself really enjoying the long distance rides. Got the Prana after doing an obsessive amount of research and talking to people. Even though I’m a little out of shape and old for a new rider, I can still push 20 miles on this thing, and even started taking my dog on rides.

    This thing feels like every detail was designed for a reason as far as curves, flex, height, etc. After about ten minutes, I adjusted to the feeling of being on TKPs, and their lively nature. I was worried about them, but it’s been a complete non-issue even when carving or cruising small hills. I opted for using Street barrel/Short street barrel bushings for the added stability, and that’s been perfect for me at ~200lbs. Still carvy enough to carve on hills and out of the way or debris, but gives a nice stability for long distances and riding while managing a 30-foot leash.

    I’ve let a few people try it and they’ve all had the same happy reaction: “It’s so low!!”. That being said I’ve had no trouble riding it over cracks, branches, root bulges in pavement, etc. It’s been through a New England autumn and had no problem crushing downed branches and pebbles blown across the path and tanking over piles of wet leaves.

    Setup: Pranayama, Paris TKPs, Mango Speed Vents, Riptide pivots, Krank Street barrel/Short street barrel, Zealous bearings, and I swapped the grip for some extra coarse but the stock was perfectly fine.

    Highly recommend!

    Riding the Pranayama is like a dream. It’s effortless to push and rides with a little bit of pop yet also just the right amount of stability.

    I have three boards in my quiver, and this is my go to. Whenever I have an opportunity to go for a ride, the Pranayama just calls to me. There’s nothing else like this board, it’s a must have.

    Coming from the early revisions of the Ember, I knew this was going to be another hit out of the ball park! Boy was I not disappointed. The way the board just works with the standard kingpin trucks and the big wheels DO NOT bite blew me away at first push. Sadly not getting as much time on deck as I have in the past, but this trusty complete is always there for me. If I am looking for a solid platform to push with giant wheels (sticks and squirrels are no match) this is my go to selection from my quiver!!

    Pantheon makes good wood. The artwork is the best in the game too in my humble opinion. These folks deserve all the love and it’s a no wonder they are always sold out. Shops can’t keep these things in stock!

    Not to sound like a broken record of other reviews, but just go ahead and buy this– you won’t regret it! It has very quickly become my go-to deck when I’m looking to feel completely free on four wheels!

    It’s soooooo low for effortless pushing, has a beautiful flex for buttery-smooth carving while still remaining stable at higher speeds, can handle big ol’ wheels like Speedvents & Caguamas with absolutely no bite, the drops are perfect for wedging your feet in, it’s fairly compact and light for easy transportation, and the artwork is dope to top it all off.

    I’d give this thing 10 out of 5 stars if I could; my personal favorite out of all the boards I’ve ridden by a country mile.

    Set-up: (6′, 0″, 150 lbs rider)
    Deck: Pranayama (clearly)
    Trucks: Paris 149mm TKPs w/ stock 93a bushings (May swap the bushings for something with a bit more squish)
    Bearings: Zealous Ceramics
    Wheels: Blue Caguamas, 85mm (with intent to grab me some of those 86mm McFlys once the weather warms up!)

    This is a phenomenal board, i have this board set up with a spliced gullwing sidewinder 2 with 85mm purple caguama’s and i can comfortably ride from one end of my city to the other without any major pain, and the board has the perfect rigidity for me personally, it has become my daily commuter and its amazing, for sure will keep buying from pantheon.

    I received my Pranayama deck 8 days after ordering (in New Zealand!!). That in itself is a minor miracle since nothing arrive here that fast except for diplomatic bags and cruise missiles.
    I built this up with Thunder Hollow Lights 148mm, which sit around 8mm lower than Paris TKPs, 77a Caguamas, thin Liaded shock pads between the baseplate and deck, and wrapped the bottom with clear car vinyl.
    I’ve never ridden TKPs before today. I was a bit nervous when heading out, but honestly it felt so natural with an even flow while also feeling very precise. This deck design just works – ever planned out and no half measures. If I hadn’t had to come home to cook I think I’d still be out there in the dark. There’s ample foot space, and I had no qualms about alternate pushing, which I’m very new to. It was like a dream that I didn’t want to wake up from, and when I did wake I had a semi (you can edit those last 9 words if you choose).
    Thanks Jeff and the team, I’m so buzzed with this board and the way it just works. I’ll be out before work tomorrow morning and maybe commute on it to get there.
