Pantheon - Egg
The Egg is a smaller and thinner full top mount than Pantheon Embryo deck. Made with the same rocker and a tapered concave to correspond to its surfy shape. This deck is designed for people with smaller feet OR riders who like chill cave but with a lot of rail feel. Ideal for freeride and downhill, they kept this deck 9 ply, so it’s stiff enough for any speed you can throw at it.
They designed the concave so that there is a slight bowl in front, and then a clean sweep of concave from the front to back, regardless of the width of the board. So many decks with big tapers offer little to no board feel in the back, as well as greater torsional flex due to lack of concave where the concave gets effectively cut out of the board. Straight radial concaves can help alleviate this, but your foot isn’t in the shape of a straight radius, so why would you want to stand in one?! They took their progressive concave and built it so that the concave relief is linear from front to back, with the deepest part at the heel of the front foot, all while using a non-linear surfboard shape. If that’s as hard to understand as it is to explain, take the Egg, flip it over, and look at the rail. Then flip it back over, point it downhill, and take a rip.
