Our project with Vans is finally available worldwide. The shoes represent Odyssey old and new, and just in time to help celebrate our 30 year anniversary. Enjoy this video featuring Gary Young, Sean Sexton, Jacob Cable and Travis Hughes, then head HERE to swoop up the Vans X Odyssey shoes.
On a related note, DIG has a nice feature on the project as well. Check it out!
We dropped this about a year ago. Worthy of re-watching for sure!
Matt Nordstrom lays down some moves for the people in the latest Instagram Slam on TCU. Check it out.
Jacob and Travis fired out this welcome edit very quickly, worthy of re-watching for sure. Originally posted in May 2014.
Remember that time that MIKE AITKEN and TOM DUGAN hopped in a Trans AM and traveled through Idaho and Montana in 2011?

In case you missed it, here is our most recent Stampy fork test video.
As part of our mission to make the best BMX forks possible, we continue to refine the 41-Thermal® process at all stages of manufacturing. Each step in the process is held under strict scrutiny, and we continue to examine the strength and fatigue testing methods used to evaluate our designs.
In the previous round of Stampy fork tests we blew the industry standard EN tests for bicycle forks out of the water, and yet we still couldn’t break our own fork. In fact, we had to give up after running the fork for 2,000,000 cycles and with the machine operating at its ultimate limit.
So, in order to push the tests and our forks even harder we created an updated rig design that would let us supply much more force than the last time around. With this test we doubled up the cylinders that are applying the load and ramped the force up by 25%, going from 4000 Newtons to 5000 Newtons. That’s just over half a ton! (1124 lbf per cycle). Even so, at half a million cycles we started to wonder how long our forks were going to last, and since our competitor’s forks had already been taken to failure, we decided to ramp up the load on our forks to 6000 Newtons (1349 lbf), 50% higher than the previous tests, and after over 650,000 cycles, we were finally able to break them.
It is important to note that the 41-Thermal forks not only outperformed every other model that we tested by a huge margin, but that they did so while being lighter than most of the other forks too. This is direct evidence that proper design, engineering and manufacturing are much more important factors than simply always making the part heavier in hopes of making it stronger….
