Odyssey X Kali Protectives Helmet
Posted by Nuno on Aug 19, 2016

ODSY_Kali_Helmet_Flyer (1)

At Odyssey we have always looked for ways to improve the parts that we use. Better parts can make your riding more enjoyable and allow you to ride longer, and the same thing can be said for the equipment that’s not directly bolted to your bike. It goes without saying that wearing a helmet is almost always a good decision, whether it’s because a skatepark demands it, or just because you’ve realized that being sidelined with an injury is not worth the time and hassle. After 30 years in BMX we’ve seen what can happen when people aren’t wearing safety gear, and because of this we’re always thinking of new ways to reduce the possible chance of injuries. Whenever we’ve discussed helmets in the past we were often discouraged to see so many people wearing designs that are little more than basic hard hats; meaning that they provide all the fit-related inconvenience of a helmet while providing only minimal protection against actual injuries.

Developing our own helmet from scratch seemed like a big undertaking for us as a component-driven company, so we began talking directly with helmet manufacturers. Our experience has shown us that most of the stock helmets out there are very basic and traditional, and for the most part they have only embraced some minor technical advancements during the last 20 years. As our research continued we quickly discovered Kali Protectives, a brand that has a passion for technical advancement that’s a lot like our own. Kali’s R&D team are constantly looking at what they can do to make helmets safer, thinner and more comfortable. The more we learned, the more we liked, so went to talk to them and soon found that we were both on a similar wavelength when it came to focusing on the helmet’s safety, fit and durability. As a result of this meeting, we are very pleased to offer Kali’s proven and cutting edge technology in our new VIVA collaboration helmet.

THE TECH:

Kali’s patented Composite Fusion Three technology molds the shock-absorbing foam layer directly into the hard outer shell. This means that the shell and the foam work together as a uniform composite structure rather than as two separate elements. This makes for a more efficient construction, so the bulkiness of the helmet can be reduced, while the amount of protection offered by the design increases.

The result of this technology is that Kali can make helmets that offer more protection, while also being both smaller and more comfortable. By partnering with Kali Protectives we are now able to bring these technological advances to BMXers at a similar price to ordinary low-tech helmets. We’re confident that you’ll be as impressed with the Viva as we were.

Helmets available now at $54.99 retail. Dealers please contact Full Factory Distro.

Stampy Handlebar Test Posted by Francis on Apr 26, 2016

(Uncheck if it looks wonky)

Presented by Odyssey:

As part of our mission to make the best BMX parts 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 durability of all our parts.

In our previous Stampy tests, we have blown away the industry standard “EN tests” for forks and cranks, and now it’s time to take a look at handlebars. In our latest test, we have taken bars with very similar height, width, and sweep dimensions, and tried to replicate a lifetime of nose-diving into the ground and pulling up on the bars for a sprint to gain speed in a confined space.

The Stampy handlebar rig drives down on the grip sections right where your hands would be with 1000N (that is about 225 pounds of force) per side, and then pulls back up with another 1000N (225lb). It drives down at a 45 degree angle, just like you would in real life. However, unlike a real rider, the Stampy rig can do this 18,000 times per hour, for as long as it takes to break the handlebar. To get an idea of what that’s like, you can fill a backpack with bricks until you weigh 225 pounds and then attempt to do 30,000 one-arm push-ups, and 30,000 one-arm pull-ups.

stampy-bars-results

As expected, when we tested our bars against our competitor’s bars that had similar geometry, we outperformed them once again. Our worst bar was 33% better than the best of the rest, and our best bar was over 400% more durable than the worst. So remember, when you are buying bars, although they may look very similar, they are not all “the same”.

When you see how hard we push to make the best parts; to make them better and better every chance we get, it is easy to understand why our legendary lifetime warranty against bending and breaking is still around 17 years after we first introduced it. And when you see the contrast between our bars and our competitors, you can also quickly see why most of their warranties have long since been quietly canceled or modified with complicated terms and conditions that usually limit the warranty to manufacturing defects alone.

Air Supply Tubes
Posted by Nuno on Feb 24, 2016

ODSY-Air-Supply-Tube-3-Web-2025

Odyssey Air Supply tubes are specifically sized to fit modern BMX tires, and they are manufactured with a stronger emphasis on quality versus simply chasing the lowest possible price. On average, the Air Supply BMX tube retains air significantly longer than others currently available on the market. This is down to both the rubber that is used, and because of strict quality control during manufacturing.

It is normal to assume that a “tube is a tube”, but a higher quality tube will always last longer than a cheap tube during comparable everyday use.

Retail – $4.99
