Aerospace Rim

The Aerospace features an “aero”, or “V-shaped” cross-section, which creates a unique structural design. Made from 6000 series aluminum, it’s both easy to manufacture, incredibly durable and allows us to create a rim that’s strong, light and affordable. Thick inner sidewalls, and a lowered center wall section provide more room when installing or removing tires, and running brakes isn’t an issue.

Odyssey Tom Dugan

Tom Dugan’s signature grip features a timeless coil pattern, along with a feather design across the heavy wear areas. By using two molds you’ll notice feather angle symmetry once they’re installed. Odyssey Par Ends included.

G-Sport Pleg 2

The Pleg 2 features a completely re-designed 7075 aluminum core and proprietary plastic sleeve. This new design allows for a smaller overall peg diameter and substantially increases stiffness. The Pleg 2 core runs 3/4′s of the length of the sleeve so direct damage to the core’s end can be avoided, simplifying sleeve removal and maintaining socket fit.

Sean Sexton now Full Odyssey

I’m pleased to announce that Sean Sexton is now a full-Odyssey rider.

Sean has been on Odyssey flow since 2006 and Odyssey pro since 2010, but we’ve been “sharing” him with our friends at Cinema Wheel Co. Sean is awesome and naturally we want to do more with him, so we decided to step it up and make him full-Odyssey, so now he’s on our wheels, too. Well, if you want to get technical, Odyssey doesn’t make a freecoaster at the moment, so he’s mostly on our wheels. But, even more good news, we’ve been working on a new freecoaster design for the past six months, and Sean will be on a prototype very shortly. More details soon!

Odyssey Aerospace Rims, 36h

6000 series aluminum
34mm wide
23mm tall
36-H

Odyssey Thunderbolt Cranks, RHD, 175mm

Laboratory tested and team proven. Never-Wobble™ crank arm and spindle interface guarantee. 41-Thermal® lifetime replacement warranty against bending, cracking and breaking. Weighs 1lb 11.8oz.

Available in RHD or LHD and in 175 or 180mm sizes.

Odyssey Evo II Brake

The Evo II brake is the industry leading U-brake. Comes with Odyssey’s convenient double lugged straddle cable, custom curved cable hanger and an array of hardware for adapting the brake to every possible set-up.

Odyssey Lincoln Stem

Industrial chain link plates create a reinforced top cap hinge, eliminating the need for traditional bolt holes that can weaken the stem body in this area.

53mm reach. 25mm rise or 7mm when flipped. Forged 6061-T6 aluminum.

Odyssey JCPC Pedals

Extremely light weight plastic bodies eliminate the need for bearings and allow for a spindle that is significantly stronger than normal. Metal pins make the pedal very grippy, and the pedal will still function normally when pins are removed from one side for grind tricks.

Instead of replacing the whole pedal, Pedal Body Halves are easy and inexpensive to replace.

Odyssey GY3 Bar

Gary Young’s signature bars feature a classic looking shape and tall rise. Internally butted throughout. Legendary 41-Thermal® lifetime guarantee.

8.66″ rise. 28″ wide. 12° backsweep. 4° upsweep.

Odyssey Antigram Rear Hub, 9t

The Antigram is a 36-H rear hub that is strong, light and reasonably priced with in-bound axle bolts that is both RHD/LHD switchable and guard compatible.

Odyssey Principal Seat

Gary signature Principal model features a thick padded seat with Pivotal base. The cover is a texturized rubber for grip. Embossed Odyssey logo. Great for barspins!

Odyssey Path Tire, K-Lyte, 2.1″

A time-tested and proven design that works as a great all-around tire. Low rolling resistance, a grippy tread pattern and available in loads of configurations.

Odyssey Principal Seat

Gary signature Principal model features a thick padded seat with Pivotal base. The cover is a texturized rubber for grip. Embossed Odyssey logo. Great for barspins!

Odyssey Burlington Sprocket, 28t

Form meets function in this stiff, strong and lightweight design paired with our Incisor Teeth for increased strength and reduced wear.

Available in 23t, 25t, 27t or 28t.

Odyssey Quik Slic Linear Kable

The easiest and fastest brake cable to install. A straight pull from the built in cable hanger improves performance, too.

Building a replica of Gary’s bike may not automatically qualify you for an X Games Gold, but having the right tools for the job sure doesn’t hurt. Here’s what Gary’s flying around on these days. All photos by Walter Pieringer.

This Kink pro has been hoping the pond more and more these days filming for squash it. We recently got to hang out with him during texas toast jam. After that we realized he would be a great fit to the team. Cant wait to see what the future brings for him.
