Shout out to Gary Young for landing best trick at the Vans BMX Pro Cup in Huntington Beach!
Enjoy the highlight reel from Our BMX.
Don’t let the title fool you – the video is not chill. Travis may be just about the chillest dude there is, but put him on a bike and he becomes a determined, fearless, and practically unstoppable maniac who’s sole focus is pushing his riding to the next level. Filming for more than three years, Travis got to be as picky as he wanted with this one, and the time and work he put in shows. Press play and watch this guy CRUSH it!
Adam built up a new bike that’s as unique as his riding. The top-tube’s new but everything else is still Odyssey. Hit play for the full parts list and some choice clips.
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.
When you see how hard we push to make the best forks; 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 20 years after we first introduced it. And when you see the contrast between our forks 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.

Broc absolutely killed it in his Headlights section. Hit play and get ready to yell at your screen when his ender drops.
Our boy Zach Krejmas not only kills it behind a camera, but in front of one as well. Check out his part from the HEADLIGHTS video.
Follow Broc Raiford, Boyd Hilder, and the homies over the course of three days as they practice, qualify, then compete in finals at the 2019 Vans Rebel Jam (First time in the U.S.) In Huntington Beach, California.
The Broc Raiford signature tire is finally here! We worked closely with Broc to dial in a tread that meets his riding needs while remaining simple and stylish. The BROC Tire features Odyssey’s R-Grip rubber compound which ensures superior grip and wear resistance, and may or may not help you bunnyhop over anything you want.
NOTE: Yes, it squeaks.
Our BMX did an awesome and honest review of our Travel Bag, and as a bonus, they’re also giving one away! Watch until the end of the video to find out how and they’ll pick a winner next Monday (7/29).
I travel quite a lot, so having a bag that fits my bike is pretty important to me. You wanna know what’s also important? Not getting charged a bunch of money for taking my bike on flights. Some airlines will hit you with massive fees if you want to take your bike, so it’s been pretty typical to use a golf bag of some sort to hide your bike on trips. Well, Odyssey has come out with the Traveler Bag and I wanted to see if it worked for me…

Broc Raiford follows up his [ P A S S A G E W A Y S ] video part with a similar yet different approach… This time taking things to the plethora of sidewalk spots that most just cruise by while on the way to the session. Broc sniffs out the road-side gems from LA county to Santa Ana and delivers just as you’d expect.
“Once again I had no idea what I was getting myself into when Zach and I dove back in to start filming for another themed Odyssey Project. With a handful of sidewalk spots already in mind and an optimistic mindset I chose to film an entire video filmed on spots found only on sidewalks! Not only that, but I wanted the spots to be ridden as if you would be riding them on your way to a skatepark or wherever you’re headed. We had our ups and our downs with finding spots that fit these guidelines but overall I am more than stoked on how it came out! Zach did an amazing job filming / editing and I’m excited for you all to see it. Enjoy!“
