ODYSSEY R32 FORKS – REVIEW

Odyssey R32 forks are legendary. They’ve been backed by a lifetime warranty for over 15 years. That says it all…

Odyssey have got it dialled. Their product design has to be among the best in BMX, they’ve pioneered several technologies and seem to hold more patents in their inventions than many other brands. It’s been said that Odyssey (and their family of GSPORT and Sunday) are at the forefront of BMX product design, and we wouldn’t really argue with that.

They say they have a mission to make the best BMX forks possible and are continuing to refine their legendary 41-Thermal heat treating process at all stages of manufacture. The Odyssey team is a collection of some of the best riders out there today, and obviously they help test new products in development. On top of this the guys at Odyssey take official product testing very seriously. There are videos that show this… They really give ‘em hell.

“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.”

That obviously wasn’t enough hell, so Odyssey made a new rig that exerted more force on the forks, giving them 50% more stress. After 650,000 cycles, they finally gave way. That’s three or four times more resilience than the other forks they tested made by other brands. Odyssey are obviously very proud of this.

“Odyssey R32 forks are legendary. They’ve been backed by a lifetime warranty for over 15 years.”

“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.”

It’s obvious why these forks have been so popular for so long. Carefully designed, proven, built to last.
