Tomorrow we're leaving for the Battle Of Hastings. A BMX battle this time, 950 years after 6000 people died in the fight in 1066.

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.
