Drawing Board: Odyssey 41 Thermal Forks

Forks are something I don’t fuck around with ever since having a pair shear off. I’ve also had a crank arm fall off just from me pedaling down the street due to poor heat treating. That said I’ve had quite a few Odyssey products over the years including forks that have had their 41 Thermal process and have ZERO problems with them. It’s been almost 15 years since Odyssey released their first forks utilizing their proprietary heat treatment process, and over the last decade and a half they have continued to refine and improve not just their products but the 41 Thermal process as well. Head over to The Merged for a great interview with Odyssey’s Product Design Manager Chris Cotsonas that delves into the history of 41 Thermal and the forks utilizing it.
