Ed Zunda’s and Janis Cuncluis’ entry for The Hunt’s 2012 Gold Rush video contest was the winning video and one of the prizes they get was a vacation in Hawaii. Latvian riders Ed and Janis sure enjoyed the sun, beach and all those spots they found and came back with a really good quick edit for Ed’s newest sponsor, Odyssey. The 360 over the set of stairs was huge.
If you missed the Mellon 7’s interview we did with Ed, you can read it now.

After the Red Bull Circle Of Balance flatland contest in Kyoto was over, Stephan Kornely and Waldemar Fatkin did a trip through Japan, visiting some amazing spots and filmed some amazing flat links. Even if you aren’t into flatland riding you will definitely enjoy this one.
Odyssey is back with the second version of their Odsy Vision web series for 2013, kicking things off hard with an amazing welcome to the team edit featuring 15 year old Grant Germain. Three and a half minutes of ridiculously good street riding, from some amazing grind combos, manual links and big trucks. Grant murdered it.

Odyssey’s upcoming Key chain will be out early 2013, but they already have informations that would like to share with your. Hoang Tran, Gary Young and Mike Taylor are currently testing out prototypes to see if any more changes need to be done.
Here are the informations about it:
“1. Oversize Pins. Traditional chain pins are 3mm in diameter, ours are 5mm. This not only makes them stronger but gives a bigger contact with the plates and so makes them harder to push or bend out. Additionally, the pins are riveted in place. Available in Hollow and Solid pin versions.
2. Thicker but lower profile side plates. With an extra narrow waist to each plate they are harder to catch on things. But at 1.4mm thick they are substantially thicker than the plates on any other chain and 50% harder to bend than the thickest existing 1.2mm chain plates.
3. Unique Master and Half links with threaded pins. Break and re-join the chain with just a 3mm hex key. Half link plates are less narrowed at the bends to increase stiffness and minimise stretch. By eliminating the use of a chain breaker to re-join the chain we can ensure factory tightness on all the pins.
4. Low overall weight. By using material as efficiently as possible we have strengthened every component of the chain and kept the weight the same as our Bluebird chain.
5. Low stretch. By using a standard alternating plate pattern and limiting to a single beefed up half link chain stretch is minimised, which in turn maximises sprocket and driver lifespan.”
