If you plan on building an all Odyssey wheelset, you’re in luck. We have a variety of complete wheels you can buy and use straight out of the box.
Using our new pinned Quadrant rim, we’re able to offer a new set of complete wheels that’s sure to meet your budget, while still durable enough to meet your needs. You can get a Quadrant Wheel laced onto a V3 Cassette for the rear. And yes, it comes with a 9t driver.
While a welded seam rim is considered the best, that was compared to the pinned rims of the past that were not considered high end. To meet the needs of a lower priced rim that can be used on the professional level, The Quadrant rim was designed with an entirely new pinned junction. The cross section shows the four pins, two in the beads and two at the outermost corners of the rim’s inner diameter, unlike other pinned junctions that use 2 pins, in random placement. The 4 pins in these areas forms a significantly stronger joint. The spoke lacing has a slight offset and it is drilled at an angle where there is extra support for the nipples in the rim’s central section. This lacing pattern and orientation allows for a strong wheel build that is easy to assemble and manufacture. The Quadrant is a double wall design made from 6061-T6, weighing in at approximately 420g, making it the lightest rim we make. US and Foreign Patents Pending.
The hub that almost every modern cassette is based on is the V3 Cassette hub . Designed and Re-designed in-house at Odyssey BMX in California. We have been making our hub, and improving it since 2001, every other hub comes second, and prospers from our improvements. The V3 has the first hollow, heat-treated, 14mm axle with 6mm Allen wrench end for easy removal and maintenance. Angled Flanges to resist spoke damage and breakage.
