If you have been riding BMX for a long time, you know by now that many products come and go pretty quick, dependent on how well they sell and if it holds a positive reputation for getting the job done. Unfortunately with how fast trends can come and go, a lot of great products disappear sooner than later. There are very few products that last more than a few years and even fewer that last a decade without many changes. So, when an anniversary celebrating a products 15th year in rotation (pun intended), it’s a pretty impressive milestone. Odyssey are celebrating the 15 year anniversary of their classic Hazard Lite rim, which was a lighter and more dialed version of their original Hazard rim that was an absolute tank. The Hazard Lite, made from 6061-T6 aluminum features a double wall design and precision welded seam with a design that can handle abuse from street, ramps and trails riding. It weighs in at 17.7 oz and has come in a number of colors over the year, but you can’t go wrong with the classic black that is seen above. As always, you can pick this rim up for $67.99 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Odyssey worldwide.
“2016 marks the 15 year anniversary of the Hazard Lite. Born out of the original high-walled Hazard Rim, the Hazard Lite has withstood the test of time. If you look back through the years, you will find this rim beneath many riders and it remains one of the top selling products in our lineup to this day. There have been some lookalikes, but nothing beats the real thing. Light, strong and reliable, just like they always have been. Cheers to a timeless classic!”
