Odyssey BMX of US acquires G-Sport of Sheffield

Production of G-Sport hubs and wheels will move to Taiwan. G-Sport - run by product designer George French - has been working with Odyssey for 18 months on French's Elementary Stem. A deal for G-Sport to become part of the "Odyssey family" was agreed late last year with the announcement of the new relationship taking place last Wednesday.

"By becoming part of the Odyssey family G-Sport products should become much more easily available and a little cheaper. Especially to people in exotic foreign lands," said French.

"Because Odyssey will be covering all the stuff I am so bad at like management, ordering, packaging and soon the website too, I will be able to spend a lot more of my time on new product design and development."

French remains based in the UK and will work on product design and development for both G-Sport and Odyssey, with the focus at G-Sport remaining on hubs and wheels.

A statement from Odyssey said existing G-Sport component production will move to Taiwan, "but will retain the strict quality control that has always been the hallmark of the brand."

G-Sport products will be available from Odyssey in Spring 2005.
