Odyssey just announced via Instagram that, after ten years, Chase Hawk will no longer be riding for the brand. Definitely a surprising announcement, as Chase has been obviously killing it the last couple years. From my point of view, this has obviously come up rather sudden as Chase was present at Odyssey’s 30 year celebration just last weekend…

Just got off the phone with Chase and he confirmed that he was caught off guard by the move, citing that he was merely told that he wasn’t putting much effort into working with Odyssey, but he was quick to point out that he’s been putting a lot of effort into filming for the Etnies video. Overall, Chase wanted to convey that while he’s bummed that it was just another bump in the road and that he’ll be full-blown Cult now. He’s looking forward to having everything under one roof and bringing out some additional signature parts through Cult.

A good reason to post Chase’s section from Electronical, at least…
