Venture Odin - 2012


Since the day that we received a press release from Venture boasting about the upcoming release of their collaboration with Swedish Big Mountain legend Johan Olofsson we were uncontrollably excited. To have one of the most influential freeriders ever to grace the planet working with such a small, flexible and forward thinking manufacturer was a mouth-watering prospect. The result of this collaboration is the Odin. Blending a slightly tapered shape with a reverse camber profile that has a flat section between the bindings, a 40mm setback stance and a near 10m sidecut the Odin is designed for epic powder descents down exposed faces and over jaw-dropping roll-overs.

Manufacturer's Description:

The Odin is the result of a close collaboration between legendary rider Johan Olofsson and Venture’s founder and design engineer, Klemens Branner.† Dubbed Odin after the Norse god of war and wisdom, this big mountain beast is a nod to its creators’ Viking roots and is the ideal choice for hard charging freeriders who like to pull out all the stops. Tailored to Olofsson’s riding style and preferred terrain, the Odin combines all mountain precision with powder specific features for uncompromising performance across the full range of big mountain conditions.† Moderate sidecut delivers wide arching turns and quadratic sidecuts offer plenty of grip, while a rockered shape and serious stance offset promise plenty of float when Mother Nature gives up the goods. Unleash the power of the Odin in the gnarliest conditions and watch it dominate.†
