Odyssey call all the other forks Classic, because they use the classic design of a fork leg parallel with the steerer tube and dropouts that create the offset of the axle position. The Director Fork S2 is anything but classic. While the Odyssey Director Forks may look different from what you are used to, the geometry and feel are an identical match with traditional forks. The axle is in the same position as it would be with a classic fork design.
The Director’s differences lie in the use of new construction techniques, putting this fork in a league of its own. The steerer tube is connected to the legs by using a joint design that is a substantial improvement over ordinary tubular crown forks. The legs have been angled forward so the hollow dropouts can blend smoothly into the leg tubing, while also maintaining a “traditional” axle position. By running the legs “directly” from where the load is applied (at the steerer tube), to where it is reacted against (at the wheel axle), the mechanical efficiency has been maximized in this structure. The end result is improved performance and durability. While this fork is still considered new to some, The 2010 fork has already been improved over the original version. The 3/8? hollow dropouts are formed from the leg itself, rather than being a basic welded on plate that is left to “flap in the breeze” like on a conventional fork. This design, combined with a 10 mm thickness, makes bent dropouts a thing of the past. The hollow dropouts are not only dramatically stronger, they are lighter too.
