How does a freecoaster work? Odyssey is here to explain. They posted this detailed video series explaining how their Clutch freecoaster works and why they made certain design decisions. It's pretty technical but a great way to understand how a freecoaster works if you never dared to open one or cut it in half. This is not an advertisement, we just think Odyssey released good content. If you are looking for a less technical guide there is an older video guide by RideBMX.
