OFF STREET ONLY ROOTS
Off Street Only - OSO Components, started in 2011, was borne from a passion and desire to design and produce high quality products.
"My entire life path has led me here. It is an honor, a challenge and a blessing to have the opportunity to design product that will get you outside to create memories on dirt or snow. My best breath is on a trail surrounded by trees, mountains, and open space. I have two decades of professional experience and four decades of mountain adventures that have gifted me the breadth and depth to design the highest quality product for off-road. You know you feel your best self when you are inhaling the ride with the sound of twigs and leaves snapping below. Let OSO take you there." Anthony Trujillo - Founder/Engineer
OSO: Designed to Charge.
