The wait is over. The AK Guard is now available in a larger 28t option for those of you who like to haul ass, or just prefer the look and feel of a bigger sprocket on your steed. Using the same lab tested Nylon/Fibreglass material used in our legendary Venom Pegs and AK’s signature pedal, the new 28t AK guard is available both as the complete sprocket/guard combo, and as a replacement guard and bolt kit.

Introducing the Mirage tire, a new high-performance BMX tire designed over the course of the past year with the eclat PRO team. Many riders on the team were asking us for a while for a lighter tire, and for good reason too, to reduce rotational weight. Rotational weight is far more noticeable, and can really affect the way your bike feels and handles.
To create a tire that weighed significantly less than our current offering was not an easy task since reducing the weight of a tire if not done right can sacrifice the durability or performance. We took our time with this one, after a year in development and working with one of the best tire manufacturers in the industry, the “Mirage tire” was born. (more…)
The family grows one stronger today as Greek street technician Jason Eustathiou joins the Eclat AM team through RideOn BMX. Peep your eyes on this banger of a video shot during the past year throughout Europe. Jason is one of the most progressive street riders out there right now and we are over the moon to have him part of the squad. Look out for more from Jason in the very near future…

Back in October of last year we teamed up with DIG BMX and headed 2.5 hours south of Shanghai, to a city called Ningbo in China, not quite knowing what to expect.
Filmed & edited by Callum Earnshaw, episode 1 is now LIVE and features Eclat PRO riders Alex Kennedy and Bruno Hoffmann absolutely destroying this spot goldmine of a city, deep in the heart of China.
Look out for a limited edition 64 page photo book with images from the trip on the DIG BMX webstore tomorrow.
Big thanks to our official Chinese distributor Touch Bike Co for all their help.
NEW for 2017 is the Cortex front hub. A continuation of our much loved Cortex freecoaster. The front Cortex hub was designed to be a no-nonsense front hub – built to grind, and ready for anything you want to throw at it. (more…)
Dan is one of the single most productive guys on the team, he rides with no fear and never seems to hold any negative thoughts towards any aspect of riding which is a real rare trait. Dan’s made the all important jump to the pro team and we couldn’t be happier. 2017 is about to get real heavy. Thanks to ride, Jake Petrujek and Dan for getting all this dialled in.
Everyone has their time, Kilian had to wait for his and battle the demons of a horrific ACL injury in Seville in 2015. It’s great to have him back though and proud to add him to the pro team. This video is pretty unreal. Shout out to Fabien Bader for filming and shout to Cult for being a dope sponsor.
Our NEW Pulsar Grips are arriving at distributors now and across the next few weeks.
The Pulsar grip is the end result of our quest for the “perfect” grip. This flangeless mushroom style grip is made in the USA by ODI grips using their super soft rubber compound which combined with our specially designed rib profile, makes for our longest lasting, and arguably best-feeling grips to date.
The Pulsar grip is available now in Black, Red, Gum, Purple and Army Green and includes our new USA made eclat nylon barends.
Go hit up your local BMX shop or mailorder now to make sure you get your hands on these before they fly out! (more…)
