NEW for 2017 is the Bios seat range. A new line of saddles which combine classic, proven Tripod or Pivotal seat bases, with our latest designs, resulting in a seat that not only rides great, but is also more friendly on your wallet than you’d think. (more…)
The drive to progress and innovate is something that never slows down for éclat. We continually believe in taking a step back, looking at the bikes we ride and trying to work out how we can modify, change, or even just totally re-think even the smallest component into something that’s even better than before.
The 2017 line brings some exciting new products into the fold, taking our product range to a whole new level. We can’t wait to introduce you to the successes and breakthroughs we’ve made over the past year.
All of our 2017 products are available NOW from your local shop or mailorder, and you can see them in all their glory here.
In a sport driven by creativity and free thinking, we understand that different riders have vastly different needs and tastes. Part of what drives us as a BMX brand is to offer a diverse range of parts that caters to every need possible. Pedals are one of the most overlooked components on a bike.
One of the few parts which actually connects the rider to the bicycle, to most riders, having the perfect feeling pedal is somewhat of a necessity if they are to make the bike feel like theirs.
The Seeker Pedal was born out of the request from some of the guys on the team like Devon Smillie and Shane Weston who wanted a pedal with a larger platform than most, but with a slightly thinner profile.
As of November 1st 2016, we have moved our UK distribution operations for Éclat BMX from Cycling Sports Group UK to Snap Distribution. (more…)
Ever on the quest to improve and innovate our product line, fresh for the 2017 season we are beyond excited to introduce our new Strangler 4pc handlebar. The Strangler bar is our first bar to utilize the new 25.4mm oversize clamping system, resulting in an incredibly strong and durable handlebar that is much stronger than anything else before it. (more…)
This is a big one for us, and a product that we couldn’t be more excited to see these finally hit shops very soon. Introducing our new Storm Fork, the end result of over 2 years of extensive R&D into how we can make the strongest BMX fork possible. After years of work, and countless hours of laboratory and real life rider testing with the PRO team, we have reached a new benchmark in BMX fork strength.
Don’t let the Storm fork’s subtle appearance deceive you, this fork is a well-calculated balance of tubing thickness, material specification and our own heat-treatment process, ensuring that it can hold up to more abuse than any fork before it. Despite the huge increase of strength in this fork, we used a clean and simplistic design which keeps the weight down, making it much lighter than you would expect.
The Storm fork was a chance for us to really spend a lot of time looking into the welding process. We experimented with different welding rods to find out how we could ensure the strongest possible welds, since that’s one of the most critical areas on a fork.
We’ll be giving you more insight into the design process and showing the testing that went into the fork very soon to show just how strong this thing is, but until then take a closer look at the new pride and joy of the 2017 eclat product line.

New for the 2017 season is the Raven Rim. A new addition to our current rim offering, the concept from the very beginning was to maximise the weight/strength ratio. As BMX has progressed over the years, rims have had to evolve to cope with the bigger, gaps and forces that riding can put through a bike. As rims have become stronger and wider, they often had to get much heavier. (more…)
