Based on the ‘classic sleeve’ system, our aim was to create a plastic sleeve peg with a diameter similar to a standard steel peg. Using a slim crmo inner peg wrapped in a super thick sleeve of our specially developed (for the Team Peg) hardwearing nylon/fibreglass compound, when testing the prototypes we saw the sleeves going beyond 6 months of hard riding. If you’re looking for the strongest and most hardwearing plastic pegs, you’ve found them.
The Venom Peg is available now in 4″ and a longer 4.5″ version for those of you who want the extra length. The crmo core is so durable that you will only need to replace the sleeves (available separately) once they wear through, making the Venom’s some of the most cost effective pegs on the market. With almost the whole PRO team using the Venoms as their grind sticks of choice, what more do we have to say? These things rule.

The OZ seat is a superb reflection of what we do here at Eclat. Taking a generic seat design with our own topcover was simply not an option when it came to doing a new pivotal seat. The OZ seat uses a totally new Pivotal base that was designed with strength and durability in mind. The concept in the beginning was to sink the pivotal ratchet deeper into the seat base to give a cleaner look from the side. We also took the opportunity to optimise the support webs inside the molding to make the seat incredibly strong.
There are a lot of pivotal seats out there, but nothing comes close to the strength of the OZ. For those of you who are hard on your seat, we offer the OZ in a slim and a fat option in three colour options.

When it comes to designing our products, rider input and testing could not be more vital. From the second we receive an initial prototype, all the way to the day they hit the shelves, we are constantly listening to our riders and looking for ways we can better our products, ensuring they are the best that they can be.
Bruno Hoffmann rides our new Aeon Crank. The Aeon Crank is a brand new product for 2015. The idea behind the Aeon, was to take the proven 2 & ½ piece system and design a way to make the crank as simple and as easy as possible to install and remove from your bike.
After a year of testing the end result is a super strong and reliable crank which can be assembled within a matter of minutes with two standard Allen keys. This is down to our patented Expanding Spindle System (ESS) which can only be found on the Aeon Crank.

Harry Mills-Wakley is a name you should have certainly picked up on after our #youngbloods trip we dropped a few weeks back. One of the most talented riders coming out of the UK right now, Harry has a unique and refreshing style that makes him a valued addition to our UK team. Filmed across the UK last year, if Harry isn’t on your radar yet, that’s about to change.
