Today we welcome Rob Harris to the AM squad. The CULT rider from Cardiff has been silently upsetting the concrete architecture of Wales for some time now and he is currently working on a welcome video for us with the talented Nick Wotton behind the lens. Rumor has it Rob has two goats at home. Buzzing. (more…)
Carl Arnett will literally ride anything, his take on riding totally differs from that of whats probably deemed mainstream but thats one of the main reasons we love Carl. He flew in from Vancouver to ride with us for Mount Royal and every day he took his 35mm shooter out with him. Take a look at Carls view of the trip including photos of Dillon thinking of where the spots are, crazy kids chasing rolling tires and the crew taking in the summer in Montreal. Get hyped for the video when it drops next month.
Hub Guards have never been such an important and vital component on the modern day BMX bike as they are today. What used to be an optional “extra” you might end up picking up when you had the spare cash, the hub guard is now the street rider’s best friend and could be the small investment which saves you from destroying your hubs and the much larger cost of having to pay out for a new hubset after a few moves on the local flat ledge setup.
For the next installment of our new product series ASSEMBLED, were going to be looking at our new heavy duty, and completely universal Overguard, which is designed to be able to protect any kind of rear hub from the brutality that street riding can put your bike through. This week we combine the Overguard with our NEW Dark Gum Venom pegs and Cortex Freecoaster hub, a setup that many of the PRO team are riding right now…
Harry Mills-Wakley has been filming for this one since July 2015 and what was originally meant to be a few clips then turned into a 6 month belter, including a trip to Barcelona halfway through. Harry is well known for his mix of smooth peggery and predator skills and this has got all that and more. (more…)
Here at Éclat we have many aesthetic guidelines when it comes to designing new products, one of those is to think about how the product in question will fit, sit and lock into place with another product. This subject is often just as important as the design of the product itself. While our products are fully compatible with the majority of other branded parts on the market, ALL of our parts are specifically designed to lock seamlessly into place. We view this like a marriage, a well-oiled indestructible marriage.
To coincide with the release of our 2016 product line we bring you the first in a series of features, taking an in depth look at some of our new and current products, and how they all work together in harmony to create a compact setup. We kick things off with our mighty Maverick Alloy Crank, and two new additions to the family, the Contra Pedal and the RS Sprocket.
