In Focus: Stevie Fork

4F5C0026

As soon as Stevie got on the team, we knew we wanted to work together on something special. Stevie is a beast of a rider and needed a Fork that would hold up to sending Truckdrivers down 23 stair drops. The new Eclat Stevie Fork was built from the ground up with strength and durability in mind. Made out of full liquid post heat-treated seamless 4130 chromoly with fully cnc’d steerer and butted fork blades, the Stevie Fork uses 6mm thick peg friendly invest cast dropouts and clearance for 2.40″ and larger tires.

Stevie wanted the fork to be available for all kinds of riders so we decided to offer the his fork in two offsets, 26mm for technical street riding and a more traditional 32mm for all round riding. Weighing in at 1028g (36.26oz) these forks are the perfect balance between strength and weight, and with Stevie’s stamp of approval what more could you want in a fork?

Young Bloods Answer Back

We recently sent our British contingency into the horrible sunshine ridden depths of Alicante to let them go nuts on a bunch of rails and sweet set ups. The end product is nearing competition so we asked each rider what they thought about each of the other two, if that makes sense.

Harry Mills-Wakley

Whats the worst thing about the other two on the trip?

Um that’s a difficult question, thanks! Um if I could I pick anything at all it would be the talk of Clash of the Clans. Everyone else on the trip had it and I didn’t so I didn’t really know what they were talking about ha!! Nothing major though!

What the best thing about the other two on the trip?

Definitely their motivational stance on the trip and their patience. A couple of things took a little while to do and there was no rushing onto the next spot! just saying “You got that”. Once someone landed their trick and it was praise all-round from everyone.

Who got up the earliest?

Cal was the earliest up everyday and then it was usually myself. I was usually woken up by Cal cooking breakfast for everyone or him say “its raining or super sunny outside”!!

Who stinks the worst?

Nobody we are all fresh young men!!

Who came away from Alicante in one piece?

Everybody took some slams, I destroyed my ankle falling down a stair set, Jordan fell off doing a 360 out of the sky!! and Sam was dosed up on nurofen the whole trip for ongoing injuries. Even Fooman hurt his hand pretty badly. So if anyone it was Cal!

Whats the worst thing about the other two on the trip?

Nothing was bad – they’re both really cool to hang out with.

What the best thing about the other two on the trip?

Best thing had to be how laid back they both are, so there was no arguing about anything – we just went with the flow.

Who got up the earliest?

I really don’t know, because I was always the last up – haha!

Who stinks the worst?

Probably me to be honest…

Who came away from Alicante in one piece?

Me and Sam – Harry killed his ankle, that sucked, but he trooped on !!

Sam Jones

Whats the worst thing about the other two on the trip?

To be totally honest I can’t think of anything… Apart from Godwin’s unhealthy obsession with Coke and chocolate, hahaha, sugar fiend!

What the best thing about the other two on the trip?

Both just absolutely kill it, a treat to hang around with, and always up for a glass of 70 cent champagne! 

Who got up the earliest?

I shared the living room with Harry, and after Cal coming in and turning on the coffee machine, Harry was! 

Who stinks the worst?

Probs me! 

Who came away from Alicante in one piece

Considering how much everyone got done, we all came away unhurt and kicking!
