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.
We arrived here on Sunday, out of holiday season and with a selection of youtube links to various other BMX edits and skate trips as a reference. We knew this place had spots and the weather was spot on at this time of year. In the first 3 days we’ve seen plenty and not even really covered much of this island. Heres a few select photos but for more updates just head to éclatbmx.com/cyprus(more…)
Part two is here and believe me its a belter. Click play and watch Jordan Godwin and Harry Mills-Wakley shred up Alicante. If you missed part 1 then head eclatbmx.com/youngbloods now for the whole thing, more videos and photos. (more…)
Kicking off a big year of travel for Éclat we are heading to the island of Cyprus with Alex Kennedy, Bruno Hoffmann and Kilian Roth on the 15th of March. With Rich Forne behind the lens and Fred Murray on the stills it’s going to be a treat. We have a meet up with the locals at our distro Macromania on the 20 March so if you’re in town come down, drink a beer and kick it with us. (more…)
Making rims is something we like to think we’ve got pretty good at over the past years. Starting with the infamous Bondi rim, once we had created a set of hoops strong enough for Sean Burns, we knew we were on to a winning recipe. Often something that is taken for granted, a good rim can be the difference between rolling away on to the next spot on two wheels, or taking the long walk back home with a busted bike. It’s only when you cut through a rim that you can see where we have manipulate the metal in different ways to achieve both a unique shape and rim that can really take a beating.
For 2015, the Eclat rim family welcomes two newcomers, the Phantom and the Mercury. Take a closer look at two new hoops that our team have been stoked on lately…
