Watch the above video t learn more about the Eclat Stream fork: “The Stream fork is all you need in a fork, it includes fully invest cast drop outs and the fork itself requires no bearing runner on the crown (works only with internal/integrated headsets 45° angle). Each set of forks come with a high quality 7075-T6 alloy top bolt”.
Anthony Perrin has a bike check over on the Eclat website where you can see his all new black on black set-up. He’s apparently working on a promo video for their Maverick cranks so be on the lookout for that one! Peep more photos here.
“Japan has always been on our radar of places to go, but in the past we always liked the idea of hitting places that had never had much previous coverage, we love the idea of searching and finding spots ourselves and we know that makes for a very special trip if everything goes to plan.
Instead of spending our time in Tokyo we have decided to get in the van and head cross country, our final destination is Kobe, and along the way we will be stopping at Osaka and Kyoto. From the 1st of May you can follow Nathan Williams, Stevie Churchill and Sean Burns as they gun it for Kobe, to follow just add us on instagram or check up the #eclatjapan tag.”

The Eclat Venom plastic pegs are now available worldwide. Looking good and durable:
“The Venom peg uses a two-piece steel/plastic design based on the ‘classic sleeve’ system. Our aim was to create a plastic sleeve peg with a diameter similar to a standard steel peg. This lead us down the route of a steel/plastic design with a slim crmo inner peg wrapped in a generous thickness of our specially developed (for the Nathan Peg) hardwearing nylon compound. When testing the prototypes we saw these pegs going beyond 6 months of hard riding! In a nutshell, if you want to grind fast give these a go”.
Check out this quick demo of Eclat‘s new E-Tool, their take on the all in one BMX multi-tool. It features an 8/10mm wrench, 15mm spoke wrench, 19mm U brake wrench, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm hex bit and of course, a 17mm socket. To get an even closer look at the E-Tool and all its contents, head over to eclatbmx.com.
Burns lays down over a minute of insane footage in this, plus he gets into discussing his roots in BMX which are just as weird and costumed as you might expect. The highlight for me would be either the fucking crazy wheelchair hop to rail manual, or his mom thinking he was going out to California to work as a prostitute when he went to shoot with Navaz for Dead Bang because he was wearing a leopard print blouse.
Watch this new Eclat product video focusing on their Maveric Cranks:
“These cranks are all about strength, as anyone who’s ever snapped a pair of cranks will know, its usually at the welding where things let go. This is where alloy comes into its own, being able to forge in a 3D shape means you can avoid the welding, and therefore the weak spot. What’s totally unique about the Mavericks is their use of a regular 48 spline. Until now alloy cranks were only available with a mountain bike style square spindle and a pinch bolt on the arm. We wanted to raise the bar and clean up the looks, and thanks to a heat treated crmo insert into the alloy its all been made possible”.
