Back in January Eclat dropped this interview first introducing the young bloods trip to Alicante and now Sam Jones is up first in this two part series. Sam hits this Costa Blancan city hard with plenty of good lines and a pretty insane tire ride @ 2:18 which you shouldn’t miss. Keep an eye out for part two dropping tomorrow featuring the rest of Eclat’s British contingency aka Harry Mills-Wakley & Jordan Godwin.
Thinking back on the history of Eclat they have always made innovative products with great design and the strength to keep Sean Burns’s bike rolling (which says a lot). Their new Mercury and Phantom rims are nothing less and you can find out a little more about them right here in Eclat’s new “In Focus” product article.
You know how sometimes you’re in a phase where you don’t ride that much? Well out here in LA we are currently doing the opposite. We’ve been going out in the van every day and stacking tons of footage that will go towards an upcoming project. During our travels, Scott Marceau took a day or two to film some additional clips of Stevie to promote his new signature fork and the above edit is the result. A few more words from Eclat:
“The new Éclat Stevie Fork was built with strength in mind. Made out of full liquid post heat-treated seamless 4130 crmo with fully CNCd steerer and butted fork blades, the Stevie Fork uses peg friendly invest cast dropouts and clearance for 2.40″ and larger tires.
Stevie wanted the fork to be available for all riders so we offer the 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. Out now in Gloss Black, Chrome and Trans Green.”

Last year Eclat heavily researched into different materials and compounds and developed the new VEX rubber material. Their newest grip is the Filter grip and it was Bruno Hoffmann’s first choice when he built up his new bike. Hit the Eclat site for some words from Bruno as well as more about the Filter grip and VEX rubber material.
Following up the recent addition of Bruno Hoffmann, Eclat just announced via Instagram that Alex Kennedy will be joining the already stacked squad. Dig hit him with a few questions and a bike check which you can check out here.
“What better way to start the New Year off in style than with the addition of some great and truly original street riders to our PRO team? Just as Bruno gets settled in we are now welcoming Alex Kennedy to the squad. Having Alex on the team is perfect, an open-minded progressive street rider who can really ride the crap out of our parts.”
Do you have the Elcat Blind Freecoaster hub? Would you like to know how to use it to its full ability? Well you’ve come to the right place. Elclat just dropped a new microsite with step-by-step videos on how to change the drive side from RSD to LSD as well as how to convert it from freecoaster to cassette mode. Check them both out here.
