HELL YES! We’ve all been looking forward to seeing what Sean Burns, Stevie Churchill and Nathan Williams got done on their travels to Japan and the resulting video is nothing short of insane. All three of these dudes were riding like mad men and laid waste to so many amazing spots and setups. After peeping the trailer, head over to eclatbmx.com/jpn to get your mind blown by the full video!
“Behold the MAVERICK 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.”
Learn more about the Eclat Channel Sprocket in this new product video: “The Channel is a perfectly CNC machined, symmetrical BMX sprocket available in a variety of tooth sizes. The weight has been reduced with hollow spokes and as a spline drive only sprocket, at the center is a heat treated 48 spline crmo insert”.

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.”
