German smooth man Kilian Roth has been dealing with a knee injury for the past 6 months but he’s now back on the horse and just built up a sick looking new whip! Eclat put together a very detailed bike check with him and you can peep here.
Today we’ve got a new one from Sam Jones for Eclat that our friend Mark Noble was nice enough to set up for us. Anybody who is paying attention should know that Sam is one of the best dudes out there right now and this video definitely helps prove that. Here’s what Callum Earnshaw had to say about putting this section together:
“Me and Sam started filming a few clips out in Paris earlier in the year when i was filming Jordan Godwin’s Welcome to WTP edit, we then headed out to Barcelona in September to catch a bit of sunshine and see what else we could capture. On the last day filming Sam was pumped to try something big and went for an opposite pegs to hop over to flat on a dead-man kinked rail, he got pretty beat up trying it, literally to a point where he could barely walk. It’s a shame as we knew it would have made an awesome ender on top of the great footage we had already shot”
Dan Coller has a fresh new interview on the Eclat site talking about his motivations for riding, filming, traveling and more. He also gives us a little more insight on Kink’s mysterious “Intervention” project as well. Hit eclatbmx.com to read the full interview.
Here’s some footage of Bruno to promote his new signature grips which will be out in a few months… All I gotta say is that the last trick is so amazing that I made everyone come into my room to see it. Check out more info on the grips here and if you’re anything like me the last 2 sentences of this paragraph might make you chuckle.
“Bruno is already a veteran at the age of 22. He’s been through a passport and seen more spots globally than 99% of BMXers ever will in their whole life. Despite all his German Street Rider of the Year Awards and international media coverage, Bruno’s life and interests exceed the BMX bubble. Equipped with a very ambitious mind he has well educated perspectives on political and social matters. For a while now he has been living in Frankfurt, the german banking capitol and capitol of all kinds of crime. In this atmosphere of social divide Bruno has helped to build the strongest BMX street crew of the country, CIAO. These are all aspects you should take into account when looking at his new signature grip. The CIAO logo as well as the skyline of Frankfurt pay hommage to the things that are important to him. But now enough of the praise and down to business. Bruno has been through his fair share of bike parts, killing spots for the past decade. The list of his sponsors speaks for itself, so he knows his shit. Why are these grips prone to be absolutely amazing? Answer: they have to be, as you are not going to see Bruno take his hands off of them any time soon. That’s right, #shotsfired.”
I happened to notice a couple of mew videos in my inbox immediately before going to bed after a long night and figured I’d give them both a watch. The first one sucked but this one definitely did not. Jordan is super good and fires out a ton of amazing grind combos in here.
Many years from now when they write the history books on 2010-present BMX, The Common Crew will go down as one of the most talented groups of young riders to have ever emerged from one area. Julian Arteaga is just one of many Common soldiers but his effortless style and unique trick selection sets him apart from the rest of the pack. Eclat seem to have noticed just how potent Julian is on a bike, as he is the newest addition to their already stacked team. Check out the above video which Francis Castro put together to help welcome Julian to the squad and then go do yourself a favor and follow this kid on the Gram.
Bruno Hoffmann get really tech with this one clip filmed in Frankfurt in order to promote the new Eclat Filter grips.
The grip of choice for Bruno Hoffmann, the Filter grip is new for 2015. Built using a simple ribbed pattern and symmetrical design, this is one long lasting flangeless grip that was designed to feel perfect right out of the packaging. All Éclat grips now use our new Corx V2 barends and the new Vex material for longer life and a softer feeling grip. Find out more about the Filter grip here.
