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”.

Get an inside look at Eclat‘s Kolibri hubs in this quick promo video.
“The Kolibri cassette hub is all about simplicity. The hub shell is clean and simple that keeps the cnc machining time down and therefore the price. The flanges are nice and low and match better to the front hubs, so from the side view the bike has a nicely equal balance in the proportions. Sticking with a regular 14mm hollow axle helps keep the weight down, and a simple cassette system with a full bushing driver continues the ‘simple’ theme inside the hub too. So if you’re looking for a straight forward, clean and simple low flange cassette hub, here it is.”

Get a closer look at Eclat‘s new Unify seat in this quick video. And just in case you need some closed captions, here’s what they had to say about it:
“The Unify seat is really the simplest form of seating you could hope for, with no hassle adjusting angles and offset, just drop it in and off you go. An alloy inner core provides strength then has the plastic injected around it to form an incredibly strong one piece post and seat base. The Unify is beautiful in its simplicity and is available in two options, slim and thick padded with durable hard wearing top covers.”
Stevie texted me this image of his new signature Eclat tire last night and made me SWEAR that I wouldn’t post it. I just looked at my RSS feed and Vital posted it three hours ago. Fuck Young Neck Pillow. This is named after his beverage of choice, in case you’re not too knowledgable about liquor.
