For this latest productivity feature we’re taking a swift look at Eclat's 2016 product line. Eclat have always been highly regarded for the innovative design that they've brought to BMX products and from the looks of their 2016 line that progression just keeps going. Take a look through and then head to www.eclatbmx.com for more info.

CONTRA PEDAL

The plastic versus metal argument is a longstanding one with many companies trying to create a hybrid, Eclat seem to be on the cusp of ending that debate though with their new Contra pedal. Do you love having light pedals that are going to slide a beezer doing pedal grinds but need more grip and durability than plastic pins can offer? The Contra comes featuring medal pins on just one side offering you the grip you’ll no doubt desire but the sliding capability metal platforms and pins can’t offer.

- knurled top surface

CORTEX FREECOASTER HUB

Like most parts companies in BMX, Eclat have spent the last few years trying to make a robust and reliable freecoaster and it looks like they may have accomplished just that. Using the new O-ring system and adding an integrated “stop ring” Eclat sought to change the problem most riders faced with traditional freecoaster hubs. Now you get a hub that won’t suffer from the sideways play that often plagues coasters and switching out the traditional ball and spring with a high quality rubber O-ring and a long lasting steel spring your hub will require minimal maintenance and stay rolling smooth. Also expect a big quarter crank of slack pre-set into the hub because no one wants to have the chance of looping out when it matters most.

BONDI XL RIM

The Bondi rim has been around for a few years now but there’s a very good reason Eclat have kept it in production. Flash welded for strength and featuring a wide design to spread out the impact force when you’re landing heavy. This is a no bullshit rim that’s made to hold up to lots of abuse while being easy on your wallet.

BRUNO GRIP

Everyone knows how hard Bruno goes so when he’s rolling up to something he needs to be gripping something that’ll leave him with no doubt in his mind. The Bruno grip will leave you with just that, thinner than most grips you’ll get an instant feeling of comfort as you would with a grip you’d worn in but using Vex Kraton materiel they’ll be incredibly soft and long lasting.

VENOM PEG

The Venom peg was designed with the idea of giving the plastic peg a sleeker look. Even though the Venom is smaller in diameter than most that doesn’t mean you’ll be burning through sleeves. The venom uses a steel core rather than aluminum which in turn means a thinner metal core can be used resulting in a smaller diameter peg but not affecting the thickness of the plastic. Eclat use a special nylon/fiberglass compound for their sleeve and are 4.5mm thick so you’ll be grinding on one of these for a while before switching them out.
