For the ones of us north of the equator we've finally seen some signs of spring rearing its beautiful head so now's the time to get the land vessel in tip top shape. Eclat have always got some cutting edge new gear on the go and this year is no different. Feast your eyes...
AK Guard Sprocket
Creator of all things cool, Alex Kennedy touched his magic wand upon this Guard sprocket and we reckon it looks pretty damn on point. Designed with the guard to fit IN the sprocket and not just on the surface, this thing should stand up to all the bashin' and sliding you can muster. This thing is made out of the same white coat tested Nylon/Fibreglass material used in Eclat's Venom Pegs and AK’s signature pedal so you know it's legit.

Sizes: 25t or 28t
Thickness: 8mm thick sprocket, 10mm thick guard
Weight: 25t - 150g (5.29oz) 28t - TBA
