Here is a promo edit for Shane Weston’s signature Eclat “Moon” grips. Once again, Shane bring out his unique and one of kind riding that is just amazing to watch. The hop cannonball was pretty crazy.
“As this grip had such a unique look there was no way we could use our normal bar end with it. So, with Shane we worked up a design which blended perfectly into the style and shape of the grip and the rest is history.
The final compound is a really soft 23° durameter, high quality Kraton rubber. It’s both soft and comfy but at the same time feels sticky with loads of grip. At 150mm long it looks awesome on a wider bar, and the tighter 19mm internal diameter means there’s plenty of life in them too!”
Eclat posted a sneak peek of their upcoming freecoaster called Blind. No info on this thing yet, no release date yet, no nothing. Maybe this is going to be Shane Weston’s signature?
“We’ve always been very sure of our team and incredibly selective when it comes to new editions, for us its not just about getting the heavy hitters or the guys that enter the most competitions, in fact it’s more about diversity and friendship. It’s no lie that Geoff’s been getting parts from us for a while, it’s also no lie that the founding members of this team wanted Geoff on board from the start. Its nice to know that things came around and Geoff has landed himself on what we think is a progressive and versatile team and we are more than happy to welcome Geoff to the team. Heres to Geoff!”– Eclat
