Homeless Guy Tries To Ride BMX

On a trip to Atlanta the Eclat crew met a homeless guy who wanted to try to ride a BMX bike, but the result was not the brightest. A sip of vodka and off you go. But it turned out he was OK (at least it looks like that) and they gave him a few buck for being brave.
“In Atlanta we met a homeless guy who told stories of seeing the cramps when he was just 13, he had a freezer pack of vodka and was already half cut when we met him. I guess he thought he still had guts to do something crazy.
We would like to point out that riding BMX while under the influence is not something we condone, nor do we do it ourselves. Our advice would be to stay away from it in fact.
Life is real though and occasionally you happen to see a drunk guy drop a big ledge on a BMX.
The outcome was he was okay, we helped him with enough money to get the train to the hospital to get a check up, I’m not sure if he spent it on more vodka though.”

Eclat Nathan Williams Stem Out Now + Promo

Nathan Williams’ signature top load stem from Eclat is out now and above is a quick promo with a few riding shots from Nathan himself. The steam is CNC machined out of a 6061-T6 alloy brick, weight 289g (10.19oz) and comes in three different color options, black, blue and high polished.
“Right from the start we knew that the signature stem for Nathan had to be something special. As a start Nathan had some interesting ideas to incorporate, and once we had settled on a toploader with a lower offset we then worked out the aesthetics. In order to give the stem a cleaner look we opted for a pinch clam, so that the front side of the cap would meet flush with the stem body. We then worked out a way to sink the rear part of the cap into the stem body in such a way that it hid the botls from view. This unique feature gives stem a distinctive integrated look, and at the same time grips the bar with incredible force.”

Eclat – Sniper Level Promo Feat. Darryl Tocco

Eclat BMX asked Darryl Tocco to put their Sniper lever to a test and film a few clips to get a promotional video done. First watch Darryl ride and get a brief info about the lever and that go to the Eclat web site to learn more about it.
“The Sniper lever was designed from the very beginning to be the ultimate brake lever in all senses. The shape of the lever itself was sculptured for the perfect reach, with a slimmer center section and winder at the end where the finger pulls. This improves the ergonomic feeling of the lever and therefore the force you can comfortably apply on it. The backside of the lever is flat, so that when the lever is pulled tight, there is still maximum clearance to the knuckles of the other fingers. We used a cold fogging process for the lever parts as this offers increased strength characteristics over casting.”
