German BMX parts company Éclat was founded in 2008, the brainchild of the guys behind the We The People empire. Based on a love of BMX and BMX culture, Éclat has constantly moved forward since its launch, pushing the boundaries in order to create exciting, strong and innovative BMX parts. It uses the best materials and manufacturing available to create quality products, designed to be ridden.
Seductively simple, every Éclat component is underpinned by the latest technology and ideas in high quality BMX parts design – the company’s current range includes seats, seat posts, stems, forks, headsets, brakes, brake levers, brake pads, brake cables, cranks, bb sets, sprockets, pegs, pedals, grips, hubs, tyres, rims and wheels.
One of its most popular products is the classic ‘Dive Bar’, featuring the finest full liquid post heat-treated seamless 4130 crmo tubing, thicker at the bends for added strength and thinner in the straight sections to keep the weight down. Also available is the ‘Stream’ fork, made from the same material and including fully invest cast dropouts and a high quality 7075-T6 alloy top bolt – the fork itself requires no bearing runner on the crown.
Éclat’s team of riders is full of talent, featuring pros Chester Blacksmith, Darryl Tocco, Nathan Williams, Sean Burns, Shane Weston, Geoff Slattery, Dillon Lloyd and Stevie Churchill. Other members of the Éclat family include Randy Taylor, Maxime Charveron, IZ, Phil Demattia, Tom Davis, Farren Downes, Dan Barber and Ashley Charles, plus many more from around the globe.
