Éclat BMX: Introducing the Strangler Bar

4pc Goodness...

It’s always exciting when you know there’s a new product on the market, especially when the brand drops a sneak peek on their Instagram with a rather cryptic message… The guys at Éclat know what they’re doin’ for sure! 😉

Building the hype for their new Strangler Bar wasn’t hard though, many of you have been waiting for this bar to drop and the finished product looks fantastic.

First thing that’ll catch your eye no doubt is the oversized 25.4mm tubing used near the clamping area. Overall it’s bigger, stronger and more stems are coming out to suit these chunky monkeys.


Check out the difference (above) in the Strangler Bar compared to a regular 4pc, quite a difference when you line them up next to each other.

Another great feature the guys at Éclat will be using on their 25.4mm and some of their standard 22.2mm stems for 2016 is their new ‘STC’ (Shark Tooth Clamping) System.

“The sharp teeth inside the stem bite into the knurling on the bar, absolutely gripping it in place and preventing it from slipping. You can also find this technology on stems from Wethepeople, Salt and Saltplus for 2016.”


“The 25.4mm tubing on the Strangler bar allows the two tubes to have a much more solid junction, preventing any cracking at the weld.”

The Strangler Bar will be available Summer 2016 in either 9.6″ and 9.1″ rises with compatible 25.4mm Stems available at the same time. Check out some pics & info on the Strangler Bar over on the Éclat website by clicking THIS LINK.
