The Pulsar grip seems to be Éclat’s flagship grip offering. They’re stoked on it, we’re stoked on it, are you stoked on it? Read on for some more info.
Éclat, started in 2008, is a parts company run by the same guys as Wethepeople. They say that simplicity is at the heart of their approach to product design, and that they’re constantly moving forward and pushing the boundaries to create innovative and exciting BMX parts that last longer than ever.
Put simply, they know what they’re doing. Their design work is always on point, their videos are awesome and their team absolutely shreds. With the likes of Ty Morrow, Devon Smillie, Alex Kennedy, Dan Coller and Sean Burns (to name but a few) running Éclat parts, you know you can count on them.
“The Pulsar is the end result of Éclat’s quest for the perfect grip.”
Éclat say the Pulsar grip is the end result of their quest for the perfect grip. It’s easy to see what they’ve gone for in the design, with a mixture of ‘rib’ styles to give a different feel in different places along the grip. The way this range of profiles works is to provide more softness where you put most pressure and more rigidity where you need it most, slightly reminiscent of the old Odyssey Gary Young grips. In any case, the result is that they feel like they’re already nicely worn in when they’re fresh out of the box – sweet!
