This short, but sweet edit dropped earlier today from the guys at Éclat BMX and it features their newest member of the team - Andrew Schubert. I'll be honest, I've never heard of this guy before but if Éclat deem him good enough for a spot on their team then surely this Welcome Edit wouldn't disappoint, right?
Disappointed I was not. This was a solid video with a bunch of original and well thought-out lines, executed with Andrew's own unique style of riding. There's no doubt that you'll recognise a few famous BCN spots in this vid, and there's a bunch of local footage from his home town in Vancouver too. This one is definitely worth a look if you fancy a fresh, new face on your screen and some dope street skillzzz. Enjoy!
"The Canadian squad is joined by Andrew Schubert. Check out some fresh footage from Andrew shot during a recent trip to Barcelona and then back home in Vancouver. Filmed & edited by Riley Abramyk & Brand Hill."
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.
“We quite like the look of the Eclat Maverick Cranks, they remind us of the old Primo Powerbites (in a good way.)"
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 Maverick cranks are beasts, plain and simple. You can see their strength straight away. Éclat know that the welds are usually the point where cranks are most vulnerable, so they decided to swerve the whole issue by cold forging the Mavericks out of 7000-series alloy. That means no weak spots.
