Get a look at the new E440 Rim from Eclat!
When it comes to BMX rims, they’re one of those parts that have become so dialed in over the years by brands that it’s the finer details that really make the biggest difference. The crew over at Eclat decided it was time to work on a new rim, and challenged themselves to make a rim that was light weight, but still strong enough to hold up to what their pro team is throwing down in the streets. The new E440 Rim is the end result, and it was exactly what they had in mind. The E440 rim is made from 6061-T6 alloy that is flash welded for a strong joint. It features a super stiff profile with thick sidewalls that are taller for rigidity and straight for brakes. On the inside, you can find a double wall design that puts material where the rim takes the most abuse, and cuts back in places it doesn’t to help reduce the overall rotational weight. They’ve also gone with a “narrower” 34mm width versus the 36mm that Eclat have been using on their other rims, which helps cut down on material and weight as well.
The E440 rim comes in Black, Chrome and a wild Galactic Purple color with a weight of 15.52 oz. (440 Grams) and a $59.99 price tag through BMX shops and mail-orders like Source BMX now!
