Here’s a little sneak peek we caught while scrolling through Instagram. Dave Patterson over at Eclat dropped a look at what Eclat is working on that has a few interesting things packed into it. First is the obvious, the tire says Tubeless which is interesting to see since we’ve seen tubeless tires / rims done on MTB and everything, but it has never really worked for BMX. There have been attempts in the past, but it never caught on. However, they may have found a way to make it work. The valve stem with the lock ring would hold the valve stem in place and keep everything sealed up, but we’re not sure what is going on in the inside.
Next is the rim, which we’re not sure if it’s modified to make tubeless tires work or if it’s all in the tire, but that could be interesting. Then there’s also the camouflage color that looks real interesting as well. Obviously that one would be for the brakeless guys out there, but we could see that one selling pretty well, actually.
We don’t know much for what’s going on exactly, but if Dave is leaking this one online, it’s safe to say that it has to be close to being released.
Or, this could be some early April Fools prank that came a month early… Talk about a curveball thought!
What do you think about this? Would you be interested in trying out tubeless tires or are you okay with sticking with the classic tube style? Do you have any ideas on what’s going on? Any questions? Let us know what’s on your mind in the comments down below!
