Eclat have released the new Felix Prangenberg signature Creature Tire. Here’s a fresh promo video featuring Felix putting the tires to work out in the streets, along with some more details on the tire below! Check it!
“We’ve been working with our latest Éclat PRO Felix Prangenberg on a signature tire ever since he joined our ranks late last year. One of the most productive and progressive riders in the game, Felix was always adamant that this tire would be able to withstand his 24/7 riding regime.
The CREATURE tire is nothing short of a technical masterpiece. Combining the advanced technology and materials of our MIRAGE tire and the aggressive tread and larger size of our MORROW tire we were able to create what is, in our minds, the most advanced all-round BMX tire to date.
Manufactured by the master tire makers at MAXXIS, the CREATURE uses the highest quality 120tpi casing and a unique fast-rolling and grippy dual compound tread design. A tire that is designed to kill it on all surfaces and one that will be loved by all kinds of riders.” – Eclat

Check out the new Centric Pedals from Eclat…
The crew over at Eclat have released their new Centric Pedals for you to get your feet on. These pedals are made from injection molded nylon and fiberglass with a larger platform that removes the traditional 15mm pedal wrench slot between the pedal body and your crank arms, moving the pedals in closer while giving you a little more wiggle room. The body has a concave shape and plenty of reinforced molded pins for grip. Since there is no slot for a pedal wrench, the pedals are tightened with a 6mm allen key through the crank arm on the chromoly spindle, eliminating the need for a pedal wrench. Inside you can find loose ball bearings keeping the pedals spinning. The Centric pedals are available in Black only with a weight of 14.6 oz. (415 grams) through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Eclat worldwide now.

In a world of plastic pegs, there are still riders out there that prefer a metal peg. Eclat just dropped this new promo featuring Sam Chamberlain putting their new Dura Peg to work out in the streets from grinds to chings on curbs, ledges, pole jams and more. Sam puts these to good use, making for a real solid watch. Chec it!
“The ever creative Sam Chamberlain comes through with a promo showing what our new heavy-duty DURA Pegs were designed for.
A modern-day street peg with everything you need, and nothing that you don’t. The DURA Peg was designed to meet the demands of our team riders that like to put their pegs to war in the streets. Made 4130 heat treated Chromoly, the DURA peg features a thicker 3.5mm end and a longer 4.6″ length to give you plenty of peg to grind on during crooked grinds and hard spins. Simple CNC weight savings on the base save a few grams and a super slick ED coating keeps you sliding right out of the box. a peg might be a simple item but we put a lot of thought into this one and we could not be more stoked on our new street peg.” – Eclat

It’s not every day that we get a brand new Sean Burns video, but when one pops up, you know it’s going to be an absolute BANGER. Here’s his latest for Eclat that was filmed over the course of 2 years with Sean’s signature madman style of crazy gaps, roof drops and more that lead to getting hit by cars, a broken hand, sprained ankles, getting arrested, and breaking his spine. As expected, this is absolute madness that you’ll want to watch over and over again. Hit play and take in this MUST SEE!
Also, as many of you know, Sean had a serious crash that broke his back and required emergency surgery ( Sean Burns Spinal Surgery / Rehab Fund ). The other day he posted on Instagram showing he’s back on his feet and making some serious progress. Amazing considering there was a chance he wouldn’t walk again. Beyond stoked about that. Check out the Instagram post down below after you watch the video!
Don’t forget. If you can, check out Sean’s GoFundMe page for updates and to make a donation. We know things are tight for everyone right now, but anything helps. Even just sharing the link can do a ton!
“BURNS! Filmed over the past two years, ECLAT PRO and BMX street legend Sean Burns comes through with a banger filled video part of leather-clad roof drops, high-speed gaps, and full-throttle madness. Sean, unfortunately, was injured during the process of filming this video, and although he’s made a remarkable recovery and is making extreme progress, he still needs our help with his medical bills and rehab support. A link to his go-fund me can be found here. All the love and support you can give Sean would be greatly appreciated. Burns truly is a man of steel and we cant wait to see him back on the steed and eyeing up the next deadman roof gap in the near future…

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.
