Curious what Dan Coller is running for a setup these days? The crew at Eclat caught up with Dan to take a closer look at his current Kink Contender setup loaded up with Eclat parts! You can check out a whole bunch of photos and a full parts list over on the Eclat website now! Looks like a machine that’s ready to take a beating to us.
Now that the news that Felix Prangenberg has joined the Eclat Pro team is out, we figured it wouldn’t be long before we got a look at Felix’s current setup with some new Eclat goodies mixed in on it. There’s a new Bike Check that popped up on the Wethepeople site today filled with photos and a full parts list that you can check out right here! No prototype parts on this rig, but we would imagine we’ll be seeing some of that pop up in the near future.
Here is a bit of news we’re honestly surprised hasn’t happened until now! After a number of years on the Wethepeople Pro team, Felix Prangenberg has also been added to the Eclat Pro team! We’ve been waiting for this one to happen for quite some time since it made a lot of sense with Felix being apart of the Wethepeople team and so close with all the guys behind both WTP and Eclat. Felix has been full factory for Wethepeople for the past few years, running all of their parts, so we don’t foresee this changing a whole lot for Felix beyond having the option to run a few more dialed parts from Eclat and go on more trips between both teams. Either way, this is some great news for Felix and the Felix fans that will undoubtedly see more of him in the future. We will also be keeping our eye out for some signature products from Eclat as well, since he’ll need a few things to go with this Pathfinder line from WTP. Check out the short but sweet welcome video to make it official, then get a few words about the news below!
““The word “family” is thrown around in BMX so much these days that it almost feels like it’s lost its true meaning and become a cliché word to push the idea of a connection between the brand and rider.
To everyone here at éclat, there is no shadow of a doubt that Felix Prangenberg really is a part of our family. He’s not just someone we’ve known for a long time and hang out with every week, but he’s someone who believes in the same vision and core principles that keep our brand alive and push us every day. We’ve been able to watch first-hand Felix grow from a relatively unheard-of talented German prodigy to one of the most progressive BMX riders in the world. Felix being a PRO on our sister brand Wethepeople for the past 5 years, he’s always felt part of éclat despite never being officially on the team. As Felix focussed more and more on putting out incredible video parts and pushing the realms of street riding and being good friends with many of the guys on the team already, he was feeling more like part of the family every day. This made the move to welcome him to the ranks of the Eclat PRO team a natural progression of our friendship rather than a swift decision to add a hot new rider. As one year comes to a close, a new one begins, and we couldn’t be more hyped to have Felix officially part of the Eclat team heading into 2020. Now the newest member of a heavy-hitting team containing some of the most legendary and talented riders in BMX, Felix has found his rightful home.” – Dave Paterson / Eclat
The Ty Morrow signature Morrow Tire from Eclat has arrived. Above is a short but sweet promo video featuring Ty putting the tire to work out in the streets. After you check out the video, learn more about the tire down below, along with a look at a few photos giving you a good look at what this tire has to offer. Available through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Eclat BMX worldwide now.
“As soon as Ty Morrow joined the Éclat family in 2017, we started work on his signature tire. Creating a tire that could hold up to one of the most powerful and demanding riders in the game was the ultimate test in design and allowed us to really push the boundaries of how dialed a BMX tire could become.
Working together with one of the best tire manufacturers in the world, the Morrow Tire features a fast-rolling, but incredibly grippy tread pattern that was designed to shred it on all terrains. We used the best quality rubber compound available and backed it up with a high-performance tire casing to ensure that the tire could hold up to huge impacts, grind damage hangups and just about anything that could happen whilst out in the streets.
Available in 2.40″ in Black and Forest Green.

We honestly thought Lewis Mills was already on the Eclat Pro team, but I guess we were wrong! In some less than surprising (other than not realizing he wasn’t Pro already) news, Eclat have given Lewis the very well deserved bump on up to the Pro team! As you already know, Lewis has been on absolute FIRE the past two years and it’s safe to say he is only getting started. Check out the official word below, then re-watch his Eclat video from earlier this year that is an absolute BANGER and well worth another look! Otherwise, expect to see Lewis absolutely slaying street spots in the future!
“Lewis Mills was always destined for the PRO team, we knew this early on when we saw how he rode in the flesh, his technical ability on a bike is out of hand. In the past few years, he has proven his ability to shine and ride with the best, so there were no real questions when it came to making the bump up.
Congratulations Lew, it’s PRO time.” – Eclat

You can check out a bunch of photos, along with a full parts list and more over on the Eclat website now!
Looks like a dialed machine to us!
When the Eclat team get together for a trip, you know it’s going to be a good one. The crew recently made their way to Athens, Greece to put the endless spots to proper use! Hit play to check out banger after banger!
“It may be famed for being one of the oldest cities in the world, dating back 7000 years, but Athens, Greece isn’t just dusty cobbles and philosophers in sandals. We sent DIG video guy Peter Adam off with Eclat’s Bruno Hoffmann, Lewis Mills, Alex Kennedy and Jordan OKane meeting up with locals, including Eclat teammate Jason Eustathiou, to sample the city’s best spots. Needless to say with this crew things got heated, fast. Sit back and enjoy 9 minutes of high grade from some of the best to grace a bike.” – DIG
We got a look at the new Seismic hub a few weeks back, now it looks like Eclat have their new cassette hub ready for you to get your hands on. This hub utilizes the same style internals as a DT Swiss hub that help make one real dialed hub. Hit play and get a look inside.
“A quick look around the new Seismic hub from Eclat, featuring their Toothed Coupling System, that has been inspired by systems used on high-end road and mountain bikes, but now squeezed in to BMX cassette hub with a 14mm axle and a 9t driver. Get more info in our product feature and then bag one of those puppies.” – DIG
