While there are plenty of generic, “order from the catalog in black, blue, and red” companies and products out there today, there are still the amazing companies of BMX who are doing cool things and genuinely trying to do something different and progressive. Let’s take a look at some of the products that have caught my eye and are sure to be seen on plenty of bikes sometime in 2013.
Eclat’s Blind Freecoaster
Breaking away from traditional freecoaster designs, Eclat has been working on their design from the ground up. I’m no product designer by any means and won’t pretend to know what I’m talking about technically speaking. However, there are plenty of freecoaster users that have high hopes for this project and it looks like Eclat’s finally nailed down a unique design that can handle the abuse of freestyle riding and still roll smooth. These things are still not available, but you can pre-order one from Albe’s.
