Eclat Blind Hub Updated Internals

After the unveiling of the Eclat Cortex clutch coaster a few days ago a lot of inquisitive souls were asking ‘what happened to the Blind hub?’  While it was always public the Blind would carry on being made, what wasn’t made known was that Eclat were updating/simplifying the internals.  A few people had issues with the large circular spring that held the pawls down so it has been replaced by three seperate coiled springs, one for each individual pawl, that slot into the adjoining pawl housing to hold them down.  Having personally tested one of these with the updated internals I can say, even as a huge coaster sceptic, that this thing is solid.  Photo pinched from The Union.
