Eclat Overguard

Eclat_overguard_set_10-960x526

As part of their Assembled series, Éclat dropped this feature on their brand new Overguard universal hub guard that we featured on The Merged this time last year.  The Overguard is a drive-side compatible hub guard that fits over the dropout instead of between the dropout and the hub, eliminating compatibility issues; much like GSport’s Uniguard, although the Overguard looks to offer more comprehensive protection at the rear from steep icepicks in comparison.  This hub guard is left and right, drive or non-drive-side compatible on most (if not all) frames and hubs available right now and comes with anti-spin allen bolts that thread into the guard itself.

Eclat Overguard Hub Guard

WMT’s premium brand Eclat dropped these photos via this The Union exclusive demonstrating their newest offering to the peg wielding maniacs out there; the Overguard.  This 4140 chromoly hub guard is simply mounted to the outside of your dropout to protect your frame as well as solving a whole bunch of hub/hub guard compatibility issues that some others have; especially when it comes to drive side guards. It also features anti-slip dropout bolts for both left or right hand sides as well as being drive or non-drive side compatible.  It’s good to see companies thinking outside the box whilst making things simpler for everyone.  The Overguard is set to hit shelves later his year so watch this space for more info.
