  1. Part 5 of the Éclat Natives series with Geoff Slattery. In March 2013 we set about filming and directing a six part series focusing on six individuals called Natives...

    They are Nathan Williams, Shane Weston, Geoff Slattery, Darryl Tocco, Chester Blacksmith and Sean Burns. This, the fifth part is with Geoff Slattery.

    We visit his hometown, see where he grew up and ask him a few questions on life, BMX and the destruction of his locals trails. Geoff was injured (as you can tell) during the filming of this but still managed to squeeze a quick session in.

  2. When you say the name Darryl Tocco, you think of a few things; PRO bike rider, accomplished filmmaker and world class air miler. Darryl is also the perfect candidate to discuss and open up to what he thinks about BMX in general, the internet and growing up inside a BMX industry as both a pro rider and a film maker.

    Natives Part 3 explores in brief the background of Darryl Tocco, it also verges on his likes and dislikes in BMX. He also does what he does every single day; riding his bike.

  3. Darryl Tocco rides brakes, he needs a solid lever that fells right.

    The Sniper lever was designed from the very beginning to be the ultimate brake lever in all senses. The shape of the lever itself was sculpted for the perfect reach, with a slimmer centre section and then wider at the end where the finger pulls. This improves the ergonomic feeling of the lever and therefore the force you can comfortably apply on it. The backside of the lever is flat, so that when the lever is pulled tight, there is still maximum clearance to the knuckles of the other fingers. We used a cold forging process for the lever part as this offers increased strength characteristics over casting.

    The clamp is hinged to allow easier positioning on the handlebar, and particular focus was made on making this fixing as strong as possible, as this is often the area of weakness on other brake levers, with threads stripping out.  We used a crmo bolt and barrel set up as it is a stronger material and in using the barrel rather than a fixed thread the bolt can align itself into the perfect clamping position. Ultimately, this means when you tighten this lever on your handlebar, it's going to stay put! The main part of the clamp is die cast 6061 alloy and the lower hinged section is cold forged for increased strength. The pivot pin is also made from crmo to ensure the hinge is as strong as possible.

    To keep the lever pivoting smoothly we use a high quality two piece brass bushing which is machined to the perfect tolerance so that the lever clamps firmly but at the same time can hinge easily.  We felt this was very important, as it is the feeling you get through your finger which reassures you how strong your brake is, and that you can trust it to hold when you need it. 

    We felt the lever deserved similar attention on the barrel adjuster, so we designed our own shape that blended perfectly with the lever, and used a CNC finish to ensure a precise fit and function. The final details were added with laser etched éclat logos to the clamp lever end.
