Back In Black: 2019 Colony Eclipse 24

19 12 2018

Colony BMX just dropped the deets on their 2019 lineup and their 24″ freestyle machine, the Eclipse, is back in the lineup.

Departing from the somewhat flashy red colorway of 2018, 2019 sees Colony going back to their roots, so to speak, with a black colorway reminiscent of the look it sported when it debuted into the Colony lineup (in 2015).

Colony has stuck with the same geometry from previous years — why mess with a good thing,  right? — so no big surprises there.

What that means is a roomy 22″ top tube, a high new school bottom bracket height (13.75″) and a steeper-than-most head tube angle  (75.2 degrees). In other words, an extremely responsive ride that could be the right choice for a rider that is more park oriented (see full specs here).

I would be remiss if I also didn’t mention that the frame, fork and bars are full cro-mo.

Other notables?

170mm cranks and somewhat skinny tires (for this day and age) which clock in at a 24 X1.95″ width.

All in all, a good looking complete from the boys at Colony.
