Freecoaster technology has been an evolving topic of focus for several years now. This year though, instead of brands throwing their logo onto an existing hub design, éclat and ezra have attempted to remold the idea of a freecoaster. éclat's uses pawl mechanism driver with three varying slack preferences. And if that wasn't enough, ezra's new freecoaster offers the rider to choice to go either freecoaster or cassette-style. (Like the ACS freecoaster of old, but much lighter.) Both are now on the verge of a release date.
