Eclipse Preview

Hello! I’m happy to introduce Eclipse, with the help of independent tester Dennis Vilensky.

Eclipse is a totally new flywheel geometry which completely encloses the dart, while still fitting in a standard flywheel cage envelope. This allows it to hit Ultrastock velocities without any more build difficulty than a standard Stryfe.

Eclipse works by compressing the dart evenly from all sides, rather than just the top and bottom. This makes the forces on the dart almost pure hoop stress, which a tube is much better at withstanding than crush stress. This creates more normal force between the dart and the wheels, more grip, and much more velocity.
