Just so you guys know, it likely wasn't a lie, it was likely an estimated time of release, but perhaps production was slowed down, maybe they found a flaw and had to work it out. We don't know, but seriously, don't call it a lie when you don't know. You could try asking them directly instead of "they lied" etc on a forum.

Eclat can fuck themselves for being pricks about it. They have everyone on a leash. It could be the best freecoaster in the world and I wouldn't buy it because how they play us so hard .

I like Eclat , don't get me wrong. But they fucked everyone over on this , lost some cookies from my plate...

So did gsport but I dont see everyone hating on that. Hub has to be somewhat ready because its whats being sold on their Envy complete. May be a later release date but Im sure it'll be available for purchase. Whether it is or not, theres plenty of other well proven coasters on the market now.
As for dropping in Oct, we still have half a month left to see if its happening.

It's not Eclat's fault. Awhile back I remember they ran into patenting issues, so they might have had to redesign something because it was too similar to something that was already patented, and because of a redesign, had to retest it all over again to ensure it would be a great product.

Just speculation though, idk if that's true at all but just how it seems to me.

Im honestly glad that i didnt wait to buy it. I was willing to spend the 200€ it will most likely cost, but the dropping date fucked it. I just bought a federal v3 for 90 xD.

I'm personally not worried about how long it takes. Its a hub. Hubs have a LOT of CNCing, design, and parts that go into them. They cant just shit out parts by the second. haha PLUS, the longer it takes, the better quality it is (generally) so if they take their time, idc.

i agree, but id say the release date was a bit annoying. theyre about 2 years off the original release date when people had paid for a preorder as well. I went for the ezra, which i now regret, but am still happier i didnt preorder the blind.
And one can only hope more time would mean better quality. While thats makes sense, its definitely not always the case. fingers crossed

for the record, i'm the only person who used the word "lied" but i didn't actually say they lied. i said, "if they lied." also, they didn't call it an ETA... so if the hub doesn't "drop" in october, it would be hard to say they told the truth. sorry, didn't mean to get all technical, i just felt like your comment was aimed at me somewhat.

Bummer for those who preordered it, but I just want to point out Shadow as an example. They "had the karl poynter coaster almost ready for release" for something like 2 years, (showing a picture of it an interbike but not showing the internals) claiming all new internals that were (secret for now), and then suddenly he was off the team. They never released the coaster they apparently had in the works with these fancy new internals, the second Karl was off Shadow, it was like they scrapped the whole project. It took them something like a year plus to drop a new KHE clone.

The Ezra came out shortly after Karl was off Shadow and on Ezra, leading me to believe (especially based on what I heard from someone who talked to Karl) that Shadow didn't actually have some elaborate design in the works at all, and that Karl apparently rode an Odyssey Reloader (similar to KHE guts) with a Shadow shell. The only other thing I could think of would be that Karl himself held any design patents etc, and brought it to Ezra who released it. Now that Karl is on Profile, perhaps he brought those internal designs there and had Profile help redesign it?

Now if Shadow had the patent or Patent pending on some new internals, why did they drop a KHE clone? Anyone else see what I see in that they must not have had something new in the works, or it was a horrid design they scrapped?

Not trying to bash shadow or Karl, but this is something almost everyone ignored, and here Eclat is having release challenges and some kids are losing their minds about it.
