Slayer BMX to launch as part of collaboration with Subrosa
Bike manufacturer celebrates 10th birthday by launching partnership with thrash giants Slayer
A range of Slayer branded bikes have been revealed by manufacturer Subrosa.
The Slayer Cradle To Grave range of bicycles will be available worldwide from October of this year, including a 20-inch BMX, a 26-inch cruiser and a 700cc fixed gear urban terrain hybrid.
Subrosa will also launch a limited edition Thunderbeast X Slayer frame and a Pivotal seat.
Subrosa say: “We couldn't think of a bigger way to celebrate our 10th year as a brand than teaming up with Slayer to create some of the most badass BMX bikes ever seen.
"BMX has always had love for metal. Whether it’s in the headphones of riders ripping through town, background music during a contest run, or the soundtrack to some of the most famous and influential video parts, Slayer has been a huge piece of it all.
"We are humbled and honoured to be teaming up with Slayer on this project. We wanted to create bikes that BMX riders could use and abuse, and we had to do justice to Slayer and their fans by creating a look that would represent the band, and stand out from anything we’ve done before."
The firm adds: "The Cradle To Grave theme in this collaboration project will embrace audiences from all ages because once you are a Subrosa or a Slayer fan, you are a fan for life."
