What an honor it has been for us to team up with Slayer to produce some of the best looking complete bikes of all time! I know, I’m a bit biased in this case, but hey, I don’t think you can argue that they do look amazing. We’ve made big bikes before, and we decided to bring them back recently. Check out the first release of our new Urban Terrain Bikes, and part of our Slayer collab, the Subrosa Slayer 700c UTB.
As you read above UTB stands for Urban Terrain Bike. Think city commuter bike with an emphasis on shortcuts. Sometimes you need to rip across town in a hurry and a BMX bike just isn’t practical. This bike will have you hauling ass while still being built tough enough to hop up and down a few stairs, cut across a dirt lot, or slice city blocks in half down alley ways.
Enter Slayer… What can really be said about these dudes. They played the music they were into, they loved, and didn’t change from it at all. Let’s just run down some facts to get you up to speed. Slayer is credited with being one of the first 4 big Thrash Metal bands, has released 12 albums, and has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. They have won multiple Grammy Awards, Kerrang! Awards, and have numerous gold records worldwide. To this day, I still can’t believe we were able to create these bikes with them.
Now, back to the UTB. The reason our UTB line can handle shortcuts is that it blurs the lines between a commuter bike and a BMX bikes. A full chromoly frame, fork, and bars allow the bike to flex enough to absorb bumps in cracks in the road on long distance rides, while still maintaining strength. I know BMX riders don’t like the word flex, but it is necessary, especially over the course of 5 miles or more.
The parts package is equally impressive, and actually includes a bunch of our aftermarket products. Those include the Subrosa High Life stem, Shadow Conspiracy Interlock chain and Ravager pedals, and Chula grips.
These were produced in limited numbers and are selling out fast! Check out the details below, then check out our dealer locator page to find the Subrosa dealer nearest you to and check one out in person. Chances are you’ll leave the store with one.
