Published May 11, 2016Thinking of how to head out to one of Slayer's upcoming gigs in the most twisted, slaytanic way possible? Well, the thrash greats have given you a co-signed option in the form of their new signature line of bikes.
The already well-merchandised metal outfit have partnered up with bike company Subrosa to produce the "Cradle to Grave" series of bikes, which comprises three BMX frames and one Urban Terrain Bike model. These all come adorned with blood red paint jobs, with the band's infamous sword-and-eagle logo grafted onto the front of the frame.
While that sounds pretty evil, it should be noted that the pedal-less, 12-inch balance BMX model (pictured above) is described as offering "a safe, fun, and stylish journey" for young riders.
"BMX has always had love for metal," Subrosa brand manager Ryan Sher said in a statement. "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."
The bikes are set to hit retailers this October, meaning Slayer fans of all ages can expect to bust out mandatory Suicide no-handers, aggression-fuelled Decades, and criminally insane Crankflips by the fall. If you're looking to show no mercy to the streets on a custom Slayer bike, you can find out more info on the frames over here.
Interestingly, these aren't the only Slayer-sponsored modes of transportation over the years. Several band-themed skateboards have popped up, while a truly bone-chilling cross-promotion with Scion in 2014 delivered us the "Slayer Mobile."
As previously reported, Slayer just announced another leg of dates behind last year's Repentless album. The trip will find them hitting various Canadian venues with Anthrax and Death Angel. You'll find the details over here.
