Machete Bikes has leaked some pictures of their newest prototype, the Slayer Handlebar.

Resembling the Redline 4-Piece bars that released in the 1990s, the Machete Slayer Handlebars are made for fixed gear bikes and uses fully heat treated bars adding optimal strength (with 1.4 inch tubing).

Using a 4.3 inch rise with 29.5 inches in width, making the bars easier to pull up and comfort while cruising was the key points for the Slayer Bars.

The Machete Slayer bars are going through testing as we write this by Corey San Agustin, Antonyo Worthe and Chu. Of course, things could change after the testing process, but we will keep you updated.
