The Mad Max bars have been apart of Wethepeople‘s line since 2008 to cater to Max Gaertig’s style with a towering (at the time) 8.7″ rise. Not a lot has changed with the bars since, but for this year Max and Wethepeople decided it was time to sit down and revamp them to something new. Here we have a sneak peek look at just what they cooked up. These updated bars are made from 4130 “M2″ chromoly with a full liquid post-weld heat-treatment, a rise of 9.5″, width of 30”, 11-degrees of backsweep, 1.5-degrees of upsweep and a weight of 1.8 lbs. The 2015 Mad Max bars will be available in gloss black, translucent green, translucent blue and black Titan later this month.

“Wet days, damp concrete, red bricks and grey skies. Wind in your face, waiting for the sun that never shows, heading for shelter and flicking the vickers up above. Its what we do over here. It’s rain or shine.
Featuring Moritz Nussbaumer, Oli Landgraf, Dima Prykhodko, Peter Sawyer, Mike Curley and Max Gaertig.
Filmed in Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Cologne and Bonn by Peter Adam. Edited by Peter Adam.

It’s long been established that Max Gaertig has tailwhips on lock, but this drives the point home even more than ever. Basically if some other rider could throw a barspin in any given part of a trick or line, Max can fit a whip in and make it look casual.
