Brit Pete Sawyer is on the international Pro team at Wethepeople – his new signature line of ‘Sterling’ products for the brand comprises bar with cutting guides, frame with top gusset for extra front-end strength and low key, on-point graphics, and forks with unique blade end caps that are mirrored in the chain and seat stays of the frame.
As the kind of rider who likes to be in control of his bike, his riding style and the way he formulates lines and video parts, it’s no surprise that he wanted to be involved in the design of his frame, and the geometry is all to his request. Pete is also sponsored by Vans, for whom he has been riding since 2012, Kunstform and Merritt BMX, for whom he has signature mushroom-style grips made with a soft kraton rubber compound with easy to remove flanges.
Born on 1st August 1989 in Liverpool, Pete is a street rider at heart, and says his favourite set-up is a good flat bar and manny pad spot. However, he doesn’t look out of a place on a ramp set-up, and it’s safe to say that as long as he is riding somewhere, he’ll be happy.
Not really bothering with competitions, Pete’s incredible street riding can be seen in product promos and web edits, such as his 2014 welcome part for Kunstform filmed in Stuttgart, or Wethepeople’s ‘Rain or Shine’, filmed by Peter Adam.
