Mongoose today announced that Maxine ‘Max’ Mayfield from the Netflix original series Stranger Things will be roaming the streets of Hawkins, Indiana on a special edition Mongoose. In addition, fans of the hit show will be able to purchase the bike at Target starting June 30th, just before the launch of Season 3 on July 4th.
*UPDATE 6/20/19: the Max bike is available in-store at select Target stores around the U.S.*
After receiving creative direction from the Netflix team, Mongoose quickly got to work sourcing period-specific bike parts from local thrift stores and garage sales to erect the bikes used for filming Season 3. All the bikes seen on the new season were sourced and assembled by the Mongoose team in Madison, Wisconsin. Once the set bikes were finished and shipped to Netflix for filming, the team shifted direction and began working on a replica model of Max’s bike which will be available for purchase at Target and target.com!
The Max bike features tons of rad elements straight out of the 1980’s. From its replica frame and fork to the classic Mongoose pad set. Plus, the Max bike is loaded with show-inspired details, including the two rear axle pegs (where eleven rides along), a headlamp for exploring the upside-down, and more!
The Max bikes will come standard with a single speed drivetrain making it easy to use and maintain, while the front and rear caliper brakes provide secure stopping power. Whether on the way to school, off to grab the high score at the arcade, or on a mission to save friends, fans will be able to bring the world of the Netflix original series Stranger Things to life with this special edition bike.
The Mongoose Max bike will be available exclusively at Target and will retail for $219.99.
