BDCW Traction Peg for Africa Twin vs. Stock Peg

WHY EXPERTS LOVE THEM (and everyone else needs them)—

We’ve long been fans of oversized footpegs. The additional control and the increased comfort they give you while standing make the design a no-brainer for any serious rider. BDCW’s NEW TRACTION Footpegs are designed for those riders who prefer to tackle difficult terrain in all conditions. Sharp teeth greatly enhance traction in wet and muddy conditions while minimizing wear and tear on riding boots. For enhanced traction, threaded spikes are supplied to provide the ultimate in wet weather traction.

We have no idea why Honda choose to rob the XR50 parts bin for footpegs for their new premier adventure bike, but after one ride and you will KNOW the stockers need to be replaced! Our footpegs are a MUST upgrade for the new Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L!!

Thank you Kyle from Backcountry Adventure Motorsports (B.A.M.) for the Youtube review!



BDCW’s Traction Footpegs are available for these bikes:  

  • Honda CRF1000L—Africa Twin CRF1000L (2016-2017)
  • These do NOT fit the 2018+ models of the Africa Twin and ADV Sport - see this link for those models




It is the design of the stock Honda footpeg mounts that has made the development of these pegs especially challenging—both the stock and other aftermarket pegs place the tread of the pegs over an inch away from the framewhere the rider’s feet and ankles naturally want to be and where they NEED to be to control of the bike. Other oversized peg designs have not addressed this challenge causing the riders to stand bowlegged with less control since they cannot grip the frame with their ankles. It has taken some time but we have developed a very UNIQUE solution to this issue.

Additionally, it is not unusual for OTHER oversized pegs to stick out beyond where the riders boots naturally gravitate, causing a hazard of catching on obstacles or grounding out in asphalt corners. Our design extends the tread TOWARD the frame of the bike where it should be—greatly increasing comfort and control.


Enlarged Size
Our pegs are 2.5-inches wide x 4-inches long and only 6 oz each in weight. They greatly improves control of bike—its like adding power steering!

Greater Comfort
Standing up is so much less fatiguing with the large platform distributing your weight.

Optimized Ergonomics
Because we have extended the tread of the footpeg toward the frame of the bike, it fully supports the riders boot in the correct position. Other footpegs can force you to stand bowlegged while riding—reducing control and increase fatigue.

Ultimate in Traction and Control
Thread in spikes provide additional traction in wet or challenging conditions. These can be removed to reduce boot wear.

Superior Material and Design
These pegs are milled out of tough aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. We have added traction cleats around perimeter of peg and removal threaded spikes for the ultimate in traction and control (removable to reduce boot wear).

Easy Installation
Install hardware provided, 5 minutes to install.

Made in the U.S.
No bones about it, we manufacture all of our Black Dog products right here in the U.S.—supporting the local craftsmen, materials and machinery. We have world class manufacturers in our own back yard and we are committed to supporting our local economy which is extremely important to us. We feel supporting the U.S. manufacturing base has never been more important.

Tested and Trusted Worldwide
All of our own products are rigorously tested on our personal bikes BEFORE they’re released. Our innovative and rugged designs are used throughout the world—a fact that we’re very proud of. We make no pretense that we’re the cheapest, but, you can be sure that BDCW products are the best made, and that we stand behind them.



 "I received my Black Dog foot pegs yesterday, and they are amazing! This is the 3rd set of pegs for my Africa Twin, and these are (hands down) the best! The fit is perfect and the design can't be beat."—Kim Kelley

"The pegs are awesome! You nailed their design with using part of the mount as the platform"—Kyle Moore, Prescott, AZ

    Great footpegs

    Posted by KiwiMark on Apr 1st 2018

    My Africa Twin came with 'my first footpegs' for a childs size foot. These BDCW footpegs are adult sized and give me confidence when standing on the pegs. I like having a good base to stand on and these pegs are great.

    The first update I did to my Africa Twin! Much more control of the bike while standing. They really hit on a big design feature by keeping the peg surface close to the bike! Most of the time standing my feet and boots are pressed against the bike.

    Best upgrade I can find to the stock pegs. Noticed immediately that with a size 13, I can get much better toe control and directional input with these units. nicely thought out and executed.
