A Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) exclusive design
The new Black Dog Cycle Works TRACTION Footpegs are designed to answer the call for 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 while standing. For enhanced traction, threaded spikes are supplied to provide the ULTIMATE in wet weather traction.
We are not quite sure what the engineers at KTM were thinking with the stock footpegs for the KTM 390 Adventure? The are tilted extremely far forward making standing and controlling the bike a huge chore, not to mention tiring on the riders ankles. We are guessing they were just moved over from the 390 Duke? BDCW has addressed this issue by making our Traction Pegs FLAT and LARGE - providing an excellent platform to stand and control the bike. The Traction Pegs we designed specifically for this model are slightly smaller than our standard Traction Pegs for the KTM, measuring 4" long. We have also moved the placement back a bit so the 2.5" width has the same distance to the shifter and brake lever, providing plenty of room to access the foot controls.
These Traction Pegs also have large void areas to allow mud, snow and debris to flow through. The pointed teeth on the tread of the pegs provide plenty of traction and more traction is available by threading in the "traction spikes" into each peg (included). Another innovative feature is that the threaded spikes are removable to reduce wear on the soles of your boot when not in wet conditions and are replaceable!
NUTS, BOLTS AND BENEFITS
Our pegs are 2.5-inch wide x 4-inch long and weight only 6 oz. each. This creates a LARGE, STABLE platform from which to control the bike. They greatly improves control of bike—it’s like adding power steering!
As with our Platform footpegs, these pegs are 1/2 " lower than stock. It may not sound like much but feedback confirms it is noticeable.
Better Riding Position
For some reason the stock pegs have an extreme angle forward, making for a very awkward riding position when standing. The Black Dog Traction Pegs provide a FLAT platform on which to stand and control the bike, improving the riders position and posture.
Standing up is so much less fatiguing with the large platform distributing your weight. Enjoy the rider longer!
More Open Design
By creating larger voids in the peg platform, this new design allows mud, snow and debris to flow through the pegs to keep the treads cleaner. We've also enlarged the bottom of the openings to aid in clearing the pegs.
Superior Material and Design
These pegs are milled out of tough aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. We've added TRACTION cleats around perimeter of the peg and removable threaded spikes for the ULTIMATE in traction and control.
More Traction, Less Boot Wear
The threaded spikes are removable (and replaceable) to reduce boot wear for riding in less demanding conditions.
We are the only company we're aware of who provide an special “installation pin” which greatly simplifies installation. We also provide replacement cotter pins—no trips to the hardware store required. 5 minute install time.
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 backyard and are committed to supporting our local economy, something that's 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.
