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've taken our Platform Footpegs another step forward in our exclusive footpeg line-up. By utilizing the same size and shape as our popular Platform Footpegs and adding enhancements for better wet weather traction, these peg designs "knock it out of the park" according to one of our trusted testers, Jason Houle. Our new TRACTION Footpegs are sure to please.
We've opened up the void areas to allow mud, snow and debris to flow through; changed the teeth from flat to a pointed style; and most importantly, used a thread in "traction spike" to ensure maximum grip on the pegs in wet conditions. 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 be 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 will be much more level in improve 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.

NOTE: The standard KTM pegs used since 1998 do not fit this bike. We are designing new pegs to fit this model but it will take some time.
