Lean back to utilize the extension and blast through any whoop section or long rutted & bumpy straightaway with more leverage on the back of the bike. The EXT’s also provide safety and support, helping to prevent ankle injuries if/when you happen to case a creek bottom or other hard g-outs. These pegs also feature their patented adjustable height, traction, and camber options and are designed to shed mud and debris without compromising strength.
WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
Valley Cycle Park 1974. Open Pro. I’m on the far right on my CZ400, snaring a holie against Jim O’Neal and Randy Berkley to my left. After the first turn I got blitzed by the Maico’s heading up the long uphill.
