What you see here are a prototype set of Raptor’s new titanium foot pegs, sent to RUST for early testing. The production items will vary slightly.
Initial impressions are really positive. The foot position was really very comfortable and both braking and gear selector seemingly within easier reach – perhaps on account of the generous sizing (59mm wide and 88mm length). The teeth were also very good and although it was pretty muddy on our test ride the grip was excellent – although I’m glad I have boots with replaceable soles because there is a minor trade-off for the increased comfort, ankle safety and grip, and that’s wear on the boot sole.
What you can see in these images is a forward and upward angle on the pegs. This was not intentional – it seems Husky uniquely have a groove set in their OEM pegs to allow them to set level. Raptor will now put this groove into their pegs, but at the time of testing these prototypes that was a new discovery! The curious thing was I actually liked this cant to the pegs, it worked for me. But other testers naturally wanted to return to a flatter peg, so that is how these will be produced. Being Titainium (G5 6al-4v) these are very light, a set weighing just 265g including the stainless steel springs.
Here at RUST we’ve run a set of Raptor Titanium pegs on our TE300 and FE350 for about three seasons now, so we know they’re strong and long-lasting, while of course offering the best grip. For the rider who wants ultimate performance this is the ultimate footpeg.
