A Footpeg with a Proven Purpose.
Better peg traction & much improved comfort while not changing the characteristic of how the peg feels.
The Impact Moto Peg, Patent # US 6390488, accomplishes this by isolating the cleat from touching metal to metal, resulting in the rider experiencing less vibration and abuse transferred to the foot. With the Impact Moto Peg your foot will stay planted, while your feet, ankles and knees feel better. This adds up to a better day on the bike.
How does it perform?
Proofed out in the notoriously choppy, teeth chattering, West Rim in Southern Utah, a trail that is initially so harsh with slick rock ripples many find an alternate route to the “good stuff.” This was the perfect proving ground for the Impact Moto Peg, as often riders feet vibrate or bounce off of the pegs from the continual chatter. With the Impact Moto Peg the harshness of the rocks was squelched, the riders feet stayed on the pegs, and brutality of the notorious chop tamed. Further the slick rock drops provided the perfect opportunity to test the how the Impact Moto Peg performed on massive impacts. Our test riders repeatedly launched big rocks to flat landings, noticing none of the sharp pain or sting shooting through their feet to their lower back as they would with any other peg.
What is the Impact Moto Peg made out of?
Both the cleat and the base are made out of 7075 T6 aluminum, providing the best structural integrity and wear resistance. The cleat is 77mm long by 58mm wide to provide additional support for your foot. 13 5mm Inserts are positioned for optimal traction and wear resistance. The base is shot peened and anodized, while the cleat is hard anodized for wear resistance. The cleat is isolated from touching metal to metal through our base elastomer on the bottom, and cup elastomers on top. 10.9 bolts secure the cleat to the base, making the Impact Moto Peg not only the best performing, but the strongest aluminum peg on the market.
Absorbs vibration and abuse.
The elastomer absorbs vibration allowing your feet to remain better planted on the pegs. High-frequency abuse like spikes, jolts, and bumps are also dramatically reduced through the cushion of the elastomer.
A combination of our tooth profile coupled with minimized vibration, and larger platform (77mm x 58mm,) literally grabs hold of the bottom of your boot.
Hard Anodized 7075 T6 Aluminum
Provides exceptional construction, strength and wear resistance.
Orange, Red, or Blue to suit you.
All Impact Moto Pegs have a black body with either orange, red or blue elastomers of your choice to suit your personal touch.
I’ve ridden and raced a lot of bikes a lot of miles ( most recently across Peru chasing the Dakar ) .. from the old XR600’s and CR500’s to the new 300’s/450’s and 500exc’s. One thing has never changed.. bikes vibrate. Newer bikes may have counterbalancers, digital injection, and fancy mapping, but they still shake! I’ve run flexx bars for years, but only recently got onboard with their new impact pegs- While you can adjust the force you put on your bars through different angles or profiles.. you cannot really adjust how much weight you put on your pegs ( unless you can ride standing on alternating legs 😀 ). I ride standing 95% of the time.. meaning I have all my weight on my feet and pegs all the time! The difference in these pegs and the vibration they absorb before it gets into your soles ( and then transmitted to the balls of your feet and your calves ) is night and day! If you ever doubted their efficacy, you only need to take your foot of the peg and lean the sole of your boot on the side of your engine or frame and feel the battle going on between all the metal in your engine that your missing out on! Stop thinking about it and just get a set.. you’ll never look back! Flexx bars and these impact pegs make 10 hours of abuse on the bike feel like a walk in the park, and don’t leave you regretting pulling your boots on every day after!
I have a 2019 ktm 500 exc and was looking to upgrade the pegs. after installing a set of fasst flex bars with impressive results I thought I would give Jason at Fasst a call, he answered all my questions assured me I would notice a difference and placed my order, great guy!. Thought I would put these pegs to the test on my favorite narly single track in castac CA. With my Wingman riding a 2018 450 exc with stock pegs. After about 30 miles we switched bikes and right away I missed my Flexx handle bars " he had stock KTM" so then I compared the feel of the stock pegs with the moto impact pegs. A little more vibration but not that big of a difference. So we switched bikes back, I'm now back on my 500 and right after I took off and hit some narly stuff I could feel the difference. Not as jolting to your feet, knees, back and neck. I'll be honest it's very suttle but they work. I'm 57 years old and My though about these pegs is that if you plan on riding into your 70s any less wear n tear on your body is well worth the investment, if you haven't bought the bars yet do it right n buy both👍
As soon as I started riding with the Impact Moto Peg I immediately noticed the foot peg is incredibly comfortable, eliminating almost all of the vibration jolts directed to my feet. The Impact Peg also improved my cornering and positioning on the bike as my feet were more comfortable and stayed where I put them on the peg. This further helped with bike control and conserving energy, allowing me to go farther and faster in my races!
Recently we took on another project w/ a KTM 350exc. I have been running Flexxbars for the past 3 years, so I knew I'd want to run them on the new bike. I'm real picky w/ how the cockpit is set up & how the suspension feels. So first things first, Handlebars, grips, seat & foot pegs. I used the same bend Flexxbars that I had on my 450. same grips & same brand of seat. Its all familiar to me & it helps me get comfy quicker on the new bike. This project was to be more of an ADV/dualsport bike that was off-road worthy. I didn't want a razor sharp foot peg, but something comfortable w/ good grip. I saw a picture of these on a buddies IG & had to try them! They looked like exactly what I was looking for. I reached out to Jason at Fasstco (who was super helpful) & had them a week later. They mounted up perfect & looked sweet too! I've used them in the muddy conditions, dry conditions & on long tarmac stretches. They felt great everywhere. They offer a nice platform, good traction & best of all, they take the sharp edge feeling when hitting rocks & roots. They defiantly took away the metal to metal feel you get w/ the stock pegs, the vibrations too. They really are a comfortable ride on your feet, knees & lower back. Its very noticeable after riding all day. They don't move & you wont even feel them flex, but they offer enough give to take the hard impacts off your legs. You know if Fasstco makes it, its going to work & be a quality product like everything them make.
