I had been trying to get a pair of pivoting powerpegz for my xrl for almost a year. The pres of the company sent me a set of the prototypes to try, as there is going to be a delay in the release. First I like to say thanks to Jim for allowing me the chance to try them! When I received them I was taken back as how substantial of a peg they are. They are about 8oz heavier than my ims pegs, but these are prototypes, so the weight may reduce when they can be cast. The new design is a much better maintenance free design. Performance wise they are fantastic! Stability is the real key to these pegs. The peg itself has a very large foot print allowing my foot to be much more stable. The pivoting action of the peg gives much more control/stability while riding. Going up or down hills is a lot more comfortable. No longer trying to dance on the edge of the peg looking for a good hold. The pivot allows your feet to remain in full contact with the face of the peg giving more confidence that you are in control. This pivoting action also helps in control as the pegs pivot allows your foot to be firmly planted on the peg and rotate the peg to apply brakes or shift. Another plus in the pivoting action is when going over rough terrain such as rocks/ whoops. The bike bounces and rocks underneath you, but your feet remain in full contact with the pivoting peg. Love them, and will not go back to another. The test now will be durability over the long haul. These should be standard on all off road motorcycles. Thanks again Jim!!!
