#6 The Footpegs I won’t Use.

Stock dirt bike footpegs are good, no doubt about it. They keep you up and riding on your dirt bike and they will get the job done every time.

But aftermarket dirt bike footpegs are even better!

If you have ever installed a pair of aftermarket footpegs after riding on factory footpegs you will notice a marked improvement in performance.

What do I mean by performance?

Well firstly, aftermarket footpegs have a larger platform. This means that there is more room on the peg to put your boot on which automatically makes them more comfortable and also will give you better control over your bike.

The second thing you will notice about aftermarket footpegs is the grip is better.

Aftermarket footpegs have a lot of well thought out design in the spikes of the pegs and they provide a triple row of grip.

The third thing you will notice is that aftermarket footpegs look really cool. If you are looking for the custom factory look then aftermarket footpegs are a must.

The last thing about aftermarket footpegs are that they are tougher than stock. This is something you won’t notice, but the design and materials used are way tougher than the stock footpegs available on a dirt bike.

Here are my 5 best motocross footpegs starting with my budget pick.

#1 Budget Option – IMS Superstock Footpegs.

The IMS Superstock are my budget option. The platform measures 50mm x 75mm which gives you an extra wide base for your feet.best motocross footpegs. IMS SuperStock Foot PegsThey have a triple row of traction that aren’t too sharp that they tear up your boot soles but provide a big improvement in grip.

They come in a powder coated finish which means zero rust or corrosion.

What I really like about the IMS superstock is that they fit most bikes and they are easy to install. 

Some custom footpegs can be a real pain in the ass to get on your bike but these slip on really easily just like stock.

They are made from case hardened steel which are so much tougher than stock and won’t snap if you smash them in a deep rut or on rocks.

For only about 70 bucks, you can’t beat these footpegs for the money, versatility and quality in the market.

#2 Personal Pick – IMS Pro Series 4 Footpegs.

The IMS Pro Series 4 footpegs are the footpegs I use on my dirt bikes and I know of many pro riders that also use them for both enduro and motocross.best motocross footpegs. IMS Pro Series 4

They are made out of industrial grade stainless steel which make them the toughest footpegs out there (aside from titanium).

The stainless steel material means that they also have a polished finish which make them look awesome and means that they will never rust and will always keep their shiny look.

They have nice, big aggressive teeth that bite into my boots for superior grip without tearing up my boot soles.

The platform is also nice and wide without being too large.

Installation of these footpegs are easy like their cheaper brother (IMS superstock) and I’ve never heard of riders that had a problem fitting them to their bike.

The IMS Pro Series come in at about 87 bucks which is incredible value for these premium aftermarket footpegs.

#3 Pivoting Option – Pivot Pegz Mark 3 Footpegs.

If you want to try motocross footpegs that can pivot forward and back, take a look at the the Pivot Pegz Mark 3 footpegs that are designed and built in Australia.

Best Motocross Footpegs. Pivot Pegz Mark 3 Footpegs

These rad looking footpegs have a multi directional teeth pattern for superior grip and the teeth are nice and tall without being too sharp.

These footpegs are 60mm wide!! platform which makes these the widest footpegs on the market that I know of.

The standout feature of these pegs is the pivoting design. Each peg is built on a super strong pivot that will allow the pegs to pivot about 5mm forward and backward.

The idea with this pivoting design is that the pegs can move with your boots as you rock forward and back while you are riding and changing gears and using the rear brake.

This pivoting action provides greater control to the bike, better comfort and less stress on your ankles. Very cool!

These footpegs are made from heat treated, aerospace grade stainless steel with a polished finish. This means that they are strong as hell and they also look awesome.

They are so strong in fact that Pivot Pegz offer a LIFETIME warranty on their footpegs against breakage! Nice.

Check out how they look on a dirt bike. Hell yeah!!

#4 The Adjustable Option – Fastway Evo 4 Footpegs.

If you are looking for a high level of adjustability, the Fastway Evo footpegs are the way to go.best motocross footpegs. fastway-evo-4 foot pegs

Firstly, the Fastway Evo 4 are built with removable cleats.

When you buy these footpegs you will also receive 2 different sized cleats (10mm and 12mm) that you can screw into the footpegs to adjust the height of the cleats to suit your riding style.

These cleats are not only for adjustability but they can be replaced entirely when you wear them down.

The cleats provide excellent grip and dig into your motocross boots really well without tearing up the soles.

The second adjustment you can make is the height of the footpegs. To do this you simply install a collar that comes with the footpegs that allows you to lower the height of the footpegs by about 10mm.

The third adjustment you can make is with the footpegs camber (up/down footpeg tilt angle).

To make this adjustment you can adjust the number of washers on the footpegs which will adjust the tilt.

Aside from adjustability, the Evo 4 footpegs have a nice and wide platform that measures about 58 mm wide and 85mm long.

They are also made of stainless steel so they are as tough as hell and you never have to worry about them breaking.

#5 Ankle Support Option – Fastway Air EXT Footpegs.

If you are looking for aftermarket footpegs that offer the most support for your feet and legs, the Fastway Air Ext footpegs are for you.best motocross footpegs. fastway air ext footpegs

The most obvious design on these footpegs is the ankle saver technology. the ankle saver is an extension off the back of the footpegs that provide an extra platform for your heels to rest on.

This extra platform takes a lot of the load off your ankles as you are riding and it also really helps if you make a mistake in your riding and lose contact with your pegs.

These footpegs are especially good for riders with existing, foot/ankle injuries.

If you check online comments about these footpegs, you will notice a lot of riders with existing ankle injuries really appreciate the extra support of riding with an extra platform for the heels to rest on.

At first, I thought that these ankle savers would get in the way of my motocross riding, but after trying them, I forgot they were even there.

But they were really nice to rest my heels on when I needed to, and I also felt their benefit when I was landing jumps.

The Fastway Air Ext footpegs come with adjustable cleats in 10mm and 12mm sizes so you can adjust the traction to suit your riding style and replace them when they wear down.

You can also adjust the height and camber of the footpegs as well (with a few easy adjustments) which is really neat.

They are made from super strong 2024 billet aluminium. Normally, I’m not the biggest fan of aluminium on footpegs as I’ve known aluminium to snap.

But with these, I could probably hit them with a sledge hammer and not break them. I have full confidence in their strength.

The Fastway Air Ext have a nice, big platform of 58mm wide and provide heaps of traction.

They also come in a range of cool dirt bike classic colors.

They are not cheap at about 240 bucks but if you have pre-existing ankle injuries, they will save your ankles from further injury from impact and riding stress.

#6 The Footpegs I Won’t Use.

Titanium footpegs have teeth like a raptor and just as sharp. The ones below are called Hammerhead, named after a shark lol.

titanium footpegs

Yes they have the best traction out of all the footpegs out there and they are also made out of titanium which is one of the strongest and lightest metals on the planet.

The problem though is that they will tear through your motocross boot soles like a chainsaw. 

The other problem that I have with them is that they are expensive.

Titanium footpegs will set you back upwards of 300 bucks! 

This is because titanium is a very expensive metal and you are paying a premium for titanium parts.

As I have demonstrated above, you can get a premium set of footpegs under $100! so why pay more for footpegs that tear up your boots?

Not worth it in my opinion.

Conclusion.

Let me know your favorite footpegs in the comments section below. Also let me know what you think of the Fastway Air Ext ankle support footpegs if you have used them.

 

Happy riding!
