Depends on the bike. If you want to look cool, or just spend money. Or it could be the best pegs to last longer.

S3 steel, maybe not the lightest but shallow design and long lasting with good grip.

Foot pegs are not the only wear item. Sometimes it is cheaper to just replace pegs. So you have a Montesa 4rt. You update to stronger brackets. Then thinking stronger is always better, you buy the old hebo gasser pegs that were indestructible. A couple months go by and everything is good. Next trials the whole foot peg assembly falls off after hitting a rock. When you pick it up you realize none of your new components broke, it was the frame. Some times it is better to break a peg!

I would love a new set of pegs but have been split on what is best... I don't need the most inditructible set but would like a more comfortable platform, if that is possible, without compromising performance.

I welcome suggestions but if possible include why you recommend so I can build a more informed opinion.

Thanks!

I really like my raptors. There comfortable, have held up really well, shed the mud with there open design, and look like artwork. The old steel Hebos are hard to beat value wise. Jitsie makes a clone thats even cheaper - but not quite as strong. (Maybe a good thing if you lean that way)

I like the thought of good ability to shed the mud, I do want reasonable durability but I would rather have a peg brake or bend than the bike's frame have an issue.

It looks like Jitsie now has there own version of the S3 hard rock aluminum... I like the width of the Jitsie and S3 but not sure about the fact they both seem to be called out as vary strong/indestructible... Maybe if I keep the stock hangers for my 4RT so I don't risk the frame?

I like the forged aluminum RQ pegs (OEM on Sherco) from Ryan Young Products. They are the lightest and longest longest of the available pegs, and as wide as the alternatives. Being forged, they are quite tough. I've hit them pretty hard without bends of breaks. Big teeth. Big open hole for mud to go through. Simple. Not super expensive.

Application well documented here:

Better pix on a Raga rebuild with RQ pegs are later in the thread.

I have an extra pair of S3 Hard Rock steel pegs. New in the package. I ran them on My Beta Techno.. so much better than the stock pegs. This extra pair I bought for a Rev3 than I sold.

My Evo came with the Raptors, way nicer that the S3 but twice the price.

PM me if interested in the S3 I have.

I dont personally care for the Ti S3's. After one easy (didnt ride much) season both pegs had several cracks in them and the one broke. The steel version is probably alot better. The shape does help you slide over rocks instead of having the peg grab them. I really liked mine until I didnt....

+1 on the steel S3's, they feel good to stand on.
