Welcome to the 2016 Racer X Online Actually Fun Gift Guide. We're attempting to make mundane Christmas gift shopping into something cool—starting with the fact that motocross gifts are the best gifts of all. Try RacerXBrand.com to get your shopping list going this year, then check out some other cool products.
There are times when a person can be just too damn good looking for their own good. Trust me, I know. People are always coming up to me and saying, “Hansel, you’re so hot right now.” Being really, really, ridiculously good looking, I get it, but there are times when I wish people could look past my impeccable, American made, hard-anodized, exquisitely crafted, and adjustable, exterior. I’m sure the Pro Moto Billet Fastway Dog Bone and Air EXT Footpegs feel the same way.
The Dog Bone replaces a component in your bike’s linkage, the system that connects your rear shock to the rest of your bike. Slight adjustments to the length of the Dog Bone can make big differences in the way your bike feels and handles, which is a good thing considering how many different riding conditions and styles there are. And with four suspension adjustments—stock, .6mm, 1.3mm, and 2mm—this Fastway piece has you covered in any situation. It can lower the seat height half an inch, it improves front end steering and cornering, helps your bike stay flat through rollers, and can stiffen the initial 110mm (just over four inches) of rear shock stroke if conditions or preference require. The weight is on par with stock, and if you own a KTM, it’s lighter than stock. It’s even made in America!
Of course, all you superficial jerks can see are the amazing looks of this piece, which is understandable because it’s far, far more visually appealing than the stock unit. There are multiple colors to choose from too. Blue Steel (ahem, aluminum), anyone? MSRP is $189.95. Check out www.ProMotoBillet.com to order and improve the performance of your ride today.
Next up is another insanely useful product you probably know nothing about because you’ve been too busy drooling over its amazing appearance. Well, eyes up here fella, its learning time. The awesome features of this peg are many, but the most amazing is the Ankle Saver Technology, which is exactly what it sounds like. Ever flatland a big jump and curl your toes into your shins? Wouldn’t have happened with these pegs. Ever wish you could balance better when leaning back hard and blasting through a set of whoops or fast rollers? The rear support on these pegs makes it possible. We could literally go on and on about the endless advantages of what is probably the ultimate peg in the universe, but you’d be too busy ogling this American made product to listen. MSRP is $275, much cheaper than an ankle injury, so head over to www.ProMotoBillet.com and order a set for yourself and a fellow motohead.
