Kai Ingvald’s ever increasing involvement in the enduro sport taught him the concept of enduro riding techniques, inevitably followed by throbbing fore arms (“arm pump”), aching hands, and general fatigue. Extremely tired after another hard enduro trip in the forest, the simple question “There has to be something I can do with the bike to improve the situation?” led to the discovery of the TwinPegs concept.
The concept was tested by constructing a simple first generation prototype for his WR250F. The original footpeg was left in the original position, an additional footpeg was placed behind it, on a steel bracket. Thus there were no interference with brake and gear controls. The concept is still the same today, but now the rigid brackets are made out of billet aluminium.
Testing of the WR in the forest with the first simple prototype installed, gave the necessary positive answers to explore the concept further. A second generation prototype was designed and built, and tested both on ice and snow covered roads/enduro tracks in Norway, and at the “Wild West Enduro” race in Denmark, on a sandy track. This was the race debut for TwinPegs, and Kai Ingvald’s debut on sand.
The core of the TwinPegs concept is to “RIDE FASTER FURTHER!”
