The long awaited Butter nylon pegs from Cult are OUT NOW! The pegs feature a heat-treated 4130 chromoly core with a Perlon nylon 6 sleeve that’ll help you slide like butter. These pegs feature a 105mm length with a 35mm outer diameter (Same as their Doomsday peg) and come in sizes of 3/8 and 14mm. All pegs come with an extra replacement sleeve and you can buy additional sleeves for $5.99 through the Cult Webstore.
You can pick these pegs up for $19.99 each through the Cult Webstore, your favorite bike shop or Mail-Order.

Despite releasing Nathan William’ signature Pegs not too long ago which feature a steel peg injected with nylon, it looks like Eclat are also working on a more traditional plastic peg (never though I’d be saying those words!) which uses a Chromoly core with a replaceable plastic sleeve. These are still in the prototype stages, but might be worth looking into if the Nathan Pegs aren’t your fancy. Knowing our German friends at Eclat, there will be something different and original about this one, self-healing plastic would be a godsend…
After a subdued release, Nathan William’s highly anticipated signature Plastic Pegs from Eclat are now available. Using a heat treated chromoly core injected with a fibreglass composite, these pegs are unlike anything else out right now. Head over to Eclat for a closer look and an in depth explanation as to why they break the mould of all the other plastic pegs currently available.
Another day, another brand releasing Plastic Pegs. Here is a sneak peek at Colony‘s new Anyway Plastic Pegs which are due out this Summer. Nothing crazy here, much like most other plastic pegs they feature an alloy core with a PC sleeve. Check out what they had to say bellow.
“We have been working on these for a while with various materials & designs but they are now ready to start production.
Due out in the Australian & Canadian markets for June, with others to follow. Our new Anyway Pegs featuring a plastic outer with alloy core, ready to slide on almost any surface. Black only & in either 10mm or 14mm fitment. They weigh in at 107 grams each.”
Hot product of the year, Premium have their own Plastic Pegs coming out. These like many others use a coloured alloy core with a replaceable Plastic sleeve and should be available in pairs this September.
Bone Deth‘s Coffee Grinder Pegs that we showed last month are now available for you to purchase. Seen here is a promo video Lee Hopkins put together along with a neat flickbook below showing all the neat features. These Pegs come with a block of Wax which is pretty neat.
The guys at The Shadow Conspiracy hit us up with an exclusive first look at their new Plastic Peg that we spotted on their Instagram last week.
Seen here is the new S.O.D. “Slide or Die” Plastic Peg that they have coming out. They designed this peg with Scott Ditchburn who wanted a plastic/chromoly combo peg that wouldn’t rotate when grinding and didn’t have as large of an outside diameter as the pegs that we’re currently out. This is a big issue for many riders, as most current Plastic Pegs like the Animal Butchers are much fatter than your traditional 36mm Steel Peg.
Scott also wanted to keep it very light, similar to an aluminum version, so that there wouldn’t be an ample amount of weight added to your bike when you ran 3-4 pegs and spinning the bars would still feel good.
To shrink the size of the peg, they decided to use a butted heat treated chromoly core. This gave them the opportunity to shrink the internal core to a 31mm diameter. Due to it’s size, this creates a very light peg that obtains the durability and dent resistance of a standard heat treated chromoly peg. The plastic sleeve is made out of their already tried and proved Nylon/Fiberglass propitiatory compound and is 4mm thick so it offers more plastic than your typical plastic peg. This means that the overall peg diameter with the plastic sleeve is only 39mm. Just 1mm larger than your typical 38mm steel peg. This was one of the main points that Ditchburn wanted to touch on. There is also no issues fitting nuts and washers into the peg, which can be a real pain when you are travelling/taking your pegs off.
The second point that they wanted to touch on was the anti-rotational end on the peg and sleeve. Like many riders who ride plastic pegs, this is a problem that Ditchburn had been experiencing with numerous pegs. They came up with the cross end plug system so that the peg had no chance of rotating and allowed a flat chromoly to dropout interface. This means that no matter how much you grind through the sleeve, it wont twist apart from the chromoly peg like other pegs tend to do.
The prototype peg currently weighs 5.3 ounces and is 104mm long. Although this is still in the sample stages (hence the white sleeve), Scott and the rest of the team will be grinding the hell out of these to make sure they are 100% ready for whatever rail, ledge or edge you want to slap your pegs on. If his Subrosa video part is anything to go by, these things will be testing to destruction.
With the growing amount of brands releasing (or working on) plastic pegs, I’m pretty excited to see how this new S.O.D. Peg fairs and weather it will be a substantial improvement on what’s already out there. Be sure to follow Shadow on Instagram to see updates on this peg and and a sneak peek on all the other stuff they are working on this year.
Cult’s very own design wizard Neal Wood just dropped some info on their Butter Nylon Pegs which will be available in April.
“The Butter Nylon Pegs will be available in April. They will retail for $19.99, be available in 10mm or 14mm, and for that you get one heat treated 4130 inner peg and two nylon sleeves.”
Much like a lot of other brands right now, Shadow are working on a Plastic Peg. This prototype works much like the Animal Butcher and Stolen Silencer Pegs using an Alloy Core with a replaceable Plastic Sleeve. The catch with this one, is that it uses grooves in the bottom of the peg to lock the sleeve in place and stop it from rotating when grinding, and in turn improving the longevity of the peg.
Neat idea, hope to see more on this one soon…
Bone Deth‘s new Coffee Grinder Pegs are designed with the heavy grinder in mind. Made out of heat treated 4140 chromoly, these are slightly longer and thicker than Bone Deth’s Diet Grinder Pegs at 4.25″ long and 38mm wide.
Designed with team rider Lee Hopkins these are very similar to Animal’s OG Pegs (which were probably some of the best pegs ever made) and even come in paper bag with a free block of wax in case you need some of the slick stuff to help you slide. These are sold individually in both 14mm and 3/8ths version, weigh 215g per peg and should be out in the next month or so along with the rest of Bone Deth’s new products. Get grinding.
