The ‘Thresher Collection’ – “Comfort and Control” Pioneers in isolation mounting “back in the day” with ISO pegs, Kuryakyn is introducing a new line of grips and pegs that are said to offer “the ideal combination of comfort and control.“ Featuring EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) M-class synthetic rubber Thresher grips are “designed with an ergonomic profile that’s formed to the shape of the hands for a comfortable contoured and commanding feel. Both the grips and matching Thresher pegs feature premium EPDM rubber surfaces with detailed shark tooth-inspired knurling for confident traction and vibration dampening. The durable EPDM rubber compound offers secure grip and will not harden, crack or wear over time.” The universal grips for most 7/8” and 1” handlebar applications have a comfortable spindle-shaped design with tapered ends and an expanded palm area. The contoured grip bodies are constructed completely from EPDM rubber rated in the 50-60- durometer range for an ultra-soft cushioned base that dampens vibration and eliminates hand fatigue. Aluminum collars and end caps “with subdued styling provide a clean look on virtually any type of motorcycle”, and the included bar-mounted end caps can be swapped out for bar-end mirrors or weights. Available chrome or satin black, additional OEM- specific fitments are in development for Harley-Davidson, Indian, Victory and a wide range of metric cruisers. The matching footpegs and shift pegs feature sleek and streamlined aluminum castings wrapped in EPDM rubber, “with steel adapters that offer sturdy and secure foot placement. The detailed ‘shark tooth’ knurling is more pronounced on the pegs to ensure a greater amount of traction and vibration dampening for riders. Splined adapters allow precise footpeg positioning to let riders dial in their preferred placement.” Available with male-mount adapters for most H-D models, and without adapters for a variety of OEM fitment via model-specific splined adapters (sold separately). Thresher shift pegs are available in chrome or black in two applications - as a direct replacement for all H-D shift levers, as well as the shift peg on Indian big twins or shift and brake peg locations on Indian Scouts and select Victory models.
