FELIPE PROHENS - TESTIMONIAL
A 20th outright finish in the 2010 Dakar rally clearly demonstrates the speed, skill and capabilities of Chilean Pro rider Felipe Prohens. Felipe had seen and heard about Pivot Pegz and wanted to test them, below are his test results:
"Loved them!..... the first test was on my enduro bike (Honda CRF450X) I rode on the mountains here in Chile, in places that you have to ride like in Trial, and you have to keep your balance on the bike, having the control on the pedals….. that's what I most liked about Pivot Pegz, you can pass the shifts without having to move the boot that much and without losing the balance on the bike.
On the Rally Bike, I went to the Atacama desert, and I rode like 1.500 kms on dunes, stones and dry roads. On the Rally bike, is not easy to find the rear brake and shift pedals because the gas tanks are very big and the legs go around the bike making it uncomfortable to use the rear brake and the shift pedal, but with Pivot Pegz I can easily find these pedals because I don't have to move my boot that much.
Also they give me a comfortable position of riding, because in the rallies you mostly race standing up and the wind pushes you back, it's a constant fight but with Pivot Pegz I can stand in the front part of the bike without getting to tired. I really like them, and I think there's a before and after with Pivot Pegz. For sure I will ride with them in the next Dakar and other races.
This year we have plans to race two races of the world rally championship (in Egipt and Brasil), the Dakar, Baja Score 1000 and the ISDE in Mexico."
