AltRider DualControl Brake System for Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin
Includes Enlarger & 25.4mm RiserRated 4/5 based on 1 reviews.
The average person takes 0.5 to 1 full second to react to hazards. Traveling at 60 MPH, a rider will travel 25 to 50 feet before being able to properly react. Most OEM brake pedals have a single-positioned small footprint, yet most ADV riders substantially change foot positioning as they switch between standing and sitting. If your foot is not already situated correctly on the rear brake pedal, you are now potentially doubling reaction time and distance to make what could be a critical stop. This is why you see all motorcycle racers with 1 or 2 fingers on the front brake lever in photographs. AltRider has taken away this additional hazard with the patent pending DualControl Brake System. There are two parts to the AltRider DualControl Brake System that enhance control and reaction time; a riser and an enlarger plate.
When in a seated position, a rider’s bent knee naturally puts the angle of the foot pointed down 90 degrees from the lower leg, while a standing position creates a straighter leg and raises the angle of your foot to a more horizontal position. Using the OEM brake pedal, there is no way to keep the correct brake control position when both sitting and standing. With the AltRider enlarger and riser combined, there are now two levels in which to engage the rear brake, putting your foot in optimal position regardless of riding position.
The ever-changing terrain of off-road riding means your entire body is constantly moving and adjusting. The billet aluminum enlarger plate gives your foot a greater surface area to work with, affording you more control of the rear brake. The enlarger plate is precision fit to each bike model ensuring long-term stability. Optional and replaceable grip pins are provided for further customization.

AT brake pedal extensionBy: Hamish Reid on 21 August 2019When I’m into standing on the pegs during off road riding the standard AT rear brake pedal was a pain to find and sometimes got missed when needed, but with the Altrider dual control pad it has made a big difference in giving me confidence in knowing that I can hit the pedal without having to break concentration , although this takes a bit of practice to get used to compared to the standard unit as the standing on the pegs control plate is narrow and close to the motor, but if you miss that you can’t miss the bigger plate just a bit further down. The mini allan key studs are surprisingly effective, they really supply great grip to the riders boot.
