Get a look at the leaked details on The Shadow Conspiracy Plasmatic Peg that we’ve been waiting to see for about a year now!
The first look at the Plasmatic Peg from The Shadow Conspiracy popped up about a year ago, and since then it’s been fairly quiet and we didn’t really hear much or see anything. Then, the other day, Shadow dropped a teaser picture on Instagram to stoke the embers of the fire back up. Unfortunately, that didn’t give away anything as far as details. Brant Moore was trying to figure out the details and stumbled on to a website that has the elusive peg listed. We’re not sure why a random shop in Michigan has the pegs listed, but they let the cat out of the bag with this one. It looks like, as many people guessed, the peg uses a thicker plastic sleeve and a longer core that also doubles as the nut on your axle so you can tighten it down with a 3/8″ ratchet from the outside on the end of the peg instead of needing a socket an extension.
The photo shows how it would work on a 14mm or 3/8″ male axle, but it doesn’t show what would be used for female axles. We would assume that would be the $7.99 adaptor that there isn’t a photo of, but it’s likely either a threaded bolt that goes into the peg and the axle, but like Brant mentions in the video, we’re not sure how that would keep the peg, male or female, from backing itself off and becoming loose.
Either way, it looks like the peg will retail for $27.99 each with the $7.99 adaptor separate. If this random shop in Michigan has it listed, it shouldn’t be long before it’s available through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry The Shadow Conspiracy. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more!
UPDATE: A source says that this isn’t exactly correct an that the final version of the peg will be different than what’s seen, and that it’s still a little ways out from being released. We’re not sure what changes there will be if a dealer has photos / pricing and the logos and everything are done, but it’s possible. Could have been a last minute change. We’ll have to wait and see…End of update
