BMX sleeves for freestyle pegs
Sleeves are used together with pegs. Sometimes they are mistaken for one another, however, they are two different parts. A sleeve is a type of replacement tube used for freestyle BMX pegs. Pegs are used for grinding surfaces and when the outer layer eventually gets worn out, you can put a sleeve over your pegs. This way you only have to replace the wearing part (which is a sleeve) instead of the actual peg.
A lot of freestyle BMX riders prefer sleeves in plastic compared to steel, since plastic is more slideable which makes grinding easier. Most sleeves are also produced in plastic, but sleeves in steel can, however, endure more.
- Not all pegs are compatible with sleeves.
- Traditional steel pegs cannot be used with sleeves.
