AltRider's Dual-Control Brake System For Honda Africa Twin

Better control over your rear brake lever whether you are sitting or standing.

The 2016-17 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin has a DualControl Brake System from AltRider that gives riders better control over their rear brake lever in both seated and standing riding positions, which is perfect for the off-road adventure.

“Most ADV riders change their foot position as they switch between standing and sitting,” explained AltRider Founder Jeremy LeBreton. “If your foot is not situated properly on the rear brake pedal, you’re potentially doubling reaction time and stopping distance, which can be especially hazardous when riding off-road. The DualControl Brake System aims to correct that problem so riders can maintain control over the rear brake at all times.”

AltRider's patent-pending DualControl Brake System features two pieces to help enhance a rider's control and reaction time: a riser and an enlarger plate. When a rider transitions from a seated position to a standing position, the change in angle tends to bring the front of the foot higher and further away from the rear brake lever. The riser was designed to provide quick access to the rear brake, no matter what position the rider is in.

The enlarger plate was designed to combat the effects of off-road terrain on the rider’s footpeg position. This piece provides a greater surface area to minimize slips or misses in bumpy riding conditions. With both pieces installed, the DualControl Brake System helps Africa Twin riders improve reaction time and control over the rear brake lever.

The 25.4mm tall riser, as well as the enlarger plate, is constructed of billet aluminum. The brake system also has replaceable grip pins that provide traction in all conditions. Installs are easy with the included stainless steel hardware.
