Tree Bikes recently gave Vital a tour of their headquarters in St. Louis, MO. Click here to check that out if you missed it. The Trick Stick pegs are a product of the Tree headquarters and they're quickly becoming some of the most popular pegs in BMX. Here is some of the info on them straight from Tree:

1.375” diameter comes in Black, Red, Gold, Green, Blue, and White

WEIGHT
-1.375” diameter = 97g/ 3.5oz each

SPECS
-Sold individually
-Made of full 7075 t6 aluminum

REASON FOR MAKING IT
We’ve been running titanium pegs because they are light, but they grind very slow and leave a material on the coping that just makes the coping slower and slower. We wanted to ride pegs that were light like ti but faster grinding.

WHY IT WAS MADE THIS WAY
They are internally butted to maximize strength to weight.
These aluminum pegs grind faster than titanium on steel. Just to clear any confusion, aluminum is not inherently a high friction material. Everyone has had there experience of aluminum railing being very slow, but aluminum railing is made of a very soft corrosion resistant grade. Like all metals, the higher quality grades are harder and have a lower friction coefficient. Skateboard trucks have always been made of aluminum.
