Arctic Cat Wildcat 4 1000 UHMW Rock Sliders
Arctic Cat Wildcat 4 1000 UHMW Rock Sliders. ( 2012 – 2018 )
Factory UTV’s UHMW Skid Plates are the gold standard for UTV protection systems. OEM skid plates simply do not satisfactorily protect the underside of your UTV under normal off road operation. Your rockers are very vulnerable to damage from rocks, tree’s and other trail obstacles. Factory UTV has the answer with Rocker Sliders constructed from ultra tough 1/2 in UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic. Significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV sliders offer full protection for that vulnerable slider area without stick out and hanging up on objects. UHMW is tough, wear resistant plastic that combines an incredibly low coefficient of friction with outstanding impact strength, and will outwear carbon steel 10 to 1. Unlike aluminum, UHMW also has memory, meaning after a big impact hits aluminum will bend ,gouge and break while UHMW maintains it’s original shape. These sliders are very TOUGH!

What is UHMW ?
UHMW means: Ultra High Molecular Weight, Ultimately it’s a density measurement. During its manufacturing process, the molecules of this plastic is compacted as densely and close together as possible. UHMW is roughly 100x times denser than HMW, and exponentially denser than ABS or other common plastics. Our UHMW is partially made from Recycled UHMW materials, making the constancy more rigid and impact absorbent then that of just fresh new plastic, allowing the perfect amount of limited flexing capability needed to endure impacts. Our UHMW has a very low Friction coefficient, meaning its very slippery in rough conditions, up there with Teflon and other abrasion resistant materials, but it has the impact resistance and density to back it up withstanding some of the harshest environments you can throw at it. Using materials Lab tested and engineered to be the best for this application, paired with our engineers methodically designing the most secure mounting possible for just about every major UTV model. Our production team heat forming and hand finishing each product before it goes out, all our products being constructed in House and Made in the USA. Proving its durability through real world race hardened product testing with our FUTV army sponsorship program and affiliates, helping support racers and teams putting our skid plates through the ultimate test. resulting in the top 5 winning positions of almost every major yearly UTV, ultra 4 and off-road event.
If it’s ½” inch or 3/8” inch thick, our UHMW skid Plates have what it takes to help protect your ride through just about anything.
