Can-Am Defender / Defender MAX UHMW A-Arm Guards
Can-Am Defender / Defender MAX UHMW A-Arm Guards. Factory UTV’s UHMW protection products are the gold standard for UTV protection systems. OEM protection simply does not satisfactorily protect the underside of your UTV under normal off road operation. The Can Am Defender OEM protection falls seriously short in several areas. We’ve addressed the lack of A-Arm protection with our popular 3/8 in UHMW A-Arm Guards. Constructed from ultra tough and slick UHMW, our guards protect your expensive A-arms from abuse. These guards also offer some protection for your CV-Boots which easily get punctured on the trail and ruin a good weekend ride. These are the same UHMW Armor products you’ll see on the Can Am X3’s of top Can Am factory racers like Phil Blurton Jr, Kyle Chaney, Marc Burnett and Monster Matt Burroughs to name just a few. They depend on Factory UTV UHMW Armor to get them to the finish line under the most demanding of race conditions. Join the #futvarmy and protect your Defender with the best Armor in the world, Factory UTV UHMW Armor!
Significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV skids and A-Arm guards offer full protection for the undercarriage of your UTV. 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 are the same protection products used to help racers win just about every major Pro UTV off road race including multiple King of Hammers, multiple UTV World Championships , multiple Mint 400’s, multiple 5 Silver State 300’s, multiple Baja 500’s and Baja 500’s, and multiple GNCC races and championships. These skid plates are very TOUGH! Protect your investment today!

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 and withstand 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.
