Factory UTV’s Can Am Maverick Trail / Sport UHMW Skid Plate Kit has your Can Am Maverick covered! OEM skid plates simply do not satisfactorily protect the underside of your UTV under normal off road operation. Factory UTV has the answer with skid plates constructed from UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic. Significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV skids offer full protection for the under carriage of your Maverick Trail. 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 skid plates are very TOUGH! Protect your investment today! This is the same protection Factory UTV Support racers have used to protect their race UTV’s and win every major Pro UTV Endurance Championship race including the Baja 500 and 1000, Mint 400, Vegas to Reno, King of Hammers and more…
**Please retain all your OEM skid plate hardware for new skid install. We will supply all extra hardware required to mount new skids**
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. 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.
