Our YXZ skids are molded to follow the YXZ belly lines and protect the vulnerable edges. YXZ OEM skid plates are simply not up to the task of satisfactorily protecting the underside of the YXZ through difficult off road terrain. Our skid plates are constructed from UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic. Significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV skids and A-Arm guards offer full protection for the under carriage 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. Factory UTV introduced Full UHMW Skid plates and protection products to the UTV market places back in 2007.
