Can-Am Maverick X3 UHMW Skid Plate. 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. The Can Am X3 OEM protection falls seriously short in a couple areas. Can Am uses HMW which has 1/10th the impact strength compared to the UHMW used for Factory UTV’s Armor. This is an important distinction on a machine as big and fast as the X3. The X3’s Clutch Cover is extremely vulnerable to damage from below with the OEM protection.
Factory UTV’s Armor addresses the clutch cover vulnerability with coverage that extends out and around the cover to protect it from below. They have also added an X-Brace option under the engine/trans area of the X3. The X-Brace consists of a 1/8″ 6061 High Strength Aluminum sheet that gets sandwiched between the UHMW skid and X3 Frame during installation. If you’re going to play hard in your X3, you’ll need the added X-Brace protection. The X3 engine/trans is precariously close to the skid plate on an X3. They have also added a front differential skid plate covering an area left bar by the OEM. This diff plate is molded to conform to the X3 in that area.
These are the same X3 UHMW Armor products you’ll see on the Can Am X3’s of top Can Am factory racers like 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.
UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic. 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 its 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!
