Factory UTV Honda Talon Half Inch and three eights inch UHMW Skid Plate Kits. 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. Our Factory UTV Honda Talon 1/2 inch UHMW Skid Plate Package protects your assets. UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic is significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV UHMW skids and guards offer the best protection available for the undercarriage of your UTV. We’ve also added an X-Brace option under the engine/trans area of the Talon. The X-Brace consists of a 1/8″ 6061 High Strength Aluminum sheet that gets sandwiched between the UHMW skid and Talon Frame during installation. If your going to play hard in your Talon, you’ll need the added X-Brace protection. The Talon engine/trans is precariously close to the skid plate.These are the same protection products used to help racers win just about every major Pro UTV off road race in 2018 including the: 2018 King of Hammers, 2018 UTV World Championship , 2018 Mint 400, 2018 Silver State 300, 2018 Baja 500, 2018 Baja 1000 and every round of the 2018 GNCC Series XC1 Pro UTV Class **Please retain all your OEM skid plate hardware for new skid install. We will supply all extra hardware required to mount new skids** Instructions Check out this Installation Video **Compatable with X and R models** 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.
