KTM 450 XCW Skid Plate 2008-2011
We incorporate Kevlar into our carbon fiber skid plates because it has proven to be one of the most durable and lightweight materials on the market today. While the carbon fiber looks great, the Kevlar helps set E Line Accessories from the competition. Why carbon fiber? Because an aluminum skid plate cannot be molded perfectly to the shape of the bike. Also, metal is prone to dents and bending which can allow impacts to cause damage along the lower frame tubes. Plastic? Great idea, however plastic will allow frames to be bent on impact as well as never being formed to follow the engine and frame lines to eliminate mud build up.
