Key Features

  •   Wearplates included (specify on order)
  • CNC machined UHMW polymer provides consistent load transfer

Key Benefits

  • No modifications to skidtube required
  • Wearplates provide anti-slip and wear protection
  • Wearplates ease installation of bearpaws
  • High strength polymer with memory, deflects under critical point loading without failure and returns to original shape when unloaded
  • Keeps tail high in soft terrain to prevent tail strikes
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to install
  • Won't chip, crack or break
