ATV Skid Plates
ATVs are born to be driven off road. Whether you use your vehicle for farm or forest work, for everyday chores around your property or just for some good old fashioned off-roading fun, you still have to go over rocks and stumps, through mud and ditches, navigate between trees and rocks, and maneuver in tight spaces. We know that in order to make the most of your vehicle, it needs solid and reliable protection that lets you concentrate on the job at hand and not worry about damaging it.
Factory stock plastic bottom covers are generally totally insufficient in offering protection against impacts and usually shatter at the first serious contact with rocks or tree stumps. Some manufacturers do not offer any bottom covers at all and leave the engine, drive shaft, control arms, reducers and even the fuel tank totally exposed to potential damage. The plastic parts of ATVs are usually made of light yet easily breakable plastic, which are not able to withstand collision. So using a low quality bottom cover or no protection at all, means you have to be extra careful or risk expensive repairs.
These are the reasons we created Iron Baltic. Our skid plates give you the peace of mind to drive through bushes, glide over stones and stomps, and go through mud and water without having to worry about breaking your ATV. We started in 2006 with custom hand made ATV skid plates and have since expanded our product line to include more than 200 different plastic and aluminium skid plates for most common ATV brands. We are constantly developing new products and are committed to improving the existing models based on feedback from users and ATV manufacturers.
Iron Baltic ATV aluminium skid plates have the best possible durability to weight ratio and offer superior protection over plastic analogues. Our aluminium skid plates are made from marine grade aluminium, which is the hardest aluminium that can still be mechanically processed. The aluminium is shaped using CNC cutting, the sides are then CNC bent, and the corners of the bent sides TIG welded. The outcome is a structurally rigid skid plate that is strong and durable even in extreme conditions. All of our aluminium skid plates are fully compatible with all other Iron Baltic products (plow adapters, hitch ball mounting kits, etc.) and with most factory accessories (original winch adapters, etc.).
Iron Baltic ATV plastic skid plates are a big step up from factory installed plastic covers, which offer little to no protection against impacts. Our plastic skid plates are made from high density polyethylene (PE-HWU), which has excellent sliding properties, high corrosion and chemical resistance, and superb UV-protection. The material remains very tough even at low temperatures (even at -50°C / -58° F) but is still flexible enough not to deform and regain its shape after an impact. Plastic skid plates are structurally rigid and durable with low friction properties offering easy and safe operations even in extreme conditions. All of our plastic skid plates are fully compatible with all other Iron Baltic products (plow adapters, hitch ball mounting kits, etc.) and with most factory accessories (original winch adapters, etc.).
