What Is UHMW?

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene also referred to as UHMW is a thermoplastic that has some excellent properties for dirt bikes both in off-road and MX and @moleculemotosports is is bringing these products to you.

UHMW transfers loads more effectively therefore distributing the impact through the material. This in turn results with UHMW having the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic made.

UHMW has better abrasion resistance than Teflon which is an incredible feat. The material is self lubricating giving it an extremely low coefficient of friction. For those who snoozed through science basically you're going to glide over obstacles and not catch on those logs and boulders. You can also rest easy knowing your skid plate, glide plate and linkage guard are going to do their job.

Seth, the owner of @moleculemotosports is a down to earth guy and passionate moto guy himself. He also uses this material in designs to cover the belly of airplanes that fight forest fires. That honestly should be enough to convince you.

Fight forest fires and equip your bike with some awesome tech. Checkout if your in the market for a glide plate, skid plate or linkage guard.

Seth has definitely done his homework and we are believers. Plus made in USA
