The ULTIMATE in new-aged plastic skid plates for your KTM 690, Husqvarna 701, and the new GasGas700. This plate is made from 3/8" thick (9.5mm) UHMW that is Thermo-Formed for a contoured shape which improves fitment and maintains ground clearance. This is not cold-broke and welded like HDPE plates. UHMW has 10X the wear resistance of mild steel and is self-lubricating for an extremely low coefficient of friction unlike the competition.

  • All Years KTM 690 Enduro & SMC
  • All Years Husqvarna 701 Enduro & SMC

Vanasche Motorsports has teamed up with Molecule Motosports, an expert in Thermo-Forming UHMW skid plates, to produce a proper plate to best all others.

We wanted to produce a plate that was extremely tough, durable, highly wear & impact resistant, and still offered the sound abatement qualities of plastic plates. Coming from an industrial background we knew that the only real option that would outperform all other plastics in an application such as this was UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene).

Vanasche Motorsports handled the precision machined components while Molecule cut and formed the UHMW plate. A partnership that will serve our customer base the best performance skid plates available.

    Most practical and best looking option.

    The UHMW material this skid plate is made from is ideal for the purpose - hard but not too hard, extremely tough and relatively lightweight. The design offers better than average protection and doesn't seem to reflect engine noise back at me like some steel plates tend to. The material used means that scuffs and blemishes can easily be made near invisible, keeping it good looking. Five stars.

    Fantastic Skid Plate

    Absolutely bomber, and looks fantastic. Also, unlike some after market parts, the fit is perfect and the finish is as well.

    Awesome looking durable skidplate.

    I was wondering if I should go with Alu or plastic skidplate. I went with this plastic one, im very happy with my choice. The plate is VERY thick, gives a solid impression and its easy to mount. One tip though, use locktite on the screws mounting the plate in front of the engine or they will rattle loose. Would buy again if needed.
