skid plate vs. glide plate

Recommended Posts

whats the differance? which is better?

The skid plate usually mounts between the frame rails and protects things like engine cases from items kicked up by the tire. A glide plate is usually wider than a skid plate and also protects the frame and allows the bike to slide over tree trunks, rocks and debris. Glide plates may also have wings on them that protect the sides of the cases from impacts. As for which is better, it depends. If you ride in rocky terrain a lot, the more coverage, the better.
