Skinz Protective Gear (SPG) is a firm based in the United States that manufactures aftermarket snowmobile, bicycle, and motocross products. They sell snowmobile and bike accessories, including bike protectors, bike stands, fat bike accessories, rear transport covers, and travel cases. SPG was founded in Paynesville, Minnesota, in the early 2000s by Jeff and Tammy Hawksworth. Initially, SPG offered personal and machine protective gear, as well as luggage for cyclists and snowmobilers, but the company quickly expanded beyond the "protective gear" nickname, particularly in snowmobiling. Apart from aggressively developing new products for its own line, SPG created sub-brands for several legendary backcountry riders, including Chris Burandt, Dan Adams, and Bret Rasmussen.

SPG has developed into one of the world's most trusted aftermarket snowmobile parts companies. SPG products are used by top riders on their sleds to protect them from whatever they may encounter in the mountains, trails, and tracks. All SPG components and accessories are designed using the latest high-quality technology. Their mission is to develop components that are affordable without sacrificing quality.


Skinz Protective Gear believes that participation in sports is the best way to develop viable and innovative products. They strive to participate through their association with elite riders, loyal customers, and their own involvement in the industry. This enables them to gain access to the information necessary to chart a course for developing the products their consumers expect. For instance, SPG bumpers and float plates are built to protect your sled when you're out in the woods, pushing it to its limits. Their handlebars with integrated risers enable you to achieve the optimal body position on your sled, regardless of whether you're going backwards or banging ditches. The tunnel bags and Rack Pak?s make it simple to bring everything you need. Additionally, SPG silencers produce a rich, low-modified sound while boosting your sled's performance. These and other high-quality snowmobile components contribute to SPG popularity among riders.


Their product line features rear transport covers, tool kits, tank bags, seat kits, snow flaps, float plates, handguards, handle bar risers, bar pads, hoods-side panels, hoods-helium, Pro Tube Running Boards, adjustable remote coupling, brake lever, knee pads, front bumpers, rear bumpers, and arm kits.
