— What we saw at the Sand Sports Super Show —
The Sand Sports Super Show is one of the biggest shows of the year for UTV enthusiasts and is held in Costa Mesa, California. Vendors take this opportunity to showcase all that they bring to the table, as well as debut new products to the masses. This fall we scoured the massive fairgrounds to find all the latest and greatest products. The show was packed with cool new stock, so in case you missed out, here’s what we found.
ASSAULT INDUSTRIES: BLACK OPS HEAVY-DUTY UTV DRIVE SHAFTS (FRONT/REAR), $204.99
Made from all 4340 chromoly steel with larger CV joints and center-shaft diameters, these axles should help keep you going, even in rough conditions. Greater articulation angles should help improve performance. Find more information at www.assaultind.com or (714) 799-6711
JOKER MACHINE: GAS PACK MOUNT, $79.95
Carrying an extra gas can be necessary but also dangerous.
