TOP 20 Sand Dune products you need to know about!

As summer winds down, dune enthusiasts gear up for the winter riding season throughout the west, and two of the largest sand expos are the Sand Sports Super Show (SSSS) in Costa Mesa, California, and the Arizona Off-Road and Sand Expo in Phoenix. Duners load up their families and tricked-out wagons and head for these sand expos to check out the latest and greatest sand tires, safety whips, audio and lighting systems, long-travel suspension, shocks, wheels, exhausts, intakes, alloy accessories and much more. They also load up those wagons with show-priced bargains, and the more well-heeled buy up the radical builds that showcase the latest products. Luckier attendees win the yearly raffle vehicles donated to the American Sand Association, like Mike Hennigan and Norm Glastetter, who won the Twisted Alloy Sand Car and Ride Now DFR/GMZ Polaris RZR XP 4 1000 at the 15th annual SSSS. Check out the newest gear for slinging sand, and plan to be at the Orange County Fairgrounds September 23–25, 2016, or Westworld in Scottsdale, Arizona, the same weekend. There will also be an EnduroCross round held in Arizona, so see www.arizonaoffroadexpo.com and www.endurocross.com.
