2019 Sand Show’s Top Products!
Every year, companies, vendors, gearheads, adventurers, drivers, riders, and racers come together in Costa Mesa, California, for the Sand Sports Super Show. For the past few years UTVs have dominated the space and the interest. High-dollar sand cars are still in evidence, but as UTVs grow more capable, more folks are happy with a turn-key machine. Quads used to be a huge part of the show, and had started to fade away, but we saw more quads and especially three wheelers this year than the last few years combined!
Sand Show is a place for companies to drop big announcements for new ideas, but also to sell existing products with special show pricing. There are several raffles and giveaways, and interest was high for the new Polaris UTVs that were given away, but there were plenty of stock and highly modified machines for sale as well.
We are always on the lookout for new and innovative products and unique builds as we stroll through the hundreds of booths so that we can share with our readers what they might have missed out on.
