The mid-September Orange County Sand Sports Super Show has long since signified
the end of summer and the beginning
of the “official sand-duning season.” It
used to be a pretty even mix of ATVs,
sand rails and camping equipment.
The ATV has pretty much gone to the
wayside, and the sand-rail showing is
definitely dwindling, but the UTV has
most definitely taken over with force.
This year’s show was as big as it’s
ever been, and the UTV presence was
unreal. In a fair guess, we would say
our beloved UTVs and related parts
vendors accounted for 50–60 percent
of the entire show.
In case you missed it, we’ve
compiled a little buyer’s guide, or
summarization, of the favorite new
UTV products we got to check out!
ELKA SUSPENSION 3.0 STAGE 5 UTV SHOCKS
The guys from Elka Suspension were on hand showing off their new, massive,
3.0-inch-body Stage 5 UTV shocks. The platform is based on their already-proven
High-Flow technology, with a redesigned dual-speed compression adjuster, as
well as rebound and spring preload adjustments. Adjustable crossover rings allow
for even further refinement, the most comfortable ride and preventing bottom-out.
These shocks look absolutely sweet and are already winning races with Beau
Baron and Matt Hancock in WORCS.
