Sand Sport Super Show 2019 | Did we forget an “S”? CHUPACABRA STYLE

Chupacabra Offroad headed to the Sand Show last weekend in Costa Mesa, California. Simply put, there’s no other show like it in our industry, not even close. Over the last 5-7 years it’s really evolved into the SxS show, we counted maybe 10 sand cars, but hundreds of RZR’s, X3’s, Talons, Wildcats, and YXZ’s.

It was a really cool feeling to have our race RZR on display, at the Coyne Powersports booth. After spending 3 days checking out as many booths as we can, we took some extra time to highlight (what we thought) were the coolest builds and new technology. It was also great to meet a few of you that watch the channel, and have met in the dunes. We hear you loud and clear, we need more content! We are working hard to up our game significantly this riding season.

The biggest takeaway for me was the implementation of more “smart” suspension options like the current Polaris Dynamix suspension. It reinforced my decision to buy a Dynamix, and after my first 300 mile ride, I hit the switch almost 100 times. I’ve said many times that I think this is the future, and Shock Therapy, King, and Walker Evans displays from last weekend only confirmed my belief. The Wildcat XXXX was also the talk of the show, so we wanted to see it up close. From what the numbers looked like, it will be awesome! But talk is cheap, they took a lot of deposits, not it’s time to build the first 250 Speed SxS’s, which will deliver next year.

We probably missed a lot of other cool items, builds, or accessories. What did we miss on the video that was cool, interesting, unique or simply badass?
