Blingstar always has eye-catching ATV accessories and its display at this year’s Indy Dealer Expo was no exception. However, the product we were most impressed with this year is also brilliant in its functionality.

Blingstar redesigned its popular heel guard for 2010 to include an anti-vibration flexible joint. The patent pending Flex Joint System, according to Blingstar, helps prevent breaking and stress cracks caused by extreme racing conditions.

The Heel Guard with Flex Joint System comes with a carbon fiber heel plate with a replaceable net system and is constructed of durable 6061 T1 aluminum.

Additionally, Blingstar unveiled some cool billet aluminum products – Dual Sprocket Guards ($138.99) and Rotor Guards ($99.95 – 129.95). Beyond protection your sprocket and chain, these things look absolutely trick.

The Dual Sprocket Guards are designed to maximize ground clearance and provide better protection for the chain and sprocket. Blingstar also says the guards decrease the chance of chain derailment.

The Rotor Guards, according to Blingstar, provide maximum protection to key brake components while reducing weight.
