Heatshield Products will be featuring the world’s first 30” turbine powered at the SEMA show.

Las Vegas, NV –Heatshield Products is proud to announce the presence of Voodoo Bikeworks turbine powered bike as seen on History Channel’s Bike Battleground Phoenix.

Heatshield Products helped out Kody and his crew with our Inferno Wrap. It was the only wrap Kody found that could tame the heat of his 30” turbine powered bagger. Taming the heat was absolutely critical to this build. An extreme heat power plant required the ultimate in exhaust wrap. It even thrived the oil leak and fire that ensued shortly after. When it had to go down for an attitude adjustment to the turbine, Kody was able to unwrap the wrap without it falling apart. Stop on by say high and check out on hot bike and see how it keeps it’s cool.
