Metro Blaster SideKick

Metro Blaster SideKick
A powerful blast of air in the palm of your hand!

Instead of waiting for your vehicle to dry itself, blast water away with the Metro Blaster SideKick. The compact Blaster SideKick is a hand-held companion to Metro’s popular Air Force Blaster. The SideKick blasts your car or bike dry before water spots form. Hit the road faster with the Blaster SideKick!

The Metro Blaster SideKick is an compact, handheld dryer for motorcycle and car owners because it removes water from places where towels cannot reach. When the vehicle or motorcycle is driven, these water droplets stream down the body panels and leave streaks and spots. The Blaster SideKick eliminates the water in crevices and on body panels before it has time to dry, in order to prevent ugly water spots.

Imagine drying your vehicle in just a few minutes without touching it. The Blaster SideKick allows you to dry the vehicle or bike with a large volume of warm, filtered air, which eliminates any direct contact with the paint. The SideKick is a safe and efficient way to dry any vehicle.

Air dry your motorcycle with the compact SideKick. Dry expensive wheels without touching them!
Remove excess water from around mirrors and windows with the Metro Sidekick portable dryer. Dry your engine after detailing to avoid water spots.

The Metro Sidekick dries motorcycles, wheels, engines, mirrors, and anywhere else moisture hides!

The Metro Blaster SideKick weighs just over 3 pounds, making it an excellent travel companion. The SideKick fits into saddlebags or into car trunks so you can blow dry your vehicle or motorcycle when you’re away from home. When prepping for a car show or bike event, the portability of the SideKick is a real asset.

The Blaster SideKick runs on a 1.3 HP motor powered by a 12 inch grounded cord. It includes a rubber neoprene blower nozzle to direct air into tight spaces and an air fan nozzle for drying body panels.

The SideKick is constructed of all steel in the U.S.A. and carries a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Don’t give water spots a chance. The Metro Blaster SideKick blasts away water with warm, filtered air to leave your vehicle or bike dry and spot-free.

Works Great
August 29, 2014
I bought this product and am very happy with its performance. Works really well drying hoods and windshields before water spots form. And does a great job blow-drying complex rims. The short cord is a good thing because it does take the connection point off the drive way and away from the water.
Light weight and powerful for the money.
Supplied Wide diffuser useless.

Makes drying much easier.
July 25, 2014
This is a very powerful unit for it's size and with a microfiber drying towel, I can dry a car completely in about 10 minutes. I'm also looking forward to my next engine detail for the improved drying this unit will provide in the many places where water is held in place.
Easy to hold. Very powerful for the size. The attachments are just what's needed. Very nicely priced. The unit appears to be very well made.
None so far.

Great product for a great price
July 11, 2014
This item is great to supplement your existing detailing products. If you live in an area with hard water, you may find that after drying, it will still leave water spots. This product isn't designed to remove all water after washing. It works great for removing water out of the nooks and crannies, but if I'm trying to dry an entire panel, then the water spots remain. I was looking for a way to avoid having to hand dry the entire car after washing, but I may have to resort back to it. I will probably still use the Blaster to get the water out from the hard to reach areas and hand dry the rest of the panels.

It's a blast!
May 14, 2014
This is advertised as a motorcycle dryer, but after pouring over the features and prices of the big dryer and/or vacuum units I decided to give this a try on my roadster. After all, it isn't that much bigger than a mc and fewer nooks and crannies. It works as advertised. Blows a strong, warm blast of air and will easily blow excess water out of any seams...i.e. by windows, between panels, wheel spokes, mirrors, etc. It's not quite enough to completely dry the vehicle fast enough without water spotting, but with a mf waffle in the other hand, works great. I think if I had used my California blade and/or gone over with a waffle cloth first, it would have finished it off perfectly. Next time.
Solidly built, easy to hold and operate. Small size allows you to move around the vehicle quickly. Very strong warm air blast, especially with the pointed attachment. Reasonable price for a quality tool.
None, really. Some have complained about the short cord (just a few inches). But I actually found that was a pro, because it kept the cord connection point up and away from the wet ground and allowed me to use a very long extension that was connected far away from the wash site.

Best $80 I ever spent

Very powerful and easy to use. The blower and a waffle weave is all I use to completely dry a car with no drips.
Easy to control and powerful

What a powerful little blower!
February 22, 2014
I used to blow dry my car with an electric blower and it was bulky and it was very loud. The Sidekick was much quieter and I could get at the small cracks and gaps better and more accurate than the Electric Blower because of the Sidekicks size. Now I use that to blow dry about 65-75% of my car when I am in the drying process after a wash. What a great little blower. This should be in everyone's arsenal especially if you are drying your car.
Much easier to use than an electric leaf blower. Much more quiet and more accurate.
The power cord is really short. Must use a longer extension cord just to get around the entire car.
