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.

Tip from the pros:
So you dried off your entire vehicle using the Metro SideKick and the softest, most absorbent towels known to man - the Waffle Weave Guzzler, but when you walk out to the vehicle a couple hours later your worst nightmare becomes a reality - drips of water have created unsightly water spots! Don’t sweat it; these annoying droplets of water are bound to happen, no matter how careful you are. They come from behind emblems, in between body panels, fuel filler doors, and any other crack or crevice where water can hide. Don’t panic and grab a towel only to vigorously rub the surface, inflicting toweling marks (fancy for scratches). Instead, grab a bottle of McKee's 37 High Gloss Detail Spray and a Gold Plush Jr. Microfiber Towel. Spray the affected area and wipe away the water spots – it’s that easy! You’ll appreciate the added gloss and slickness, so much so that you might even be tempted to wipe down the entire car (go for it!).

Dont let the smaller size fool you
I use this on my sedan and it works great, at first I was expecting a small bit of air due to the size, however dont judge a book by it's cover. This product rocks wonder where I was all my life without this product. I can use it dry the whole car or even reach to the cracks it works great. Im happy I went with this product instead of the the bigger one.
ProsDrys well, extremely powerful for such a compact machine, the covers are plastic and wont scratch your car, it is high quality made in usa you can tell the quality as soon as you open it.
Conswish the cable was a little longer because you have to use an extension anytime you use this.

Surprisingly powerful
Just purchased the Sidekick and must say I am impressed. For such a small and light unit, it packs quite a powerful blast. I would recommend this to anyone.
Pros- Light - Powerful blowing power
Cons- The power cord on it is ridiculously short. About a foot long. I understand it had to be plugged to an extension cord, but come on, it barelly has enough leght to do the dictonnection protection knot.

Works Great
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.
ProsLight weight and powerful for the money.
ConsSupplied Wide diffuser useless.

Makes drying much easier.
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.
ProsEasy 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.
ConsNone so far.

Great product for a great price
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!
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.
ProsSolidly 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.
ConsNone, 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.
ProsEasy to control and powerful

What a powerful little blower!
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.
ProsMuch easier to use than an electric leaf blower. Much more quiet and more accurate.
ConsThe power cord is really short. Must use a longer extension cord just to get around the entire car.
