The SideKick is ideal for those small drying jobs, engine bays, wheels, mirrors, headlights & grill surrounds where water likes to hide - corroding in silence & ready to streak the moment you drive away. The perfect car detailer - for car drying use larger models..

The SideKick is ideal for drying your motorcycle whether naked or faired, sportbike or custom dripping in chrome. The Sidekick Dryer will blow and dry the water from all the nooks and crannies where water likes to hide - corroding in silence & ready to streak the moment you ride away.

The SideKick is equally at home on the driveway or on the road and makes an economical pack along to complement your home-based Blaster or Master Blaster!

Don't forget your hose!

Customer Reviews:

Sidekick; after seeing advert in Practical Classic mechanics & after checking reviews , I decided to take the plunge & purchase a Sidekick to use on my Suzuki bandit.

As I was unfamiliar with this machine I spoke to colin who was very helpful & informative, delivery arrived quickly & as stated, (& yes I had my doubts how good it would be ) but was amazed how quickly it dried my bike & streak free, 15 mins & it looked like my bike had never been out on road ;}

No more concerns about being out in bad weather or being a (fair weather) driver, wash down & 15 mins later & she is dry & ready to be put to bed.

Others have issues about the Sidekicks weight , but I haven't any issues, don't think its heavy @ all, any biker worth his salt that prides his machine must have already possessed a Sidekick dryer ;) if not then buy one asap ;)

I now even use it to dry off my lid, can't rate this dryer high enough & Colin is definitely the (go2guy) re issues or queries (but don’t tell him ;)

Outstanding service! I had an issue with my otherwise excellent Sidekick Bike Dryer which stopped working after 5 years of constant use. I left an email on the Sunday asking where I could get it repaired and assumed that I'd probably never hear anything and I'd accept that after 5 years it was at the end of its life. Colin rang me at 9:10 the next day. He identified on the phone what he thought the issue was and as I was travelling to Bournemouth the next week anyway, I said I would take it for him to look at. He repaired my dryer whilst I waited and he supplied a new switch at no charge! Outstanding service! I rarely leave feedback but I am truly impressed. Highly recommended.

Not only is this a great product the customer service and knowledge of Colin and his team at Killerbrands is excellent. Can’t recommend them enough

Mark King

Since I bought it, I have used it every time I have washed one of my cars. It is absolutely brilliant in blowing out the water that lurks in those difficult to reach places where the water subsequently runs out when the car is moved. One of my cars is a Morris Minor Traveller (with the wood) and previously I haven't been able to dry around and behind the wood, but I can with the car dryer. I also no longer have to struggle to dry the alloy wheels on my other cars by hand; just blast them with the dryer and they dry perfectly. Finally, I have used the dryer for a number of other useful purposes, for example, for blowing out the leaves stuck in the air vents. Would I recommend this product? Absolutely, it is brilliant

Colin Beale

Thanks for the great service . The Side Kick Dryer has arrived.

Paul Lund

The sidekick just arrived today and as I planned to clean my car, I thought I'd give it a shot and it does work well! Many thanks for your warm and speedy customer service.

Abu Razzaque

Just a quick note to say I am very happy with my Sidekick Dryer and pleased you recommended that I also buy the flexible hose. Not only does it blow out water but it was great in the engine bay at blowing out the muck that accumulates in places you can’t reach.

David Harriss

Brilliant service and products. Better price than other sites I've visited. Highly recommended.

Frances Carter

I did not buy a hose with my Side Kick as I was not sure how good it would be. I was really surprised how well it worked, it's very powerful for such a small unit. I then ordered a 3ft hose, it has made Drying so much easier now that I really like using it, it is so much easier, the only downside is I had to pay another £5.94 carriage!!! Great product 5 star rating!

Mark Baretta

I bought a Side Kick & went for the 3ft accessory hose, I am so glad I did as it makes drying all of the difficult to reach parts of the bike easy & most of all it doesn't make your wrist ache manoeuvring the Side Kick around!

Paul Stewart

I am really pleased with my Side Kick and it has made a huge difference to cleaning and polishing Cleaning and drying my bike has never been easier. My Triumph Thunderbird has a serious amount of chrome and drying has always been real chore. It has lots of books and crannies and get to them has always been a challenge but my Side Kick made all that a thing of the past. Getting to those concealed and difficult places was simple and the dry smear free finish has reduced the work load and time in getting a spotless bike.
