COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2014 – After selling out of its game-changing Whip Mounts at the Sand Sports Super Show for four consecutive years, Wash-15 Offroad has gone transcontinental. With over 130 dealers from California to New York, Wash-15 continues to offer the highest level of product quality to keep customers safe and visible while riding their ATVs and dirt bikes or driving their side by sides, dune buggies and 4x4s.
“The simplest innovations make the biggest difference when you’re behind the handlebars or the wheel,” said Steve Shaffstall, Co-Founder of Wash-15 Offroad. “After 40 years of no innovation, riders have realized that the fundamental problem of mounting safety whips has finally been solved.”
An essential safety accessory required by law in many areas, safety whips topped with brightly colored flags increase a rider’s visibility and prevent collisions. While whips are valuable safety equipment, a quick and easy way to secure them to vehicles, especially after a crash has occurred, has never been available – until now.
The Wash-15 Whip Mount uses patented clamping technology to eliminate both time- and labor-intensive steps that riders must take to remount broken whips, increasing their height, impact on visibility and value in preventing collisions. Riders no longer need to worry about carrying knifes or tools, and can mount two different size whips simultaneously. No matter how bad the break, in seconds they’ll be ready to ride.
Hailed by UTV Offroad Magazine, Sand Sports magazine, Cycle News, UTVGuide.com, ATVRiders.com and others, with five star reviews such as “One of the best products I’ve seen in a long time” by ATV Rider Magazine, Wash-15 products have proven themselves time and again. Legendary champion racer Malcolm Smith himself has called the product “pretty neat”, the same phrase he used to describe racing the Elsinore Grand Prix in On Any Sunday.
Wash-15 offers two multi-size versions of its Whip Mounts for riders and drivers: 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch or 5/16-inch and 3/8-inch. While competing products hold only one size flag, causing riders to worry about which whip to buy, the Wash-15 Whip Mount can hold either diameter or both simultaneously. Riders can carry an extra whip for themselves or a riding partner, or ride with one flag and bring back lost whips they find on the trail. This also allows dealers to carry half the inventory of flags they normally would need to accommodate other ‘one-size-only’ mounts.
The Wash-15 Whip Mount mounts to any vehicle with a standard 1/2-inch diameter receiver hole. Machined of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade billet aluminum in the United States, it is currently available in anodized red, blue, green, gold, pink, black or silver. To learn more visit www.wash15offroad.
