9” Mini Gelblade Helping Make Short Work Of Big Jobs, Again!

HOLLISTER, CA – July 31, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – After making big news with the original 12” Waterblade, the One Pass people are back at it. Their new 9” Mini Gelblade is perfect for all those tight spots around the shop and for the paintwork on custom motorcycles. Originally designed as a tool for industrial applications, the all purpose wet-dry Waterblade is equally adept at home or shop use.

“We have been making short work of big jobs since 1996,” says Don Varner, who created the One Pass silicone gel blades. “At 9 inches this is literally making short work out of big jobs around the shop… it is also better for use on motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-sides. A lot of my friends were telling me the 12” blade was too unwieldy for the powersports market.”

Originally designed to displace water from the surfaces of Varner’s own award winning hot rods, the Gelblades are faster and more sanitary than towels, or chamois. The patented Y-Blade edge conforms to most surface shapes and removes more than 90% of fluid quickly in “one pass” — leaving a clean, dry surface behind on virtually any vehicle. Additionally, the flexible silicone blade conforms to curved surfaces on fenders and fuel tanks.

However, the One Pass Mini is more than a one-hit wonder! It works equally well around the shop floor, countertops or even the bath area. By nature, silicone does not support bacterial or microbial growth, so it’s suitable for wet locations like wash bays and restrooms. Where other materials tend to harbor growth, silicone remains mildew free. Silicone is also safe for nearly all cleaning products and can withstand temperature extremes from -80 to +400 degrees Fahrenheit.

About One Pass USA

One Pass founder Don Varner is a professional innovator, inveterate tinkerer and legend in the automotive world. Hot rod enthusiasts might recognize him as the designer behind such famous custom ‘Rods as El Matador, Silhouette and The California Star. Varner turned the custom world on its ear back in 1984 when California Star took top honors at the Grand National Oakland Roadster Show. Despite enormous controversy, Don’s version of the classic 1927 Model T earned the title “World’s Most Beautiful Roadster” and cemented his place in the automotive world. It was this kind of disruptive solution that brought the original Water Blade into existence, upending the car care world in the process. That sounds a bit dramatic, but take a look at how many copies have hit the market since and you’ll see what we mean. When we released the first Water Blade in 1996, it was called the “Original California Water Blade” — now it’s simply Original Water Blade. Don takes enormous pride in every product he designs, so you know if it bears the One Pass name, it’s a game changer!
