Sidekick was born to deliver portable comfort with a lightweight and impact-resistant design. Perfect to wheel out at sporting games or school stages.

Product Highlights

Sidekick is specifically designed to serve smaller spaces where other Big Ass fans may not be practical. At just 1.2m in diameter, it features a quiet, yet powerful direct-drive motor that moves up to 7 cubic meters of air per second.

With a durable, impact-resistant steel frame, Sidekick can withstand ball strikes with little to no maintenance required. Its portable design, quiet motor, and 3-year warranty make it the perfect choice for schools looking for a flexible cooling solution.

Energy Usage

With Sidekick’s 500w motor, this fan uses minimal energy to deliver powerful airflow, creating comfortable conditions far more efficiently than air conditioning.

By reducing existing HVAC costs by up to 30%, Sidekick pays for itself in no time. And with an estimated annual operational cost of just $346 per year (about $1.33 per day), you can enjoy the benefits of this energy-efficient fan without breaking the bank.
