TRABUCO CANYON, Calif., May 15, 2012 – Celebrating its two-year anniversary, Wash-15 Offroad is pleased to announce its partnership with Chaparral Motorsports as its 30th retailer. The Wash-15 Whip Mount, the company’s signature product that has redesigned the traditional method of mounting and dismounting safety flags, is now available to riders in Chaparral’s San Bernardino superstore, online and through its catalog.
“The whip mount has been reinvented, and riders and dealers across the country are taking notice,” said Scott Shaffstall, co-founder and President of Wash-15 Offroad. “From selling out at the 2011 Sand Sports Super Show to being awarded five out of five stars by ATV Rider Magazine, the feedback shows that our mounts are what riders have been waiting for. Bringing a dealership as prestigious as Chaparral Motorsports into ourgreat group of retailers is the perfect way to celebrate our second anniversary.”
Wash-15 Whip Mounts are now available in five states including California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Idaho, as well as online at www.chaparral-racing.com. The product has received acclaim from numerous media outlets, including being hailed as “One of the best products I’ve seen in a long time” by ATV Rider Magazine Editor-in-Chief Eli Madero, being featured in CycleNews’ Product Showcase and being labeled as a Sand Sports Super Show favorite product by both UTVGuide.net and ATVRiders.com.
Wash-15 Offroad completely sold out of its Whip Mounts at the 2011 Sand Sports Super Show. Customers flooded the Wash-15 display at the world’s largest event for sand enthusiasts to purchase mounts for their ATVs, dirt bikes, side by sides and 4x4s.
“The benefits Wash-15 brings to riders are obvious for anyone who has ever ridden with a flag,” said Steve Shaffstall, co-founder and Vice President of Wash-15 Offroad. “Using patent-pending clamping technology, our Whip Mounts quickly and easily mount any 1/4- or 5/16-inch whip, even if severely broken after a crash. Riders no longer need to carry tools or cut off broken edges to remount their flag, which takes time away from riding and often results in fiberglass shards becoming imbedded in hands or gloves. It’s the first and only true quick-release mounting system.”
In only seconds, riders can loosen the wing screw by hand, remove the mounting plate and insert the whip, then replace the mounting plate and tighten. A recessed interior easily accommodates frayed ends. With Wash-15’s dual-mounting option, riders can either carry an extra whip in case a fellow rider breaks or loses their own, or safely mount discarded whips they find in their riding areas, allowing them to recycle and save money while keeping their trails clean of debris.
With its compact design, the Wash-15 Whip Mount can be used on any vehicle with a standard 1/2 inch bolthole. Proudly machined in the U.S.A. out of 6061 T6 aircraft-grade billet aluminum, it is currently available in anodized red, blue, black and silver. MSRP is $29.99.
