Cyclone Drying Systems is the ONLY drying system that provides BOTH high volume of air AND high volume of heat. Other solutions typically provide one or the other – there are solutions with heat but lack any air capacity or, conversely, solutions with air flow but no serious heat capacity. Cyclone, on the other hand, is engineered to provide the perfect combination of massive airflow along with gear drying warmth. As a result, the Cyclone product line delivers unparalleled drying performance in terms of dry times and managing wet gear and equipment.
This unique and superior Cyclone design covers the complete product line – from the two pair locker dryer to the full scale commercial grade forty-eight pair units for the most demanding environments. That is why customers rave about the product from residential ski homes, to fire departments, to Collegiate Athletics, to NFL Football Teams.
With the newly designed 8 Pair V2, Cyclone offers major benefits over the previous model. Namely, more drying in a more compact unit. The overall weight, height and width has been reduced by up to 35% over the previous model, thus, allowing the unit to fit conveniently into more locations.
The new design is a high end appliance which can be proudly installed alongside other upper end appliances in custom and vacation homes such as ski and water front homes, and lodges. Likewise, this unit will standout and fits perfectly into utility rooms, garages, and shops.
The 8 Pair is a great solution for lower drying volume needs for Athletic Equipment Managers, Fire Departments, Ski Patrol, and other first responders.
Sixteen (16) drying arms safely deliver enough warm air to dry 8 pairs of boots, 8 pairs of gloves or 16 helmets. Use the convenient apparel adapter extensions (sold separately) to dry jackets, pants and other types of apparel with ease. Plugs directly into common 110 Volt wall socket.
Best of all, the unit mounts in minutes with a simple wall mount bracket so you will be enjoying the warm benefits of Cyclone immediately.

“Cyclone Dryers are a superior product!! We love the glove dryer and our 8 pair. Multiple teams use both of the items, so they are always in use”

I want to express my sincere appreciation for your generous donation of the boot dryer.
That is awesome that you would invest in the education and athletics of today’s youth.
The boot dryer will be used for generations to aid our program and further the skills of the student athletes here at Lakeland.
The boot dryer will defiantly go to good use. I have showed the boot dryer to some of our other coaches and everyone has been very impressed with it and the quality of products you make and are considering getting one for their program as well. The ball dryer, helmet dryer, and the other attachments are really innovative. We are excited to see how we can fully utilize this boot dryer.
I also want to give a big thanks to James Hook. He really stepped up and helped us out.
The hawk head looks amazing as well as the Lakeland football logo on top. James was a big help and very supportive.
Thank you, again for supporting our program here at Lakeland High School.

We just finished building our family's ski cabin to serve as a base for our young children's race aspirations. Previously, we were using a cheap plastic boot dryer (which had broken and been replaced at least twice) and we knew that it was time to find the right product for boot, glove, and equipment drying.
We had seen one of the Cyclone boot dryers at a charity auction, where Heater Craft had generously donated one of the smaller dryers to support kid's ski racing, and wanted to investigate further. We were pleasantly surprised to see that Heater Craft made larger, wall-mount boot dryers. We ended up choosing the 8-pair dryer (for our family of four).
My first thought -- probably yours too -- is that this is an investment. However, my personal view after spending a weekend with equipment on the dryer three days is that the investment is absolutely worth it, and this is a truly exceptional product.
Installation was relatively simple. The dryer comes with a wall bracket and then hangs from the wall. Boots and gloves dry quickly and -- most importantly for our custom molded boots -- the air is warm, but not too hot (i.e., it's not going to re-mold your insoles or boots).
On the whole, I absolutely recommend the 8-pair dryer. Truly exceptional product, quick shipping, and nice people.

I have just upgraded from the previous version four pair Cyclone dryer to the new eight pair unit in our ski cabin at Schweitzer Mountain in North Idaho. We had simply loved the Cyclone dryer we've used for the past several years. Initially, the four pair unit was plenty big enough for a family of three. However, we have enjoyed the convenience and drying capacity and use it for nearly every piece of equipment and clothing -- ski boots, shoes, helmets, gloves, socks, coats, pants, etc. Also, our teenage son often brings a friend and so this year it was time to "upgrade" to the new style V2 Eight Pair unit.
Here are my findings as a user:
1. We love the new design. The classy angles and the stainless look top and bottom (powder coated) gives the unit a very high end look and feel.
2. The size of the new eight pair fits in the same location as the four pair did. It is shorter in height and only slightly wider. We got double the dryer capacity in nearly the same footprint which made it easy as I didn't have to find or modify a location.
3. The unit is very quiet when running.
4. The heat is instantaneous when starting. This is a remarkable feature as the unit starts drying immediately.
5. New front location for the timer switch. The previous unit had the switch located on the bottom side of the unit. Since I had to mount the unit in a tight spot near an adjoining wall, I had to operate the switch by feel as I could not see it. The new switch is located on the front of the unit and so it is now more user friendly. Simply choose: 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour or 2 hour with the timer option. Very easy and very clean design.
The unit was easy to install with the provided wall mounted bracket and hardware.
Since I am the "ski dad", my family looks to me to manage (read dry) our ski gear. When we return from skiing, our boots are the first thing that goes onto the unit followed by gloves. It is simply awesome that the unit also provides convenient storage for all the gear. Before Cyclone, our gear was laid out all over the cabin attempting to get dry. I usually select "1 Hour" on the timer and that's it. Later, I will remove the dry boots and gloves and place any other needed items on to dry. If nothing else, then the equipment stays on the unit until the next ski day.
Before skiing is my favorite use of the Cyclone dryer. Fifteen minutes before we leave to go skiing, I turn on the unit with our boots and gloves. There is just something extremely pleasant about putting warm equipment on right before going out into the cold conditions.
As a lifetime skier, I have used other dryers and there is simply no comparison. Even though the unit is pricey (what high end appliance isn't?), it is worth it in terms of convenience and quality of "ski life." I've had the plastic units that took all night to dry a pair of boots because of heat only and no air flow. We constantly had to choose between dry boots or dry gloves because it took so long. Alternately, as a ski racing family I've witnessed the smaller portable dryers that blow air but with little or no heat also take a very long time. The game changer with Cyclone is the abundance of heat AND airflow for 16 drying tubes simultaneously! The drying capacity is simply remarkable. No more compromising and no more all night managing equipment for drying.

We love our cyclone heater. Not only does it dry boots rapidly, but it's a family favorite for warming boots and coats on those bitter winter mornings. We have ours in the entryway, and a favorite trick is to warm guests coats before they depart. They all enjoy the pleasant surprise.

As any skier or boarder knows, starting off the day with wet, cold boots or gloves can be lead to misery on the mountain. Formerly, attempting to keep the family's ski boots and gloves dry was a formidable task with items strewn over heat registers throughout our home. That all changed with our purchase of the Cyclone Boot Dryer. Now we have one centralized location to dry and warm all of the family's gear. No more damp, cold and clammy ski boots & gloves to gather and pry on in the morning. One cycle with the boot dryer completely dries four pair of boots or gloves. A quick touch up in the morning makes them warm and cozy. These dryers are fantastic! I would highly recommend this product to any family that is serious about skiing or snowboarding.

Dear Cyclone Drying Systems by Heater Craft,
Just a quick note to let you know how great these dryers are! As you know, we are experiencing extreme cold this ski season. It is incredible to turn the boot dryer on for 10 or 15 minutes before I boot up and have the boot totally warm and easy to put on. After skiing, a 30 or 40 minute cycle completely dries my boots. Additionally, my family and guests are amazed with the comfort and convenience they experience. My ski condo and ski room are now complete! Thanks again and congrats to the Cyclone Drying Systems by Heater Craft crew for a wonderful manufacturing project!
