Product Description

The Rupes BigFoot iBrid Nano, in short, is a small handheld polisher that will allow you to polish tough to reach spaces. It is the first buffer of it's kind that gives you unparalleled access to tight spaces in a battery powered polisher. iBrid allows the user to switch between rotary, 3mm random orbital, and 12mm random orbital actions very quickly. This gives you an unparalleled amount of versatility and power for any job you throw at it. Heavy imperfections, light imperfections, swirls, RIDS, it really does not matter, iBrid will remove these imperfections with ease! Just press the lock button at the top of the head of the polisher to release the backing plate. You can then attach any of the backing plates you desire, pads (1.25" and 2" sizes), brushes, accessories, etc. The LUX Kit Long and BLX Kits both come with pads, polishes, backing plates, and a brush to help you clean hard to reach areas such as areas on your paint, near headlights, side skirts, wheels, etc. If you do not want to pick up all these accessories, the Long Neck and Short Neck sizes come at a lower price point, without any pads, brushes, backing plates, etc. You can however pick up any accessories you desire individually here. The compact and lightweight design make this unit easy to hold with only one hand and the start/stop lever is found on the handle, making starting and stopping very easy. The on/off speed control dial features five working speeds (0-5 at 2000-5000 RPMs) and a soft start control. Everything we have listed seems pretty amazing right? Well there is more! Have you ever been burdened by a corded polisher and wished you had a battery pack? Well the iBrid has made that wish come true. iBrid can not only be used with a cord, but with a battery as well! Each unit comes with a "Plug & Play Power Supply" which allows it to act like any other corded tool, but it also comes with two Li-ION battery packs and a battery charger. 22-24 minutes is all you will need to charge the battery and each charge will give you 30 minutes of run time under full load. The two battery packs allow you to use one in the tool, while charging the other. You will always have a battery charged and ready to switch out. Speaking of switching the batteries out, this is as easy as it is to switch out a backing plate. On the base of the unit there is two clips that when depressed will release the battery. Pull the old one out and slide the new one in, it is that easy! LED indicators on the unit and the battery charger will keep you informed on how much power you have left in the battery pack you are using, and when your backup is charged and ready to go. If you have a larger polisher and are looking for something to tackle small areas this is perfect for you. This will be an incredibly effective tool for motorcycle details, spoilers, front bumpers, side mirrors, door handles, air intakes, side scoops, etc. the Rupes BigFoot iBrid Nano will be an amazing addition to your detailing collection!

Note: The L DLX and DLX are now the LUX Kit Long and BLX . This is the same great units, but the soft case has been updated to a hard case.

Professional Detailer Reviews

Overall, we have found the Rupes iBrid Nano to be a welcome addition to the Rupes lineup. The tool certainly has its limitations, but it enables us to get into areas that were previously not accessible with larger machines.

Love the machine and does everything I need it to do.

Bare with me here because we are going to talk about long vs short neck, kit vs essentials and the i-birds use case over a dedicated small buffer.

Use case: The i-bird is a great unit that makes quick work over tight areas like door knobs, door jams, razor thin paint trim portions and awkward/tight lines around license plate brackets to name a few. Now on something like my Rupes mini I can get to a lot with it while getting good results, but I can't get everything. Sometimes you need a 1.25-2in pad with the tinier head the i-bird provides to take your results to the next level. To be clear the i-bird is an add on to a dedicated small buffer, not a replacement. I am not going to go around and use my i-bird on the spots my LHR 15 big foot mk III won't get, using my LHR 75 for that.

Long vs Short neck: I splurged on the long neck version because it was only $30 more. I don't own the short neck, but I have yet to come across a use case where the added length of the long neck added anything. My recommendation is save $30 and get the short neck.

I-bird kit vs essentials: Get the kit. The reason why is that you will use 95% of what this kit offers on your first car to do the job right. Every little tool here has a very unique purpose and buying the kit makes sense. The kit also comes with a nice rugged case that has very clear cut outs for everything and goes further by providing very clearly labelling what every tool/part is in the kit.

Overall this kit/i-bird is a must have for anyone that does detailing for money or has the budget to justify this tool in what it brings to the table. As with any buffer you have to learn it and perfect your technique, the i-bird is no exception. I use rupes buffers, which function differently than most DA's, so picking up the i-bird was quick and easy for me. My point is understand you may have to adjust your technique some when using the i-bird. With the proper pad, product and technique the i-bird has a surprising amount of correction capability.
