I’ve recently had my hands on a fresh product from Eyce. It’s said to be the perfect match of traditional honeycomb filtration and contemporary, modern design. In this review, we’ll look at the highlights of the newest addition to the Eyce collection. Honestly, I’m barely sure what I’m in for so continue reading below and join me in this review.
Time for a Ride
It sure fits the bill. Eyce bongs have been one of my personal favorites since they’re, should I say, “ride-friendly?” For people who’d ride a motorcycle instead of driving a four-wheeled can, durable and reliable smoking devices are a must. It’s a totally different game riding on two wheels compared to cruising on a car. Picture this, a small pothole is felt exponentially by motorcycle riders, unlike automobile drivers who can easily brush off these bumps. Putting your fragile glass bubbler in your bag isn’t exactly the best way to carry it around. Honestly, I put a lot of stuff in my bag and I’ve found myself picking up shattered glass pieces on several occasions. Similarly, people who like to travel, those who commute by train or by bus, tend to keep their smoking essentials stashed in their bags. You don’t want to be on the subway holding your bubbler or your bong right? Not unless you’re boarding the stoner train, then, carrying it in public is probably not the best way to go.
Eyce bongs and bubblers are one of the most durable smoking equipment you’d find on the market today. They’re made out of platinum cured silicone and the glass pieces are made from durable borosilicate glass. Eyce says they’re nearly indestructible and frankly, they are. I’ve had my Eyce Hammer for more than a year now and it still looks and works exactly the same as it was when I first had it. Even If I put it in my bag along with my laptop, my phone, and other smoking essentials. It makes no mess. It’s a true testament to the quality of American made products and with that said, I’d like to point out that Eyce bongs are made in American soil. Eyce is a company based in Colorado Springs and is run by brothers Charles and Bruce Hoch. I’ve run around town with the Eyce Sidecar in my bag, and like the Eyce Hammer, the Sidecar is ride-proof. I’d imagine you can take this on camping trips, beach escapades, or just on long weekends in your cozy cabin. It’s simply made to last, it’s built to work even after Armageddon or zombie apocalypse.
At a Glance
Holding the Eyce Sidecar felt exactly the same as holding any other product made by Eyce. The silicone materials feel strong enough to withstand even doomsday. The glass pieces fit snugly enough which prevents any leaks from the bubbler. The pieces are easy to assemble though you might feel a little resistance at first. The swiveling neck is a neat feature since you won’t have to be confined to one smoking position. You can adjust it whichever way it suits you. The Eyce Sidecar features four tool slots which allow you to keep all your smoking essentials organized and in one place which makes preparations easier.

Smoking the Sidecar
The quality of smoke is greatly improved by the honeycomb filter. It’s obvious that honeycomb filtration reduces resin and other substances produced when you light up your materials. The smoke is slightly cooled and the flared mouthpiece made drawing from the Eyce Sidecar easier. I think that the design of the honeycomb filter creates better draw allowance because of its umpteen holes. I got consistent hits without feeling much of a drag. The swiveling neck makes for an ambidextrous experience. Having wrapped in heat resistant platinum cured silicone allowed me to have better grip without having to worry about getting my fingers burned.
Overall, the Sidecar yields softer toke and seriously fewer coughing.
Maintenance and Upkeep
Like any other smoking equipment, you have to clean your Eyce Sidecar from time to time. I cleaned my bubbler right after using it, Eyce does not recommend using alcohol-based solutions in cleaning the Sidecar bubbler. It breaks down the silicone.
A mixture of mild soap and warm water is enough to keep the Sidecar spick and span. You can soak the glass pieces in this solution and lightly brush the silicone parts using the same concoction or you can even load it in your dishwasher, whatever floats your boat. Freezing the Eyce Sidecar is another way of cleaning it. You can store the Sidecar overnight in your fridge, pop it open the next day and twist the silicone to remove any remaining residue. Wash it thoroughly with water to remove any remaining ice on the silicone, dry it with a paper towel and voila!
The Eyce Sidecar is a unique bubbler that stands out amongst its all-glass counterparts. By sporting a silicone shell, the Eyce Sidecar shines the most where all-glass bubblers fail. I basically stash it in my bag and just sling it over my back. In my case, it makes for worry-free travels and lets me focus more on driving rather than worrying. I find that it’s one of its strongest suit apart from including honeycomb filtration into the smoking equation.
It’s a bubbler I’d recommend to anyone especially to those who are oftentimes away and are always on-the-go. If you’re the kind of cannabis consumer who is always on your feet, then the Eyce Sidecar is the perfect smoking sidekick for you. Be amongst the first to own an Eyce Sidecar and experience unparalleled smoking convenience wherever you may go.
