I have noticed a new type wiper blade on the market classified as a Beam Blade or Bracket Less Wiper. It seems they came out in Europe and are now in the U.S. market.
When I saw this type of wiper on a new Audi I went to investigate if they where available as a replacement. I thought I would post this because they are the first wiper blades that have worked on my car and performed better than anything I have tried before. They work equally as well when traveling down the highway at 75 mph, not with Casita
in tow of course.
I found the Trico brand called “Innovision” at local auto parts store. They are considered all weather because there is no bracket that ice can get caught in which causes the normal wiper blade to not function as well.
Looking on the Internet I see that Bosch has one under the “Icon” name and Valeo under the “Ultimate Wiper” name. When I was at Wal-Mart the other day I saw that they carry the Valeo brand which seems to be better quality than Trico.
I thought they performed so well I would mention it here in case others have not seen or heard of this type of wiper blade and might be looking for a better replacement.
I have included a link to the Trico web site which will have more information on this type of blade. Hope someone finds this useful!
