About the Product
TRICO Flex® lets you step up from a conventional windshield wiper blade to premium beam blade wiper technology at a reasonable price.
The NeoForm Wiper Blade features an aerodynamic spoiler that helps reduce wind-lift at highway speeds and enhances styling. The blade is designed to provide constant pressure across the entire length of the blade to help ensure a uniform wipe. NeoForm blades offer durable, all-weather performance.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
TRICO Flex 18-2617B Universal Beam Wiper Blade
  • These fit great. Were easy to install in seconds AND remove water well and don't make any of those horrendous wiper noises associated with cheap blades.
  • I bought these to replace my ragged pieces of what used to be windshield wipers on my car and they work well. I ended up buying the longest blade length my car supports without really knowing it so they pretty much touch the edge of my windshield but they still work well.
  • Installation is very easy once you know what you're doing, but works a little different than other blades, and can be confusing if you don't. The wiper comes with a plastic connector already mounted, but it's the wrong one for the Equinox.
  • Nice fit. These wipers have a easy on/off connectors.
  • This wiper blade doesn’t have the appearance or fit of the original OEM blade. Some disassembly and reassembly of the adaptor is required.
  • They are wipers and they do the job. 3 stars is for the Ford proprietary connector. I have never seen wipers that were this needlessly convoluted and difficult to install before.
TRICO NeoForm 16-220 Beam Wiper Blades w/Teflon
  • These were on my SUV when I bought it, 3 years and 25 kmiles ago. Did a great job up to and after rubber separation.
  • I replaced my Saturn's OEM Blades with these after a fight over just replacing the rubber. Mine were falling apart. Boy am I happy I went with these. I replaced them right before a massive storm. Testing them with the windshield cleaning fluid they completely cleared the window.
  • I have bought tons of windshield wipers in my day, but these new pvc/rubber wipers are awesome! They get the windshield cleaned in 1-2 swipes, and dont make any noise, or have any drag.
  • Very poor connection and did not fit the standard u-hook that most new cars have. Could not figure this out and gave up. Should not be so difficult.
  • No wiper chatter, smooth action, the blade comforms to my Jeep Liberty windsheild, and the rubber flexes correctly with each pass.

What customers say about "Features"
TRICO Flex 18-2617B Universal Beam Wiper Blade
  • Awesome blade, cleared up my windows right away after the change. Also, a snap to install! I had the J-hook frame.
  • After about a month this has held up well so far...then again I didn't get to test it to see how well it holds up in winter weather.
  • We've had these wipers on the car now for 2 months and they're still working perfectly, even at higher speeds with light mist -- a condition that seems to be the hardest for most wipers to deal with.
  • In just a few months (with maybe one or two rainfall) the middle of the rubber on both blades was tearing away from the frame.
  • These blades work okay, about as well as Rain-X Latitudes, but the materials are extremely low quality.
TRICO NeoForm 16-220 Beam Wiper Blades w/Teflon
  • Prompt delivery, clear installation instructions. Seems to be holding up to Wyoming winter so far.
  • Works extremely well in Chicago winter. Best fit / performance found so far for replacement blades for the FJ - Which are hard to find!
  • I drive about 12k miles per year. It is not especially wet in Connecticut, but these blades do get exposed to ice, snow, and salt during the winter.
  • So i put on the 22 inch on the driver side then i tried putting this one on and i had the worst time getting it fo fit right without it leaving an unwiped spot on the window was a pain. On top of that the end on the passenger side doesnt stick to the window all the way so there is a small gap.
  • The adaptor somehow came out and I had to spend about 20 minutes jamming it back in... Installation of these probably best left to professionals.
  • This wiper rapidly accumulates ice that prevents it from operating correctly in inclement weather. I frequently needed to pull over and manually remove chunks of ice to keep my windshield clear.
