About the Product
TRICO Force® is a robustly engineered high wind beam blade with a patented swept-wing spoiler that slices through wind speeds in excess of 135 MPH (220 KPH) caused by cross winds, buffeting truck winds and general traffic turbulence.
The best solution for the winter season is the ICON beam wiper blade. By design, beam blades are not affected by snow and ice buildup. The bracketless design and tension springs help keep the blade flexible and provide superior wiping performance in all weather conditions.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
TRICO Force 25-220 High Performance Beam Wiper Blade
  • Wipes windows completely clear when raining, sleet, snow and hale.
  • These wipers fit perfectly on my Ford 2010 Expedition and 2013 Explorer. Both vehicles use a different attachment on the wiper blade, but the Trico wipers have both types of fittings to connect to the blades.
  • Perfect replacement for an Audi A4 2008. It's just like the OEM ones and connects to the slide on clips. No more windshield wiper streaks for me!
  • Bought as a replacement for a 2015 CRV. Doesn't wipe the glass completely. Leaves a three inch wide unwiped gap in the middle of the glass. Too much arch in the blade construction.
  • It broke (rubber broken) after 1.5 years. Consider we rely on mostly repellent most of the time and rarely used it after moving to California, it's durability is strongly questioned consider its price.
Bosch ICON Beam Winter/Summer Wiper Blade
  • I bought the wrong version of this wiper the first time since Amazon says it fit my car, but it was only the length that Amazon was checking.
  • The fact that Bosch offers not just a variety of lengths down the inch, but also two different spring forces, is another indicator of the fact that these are not your average wiper blades.
  • The connectors to the wiper arms is very secure and doesn't feel as flimsy as rain-x which is why I had to replace them in the first place (the connector broke and sent my wiper flying off the car!)10/10 will buy again.
  • I have used Bosch on my Acura TL and C6 Vette with good results so I am not sure if I simply got a bad blade or the length along with the MDX arm design was the issue.
  • Also, when comparing the length of original to these replacements, they are too long by at least 1.5 to 2 inches.

What customers say about "Features"
TRICO Force 25-220 High Performance Beam Wiper Blade
  • Metal Lump in the Middle that is good for pushing snow off.
  • The big plus is the anti-lift feature to keep the blades from flying and skipping at highway speeds or the crosswind is just wrong. I like that.
  • No metal frame so far they wipe excellent and no ice build up I'm glad I purchased trico brand and they are priced right
  • Wipers might need to be scraped off the windows if ice is bad.
  • The plastic pieces that attach to the metal wiper arm on the car would not stay in. Wipers were turning sideways after one use. I had to go out and buy another set, different brand that fit tighter.
Bosch ICON Beam Winter/Summer Wiper Blade
  • After doing some research on wiper blades, it was determined the beam type function better and really look much better than the "traditional" frame type wipers.
  • The spring of the frame-less blade is a little bit too heavy, causing it to hang up over the glass in the middle if the spring in your wiper arm is more than a couple of years old.
  • I've tried several brands and types of these single piece wiper blades. Too many of them chatter or lift up in wind, but these are the best. They work better than the best metal frame blades I've used and last through the year.
  • These haven't had to deal with any winter weather yet, but have performed great in wet weather and summer bug season.
  • After being disappointed by many other brands, these are holding up and are streak free even after a very wet tropical season here in S Florida.
