About the Product
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
