Reflex Wiper Blades with WetTec
The Pros:Even pressure with no streaking. Hingeless to prevents ice and snow buildup. Aerodynamic design prevents wind-lift and chatter at high speeds.
The Cons:Fairly expensive for a windshield wiper - 2X OEM. WetTec dryed up too fast, as i'm a little slow at my age, but works ok. Design allows for streaking.
The Reflex Wiper Blades are a new type of windshield wiper. They feature a hingeless design, with a "flex" design, designed to ensure even pressure of the wiper against car windshield. The rationale behind this design, is that the even pressure reduces the likelihood of streaking, often attributed to uneven wiper pressure.
This is especially true in winter conditions, where snow and ice can build up on wiper hinges and prevent proper operation. There is an aerodynamic airfoil that reduces wind-lift at high speeds.
- Rain-X Latitude
- Bosch Icon
The flex-style wiper is becoming more common with models Rain-X and Bosch both making flex wiper.
The Reflex Wiper Blades with WetTec are the second generation Reflex wiper blade and include a single application of WetTec glass treatment solution and cloth. The WetTec solution is designed to improve the repelling of water, ice, and dirt.
The Reflex Wiper Blades (this model, and the original) are only available at Canadian Tire in Canada. Reflex blades are available in many sizes, with 3 different built-in connection options making this a fairly universal wiper that fit almost all vehicles. The retail price for the Reflex Blades with WetTec start at $20 per blade and go up from there depending on size.
