“The new wiper blades are available just in time for winter weather,” said Will Young, R & D, engineering and quality at Pylon Manufacturing. “Each of these wiper blades has been designed and engineered for enhanced performance in rain, snow and ice, allowing drivers to see clearly while keeping passengers safe.”
MICHELIN® Optimum XT™ wiper blades are equipped with a curved frameless beam design to provide even wipe pressure for smooth, quiet wipes and improved visibility. The built-in aerodynamic spoiler grips the windshield under the toughest conditions, and infinite pressure points provide better windshield control and improved visibility. The advanced Dura-Glide™ rubber coating is tested to 1,500,000 wipes for durability and extended blade life.
MICHELIN® Stealth XT™ hybrid wiper blades feature an exclusive Smart-Flex™ design that adjusts wiper blade contact pressure across the curvature of the windshield to deliver outstanding windshield wiping performance. Engineered for durable wiping in extreme weather conditions, the wiper frame and suspension system are covered to protect the blades from clogging with ice and snow. The new MICHELIN® Stealth XT™ wiper blade is durability tested to 1,000,000 wipes.
MICHELIN® High Performance™ conventional wiper blades provide a heavy duty coated multi-contact steel frame with riveted construction. Its aerovented design provides added strength and durability to the wiper blade. Compression-molded rubber provides smooth, quiet wipes. Durability tested to 750,000 wipes, the High Performance wiper blade is a great value providing all season performance.
The MICHELIN® Optimum XT, MICHELIN® Stealth XT and MICHELIN® High Performance feature the Michelin EZ-LOKTM Connector System or hassle-free installation.
