The ICON wipers are the some of the best, affordable wipers on the market. They beat the Trico version with ease and are much better than the off brand equivalents. Not quite as good as a pair of PIAA curved blades I once had, but the Bosch cost half as much and the PIAA's required regular maintenance on the blades and windshield to keep them performing. The Bosch work very well in Winter, better than many Winter specific blades. I came back to the ICONs because nothing else on the market compares right now.

"The design of Bosch ICON™ distributes uniform pressure along the entire length of the blade..."

No, they don't. Not even close. At least not on my 97 Cherokee.

I installed a pair of these, wanting a smooth, low profile blade that would work well year 'round, that didn't catch a lot of wind at highway speeds, and that wouldn't cake up with new england ice and snow.

Unlike most blades, they come as a right and a left. But they appear to be identical except for part number and packaging. I can't tell them apart. Aside from this, installation is easy. No problems there. But no matter which way they're installed, they don't work. I tried switching them left to right. No matter what you do, they won't flatten out onto the windshield, leaving big, wide gaps in coverage. They're unacceptable, requiring replacement.

        Comments about Bosch ICON Wiper Blade:

        I purchased this item to replace a pair of identical Bosch beam wiper blades that were about a year old. I liked the old ones, but after one year, they leave streaks on the windows. I purchased the same ones to replace the old ones because I liked them so much. When I opened up the package, I discovered that Bosch changed the attachment to the wiper arm from a very nice fitting metal attachment piece to a cheap plastic piece that does not give that secure fit feeling that the old metal attachments did. Bosch is still charging the same MSRP, but using cheaper equipment. I just installed them today, so I will have to wait and see how long these last compared to the old ones.

          I bought this set of wipers to use on a 97 C1500 Silverado. The blades keep the windshield clear and streak-free, but are NOISY, except in heavy rain. Going to remove this set of wipers and install on a Tacoma work truck. I'll get a different set for the Silverado. Disappointed that these wipers are so noisy. If you don't mind noise,you'll love these. Otherwise, find something else.

              This wiper works incredibley great. I have been using it on my vehicles for the last few years and I copuld not be more impressed. These work better than the cheap ones I always had bought inm the past and they last much longer. They may be pricy, but you get more than your moneys worth out of these.

                  A:

                  I'm glad to assist, Gman! Bosch ICON blades use exclusive tension spring arcing technology to create a fit that is custom-contoured to the curvature of each side of the windshield. The correct blade for a particular vehicle is based on a combination of the blade length and the curvature of the windshield. Driver side always has an "A" part number. Passenger side can have an "A" or "B" part number depending on the vehicle. Blades with a "B" part number have a greater curvature specifically designed to wrap around the passenger side window for greater visibility and clarity. Bosch continues its innovation and leadership with the ICON OE Multi-Clip connector, which offers a like-for-like OE replacement. The Multi-Clip features a flexible connector system, simplifying the installation process for all types of vehicles.

                  Just one blade. Modern, quality wiper blades are only ever sold as a single unit. Only cheap blades or some blade refills come as pairs anymore.
