Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades offer great visibility in rain, sleet and snow. Use on either originally-installed standard or curved-style Windshield Wiper Blades. The Rain-X Latitude® blade is sold with a preinstalled small j-hook adapter and contains multi-adapter for side pin, large j-hook and bayonet windshield wiper blade arms.

Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades feature a contoured design that applies even pressure along the entire windshield wiper blade length. The windshield wiper blade is made of specially blended graphite coated rubber that delivers a smooth, clean, chatter-free wipe with each pass of the wiper blade. WIth a built-in aerodynamic spoiler, drag, noise, and wind lift are significantly reduced.

The ice resistant frame helps to prevent snow and ice build-up by eliminating exposed metal components. The rubber-encased substructure helps to increase wiper flexibility and adherence to the windshield in harsh conditions.

  • Easy Installation
  • High-Performance Wipe

    Comments about Rain X Latitude All-Season Beam Wiper Blade, 24":

    I have been using Rain-X Latitude wipers for at least 10 years and really like them. There is no wind noise from them and the aerodynamic "spoiler" design causes the wiper to clean the water from the windshield exceptionally well. These wipers combined with Rain-x water repellent for the glass makes for an excellent combination during all types of rain. From the hardest downpour to a light drizzle, my ability to see the road is never compromised. I would, and do, recommend both products often.

        I only buy Rain X windshield wiper blades for all of our vehicles. My oldest daughter is 23 years old and she no longer lives at home, but I still make sure to buy Rain X wiper blades for her car whenever I purchase replacement wiper blades for my own vehicles. I gave a set to my father-in-law last year as a gift for Father's Day and he loved them so much that he will only buy Rain X wiper blades. The quality and performance of these wiper blades make them well worth the slightly higher purchase price of most other brands.

        Installed these blades last fall and I was impressed at first. Over the winter they did not hold up. They now streak. The OEM blades lasted for 5 years. I'll be replacing these this spring. 7 months use for pricey aftermarket blades. Perhaps I'll check out OEM's.

          Good blades, but this "universal mount" stuff just doesn't work. I have a 2013 Chevy Equinox. the adapter that comes with the blades do not fit.

                  I bought a set of these for my car and my wife's car. Both sets streaked right from the start. I returned them for another pair, and within a week the new set also started streaking. The blades on my wife's car tore within 8 months and had to be replaced. Rain-X makes great windshield washer solvents, but not very good wipers.

                  Hard to install. Even solicited help from employees of Advance Auto Parts and they had trouble. Worked fine at first. After 3 months they leave water lines and started to squeak on return. Passenger side blade would fall off arm when raised to wash car. Save yourself time and money and purchase another brand.

                        How can I find what the length is for the blades other than measuring them? I would measure them but I don't have access to the car at the moment.

                          It's very easy to measure your blades so that you know what lenght you need for your vehicle left and right. Even easier, ask the store personnel to look up what sizes you need, they will even be glad to change them if you ask them too.
