Bosch has expanded its wiper blade portfolio with a new hybrid beam blade, the InSight Wiper Blade. The enclosed hybrid construction of BoschInSight minimizes gaps to reduce snow and ice buildup. It is based on Bosch beam technology, utilizing a graphite-coated natural rubber wiping edge with patented internal tension spring, versus the conventional style claws of other hybrid blades. The tension spring is contoured to the windshield, providing consistent pressure along the entire length of the blade for improved and reliable wiping performance and a longer service life. An integrated spoiler makes for a consistently clear wipe even when the vehicle is being driven at a high speed. Lengths include 13- to 22-inch and 24-, 26- and 28-inch blades.
