Bosch ICON beam wiper blades are helping the Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers” see clearly when the team tackles tornados. When the group of scientists and filmmakers hunts down, films and studies tornadoes, it is in the Storm Chaser’s “Dominator” armored SUV equipped with ICON beam wiper blades.
The Dominator utilizes three pairs of strong ICON bracketless beam blades to provide wiping efficiency and durability. ICON beam wiper blades feature dual precision-tensioned internal steel springs and no external joints or brackets. ICON’s exclusive tension spring arcing technology provides custom curved left and right side windshield blades that are contoured to the variable curvature of the driver’s side and the passenger’s side of the windshield.
The benefit of the left and right blade configuration is improved vision, safety and overall wiping performance. ICON’s patented blade design features an exclusive asymmetric wind spoiler to create increased downforce, and distribute uniform pressure along the entire length of the blade for strong all-weather performance. The ICON blades’ exclusive fx dual rubber compound wipes cleaner and lasts up to 40 percent longer than other premium wiper blades, says Bosch.
“The same Bosch ICON blades used on the Storm Chasers Dominator SUV are available to help motorists in late model cars, light trucks and SUVs drive safely in any weather,” says Makoto Takatsuka, product manager, wiper blades for Bosch.
A dedicated micro site, www.BoschClearTheWay.com, is available to inform motorists about Storm Chasers and ICON beam wiper blades. It features Storm Chaser video web shorts, product information, and special offers on ICON wiper blades.
