Peak Optix Wiper Blade (17')
This all-in-one, customer friendly solution covers hook and pin, traditional arm types. It covers most common OE-equipped flat blade arm types, including side lock, top lock 2 and top lock push. The new, sleek design offers improved performance. The flat blade is snapped into the package, and adapters snap into place inside of the packaging. There is no need for an additional part (sleeve/holder). It includes easy-to-follow installation instructions and is compliant with most severe environmental standards. A smaller blade specification allows for reduced wiper motor size, resulting in an increase to the life of the wiper motor. A lower profile avoids contact of wiper blade with the hood of vehicle.
Reduced width improves the wind lift performance, as well as winter season performance, by reducing ice and snow accumulation. The co-extruded rubber wiping element features synthetic rubber, natural rubber and protective coating. The synthetic rubber is used for the upper-body to provide heat resistance to the permanent set, superior wiping performance in extreme hot and cold temperatures and better resistance to tearing of the hinge (thinnest section of wiper element profile). Natural rubber is used for the wiping edge to provide best-in-class wipe quality and flexibility in cold conditions. Protective coating provides a smoother operation through chatter and squeak noise reduction during the life of the wiper blade.
