Today I found a review on another car blog, so I’ve updated my page about the Rain-X blades.
Rain-X just put their new Rain-X Repel wiper blade on the market.
Judging from the zoomable images on Amazon it looks exactly like the Rain-X Latitude blades, but with a new feature added.
In effect it’s just like the PIAA Silicone coated blades that adds a tiny layer of Silicone to your windshield with each wipe.
This blade is so new that there is only 1 review on Amazon, but if you like the Latitude blades then this blade might be a worthy successor.
There’s a demo video on Amazon showing the effect of the Rain-X Repel blade that you might want to have a look at.
The video shows an untreated windshield, then a windshield with mounted Rain-X Repel blades in the rain, then the video shows how to apply an activation wipe and how to install the blade – and finally there’s a mud demonstration with an untreated windshield followed by a Rain-X Repel‘ified windshield.
