When you subject your vehicle to dirty offroad conditions, your wiper blades have to work extra hard and be extra tough. SilBlade wipers exceed all Society of Automotive Engineers and Japanese Industrial Standards for wipe quality, durability, and ozone and chemical resistance.

SilBlade Silicone Wiper Blades

SilBlade wipers are formulated with a premium General Electric silicone elastomer that offers extreme high strength and resilience and are much more durable than rubber wipers. SilBlade wipers are guaranteed for a full five years against degradation. Conventional rubber wipers wear out in six months to one year.

Just as Land Rovers are all-weather vehicles, your wiper blades should also be all-weather wipers. SilBlade wipers are extremely resistant to heat. SilBlade's patented formulation and manufacturing process prevents degradation from prolonged exposure to sunlight, ozone, washer fluid, and road residue. SilBlade remains flexible and maintains a superior wipe in extreme temperatures from -80°F to 400°F. Silicone is naturally unaffected by ozone, ultraviolet light, acid rain, age, and even temperatures to 400°F. This is the reason silicone caulking is used for exterior windows and doors on your home.

Silicone is also unaffected by extreme cold to -80°F. Silicone is a natural water & ice repellent, which reduces snow and ice buildup on your vehicle's windows. This is the reason why most aerospace rubber products are made from silicone rather than rubber. If you want even more winter protection, you can fit the Winter SilBlades in place of the standard SilBlades. SilBlade wipers also outperform rubber wipers in the following ways:

So SilBlade wipers will outperform your rubber wipers. What does this mean to you as an offroader?

SilBlade Silicone Wiper Blades

SilBlade wipers are specially formulated to deposit a "molecular matrix" that causes water to bead up on contact with the windshield. The result is an improved view of the road ahead and other trail conditions. In addition, the same features that cause the water to bead up also help keep ice and snow from adhering to the glass. The beading effect will last for a lifetime of the SilBlade wipers.

SilBlade wipers give a very clean wipe long after standard rubber wipers are deteriorated to the point that they no longer work effectively.

After your trail runs you will be able to see the road and other vehicles better because of your cleaner windshield.

On the trails you will be able to see the trail better. Dust and mud will be swept off your windshield better with SilBlade wipers than with rubber wipers.

The difference between silicone and rubber will be even more dramatic at night. A dirty windshield at night increases the glare on your windshield and prevents you from seeing the trail conditions. Note that Ho's rubber wipers have left a dirty streak across the viewing area of his windshield. After being exposed to the hot sun, smoggy air, and acid rain of Los Angeles, Ho's rubber wipers were not working effectively. Ho was not happy.

Road driving during the rain can be very dangerous. Visibility, and thus reaction time, is reduced considerably. When it's raining the SilBlade wipers will both remove the water on your windshield better than rubber wipers and also will prevent the water from staying on your windshield in the first place. Less eye fatigue and greater overall safety are the result. Photo by Eric Delphin.

Rain can be very dangerous on the trail as well. Though trail speeds are usually low, rain can make the trail slippery and dangerous. To avoid slippery areas, one has to see them first, and to see them one needs the best wipers can be obtain.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Screen Wash

For actually cleaning the windshield of debris and stains, our favorite windshield washer fluid is the Land Rover Genuine Parts Screen Wash. Though pungent, this alcohol-based formula cleans road grime and dead bugs and de-ices windshields very well. The solution is very strong and is normally diluted in a 10:1 ratio with water in the summer months and a 4:1 ratio in winter conditions. Use the Genuine Parts Screen Wash to clean off whatever debris inevitably forms on your windshield.
