Trico has received a 4-star rating in the Auto Express Best Wiper Blades: 2018 group test, for its Exact Fit and Flex ranges – securing two of the top five spots.
Auto Express tested eleven blades, looking for a clean wipe. Noise was measured, while testing in the dry, ease of fitment and price were also taken into account.
Auto Express reported: “Trico’s Exact Fit is one of the easiest wiper blades to install. It simply clicks into place with minimal effort and comes with just a single adaptor. The jointless structure meant the flat blade performed well during our tests. It cleared most of the water with ease, leaving very few spots and marks on the screen.
Trico Flex made an impressive debut in the Auto Express product test and also received 4 stars with the Auto Express testers reporting that “we soon had the blades on the car” and that “overall performance was good”.
Trico Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson said: “We are delighted to have two of Trico’s blade ranges in the top five of the recent Auto Express Wiper Blade test.
“General advice from Trico is that blades should be visually checked on a monthly basis and replaced every six to twelve months. The best time to replace wipers is the spring and again in the autumn, replacing the blades in the spring is recommended as they have worked hard in the winter fighting sub-zero conditions, then the summer heat also dries them up causing cracks hence the need to replace in the autumn.”
