The Average Windscreen Wiper Has Been Redesigned and It's Game-Changing
Despite massive technological advances in automobile design, there is one part of the car that hasn’t really changed, the windscreen wiper.
Despite being easily forgotten about, your car's windscreen wipers are the difference between a safe journey home or a disastrous one when traveling in wet weather conditions.
Kimblade has redesigned the windscreen wiper blade to give optimal performance and safety to your car.
Traditional wiper blades are shaped like inverted triangles, over time the triangle is pushed to one side increasing the friction of rubber on glass which leads to smearing and noise problems.
Rectangle shape applies perfect friction with every wipe
Kimblades are shaped like rectangles, so no matter the wear, the optimal contact with your windscreen is always maintained.
In addition to being made from 100% silicon and effectively wiping away water, the Kimblade applies a thin layer of water resistant spray with every wipe.
That means less water sits on the glass, so you can use a lower setting on your wipers, increasing your visibility and making your journey safer.
Unlike regular wiper blades, Kimblades are resistant to UV and ozone, which means they won’t experience the same wear and tear; making them last longer and be more effective.
Kimblades last longer and perform better
The 4-bar linkage structure of the blades means the right amount of downforce is always exerted onto the glass to ensure efficiency. Their rectangle shape means even when pressure is applied to the blade, there is less friction than a traditional triangle shape.
High friction blades create an awful noise that is indicative of poor performance. Kimblades don’t make any sound. If after some time with your Kimblades you are concerned about their performance, simply turn your wipers on with a clean, dry windshield and they will rejuvenate for optimal performance once again.
Kimblades fit almost every car and the silicon wiper blades are easily replaceable. They also come in a range of colors to suit your style and car.
Kimblades suitable for almost any vehicle
Kimblades are being launched on Kickstarter. For a limited time, you can purchase Kimblades for an introductory price. The blades come in a pack with an adapter to suit your vehicle, two wipers and two blades in black, plus an additional 2 blades in a color of your choice.
Driving in wet conditions is common for many people. Make your journey as safe as possible with wiper blades that are well designed and durable. Kimblades have been developed through a rigorous two-year prototype development.
The exciting new product has been field tested for over a year under the supervision of exceptional product engineering and automotive experts. Give yourself and your family the safest journey possible. Back the production of Kimblades by heading to Kickstarter now.
