With the Bosch 4824 Evolution All-Season Bracketless Wiper Blade, 24″ (Pack of 1), no longer will you have problems squinting out of a dirty windshield no matter what the weather may be.
True to its name, the Bosch 4824 Evolution All-Season Bracketless Wiper Blade, 24″ is a wiper blade which can be used during all seasons. It is not common that you find blades that are fit for the heavy snowfall of winter or the harsh sea air of summer. These wiper blades however, can take everything on – may it be rain, snow or high winds.
The Bosch 4824 Evolution All-Season Bracketless Wiper Blade is a wiper blade that does just what its name says. It provides a driver with a clean and clear windshield no matter what the weather outside the car is like.
Bracketless wiper blades, also known as beam blades, are designed without the metal or plastic brackets, joints or hinges of conventional wiper blades. So snow and ice have nowhere to build up. In addition, the patented design of Bosch Evolution features dual precision-tensioned steel springs that distribute more uniform pressure along the entire length of the blade for exceptional all-weather visibility.

Rain-X and Bosch are both marketing bracketless wiper blades now. The idea is that they look good when replacing OEM items on a lot of new cars, they wipe well because there are no pressure points created by a traditional 'spider' frame, and they're ice-resistant because there are no pivots or springs to ice up. Finally, both the Rain-X and Bosch blades come pre-curved on the principle that no windscreen is flat, and they have aerofoils to keep them pressed against the screen. That's the theory anyway. In practice it's a little different. I tried the Rain-X and Bosch items and they both suffer the same problem - the one thing they claim to eliminate. Neither manufacturer's blade is actually able to keep itself pressed against the windscreen across the whole length of the blade. This means that you get an uneven wipe. The following bullet point graphic is from Rain-X's website:
Today, Bosch operates the world's largest windshield wiper factory in Tienen, Belgium. This facility produces 350,000 windshield wipers every day, and manufactures 700 different types of blades. In 1999, Bosch introduced the Aerotwin “bracketless” blade for OE applications. Today, Bosch is the largest OE manufacturer of bracketless wiper blades with over 33 million blades placed into service.
What's The Buzz Behind 'Bracketless' Wiper Blades?
Overall, the Bosch 4824 Evolution All-Season Bracketless Wiper Blade is a practical buy for anybody looking for a good pair of windshield wipers. If your car comes with a specifically curved windshield however, then maybe even curvier wiper blades is what you should be looking for.
