Whether your off-road vehicle of choice is a Jeep Wrangler, a Ford Bronco or anything in between, you are likely familiar with BFGoodrich. For 150 years the tire company has been cranking out some of the nicest rubber on the market, particularly for use out on the trails. The BFGoodrich T/A KO2 is one of the most popular off-road tires on the market, and is immediately recognizable by its distinctive tread pattern. Now though, BFGoodrich is looking to expand past the tire market with a little help from the folks at Pylon Manufacturing. Meet the all-new BFGoodrich off-road wiper blades.
Constructed with the challenges of off-road trails in mind, these new BFGoodrich off-road wiper blades are perfect for any 4×4 SUV or pickup you might have in your garage. Be it mud, rain, snow or grime, these wipers will keep the road ahead in focus on your daily commute or on the toughest trails. The wipers even feature the BFGoodrich T/A KO2’s tread pattern, just to drive home their off-roading intentions. A little gimmicky sure, but it does look pretty cool. Furthermore, the design actually helps to stop ice from preventing the wipers from doing their thing in freezing temperatures. Other touches include the Pylon’s SCRUB-X technology, as well as a more durable rubber blade section.
“Pylon’s 50-year legacy of engineering innovation was key in achieving success when we set out to create a wiper that excels in off-road and all-weather conditions”, said Mike Fretwell, Pylon CMO. “We’ve set a new benchmark in the industry and are excited to launch the BFGoodrich Off-Road Wiper Blades.”
While it may seem silly for BFGoodrich to get into the wiper game at this point, off-roading is a huge cash cow for the industry as of late. The company themselves even noted that off-road fans provide them with a multi-billion market to play within, and that these wipers will drive innovation in the space. We aren’t sure about these things driving the segment, but the point stands. Off-roading has grown to a point that can’t simply be ignored anymore. So if you have a Jeep Wrangler, a Ford Bronco, or any other off-road vehicle, you can check these things out at the link provided here.
