Contoured Shape with Flexible Frame

The Michelin Stealth Ultra hybrid-style wiper blade for your vehicle guarantees excellent results when it comes to keeping your windshield clean. It combines the contoured, aerodynamic shape of a beam-style wiper with the flexibility and multiple pressure points of a frame-style wiper to produce a blade that won't miss spots or cause streaking.


SmartFlex Suspension System Provides Consistent Results

Exploded view of Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper

The Stealth uses patented SmartFlex frame arms and hinges for superior windshield-cleaning results. The 2 secondary arms flex to allow the blade to conform to the shape of your windshield better than standard frames can. The secondary arms also provide strong lateral support to the wiper. The SmartFlex hinges are designed to work together with the secondary arms, enhancing their ability to hold down the ends of the blade. The secondary arms transfer downward pressure to 4 tertiary arms, resulting in a total of 8 pressure points along the blade for even windshield contact. The SmartFlex system ensures that the blade applies pressure along its entire length, no matter the shape of your windshield or the pressure exerted by your wiper's arms


Aerodynamic, Hinged Hard Cover

Cover portion of Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper

The Stealth Ultra has a hard cover that prevents the wiper blade from accumulating sleet, snow, and leaves. By resisting buildup - and adding to the overall strength of the blade - the hard cover ensures that the wiper can weather the tough challenges of Mother Nature and consistently keep your windshield clear.


The hard cover's hinges work independently of the hinges in the wiper frame, which allows the blade to flex so that it conforms perfectly to the shape of your windshield. Because the wiper makes consistent contact with your windshield along the length of the blade, it can completely remove sleet, rain, and snow with no missed spots.


The cover has an aerodynamic shape to resist the effects of wind. This ensures that the blade resists being lifted by the wind and maintains even pressure on your windshield at all times.


Graphite-Coated Rubber Squeegee for Superior Performance

Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper squeegee

The natural rubber squeegee is made with proprietary processing techniques to ensure that it outperforms the competition. And the squeegee has a graphite coating to make sure the wiper glides smoothly across your windshield. This graphite coating helps to eliminate skipping, which can leave behind a washboard pattern of water. It also helps keep your wiper quiet so you won't be annoyed by squealing or chattering sounds.


Fast Installation with EZ LOK Connectors

Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper connector

To install the blade, rotate the connector piece on the blade to fit the type of connector that's on your car. (Some wiper arm styles require that you replace the standard connector on the blade with one of the included alternate connectors.) Then clip the wiper blade onto the car's connector. The wiper blade will click into place so that you know it's securely installed.


The Stealth Ultra can be easily installed on most types of wiper arms, including those with the following connector styles:

Video Transcript for Michelin Stealth Ultra Windshield Wiper Blade Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper blade, available in a size to fit your vehicle right here at etrailer dot com. As you can see with my old wiper blades, it's a streaky, messy wipe. Check out our new Michelin Stealth Ultra wiper blades. Nice. This hybrid-style blade provides flexibility with a hard cover. The Smart Flex suspension insures that 8 pressure points provide consistent contact with your windshield. The hard plastic cover is durable and helps prevent snow and ice from building up on the blade. The hard cover is hinges so it will not interfere with the suspension.

It features a natural rubber, graphite-coated squeegee that provides a clean, quiet, streak-free wipe. The aerodynamic shape prevents the wiper blade from being lifted by the wind and the black powder coat finish helps resist rust and corrosion. Wiper blade sizes may vary from driver side to passenger side, so you want to be sure to check with your owner's manual or etrailer dot com's fit guide to see what size you need. Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. It's going to come with everything you need to connect it to your top lock, side lock, side pin, regular pin and J-style wiper blade arms. The vehicle we'll be working with today uses the J-style adapter.

All of the adapters clip onto the rod about the same way. We'll clip it on like so. Now we can head over to our vehicle. We're here on the driver's side. Let's go ahead and lift up our arm. Then we can open up our blade like so.

This is going to reveal a little button we can push to release it from the adapter. We're just going to push in underneath, and now I'm going to push the arm towards the blade, like that. Once we've got it slid off the adapter, we can remove the whole blade. It's very simple. When changing your wiper blades, it's not a bad idea to put some padding down on your windshield just in case the arm swings back and hits it. That way, it doesn't crack the windshield.

We can grab our new Michelin wiper blades. I'm going to angle the adapter up like so. I'll bring the arm through and then I'm going to clip it on the adapter and pull out until it snaps into place, like that. As you can see, it's locked in, it's not coming out. We can go ahead and lower it down and repeat the same process for the passenger side. That's going to complete our look at the Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper blade.

I haven't used these wipers in the rain yet, but they fit well and are of good quality. The help I received at etrailer was excellent . They answered my questions and helped me with my order, the shipping was quick and the wipers were packaged well. I would defiantly recommend etrailer and will be using them again.

I purchased two windshield wiper blades for my Chevy Equinox from etrailer because they had the best price and the items would be shipped quickly. I'm a Prime member of that large online retail site and their in stock blades wouldn't ship for 2 weeks+. I received my blades in a very reasonable time and my car is happy. Thank you.

The wiper blades seem great. They were easy to install. It hasn't rained or snowed yet. But they work fine with the windshield washer. I was surprised that they took a week before shipping, but UPS delivered on time, and my old wiper blades were still operational!

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


The product is good, but the installation illustrations are poor, if you're a novice. Wiper blades have many different mounting configurations. Personally, I found mounting and unmounting procedures can greatly clarified by referring to your owner's manual, and or surfing the web for wiper videos of your model automobile and wiper model.


Comments
I have also linked an installation video of these wiper blades on a 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, which will be similar to your 2015 Equinox.

The ordering process was pain free. When the product arrived there was an issue but the company resolved the issue that night and a replacement was shipped the next day, great customer service. Recommend using etrailer, thank you. The selected wiper blades work well.

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


Purchased Michelin windshield wipers for my Chevy Silverado pick up truck. Installation overall was pretty straightforward. I received the windshield wipers very quickly. I checked on the Internet for reviews on this particular windshield wiper and received great reviews. The price of the windshield wipers was less money than what I could find on other online retailers.

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


Well the one the chart said the blades would fit, they DIDNOT. I made that dreaded call. To my delight Anna answered the call. First we talked and took care of the return of the wiper blades that were wrong. Ordered the ones I chose to fit, they did, and got a return label for the first ones. Anna did a great job of representing ETRAILER CORP. She checked with too make sure things were wright on the order. Thank you one and all that work there.
