To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These were very easy to install but were a bit fiddly to get right so they didn't sit up against the tyre. The front one however either sits along the crossbar and brake cables or sits up against the wheel, can be seen in the photo. Not a big problem but not ideal as you can always feel it when you turn the handlebars. Out on the road they do bounce around a bit and catch on the tyre which does get a bit annoying pretty quickly but I was cycling for about 15-20 mins before the back one could have got me killed. I was riding along fine then all of a sudden it was like the bike wanted to stop dead. I must've gone from about 20 mph to 5 mph in the space of a few metres. Completely baffled as to why i straight away thought a flat tyre but both my tyres looked fine. Getting off the bike i noticed the back mud guard had been sucked into the gap between the tyre and the brakes. This completely knackered and back mudguard and i have had to cut it down so that it doesn't look broken. Thank god i wasn't riding in the rain when this happened...
I commute 24 miles/day on a fairly high spec carbon road bike. It's a joy in the summer but not so much of a joy in the autumn/winter. These mudguards are a game changer and without them I would probably have switched to the bus weeks ago. While not cheap, they were the same price as a weekly bus pass and have already paid for themselves many times over. A little fiddly to fit, but not overly so, they don't completely ruin the lines of my bike, don't rattle or shake and do an excellent job of keeping surface water and road debris off me and my drive system. Recommended.
Compared to full metal mudguards, I found these to be fairly flimsy, although take that word with a grain of salt since in my experience that is of great benefit. Installation was easy, and after a few particularly nasty potholes the mudguards tend to misalign. Since they're rubberised at their connection points, you can just slide it over while cycling and you're done, compared to a metal mudguard where traditionally you'd have to bash out the wrench and calibrate it at the connection point.
So far they've done the job, and I am very impressed with them.
After 2 riders 2 of the nuts & bolts for the front mudguards fell off mid-ride rendering it useless. I've spent probably close to an hour, if not more, fettling and tweaking the rear so that it secure to my seatstays and doesnt catch on the spinning rear wheel causing excess drag and excessive noise. The guard itself is hardly sturdy as the smallest of compression in the roads surface and the guard rattles and shakes. I does stop any moisture spraying up onto the back of your jersey, thats the only good thing I can probably say about this 'set'
Once I had realised the length of the supports could be adjusted fitting was fine. I hadn't realised that they didn't cover the brakes which is a bit disappointing. In front of the brakes both wheels are not covered so putting them on doesn't mean you not going to have to keep washing it in the winter. Overall they are good & well made & would recommend
They look great, have not fitted them yet. Updated- have fitted them now, they look sleek and accentuate the look of my new bike. They work perfectly. I had mine fitted by shop only because I’m not confident in my own ability, but looking st them attached, confident could have made as good a job. They do stay in position well and do not get any mucky road residue on me when out. All in all it’s a thumbs up, ten out of ten review from me
Easy enough to install, given what they are, and have had no problems with them. Occasionally need slight adjustment after being in a busy bike shed at work, or accidentally knocking them myself, but they are easy to do and much sturdier than the previous guards I had that had struts barely clipping in to the guard itself.
Easy enough to install but a little finicky to adjust, keep me dryer. Far more robust than crud raceblade Mk2 which I had previously. still do require a little adjustment maybe once a week from knocks they take in bike racks, but this can be done by hand. great product which I would have no hesitation in recommending if you cannot install full mudguards.
