The Topeak Defender XCL-R rear mudguard is a compact and lightweight rear fender which is easy to fit and easy to remove. There are multiple pivots which articulate the fender for improved tyre coverage so you can get the perfect bike fit. The rigid high impact plastic has been co-moulded to a softer more flexible material at the trailing edge to increase durability.
What are mudguards?
Mudguards are the ideal accessory for keeping you and your bike that little bit cleaner. The sit on top of your wheels and direct spray and mud back down towards the road, path or trail.
Who needs mudguards?
Mudguards are great for commuting, as they’ll minimise the amount of cleaning required between trips to work. If you take part in group rides with friends or as part of a cycling club, fenders are common courtesy so you don’t spray the rider behind you! They are also great for mountain biking, although you do tend to get pretty dirty with or without them.
What are the choices?
You’ll need to check which mudguards are compatible with your bike. Some bikes have mudguard eyelets which you can simply attach them straight on to, or there are clip on mudguards which are less of a permanent feature. Full length mudguards cover most of your wheel and aerodyanmic mudguards are perfect for weight conscious roadies.
What should I buy with them?
As they are keeping you clean, mudguards will get quite dirty, so treat them to some bike cleaner and lovingly shift the dirt off with a cleaning brush.
Some people aren’t keen on the appearance of mudguards, but with sleek designs to choose from these days, there’s no reason why you can’t be clean and stylish.
