Easy fitting and looks mint
by Anonymous user on 12/02/2020

Keeps the face from looking like I live in Shreks swamp. Really good built quality. Has cushioned arms which grip to your fork legs. These then secure with some solid thick rubber rings so your forks don't get marked. Looks awesome when fitted.

Great mudguard
by Anonymous user on 08/02/2020

Fitted to my Levo (29er) fine but did need a bit of trimming to clear the brake line bracket on the Fox 34 Rhythm fork to get it to sit in line with the tyre, 5 minute job!

Great mudguard, easy to fit
by Anonymous user on 31/12/2019

I'm not sure what one of the other reviewers has done, but this fits my 29er front wheel without issue (yari fork), with a 2.5 tyre. It's a great mudguard and I don't get anything hitting my face when I ride now. The only downside I've marked it down for is that it doesn't protect your forks seals from mud, and also won't fit Manitou forks with their reverse arch design.

Not designed for 29ers!
by Anonymous user on 05/10/2019

I ordered this for my 2019 Cube stereo 120TM 29er running on Fox Rhythm 34 forks. Purchased having read excellent reviews in MBR etc. Sadly what the reviews, Crud website and Tredz amongst others dont inform you is that this mudguard in order to be fitted correctly on your forks DOES NOT work with 29" MTB Wheels. I have no doubt this is a superb mudguard but I just wanted to give prospective buyers a heads-up so you don't make the same mistake as I did. If you want the mudguard to fit straight at the front part it is touching the tyre as it needs to sit at a specific low level in order for the mudguard to not interfere with the front cable housing/bracket integral to the Fox forks. Raise it up to clear the tyre and hey presto it interferes with the bracket thus pushing the front of the mudguard way off to one side. This would fit perfectly with 650b's/27" wheels but not designed for 29ers sadly. Great service from tredz as always and easy return instructions.

Excellent mudguard
by Anonymous user on 29/08/2019

So quick and easy to fit. Looks good, well made and works, what every MTB needs. There are cheaper but are they as good quality or better? I’m going to get one for my B29 MTB as well.

Mudguard Guide

 

Mudguard Guide

Why use mudguards?

Mudguards help keep you warm and dry in the wetter months while also protecting your bike from mud, grit and spray.

This can dramatically cut down any maintenance needed to your bike through the winter. For commuters they are essential, road cyclists will enjoy the dry, comfortable feeling while not spraying any friends behind, and mountain bikers will cut down spray and mud to the face, eyes and back. Warm and dry cycling is simply more enjoyable, meaning you can ride longer and more often through the winter.


What type of mudguards will fit my bike?

For commuters, road riders and general cyclists the first thing to look for are eyelets or attachment points on your frame and fork. There are often different widths of mudguard with all types to suit your tyre. There are many combinations of wheel size and tyre width available, check your bike for these sizes and choose the appropriate option.

“Ass Savers” and “Enduro Guards”

When you need a quick solution these light and unobtrusive mudguards make a great choice. The “Ass Saver” style clips into your saddle rails and only take seconds to take on and off, they help stop a soggy bottom on an unexpected rainy day or when the road surface is still wet. The “Enduro Guard” style is intended for mountain bikes and is often left on year-round, while you do need a couple of zip ties to fit, they are fit-and-forget and help keep spray and mud away from your face.

Full-length mudguards

If your bike does have eyelets then full-length mudguards can be used, these offer the best protection for bike and rider from the elements. They do take a little longer to fit as they are so robust. Some longer types have additional mud flaps and reflectors built in.

To find the right size, simply select the option that suits your wheel size and tyre width.

Clip on mudguards

Road and hybrid bikes with no eyelets for mudguards will use a clip-on type. These simply strap around the fork leg and rear stay to offer a very good amount of protection depending on the length of the mudguard.

Mountain bike mudguards

Mountain bikers can keep riding through the worst of the winter weather with fork arch mounted mudguards and rear mudguards mounted to either the chainstays or seatpost. With sizes working well with 29ers and rear chainstay mounted guards pose no issue with dropper seat posts.

They might not be the most glamorous of accessories but staying dry will keep you warm, meaning you can stay out longer and ride more often. Being able to keep riding through the winter will keep skill and fitness on point for when the trails and weather start to dry.

Summary

Mountain bike with a downtube guard

Mudguards are essential to keep riding through the winter, with many different types there is a wet weather solution to almost every bike. Road cyclists will be able to keep training through the worst of weather and riding friends appreciate not riding through the spray normally thrown up by the rider ahead.

Your bike will thank you and your winter clothing will last longer. Commuters will find mudguards essential, and mountain bikers will find it easier to keep warm and dry through the most extreme conditions.
