  • Product description

    SKS chromoplastic full length mudguards are a staple for commuters and urban cyclists thanks to their durability, versatility and impressive value. You’ll not find such a quality mudguard set in this price range.

    A chromoplastic sandwich (aluminium strips inside a plastic housing) gives these mudguards a deep profile with added strength and stiffness. This construction with stainless steel fittings and seat stays ensure a long lifespan for this mudguard set, ideal for the daily commute.

    The SKS Chromoplastic mudguards are easy to fit on a classic hybrid or road bike. They’re also stylish and have been tried and tested over the years – so you know they’re good quality.

    Key Features

    • The best full length mudguard money can buy
    • Beautifully crafted from the highest grades of plastics and aluminium, using a patented and well proven sandwich construction, SKS Chromoplastic mudguards have led the way for decades; there really is no finer mudguard available
    • Stainless steel fittings and tough 3.4 mm stainless steel stays ensure that these guards will last a lifetime
    • With stainless steel fixed bridges and draw-bolts, fitting and adjustment couldn’t be simpler
    • Front Secu-Clip ensures a sturdy and secure mounting, whilst the emergency detachment feature offers plenty of reassurance
    • Secu-Clips are also recommended for those using sliding drop-out single speed bikes, as they aid rear wheel removal, and are available as spares
    • With a wide range of profiles, 2 diameters and 2 colours to choose from, and a great selection of spares and accessories, the SKS Chromoplastic comes with plenty of options for those looking for maximum protection on almost any bike with mudguard clearance
    • Includes stainless steel assembly kit and rubber stay caps
    • Size: 700X35mm, 700X45mm, 700x50mm, 26x55mm, 26x65mm
    • Colour: Silver, Black

    Had before, happy so bought some more

    Have SKS on my older bike. Still intact (except for front flap) even after being knocked off the other week (wheel buckled - mudguard ok). Received in good fettle. Easy to fit -had to cut stays to length to get black protective clips on and to leave clearance for rear rack

    Would not recommend

    I would not recommend these mudguards to anyone. At the first step of fitting these mudguards we knew we had made a mistake. The instructions were embarrassingly terrible. Awkward and uninformative pictogram images (not a single photo) and vague references to components led to immediate frustration. What is quite an involved fitting process is summed up in a small paragraph on a page the size of a coaster. We purchased these to fit on a set of 700x25c wheels, as the website said they would fit onto, but found that the struts to bolt on to the bike to support the mudguards were too long. Happily the instructions had us covered: 'adjust for length with hacksaw.' The supplied components for securing the struts onto the bike frame proved inadequate. They were tightened on as 'instructed', half a day of cycling on the road had them pinging off and leaving the front mudguard to swing free, tripping under the front wheel and risking serious injury to the cyclist. On the plus side, the packaging was good and suitable and Tredz delivered them promptly.

    SKS areThe the best

    These are definitely my 'go to' mudguards of choice and have just bought a new set for a touring bike build. First things first, the instructions are rubbish but there isn't really much to installing these. I have read so many reviews from people complaining about how they 'had to cut down the seat stays', but er, that's the whole idea people! How do you think that SKS can satisfy the infinite variables of frame designs and wheel/tyre sizes?! These require patience and a good pair of bolt cutters to cut the stays. If you have a threaded mudguard boss on the underside of your seatstay bridge, don't bother with the sliding bridge, but drill a hole direct into the guard and bolt it straight into the boss. Sure it invalidates the warranty but you won't need it and it makes for a much stronger and neater install. There's a very good video on YouTube from Rivendell that shows how to install these. I recommend watching it first!

    SKS Chromoplastic Mudguards

    Very good service from Tredz. The mudguards take a little while to fit to get them just right but you should expect that when you consider that they have to fit a wide variety of bike designs. Once done, they fit well and look good, with neatly designed fixings and fittings to finish them off. The stays and some of the fixings are stainless steel but some appear to be plated steel - I think they were advertised as stainless steel. I'd certainly recommend this product.

    SKS chromoplastic mudguards

    Still waiting on Tredz to send me the missing stays so I can fit these great looking mudguards. Phoned twice and been promised they're in the post but a week later still waiting. Great mudguards, less than great service from Tredz.

    Good quality mudguards

    I fitted SKS Chromoplastic mudguards before and despite being fiddly they look good and are solid. The muguards are clearly good quality. However, this time struggled to get front mudguard to sit properly and it rises as it comes out between front forks and has a slight twist. Took it off to figure out why and it appears that bracket holding it to back of front fork is not quite central. That said, its not too bad. Something to check for perhaps before fitting?

    Reliable product

    Have fitted these SKS guards to all my bikes and very satisfied with design of product. Front mudflap is well designed too. Only drawback is that most of the fixing nuts & bolts supplied are only zinc plated steel and soon look rusty. But it's easy enough to obtain replacement stainless bolts elsewhere to upgrade.

    Clean look, solid fit, work well. A couple of fitting niggles.

    After years of having a soggy bottom and gritty drivechain these have greatly improved the daily commute. Fitting instructions are brief but adequate. Any kit comprising a dozen bolts and two 'coathangers' is going to be a bit fiddly to construct but no more cursing than for aligning derailleurs of building a flatpack, which is what it is. Once fitted fine adjustment is easy and they are very solid. A couple of observations: A couple of spacers (5mm) to hold the secuclips off the front fork would be useful, but might just be the UltraX forks. The front fork bracket needed some pliers work to get a fit, again might just be the forks. A longer front fork bolt would be good (extra 10-15mm). I had to acquire one. Not enough to stop these getting 5 stars form me. They have paid for themselves with the additional days the car remains parked at home.

    Stylish mudguards (if such exist)

    Fiddly to fit and set up correctly but well made and the look about as sexy as mud guards can be! I've seen the light and installed on my new bike to avoid being soaked or soaking anyone else. Highly recommended.

    Best mudguards I've used

    I originally bought some SKS commuter guards but they always rattled, the front one got really bad and the rear broke so I bought these. I spent a couple of hours getting them perfect and I did use the brake mount from the old guards, but these are the best mudguards I've used, the 35mm is pushing the limit for 28 tyres but are great for 25 or less. My frame wasn't supposed to take 28 tyres and guards but they just fit. No rattles at all
