Product Description

The SKS Longboard Mudguards are based off the very popular Chromoplastics guards, but are longer with bigger spoilers on the bottom tip for extra coverage.  

The Longboard mudguards won’t split from debris. Unlike other bike fenders, the Longboard’s are near indestructible thanks to a high strength sandwich construction. High grade aluminium is placed between two layers of plastic for an extremely durable finish.

Adding to the durability of the SKS Longboard set are the stainless steel fittings and stays - these will last years. But ultimately it’s the longer profile and added spoiler that make these mudguards an ideal companion to a commuter bike.

Afternoon to fit

Takes a while to get these "just right". A little bit fidly and the stays are quite tough to saw through. A pain if you try to do that with the guards fitted. These are very very long and i had to remove the splash guard off the front guard so it would not impinge on my feet. Good quality but fiddly to fit.

Excellent coverage

These mudguards provide the best coverage I have seen. I managed to fit them to my roadbike- 25mm tyres- which has no eyelets and a carbon fork. A bit of fettling with some P clips and a cable tie resulted in a good looking and stable set up. To clear the front tyre I had to cut a small rectangular hole in the guard to allow it to be raised up away from the tyre- otherwise the front brake prevented there being sufficient clearance. I smeared superglue around the cut to prevent any splitting later. Finally the stainless stays are very hard to cut- I used a square file and filed a notch in each one which allowed bending and snapping with pliers. Overall, if you are happy to indulge in workarounds I think you could fit these to virtually any bike- certainly steel framed anyway.

Buy them!

I have been looking for a pair of mudguards that will provide the coverage required for solo and also group rides and I found them here! The coverage is amazing keeping water and dirt off my body and also bike frame. It took me a while to fit them and required a slight bending of the front stay to accommodate the disk brakes. I also trimmed the excess from the stays at the front after final adjustments were made. Take your time fitting them and you will not be disappointed.

Offroad Commuting Mudguard

Good guards. They will protect you from mud and rain spray. The front MG is a bit rattly, but I'm using 700x38c snow spike tyres. No problem fitting, but my Surly has plenty of space and bosses for them.

OK - but...

Great for keeping water/mud off your feet and chain. But not indestructible. They are obviously wider than most mudguards and this where the problem occurred. Using a moderately wide rim with 28 tyres and a sidepull brake caused the front mudguard to split due to continuous compression of the guard when braking. Could have been avoided by cutting away part of the mudguard to stop it being squeezed by the brake but I hadn't anticipated it until the damage was done. Also, why can't the manufacturers put the brackets on the outside of the guard so leaving a smooth internal surface to stop splashing and build up of mud at the brackets?!

Good product poor fit

These mudguards were ordered for a Boardman hybrid with wheel size of 700x26. These mudguards unfortunately don't fit and will be returned. Shame as the other SKS products I've ordered are fantastic.

SKS Longboard Mudguard

Great quality product. Fitting is a bit fiddly to get them just right but worth the time. A junior hacksaw to trim the wire struts is essential. Once fitted they look great and protect feetbackside from getting soaked from water on the road.

Good build quality

Materials all high quality. A bit fiddly to fit and translated instructions arent the simplest to follow. Would be nice if a couple of extra stay fittings had been included as its easy to drop them while fitting!

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.
