SKS Raceblade Pro XL Mudguard

The rubber fittings are not strong enough to hold the mudguards in place. They went into frame and halted the bike and ruined the rim after I hit the potholes, while cycling in London road. Luckily, there was no car right behind me.

Raceblade XL

Useful mudguards. Easily put on but can also be easily knocked out and so starts rubbing the tyre.

Excellent for bikes with no brake caliper clearance

Very good value for money, not very hard to attach it to the bike and it stays in place.

The best removable mudguards

Over the years I've tried almost all the various removeable mudguards from the original Crudcatcher thro to these. These are by far the best in terms of ease of fitting and performance and they blend in with our bikes really well. I run 28c's and my wife 32c's and they work on both and are so easy to take off and refit. The only downside is that unlike some others they do not pass under the brake caliper and protect the back of the seat tube but I've solved that by cannibalizing a section from my old mudguards cutting them to the suitable length and zip tying them in place between the rear brake and the bottom bracket - you hardly see them.

SKS Raceblade Pro XL Mudguard Set

I was looking for a mudguard to fit 28mm tyres and these are absolutely superb, really easy to fit even for someone like me with no mechanical skills. In wet conditions they performed fantastically well (I didn't have to wipe any mud off the rear of my jacket). I have not taken them off the bike but I can see that that will be really easy too. Would recommend these to anyone.

Not Suitable for Giant Defy 2016

Unfortunately I tried fitting these to my 2016 Defy but was having no luck at all. Tried every possible angle and length on the arms but it just would not reach fully to the seat stays and was having a similar issue on the forks. Shame really because the build quality etc looks very good.

Well thought out and works a treat.

Bought the XL version for 28mm tyres on a compact S road frame. Unlike other mudguards, this really fits all without having to resort to excessive swearing and a saw. Design allows infinite adjustability with a provides allen key. Recommended.

Mudguard Guide

Which mudguards are best for me?

Mudguards come in three main types – full length, clip-on and mountain bike style. Depending on your bike frame you may be able to fit some or all of these types.

Full length mudguards

These traditional looking mudguards are commonly fitted to hybrid and touring bikes. They're great for commuting too as they offer the most protection. The long rear mudguard also keeps the rider behind clean.  

You will need a bike frame with eyelets – usually at the apex on the fork and where you rear wheel fits to the frame (at the dropouts). If your bike doesn't have eyelets (most mountain bikes and road bikes) you'll want can consider clip-on mudguards.

Clip-on mudguards

Clip-on mudguards are super easy to fit to your frame and offer a good amount of coverage for you and your frame. Simple fastenings make fitting and removal quick which is great if you want one set of mudguards for multiple bikes.

You can usually fit clip-on mudguards to road bikes with minimal clearance such as race bikes.

MTB style mudguards

Mostly fitted to mountain bikes, these mudguards are designed to mount to your downtube or fork crown and clamped to the seatpost. They're ideal for any bike with suspension and will fit to almost any frame design. Simple attachment means these guards are quick to fit and remove. These mudguards will offer limited protection compared to the other two types, but they will stop much of the spray.  

How to choose a compatible mudguard?

Check your wheel size and tyre width

When buying a mudguard you'll have to choose one that will fit your wheel size and cover the width of your tyre.

You can find both these figures on the sidewall of your tyre. You will see a combination of digits such as 700x32 or 27.5x2.40. The first digit is your wheel diameter (size) and the second digit is tyre width. Road bikes are measured in millimeters while mountain bikes are measure in inches. 

Check your brake clearance (full length mudguards) 

There should be a 20mm gap between the top of your tyre and the mudguard and about 5mm either side. Most standard road caliper brakes offer up to around 40mm while deep drop (also known as long drop) brakes have arms over 55mm to allow room for mudguards. 

Depending on the thickness of your tyre, your brake arms may have to extend 50mm or over to reach the braking rim. 

What if my bike has suspension?  

You can't bolt a mudguard onto the apex of a suspension fork like you can a rigid one. You'll want to make sure the mudguard doesn't touch your wheel when the fork is fully compressed. 

If you have a full suspension MTB you're main concern isn't likely getting wet and muddy. If you run a dropper post you won't want the mudguard clamp getting in the way, so it's best to avoid having a mudguard.
