Product Description

The Zefal Swan rear mudguard is ideal for road bikes and hybrid bikes that don't have the clearance for full mudguard mounts. While it won’t keep you as protected as a fully integrated mudguard it will stop the spray covering your back.

A width of 45mm means the Swan rear mudguard blends better with the narrower tyres you find on road bikes and sporty hybrids. The clamp will also fit any basic seatpost and is very easy to attach.

Perfect for commuters in wet (not sloppy) conditions the Zefal Swan guard will keep you dry.

  • Fixation: MD-Turn: On seat post, adjustable for 25 to 32mm dia
  • Blade Width: 45mm
  • Wheel Dia: 700c / 28 inch

Nice and simple mudguard

Just wanted a simple mudguard that I could switch between a couple of bikes quickly and easily. This does the job perfectly and can be fitted in a matter of seconds. Think it was designed to be used on the continent rather than the UK as there is a reflective section on the top of the guard which is angled slightly to the left and not straight back which means its not much use when cars are passing you on the right. Not really a niggle or deal breaker but just something I noticed when fitting it. Can't praise Tredz service enough either. I ordered online lunchtime on Monday, free standard delivery so wasn't expecting it for a few days, and it was delivered by courier the Tuesday morning. I even had a couple of packets of Haribo as a treat. Very happy customer.

Had this rear mudguard recommended to me. Not disappointed, bought it from Tredz who gave excellent service.

Good option.

There are a few options around for a temporary rear mudguard and I decided to give the Zefal a go. It hugs the wheel slightly better so does a good job at keeping the water off you. Its also pretty good value. Easy to fit and adjust. Simple good option.

Does the job

Bought this for a giant escape as didn't want the hassle and expense of fitted mudguards. Easy to fit to seat post. It took me a while to work out to how to angle the mudguard in place but an Allen key and holding the other side in my teeth tightened it up. Possibly user error but worked! Looks great, stops water spray, perfect.

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.
