Mudguards for race bikes with minimum clearance, extended rear guard for full coverage
In response to numerous requests, we have designed longer tailpieces for the rear Roadracer. We have also beefed up the product in key areas to extend the life of the product.
Traditional mudguard construction dictates a sturdy design, with bolted fixing at the brake bridges, and metal or rigid plastic utilised in the main Arc. The principle has remained unchanged for a century or more. The CRUD ‘Roadracer’ concept turns orthodox road mudguard design on its head. We reasoned that if you could ‘float’ the mudguard off the rim, as in the diagram, then you could do away with a lot of the traditional fixings. The ultralight ‘Roadracer’ mudguard (180g per pair) just hovers in place, so there is nothing to rattle or rub. The brushes instantly dampen any road vibrations, settling the mudguard into its neutral central position.
In extensive tests we have failed to wear the pile against the rim, and the friction involved is so light as to be un-measurable. Customers can get replacement pile strips for the cost of a couple of stamps.
Suggested max Tyre Width: 25mm
