The simple quick-release fastening with power strap enables a tight connection to all seatposts and most frames. The Dashblade features angular adjustment for the perfect coverage. Due to its cool stealthy design Dashblade and Dashboard is a matching pair.

This mudguard looks awesome (well, for a mudguard), and seems to provide pretty good cover. Unfortunately, the fastening system is less impressive, at least in my experience.
The Dashblade attaches to the bike's seatpost via a fabric strap, with a rubbery material on one side for grip. One end of the strap goes to a plastic clip lever that allows the strap to be tensioned and locked in place (quite a clever design). The other end is held in place by a simple lever clip (a bit like the ones found on some helmet straps) that allows the length of the strap to be adjusted. This is held in place by a couple of plastic knobs, and mine came loose when riding, dumping the mudguard, strap and clip (which I couldn't find afterwards) onto the trail. This happened the first time I used the Dashblade, around 15 miles into the ride.
If you're after a quick-release rear mudguard, I've had better results with the Oriqami and Mud Shovel models from PDW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice and cheap
This was a good and cheap mudguard and its sitts tight. Catches everything even on snowy and icy roads. Impressed
