Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought these based on a good review in Cycling Active magazine. I have not been impressed by them. The front one to be fair is ok, the coverage it provides is decent, it feels sturdy enough and does attach/detach quickly. The back guard though, provides poor coverage in my opnion and is very fiddly to fit. I have gatorskin 25's and although it does clear them, its a fairly tight fit.The rear is also quite awkward to put on/off. I did have a problem with the plastic bracket snapping on the rear guard. Credit to CRC, they surpassed themselves in regards to Customer Service to rectify the faulty product at no cost/inconvenience to me. Sadly the product isn't up to these high standards and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
