I have SKS raceblade pro mudguards.
Easy to clip on/off and does the job.
'Winter is coming.' Ordered these just now.
+1 for the raceblade. Super simple pop on and off. Absolute god send on evenings like today.
Not the latest ones/ pro's, but my front race blade snapped 3/4's of the way down in the wind over the top of Glenmacnass a few years back - whatever way the strong wind caught it. The back still going strong - I put it on the gravel bike if it's particularly wet (have a winter bike with full mudguards now)!
To follow up on this, I have SKS Speedrocker on my ebike, they're also clip on but are actually full coverage and much better. Only downside is they're aimed at gravel bikes but modern road bikes have more clearance these days so worth looking into. Similar mount to the Raceblade but with a piece in front of the fork and an extra strap on the seat tube for full rear coverage.
The Raceblade Long probably gives the best protection to you, your bike and those behind and can be unclipped relatively easily. The major problem with them is the design of the clips that open unexpectedly after a few months of use on typical Irish rural roads. Most of us in the club have now resorted to fixing them to the brackets with short cable ties rather than end up carrying them home following clip failure. SKS have replaced mine FOC on a few ocassions but there is no sign of them improving the crappy clip design.
cannot seem to get online payment sorted to buy these.
anyone else have difficulty with this website before?
EDIT: for some reason payment worked this morning...
