Superlight Fenders For Race Bikes

Roadracermk2-large-imageThe CRUD ‘Roadracer’ concept turns orthodox mudguard design on its head. We reasoned that if you could float the mudguard off the rim then you could do away with a lot of the traditional fixings. The ultralight Roadracer mudguard (under 200 grams the 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.

The key to fitting the Roadracers is this…can you get a 4mm allen key between the top of the tyre and the forks-brake bridge-brakes? If you can, then the Roadracers will fit your racebike. Doesn’t matter what tyre size, it‘s clearance that is important

    Interesting.

    Although I’m a touring cyclist and not a racer I have used fenders for years. It has been a love hate relationship. I’ve received derisive looks at my fenders. You might think I had a kick stand. However,when it starts to rain guess who I find drafting me?

    Then there’s goose droppings which are everywhere on our bike routes and there’s the water bottle just behind the wheel. You get the picture.

    I love fenders.

    The hate comes in with constant adjustment and haggling with them. These bad boys might just be the answer.
