Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

That rear guard is gopping.

Is there really a target market for this?   The front guard is pretty neat but the rear is a bit of a pigs ear and looks like the crappy seat post mounted ones.

Most gravel and adventure bikes have mounting holes for full rear mudguards that allow a nice wheel hugging curve, a design that used them would be better even if it only covered some of the back wheels.

Me no likey the rear, in case you havent guessed.

No impact on drivetrain as it is nowhere near it.

 

So, does the front guard do anything useful? It looks like it might keep some mud off the fork crown, perhaps. Not sure why that would be an area of concern sufficient to make me want to bother. If there was still a brake mounted there... but of course there isn't

It would be good to see pictures of the rider and drivetrain after riding through mud, puddles and crud, with and without the protection of these guards.
