Okay, we know that there are some sections of the cycling community who believe that mudguards are an abomination. That they ruin the aesthetics of a bike, or impede the performance in some way. We also know that we ought not be too outspoken if we want to make a penny or two from this crazy little business. But blow it; those naysayers people are just plain wrong.

You ride a bike to work? You want to arrive with warm, dry feet. You ride to the bar? You want to arrive with warm, dry feet. You ride to the shops? You want to arrive with warm, dry feet. We're preaching to the choir here, because these aren't the guys and gals lining up in opposition, it's the MAMIL. 

So compadre, you ride on the weekend with your mates or club? Then believe us when we say that your Lycra-clad peers want to ride behind you without ingesting every piece of detritus your back wheel collects. In short, unless you're in the peloton, you ought to have mudguards. Every great rider you watch on a World Tour, Spring Classic or Club 10 rides mudguards in the winter, because they know that 'fast' is not something you look, it's something you become.

However we totally agree that there are some mudguards which rattle, squeak and generally look pants. We don't stock them. Instead we've hooked up with Portland Design Works to bring some really, really good mudguards to the cold and wet shores of this little island.  They can even fit most bikes without mudguard eyelets, meaning that we can welcome to the fold those who repent, having previously bought a bike ill equipped to host this most essential of winter components. 

Anodized aluminium, adorned with laser graphics

Includes hardware to fit around calliper brakes, under forks, and add-on mounts for bikes that lack eyelets
