Mudguards

Why should I use a mudguard?

A mudguard will protect your bike as well as you from dirt from the roads, your tyres and your bike. Your clothes will be cleaner and drier (allowing you to maintain body temperature) and your bike will be less mucky.

Dirt and mud from the streets and roads can be very abrasive and can damage certain delicate parts of your bike. Having a guard will protect the shock absorber and fork from dirt, but also any stones thrown up from the road. 


What types of mounts are available for your mudguards?

MD-FIX

Universal adjustable mount for diameters of 17 to 41mm (forks and seat stays).

How to choose a mudguard

When choosing a mudguard, it is important to take into account the following points:

Your discipline. Mountain bike mudguards are larger than those for road and city bikes.

Mounting system. If you want to be able to remove the mudguard quickly or not, or if your frame has fixing points (in particular the hybrid bike with its fixing points above the wheel’s braking points, on the frame).

Protection you need. Our different ranges offer various lengths and widths to meet the level of protection you’re looking for. Our minimalist mudguards are discrete on your bike.

What do I need to fit the mudguard to my bike?

Most of our mudguards are universal. They can be mounted on any bicycle through attach on the seat post or the frame. Only PARAGON requires threaded mounting pads.


Which mudguard that is easy and quick to fix and remove is best for my racing bike?

We suggest that you use the Swan R / Croozer R mudguard setsIt is easy and quick to fit without any tools using the MD Quick and MD Turn systems.


Is it possible to have a mudguard as well as pannier racks?

Yes, of course. It is fully possible to have a Raider Front pannier rack with a Classic or Shield R30 mudguard.

If you want to use a Paragon mudguard, your frame must be compatible. The Paragon needs to be attached to threaded holes so if you already have a pannier rack, you will need two sets of holes on each side of the frame. This is often the case for road or city bikes but less so for more sporty bikes (race bikes or touring bikes). 


What is the environmental impact of the GREEN’Z mudguard?

More than 50% of the resin comes from vegetables in France. This means it is produced respecting the environment (reduced carbon footprint, less water consumption) and can be recycled. 

When recycled, the resin produced can be used again to produce mudguards or other products.
