Removable and lightweight, these fenders are a great product. If you live in a region where it rains consistently, as I do, you can leave them on your bicycle as long as you want. Yet when the weather decides to show you some sun, you can take these babies right off with no trouble at all. It's quick, and neither the installation nor the removal leave any scuffs on your frame. For those areas where the rain is off and on, they can easily be removed and put back on when the rain begins again. The elastic strap mechanisms provide for quick and easy application to the fork blades and seat stay, eliminating a possible daunting task from the equation.
These fenders provide a reasonable amount of coverage considering the low profile. They keep the mud off your back and the optional rubber extensions add an extra few inches. In my case, I've left them off, but they are just as low profile as the rest of the package and require no extra labor to install.
Ride safe and stay dry!
