Details
Previously known as ESGE Chromoplastics, SKS are the Rolls-Royce of mudguards; they are virtually unbreakable and are very elegant. Their beauty is not just skin-deep. The stainless steel v-shaped stays make for easy fitting and the quick release Secu-clips are far safer than standard fixings, preventing front wheel lock up in case of a foreign object getting trapped between guard and wheel. The mudguards have no sharp edges and are amazingly flexible. The production process of fine aluminium foil is encapsulated within a matris of high performance plastic. This process provides high resistance to corrosion resulting in great flexibility.

Not A Good Choice If Space Is Tight

ConsBulky, PoorBracket
ProsRobust
Tried to fit front guard (smallest width) to an Audaxy Orbit Harrier from about 1999. Steel frame, 25mm tyres, RX100 dual pivots. Eventually got it on, but the square shoulders take excess room in the brake so when the brake is operated it deflected the mudguard which rubbed the tyre. Might be ok if brake shoes were brand new, but they're not. Also the front bracket is way too tall, needs hacking to go onto a steel road fork. Maybe this narrow size is for narrow tyres on a bike designed for big tyres. Have used bigger sizes on bigger bikes ok. Robust, but over years they delaminate from the cut edges, unsightly but harmless.

Consslow to fit and set up
Prossolid build
Had mine fitted for over a year. Haven't budged. Very close fit but despite that they have retained their clearance. Take an age to fit at first but don't all mudguards?

ConsFiddly to assemble
ProsGood looking, tough, does the job
I was rebuilding my bicycle following an eight year absence from the recreation. Obviously this was one of the components needed to replace worn out ones and make the bike look good.
The safety feature on the front guard works extremely well as I found out on a fast descent from Mt Pantokrator in Corfu in 1994 (this safety feature has been around some time).
If you have dynamo lighting the metal strip inside the guard carries the current thus reducing the need for wires. I did find it very fiddly to assemble but once in place it is very neat and replaces the old black plastic tops which came off so easily.

ConsQuestionnable safety feature
ProsLooks
The front mudguard has a patent "safety" feature which is a plastic connector designed to break in the event of snagging. It makes the connecting rod longer, so you either have to use a hacksaw to reduce the length or consider removing the plastic connector. Also, be aware that 700 x 35 means 700 tyre and 35 mudguard. If your tyre is 700 x 35 you need the 45mm mudguard.

Prostough,stylish
My first set lasted through nearly 10 years of daily commuting, so they are worth the investment. I would say, having fitted these, and two other sets to other bikes recently, that fitting the stays can be a bit fiddly, and using a hacksaw to reduce the length of them on one wheel is usually necessary, but once in place that's it for good!

Will this set fit on tyres size 60-622 28x2.35in or will I need something bigger?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

Your tyres are 60mm wide and the widest option these guards are available in is 50mm so are narrower. The only guards we have that are wider than your tyres are 65mm so there will be very little clearance either side. We do two sets in 65mm, one set from SKS which are part number 37018 and one set from Axiom which are part number 41833.

Thanks.
Which Width Of Mudguard Is Part Number 34053 ?
By
17 Jan 2016
Hi there, I bought a Thorn Audax last year and the mudguards on the invoice are part number 34053. Can you let me know which width they would be? I've measured them and they seem to be between sizes. Thanks Steve
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

That part on your invoice is the same as the 35mm version of these guards you've left the question on. The ones on the invoice are the workshop versions without any packaging.

Thanks.
What Is The Appropriate Width Chromoplastic Mudguard?
By

To fit to a 27 X 1 and 1/8 wheel
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

With 27 x 1 1/8 tyres you should be able to use the 35mm guards, I would however recommend going for the 45mm guards just for the extra bit of clearance and it would allow you to change to 27 x 1 1/4 tyres if you ever wanted to.

Thanks.
