If you’re frequently cycling on roads, especially during the wetter months, you’ll know that the amount of mud, grit and general gunk that sprays up from your tyres can make for one extremely miserable journey if you aren’t prepared. Mudguards properly attached above the front and rear wheel will prevent the vast majority of this up spray, making for a safer, drier and happier ride. It’s fair to say that a proper mudguard set is an absolute essential for those commuting to work in work clothes, or just using their bike to en-route to take care of errands.
Mud Guards are also obvious choices for people riding mountain bikes across varied terrain, full suspension mountain bikes and hardtail mountain bikes benefit from the addition of mudguards, allowing the rider to keep their mountain bike kit and clothing in the best possible condition.
Don’t let rainy, muddy conditions slow you down, and equip your bike with a mudguard from Westbrook Cycles. Modern mudguards are lightweight, solid and easy to clip on and off. Gone are the days of frustratingly fiddling with ill-fitting cheap mudguards, and for those worrying about ruining the aesthetics of their new road bike, most road bike manufacturers produce bike-specific guards to fit seamlessly with the design of the bike.
Westbrook Cycles have mudguards available from all of the biggest brands, including Mucky Nutz, SKS Blades and Topeak; and these brands offer an excellent variety of mudguard options, such as reflective mudguards and mudguard blades which are designed for low-clearance installation above slim road tyres.
