Are bicycle mudguards a relic of bygone days? In Britain it can certainly feel that way. Sure they add a little weight, and spoil the lines of a sleek road bike, but given how often it rains here, it’s odd that so few bikes sold in Britain come without them fitted as standard…especially given how the penalty for cycling without them at this time of year is a damp and gritty streak up your back
Quickguard is a new mudguard solution for bikes without mudguard eyelets. Launched initially as crowdfunded project, after 18 months of product development, and 50,000 km of testing they’re on the market – just in time for an exceptionally wet autumn and winter.
Quickguard comprise a polycarbonate blade and weather-proof aluminium anodised single stay. The design promises fully adjustable, rattle-free full coverage and can be removed in seconds – they don’t mount onto the bicycle frame directly, but instead onto the drop out. Quickguard is suitable for all 700c bikes with tyres up to 32c wide.
