Quickguard: Rattle-free bicycle mudguards that can be removed in seconds

quickguard mudguards

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 mudguards

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.

ETA cycle insurance

Protect your bicycle this winter

On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. How much excess you will be charged is just one of the things that varies wildly between providers. Another is so called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use this term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

ETA cycle insurance has a low excess and offers new-for-old for life – however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future.

    With such a rigid bike frame as mine I could really do with a pair of mudguards that don’t rattle.

    Anyone who follows me on Twitter would know the woes I have with mudguards. I tend to destroy them. Most my bikes are trials or bmx so are guardless. These would be great for me to try out on my sensible commuter hybrid. I often get soaked on my commute. Will happily review them on Twitter if I win. I’ll do couple hundred miles with them then review. Thanks.

    I like how low the front one looks in the picture, having their position adjustable is a great opportunity to get them directly aligned with the road spray.
    Being rattle free would give give me one problem though, I wouldn’t be able to blame the mudguards anymore for the noise of my knees clicking and my teeth chattering on a frosty morning commute. 😉

    Mudguards are essential for riding throughout most of the year, but many bikes are not designed to accommodate them…… 🧐

    These look like a wonderful solution! 😀
