Good entry level combo that's easy to use and gives good coverage

Fork crown fitting guards that offer more front wheel coverage than the simpler down tube style are getting more popular – but make sure that your fork crown a) has a hole in to take the ?tting (some newer ones don’t), and b) that it’s large enough.

Once you’ve done that, this is a piece of cake to fit, needing only one Allen key and that’s supplied. Once setup, a bracket stays in place under the fork and the guard slides easily off and on. There’s a bit of movement between the bike/bracket join, but that aside, we were surprised by the coverage this gave. A relatively short front wheel guard made a big difference to the mud factor. Our only real gripe is that it’s not the prettiest we’ve ever seen, but that’s probably a re?ection of the value price point.
