Cheap(ish) rear guard but that's reflected in a pretty basic performance

A simple rigid guard with the same adjustable strap attachment as the X Blade.

This made the initial setup fiddly, and although it does give you a quick release option, we found that didn’t compensate for it working slightly loose and having to be re-tightened during the ride. Of course, if you have an awkward-to-fit seat post this might work for you, but the fixed shape meant it wasn’t otherwise as adaptable as the X Blade, and the very rigid nature of the material gave a certain flap factor. It’s a cheap ‘n’ cheerful option but we’d rather save up and go for the Crud Raceguard rear or the X Blade from the same family.
