Our review

Aesthetically pleasing ’guards but inferior to SKS
Skip to view product specifications

These mudguards aren’t made of extruded aluminium like the Salmon Super Profil they superficially resemble but rather a composite sandwich-like chromoplastic.

They fit easily to the frame, fork and mudguard eyelets, and are available to fit 26in and 700C wheels in widths from 30-60mm. Each ’guard has one thick stay each side, in the form of a U-shaped hoop whose ends are at the dropout.

There is limited adjustment here, using small screws in plastic brackets at the front and P-clip fixings at the rear dropouts. If you want more adjustment you’ll need to trim the stays.

The main selling point is probably their appearance: the slim, shoulderless profile looks neat. But the plastic fixings would doubtless break away if anything jammed, thus preventing a painful face-plant.

That’s a useful safety feature, which is also offered by SKS’s P35 mudguards. As those are £10 cheaper and offer better spray protection at the sides, more adjustment and more secure fixings, it’s difficult to recommend the C-Lites over them.
