Good fenders/mudguards that have held up well so far. Minimal overspray on my feet in the worst of conditions without an additional flap at the bottom. Plenty of room between the tire and fender with Specialized Sawtooth 700x38 tires for ice and general crud. But most impressive so far is that the fenders have survived my bimodal bike/bus commute. Often times I have to put my bike in the open cargo hold underneath a coach style bus where is it free to fly around and get tangled up in whatever else is in there. Luggage, other bikes (particularly handlebars and pedals), snowboards, scooters. It’s a veritable bike tumbler and these fenders are still attached and haven’t needed adjustment.
I appreciate the 700x50 Snakeskins--I've had quite a few comments before such as from non-cyclists, and none negative. The aesthetics of these fenders seem to blend naturally with my burnt-orange Rivendell Sam Hillborne frame.
Additionally--well, I GUESS the most important feature--they installation was straight forward, work very well & have been very durable! I've covered a lot of miles the past half dozen years of commuting and light touring. The coverage for typical 700x38 tires has been excellent in all conditions and truly make my ride "All Seasons" capable (winter too? Absolutely!). For the most part, they stay aligned. An occasional bing or bang to the setup can justify a very slight re-alignment (common to all bike fender brands) but with just a modest tug on one strut or another, etc. things are right again. But they are very durable for years of service nonetheless, way better in all respects than the plastics I used to have installed. That seems counter-intuitive but it's true.
All the hardware necessary is included and should I need to replace a part, strut or the fender itself, everything is a relatively easy replacement with the rest of the old kit left in-place. So, why did I replace my original set? During the course of a move back from S. Korea, the guerrillas were...err, the shippers were assertive while they were disassembling my bike out of my sight (and against my instructions--I'm sure you got the pic...). Nothing is impervious to 800 lb. guerillas.
Hey--another quality product in a long line; thank you, Velo Orange!
Having used plastic fenders in the past, these were much more sturdy and look like they will last forever. As with almost every fender out there, these too were a bit fussy to mount but it only took one trip to the hardware store to get what was needed for a neat setup. The polished hammered aluminum surface is a bit too shiny for me and these may get painted sometime in the future. In retrospect I should’ve ordered the noir finish. Still, they work and I can recommend them for a classy permanent fender installation.
