700c Hammered Fenders, 45mm - Silver and Noir
These fenders feature a classic hammered pattern and are available in high polished silver and smooth Noir. They're 45mm wide, designed for 700c and 27" wheels, and work with tires up to 37mm wide. We include a hardware kit to work with almost any type of mounting in the same finish as the fenders.
- Fenders are made from aluminum alloy for strength while staying lightweight
- Rear fender is 120cm long and the front is 90cm long
- Both come pre-drilled for stays. Front is pre-drilled for a fork crown mount
- Hardware kit includes: 5mm polished aluminum stays, R-clips and screws, L bracket, reinforcement plates, stay-to-fender closed eyelet bolts, fork crown daruma, sliding bracket, leather washers, and detailed installation instructions
Velo Orange fenders are designed to be full coverage, which means that you and your bike's drivetrain will stay clean of road muck and grime. Both front and rear fenders have full wrap around the width of your tires to eliminate spray in all directions.

The worst instructions I have ever seen accompanying a product. Expect to spend hours installing these unless you have prior experience putting fenders on bikes. My recommendation is to send the box directly to your local bike store and pay someone for the time and effort.
If you choose to install them yourself, a word of caution: with disc brakes, you will need to go to the hardware store to purchase additional screws to attach these to the fork.
Warning #2: these require a metal saw to trim the ends of the bars. Expect to go to the hardware store for a hacksaw.
I suppose most fenders will have these issues because fenders are what they are, but it was a painful experience installing them.
Now onto the pros:
They look incredibly good, they work very well for fenders and have kept my body and limbs clean and bike relatively clean for thousands of miles thus far. I am very pleased with their performance.
Customer service is great. Igor responds promptly and he is a down to earth, humble guy.
Put these on my Giant Nutra commuter bike. I installed them myself, and while the hardware kit supplied was very extensive, I needed to buy two more stainless steel bolts to mount the rear fender. They look great and are working well so far.
I get compliments all the time on my Peugeot with these hammered fenders. I'm a bit of a punisher on bikes; fenders are no exception. Ya see the issue with smoother fenders is if you dent them, the nick sticks out like a sore thumb. These hammered numbers do an exceptional job at obscuring damage thus HEIGHTENING THY BLING FACTOR. Pain in the rear to install so call your LBS if you're intimidated, lazy or tired.
