These fenders feature an art-deco, zeppelin profile and are available in high polished silver and smooth Noir. They're 52mm wide, designed for 700c and 27" wheels, and work with tires up to 42mm 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

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.

Many on the web ask what fenders fit the Marrakesh. These are perfect. they clear the disk brakes easy. Plus they are beautiful.
My communications with Velo Orange Scotty on the other side of the world was excellent too. Thank you.
The fenders performed perfectly while riding through rain, puddles and some mud.
When you commute to work, fenders are a 'must have' accessory. for 10 years, i used plastic fenders - which are heavier and relatively unattractive. When we bought a custom Waterford for my wife, the shop guys recommended Velo Orange fenders based on their stylish appearance. Since then, every bike we've ridden was outfitted with Velo Orange Fenders - mostly 'snake-skin' or Zeppelin designs. They always look great - and have plenty of hardware/fittings to allow installations on a wide variety of frames. If you are new to fenders, expect a 2-3 hour time frame for fitting everything properly - including getting the fenders' curvature evenly aligned with your tires.
IMO, you should always use semi-permanent thread lock (e.g. Loctite blue) on ALL your fittings. We ride lots of gravel and the constant vibration from speedy descents will vibrate most fittings loose in a couple of rides.
Not much to say besides that these are high quality fenders and they work great
