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 35mm 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.

I'm very happy with my new fenders, and they have proven their worth many times since they went into service. Good quality, quiet, effective and solid.
Though I'm pretty handy in the workshop, I did find the install instructions very confusing. At one point I was so frustrated and, thinking that I must have bought the wrong size, I put the fenders back into the box to get them ready to return. The next day I had another go at putting them on and after several hours of grief finally did it. I think Velo might want to revise the literature they provide - I know that I'm not the only one who has had this complaint.
Otherwise, as stated...worth every penny. They look great on my old Raleigh Record Ace!
Love the look and this is my second set. First rear one completely cracked in half at the hole that allows for attachment to the seat stay cross bridge. Cracked at one year and 3000 miles of use. Hoping for better luck with the second set. Also would be nice if you sold individual replacement fenders.
A little bit on the hard side to adjust and align but the result is worth the effort.
What a beauty I ride now!
All fenders can be a challenge to install, particularly the rear fender, and these have their moments. This is the second pair I have installed. Neither bike has threaded dropouts so I had to use a small nut on inside of the dropouts. I do wish that there were an extra pair of mounting bolts included that were just a few mils longer. There was one that was right included, and I had another that was the correct length in my parts bin, in order to make them work with a rear rack, the fender, and the locking nut.
They give a bike a very stylish look. The bikes I installed these on are from the 70's and 80's. One other thing, these fenders do not have any break-away mechanism for the stays, if that is a concern for the speed demons out there, - be aware.
Very happy with these. Instructions aren't as complete as I'd like, but sufficient to figure out what was needed. I have the Black (Noir) in 700x45, on a 2020 Trek Domane SLR. Fit perfectly. Fiddly to get installed and adjusted, but once on, excellent! Did a 100 mile ride today on wet roads (rain had ceased but terribly overcast kept things wet) and my shoes stayed clean and dry, as did the rest of me and the bike! Made me feel better about the negatives of fenders: feet will hit front fender more easily (I adjusted fine; slow starts/turns i.e. parking lot maneuevers, are where it can get you.) Tiny bit of noise if anything touches bike parts (disc brake caliper; can easily bend the offending bits to clear.) Less easy is what to do about my 1UPUSA rack that clamps the wheels to secure bike. Front clears and reaches rubber, but back cannot and must clamp on the fender. Haven't yet determined course, but expect I'll come up with rubber shims between clamp and fender, and maybe something beneath fender at that point to support it. It'll be okay, I think. Last WISH would be for easier on/off method but for full coverage fenders like these, I don't see too much possible there. I do intend to work on the seatstay bolt bits because those were tedious on my setup, with more screws needed for the bike itself (not VELO's fault) and more SHIMS, which are fiddly to keep in place if I take fenders off and put on again. I will surely do that some, since we have a LOT of the year that I don't need them. All in all, I'm happy I chose these!
