Stay dry on your road ride with the SKS Race Blade Long Fender Set.

These full coverage fenders fit modern road racing frames with tight tire clearances and without traditional fender/rack eyelets. The extra length and pre-installed mud flaps keep your feet dry and protect against the wheel spray, something both you and the rider on tail will appreciate.

Both the front and rear fenders are held securely in place using snap-in clips which attach to your wheel's quick release skewers. Snap-in attachments also affix the fenders to slim brackets which are installed under the fork crown and seatstay bridge. This design makes installation and removal a breeze, so you're prepared to ride in any weather. And like the standard Race Blade, sliding stay brackets make it easy to fine-tune set-up to accommodate different bikes and tire widths.

The Race Blade Long Fenders are designed to cover 700c tires from 18-23mm wide and are available in Black or Silver.

The Best Fender System for Race bikes

I installed two sets of these (a 58cm Bianchi race bike now turned commuter and a very small women's Bianchi) and so far am super happy with how they've worked. Yes, the first set took some time to get on (45 min - 1 hr), but the second set was much much quicker. These attach, in part, using the skewers, so if you're someone who takes off the front wheel a lot, you may need to do some minor tweaking after putting back on the wheel.

Front coverage is great IMO, while these do not provide full coverage in the rear,it's close given that there are few options out there that do on bikes that can't take normal fenders. I do believe they could somehow use the water bottle mounts to hold a third section that would provide almost complete coverage.

Generally speaking though, I would easily recommend these.

Decent fenders, tricky to adjust

These are high quality,but finicky adjustment. Once installed the perform very well. They do require occasional tweaking and adjustment to remain centered over your tires and prevent rubbing. They are very lightweight and you'll hardly notice them.

Novel idea but dangerous

These fenders, while a novel idea, are incredibly dangerous. People, like myself, are lured to these because they can be taken off and put back on so easily. The latch system on these fenders eventuall will fail however, as they did on mine. There was a recall and a product redesign on these a couple years ago but it wasn't adequate. Eventually your rear fender will fail at the grey clip in point, rotate, jam in your rear wheel and cause you to skid out of control. I know 5 people who this has happened to. Thankfully none of them were seriously injured. It's just a matter of time, in my opinion, before someone skids right into oncoming traffic because of these. Buy with caution.

Wanted a full fender set for my Soma Smoothie commuter bike

Installation was fairly straightforward. After some minor adjustments the set went on the bike great. And when not needed the front and rear are easily moved by just clipping off at the brakesets and wheel axles.

Great product and great support!

This is the second set I've bought, the first for my husband's bike and now for my bike. These fenders work great, have brackets that fit nicely without hindering your brakes, and allow you to easily take them on/off as needed. I had a bracket break once and, after contacting the manufacturer, was sent a new one right away. SKS really stands by their product and is happy to help if you need it. No jerking you around.

Works as advertised

I put these fenders on my road bike. I had to make adjustments but the product is designed so that you can make it fit most anything. Coverage was good. The mud flaps were effective.

I unfortunately disagree post of the posts

I bought these to make it easy to remove when not needed. I had previously had permanent style mounted fenders, but one had broken recently so decided to try these. My biggest complaint is the two smaller pieces of the fenders that are mounted in front of the brakes on front and rear. With the brackets provided I find that they rattle and shake quite a bit from road vibrations. Mainly the front, so much that I often end up pulling it off mid ride. My second compliant is that when you have to remove the wheel, you have to deal with the tabs that are on your skewers and position them correctly again to get the fender in the correct position. I have found this most troublesome when I get a flat, and all I want to do is get back on the road as quickly as possible. This just adds to an unforeseen step in getting that accomplished.

On the positive side, they do stay in place once mounted to your desire. That being said, I will not buy these again and instead just go back to permanent style mounted fenders.

Great fenders!

I bought these to use on my LeMond road bike which had very little clearance between the brakes and the wheels. I didn't care much for the kind that strap to the fork as they don't provide much coverage. These were easy to install, provide lots of coverage, and can be removed in about 10 seconds.

The only thing that bothered me was the bracket connecting to the brakes. Once in place, the bracket negates the teeth on the washers that keep the brake calipers from rotating. I tightened the bolt up really tight, but occasionally I will need to rotate the calipers back into alignment if they get bumped. Not a serious issue, just a minor annoyance.

Overall, I love these and would definitely purchase these again as standard equipment for all my road bikes.

Best fender set for a road bike yet

These fenders are pretty great, a bit on the expensive side but worth it for a full fender for a road bike. Installation instructions are junk, better off watching a youtube video on how to install them. They also came with missing pieces (which biketiresdirect's fantastic customer service helped me with) and the end connectors were a newer version that was not pictured either on the box instructions or the picture on the website. Also, I did not have enough clearance for the short fender portion behind the seatstays. Other than that, they are great fenders with some adjustability and stays put once connected, I also love the quick disconnect feature. Once they get the parts issues and instructions figured out they'll be good to go.

It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Nice coverage, low profile. The quick release mechanism is handy should you need to remove them to maintenance the bike, or on the sunny days of January you can run without them if you absolutely have to.

The biggest problem I had with them was during assembly, the illustration on the box shows an open ended bracket where it mounts on the skewers, the part that goes over the skewers is a loop.

Race Blade Long...awesome!

Living in Portland, I needed a full set of fenders that would fit my road bike. My Race Blades were OK, but I wanted to be drier. These fit right away and I was off and riding in about 15 minutes. And while I'm not completely dry, I'm certainly a LOT drier than I expected.

Works as expected, great coverage and no rub.

Been using the standard race blades and am happy to finally see an extended version. The extra coverage is great. Could be still a bit longer at the back (never too much), but works well. Installation is simple, and is easy to get on and off. Stays in place and easier to adjust than the standard rubber straps on the regular race blades. Also it is more structurally rigid and don't have problems with wheel rub due to movementdeflection. Once set, they stay where they are even after removal and reinstall which is a breeze with the snap onoff system. The mounting bits left on the bike are not the most attractive, but not bad. Only small issue is some interference with the stationary trainer interface at the rear QR, but no big deal. Primary use is on a dedicated rain road bike where there is no clearance for standard fenders.
