Black/Blue - AVAILABLE TO ORDER FROM SUPPLIER
|Description||We are pleased to introduce our new ENDUROGUARDTM mudguard which is an awesome FRONT or REAR mudguard. As a FRONT mudguard it's amazing at stopping the mud and spray thatâs thrown into your eyes from the back of the front wheel. Just snap off the round holes either side of the RRP logo and it becomes an effective REAR mudguard protecting your linkages and shock from getting hammered.
We have also added a neat design feature of the âSeal Guardâ, this enhanced bulge is specifically designed to give additional protection to your fork seals.
STANDARD: for forks from 80mm to 120mm travel
This STANDARD size is small enough to look right on short travel forks found on 4X and Cross Country/trail bikes, the fork brace is also usually closer to the stanchion so we have moved the holes for a more appropriate fit for smaller travel forks.
UNIQUE DESIGN FEATURES
The ENDUROGUARDTM is designed as a FRONT or REAR mudguard and has been specifically adapted to do both jobs extremely well, the holes that are correct for fitting to the front forks do not work when using them to fit as a rear mudguard (unless the bike has a dropped rear brace), our snap off holes allows you to rotate the guard forward for better tyre clearance and protection.
Clean with a hose or jet wash, no chemicals are needed and may degrade the print over time.
This additional bulge has been added and refined to offer additional protection for your seals against the relentless attack from spray and mud without affecting the fit or aesthetics, you will be grateful for this feature on those extremely wet rides prolonging the life of your fork seals.
The 'T' shape clamping points are designed to wrap around the fork leg providing a better and neater fit. The front of the mudguard is designed to offer slightly increased protection without spoiling the look of the mudguard. The wider curve with flat rear end offers maximum protection and frame clearance compared to a simple symmetrical curve. The main holes for the STANDARD and the LARGE are located in slightly different places, this reflects the typical differences between fork braces on long and short travel forks.
The holes for the fork brace aren't ideally located when using it as a REAR mudguard, so we built in 2 snap-off holes to allow you to rotate the guard forward and attach it to the brace between the rear stays (NB: The snap off holes are available on both the STANDARD and the LARGE sizes). This feature creates more mud/tyre clearance and a much better fit (although you can still use the main holes for the small number of bikes that have a dropped rear brace).
Choose either the STANDARD or LARGE size depending on what rear protection you want to achieve (STANDARD would be the default size recommendation).
Our product displays cool looking 2 tone screen printed graphics with our awesome Evil Eyes logo on the front to finish off the look nicely. The fork travel suitability for each size is printed on the side of the mudguard for ease of purchasing.
We took a more expensive route opting for a custom thickness of polypropylene to meet our requirements, we felt the standard "off the shelf" options were either too thick (1.2mic) or too thin (0.8mic), our custom material sits squarely in-between. This allows us to offer the best of both worlds; the durability and quality feel that a thicker material gives, combined with the fit flexibility that a thinner material delivers.
All sizes and colours will come with our new custom bright white zip ties made to a custom length. WHY ON EARTH?.....well the bright white zip ties simply disappear on white forks but also offer a nice colour contrast on the other coloured forks. Whilst standard black and natural / opaque colours and lengths were available, these were dull and either not long enough for large forks, or too long for the packaging. We think they look great with the white graphics and letâs face it, every mountain biker has black zip ties so if you donât agree then theyâre easily replaced.
1) Remove the 4 zip ties supplied and insert them into all the holes as shown below
2) Bend and slide mudguard into position from the front
3) Loosely fasten up the top zip ties around the fork brace first then the legs
4) Centralise and then tighten up the top zip ties REAL tight so it won't move
5) Rotate the bottom zip ties until you get the desired angle and then tighten
6) Cut off any excess from the zip ties and rotate them out of the way
1) Remove the snap-off holes either side of RRP logo as highlighted in red below
2) Loosely attach the zip ties to the rear stays and brace
3) Align to give you the correct tyre clearance
4) Now do up all the zip ties REAL tight
As with all adhesive backed stickers itâs advisable to warm the sticker with a hair dryer before removal to reduce the amount of adhesive left behind, use âsticky stuffâ remover or soap and water to remove any remaining residue from the mudguard or zip ties.
