ProGuard The ProGuard is our amazing new range of FRONT and REAR mudguards for disc brake mountain bikes offering unmatched protection from mud and spray, it’s perfect for Enduro or Downhill racers and essential for the weekend warrior looking for the very best protection. Our design intent was to increase the tyre clearance, improve fit, and reduce the mud clogging issues seen with this type of mudguard. The STANDARD offers superb protection in a shorter more compact design, whereas the longer MAX PROTECTION version (21mm longer at front and 68mm longer at the rear) offers incredible unmatched levels of protection especially for high speed racing.
The ProGuard range of mudguards have a soft high gloss finish which is a characteristic of our highly polished mold and our special polypropylene mix, this unique mix has been specifically blended for:
COLD WEATHER STRENGTH HIGH IMPACTS HIGH FLEXIBILITY HIGH DURABILITY As a result of achieving the above properties it means that the surface layer is soft and will scratch easily, you must also be careful about putting any chemicals onto the surface as it may tarnish the finish. That said we have tested and can recommend the following chemicals to use:
Silicone - Spray high quality silicone onto surface and very gently remove with a clean cloth to maintain a high gloss finish and to stop dirt and water from sticking.
Bike cleaner – Non caustic bike cleaners can be used on the ProGuard mudguard
GT85/WD40/Solvents - Only rub these on the surface if you want to remove the gloss and display a matte finish to match your bike.
NB: REMEMBER – ADD ANY STICKERS BEFORE YOU USE ANY OF THE ABOVE CHEMICALS ON THE MUDGUARD OR THEY WILL NOT STICK
Any other chemicals other than what is listed above should not be used on the ProGuard mudguards as it will likely remove the gloss finish.
REAR The ProGuard - REAR mudguard is designed to help protect your shock, linkages and bearings from getting hammered at high velocity from your back wheel.

INDENT A mudguard tracking close to the tyre can offer great mud and spray protection but often at the cost of mud clogging and slowing the rider down, a mudguard that sits high off the tyre is conversely going to offer less protection so a compromise is needed.
FRONT The front has been made longer than some of the offerings out there as we see this is an area that can significantly improve the protection of the face and eyes when riding at high speed. Our turn down at the front deflects the spray downwards without clogging with mud which causes blockages
SNAP-OFF HOLE COVERS We have added hole covers that reduce the amount of mud that can get through unused holes. Once you have chosen which holes you want to use for fitting, you just use a screw driver to push the cover out leaving it clear for the zip tie. The 24 holes allow you to fit the mudguard to every type of conventional fork including BOOST forks (except reverse arch), this allows you to customise your fit
REAR FLICK The rear flick was designed to simply offer more protection without adding extra length, it prevents more mud and spray from flying up the side of the frame especially when the wheel is turned
STICKER RECESS The recess down the centre is a nice easy reference to apply our coloured stickers to, but it has a more important job, this recess prevents the sticker having to sit proud on the surface of the guard making it vulnerable to durability and jet wash issues. The supertack glue used on our stickers is strong, although it’s fair to say that no sticker is able to withstand a sustained attack from a powerful jet wash, although the recess does prevent a direct hit
SEAL SHIELD Our widely acclaimed Seal Shield has made it to the PROGUARD as a means of offering greater protection for your seals from high velocity mud and spray, the Seal Shield section also provides additional strength and rigidity to the rear reducing flex
MAX PROTECTION VERSION We offer the longer MAX PROTECTION version to be the best protection in the world, this version is 68mm longer at the rear. No other mudguard offers more protection
MATERIAL We decided to make our mudguard material slightly thicker than some offerings which together with our unique polypropylene mix gives great flexibility, durability and strength
ZIP TIES 6 zip ties are provided with each mudguard, the holes on the side arms are mandatory requiring 4 leaving the other 2 for the fork brace (although more could be added if desired)
