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

The ProGuard - REAR mudguard is designed to help protect your shock, linkages and bearings from getting hammered at high velocity from your back wheel.

  • 43 snap-off top holes to fit straight braces between the seatstays, raised braces, or dropped braces including those with supporting struts

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

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)

Our ProGuard Rear - Cable Tie is designed, manufactured, and packed in the United Kingdom

Fitting the ProGuard Rear - Cable Tie




Rear mudguard

Image showing rear mudguard fitted
  1. Slide the guard into position WITH THE WHEEL IN PLACE, you may need to squeeze the sides of the guard as you do so to get it through the sear stays

  2. Hold the guard in position making sure it tracks the tyre (equal gap both ends)

  3. You can now see which holes you will need for the most secure fit to the rear

    Important - If you have a brace between the seatstays - you must attach at least one zip tie to it if you don't have a brace between the seatstays - you must use 3 zip ties on each arm

  4. Remove guard and push out/snap-off any holes needed by putting the fornt of the guard onto the workbench, and using a thin sharp flathead screwdriver to push out the snap-off holes

    Important - The snap-off hole will break off fast so ensure thre is nothing underneath the guard that the screw driver can hit, failure to do so may lead to damage or harm

  5. Then feed zip ties through teh sames holes from the rear to the front (you must use min 5 zip ties to ensure the guard is secure)

  6. Add clear tape to all areas the guard contacts to frame to reduce scratches

  7. Pull up zip ties LIGHTLY to check alignment ensuring the head of the zip tie is at the botom/underneath the swingarm so it doesn't catch your legs whilst pedalling

  8. Once aligned USE PLIERS TO PULL UP VERY TIGHT, cut off excess zip ties

  9. Before use, ensure the guard doesn't hit the frame when bottoming the fork
