Show your fellow riders you care; fit the best coverage mudguards you can get for your racing or winter bike
Extra length and larger spoilers mean almost zero wheel spray to help maintain group-ride harmony
Designed specifically for road race bikes without standard mudguard clearance
Mudguards can be removed and fitted in minutes, leaving only a minimal fixing bracket under the brake callipers
Ultra tough CAB plastic blade is stiff and light, more resistant to UV damage than standard plastics, and carries an aluminium foil strip sandwiched between the layers of plastic to improve rigidity and lifespan
The adjustable brackets use 3.4 mm stainless steel stays to provide extra stiffness, and the length is adjustable to help offer the perfect fit
Race Blade Longs are available in black or silver and fit 18-23 mm tyres

Did much research before purchasing these and it paid off. Fitted much more easily than I expected before heading out for group cycle. I was dry and so was the person behind me which was actually the main reason for the purchase. Didn`t fit the rubber end sections to keep the bulk down but they worked fine without these. Afterwards I whipped them off in seconds and popped the bike back on the turbo. These are great mudguards which is more than can be said for some others in the group who were stopping to make adjustments because of continual snagging and rubbing. I felt quite smug with my new purchase!!
Easy to fit and so far so good, much more robust than the Crudracers I've been using for the last couple of years!
I am really pleased with these. They were a bit of a fiddle to fit, but they keep me and the bike remarkably free water and road dirt. The quick release system is an absolute doddle to manage. You can remove the RaceBlades in a matter of seconds and replace them just as easily.
I would recommend them to anyone.
Service from Merlin Cycles outstanding; received item very quickly.
Delighted with the mudguards. Bought them to go on my new carbon bike and wanted it to look as good as possible. Have used other types in past on other bikes and these are definitely the best. They look sleek, seem lightweight. Done a couple of 60 milers and no problems, no rattling and best of all kept myself and anyone riding behind me dry.
Would definitely recommend!
Been using cruds for a years but they eventually disintegrated from daily commuting. Moved up to these - easy to fit, like the quick release meachanism and feel more like a quaity product - OK so they are a bit heavier but in the grand scheme of things does not matter.
Fitted them in 30 minutes.
These are my second pair of sks Raceblade's, I have donated my old pair to my wife. I wanted more coverage for myself and my fellow club riders, these do just the trick.
Not only more coverage but so much more sturdy and removable if the winter weather suddenly takes a turn for the better.
Solid when fitted properly (which only took 15mins).
Very impressed, these are the only mud guards I would use and recommend to friends, I cannot recommend them enough!!!
Get a pair!!!
Great Job keep me nice and clean and dry now. easy to fit and remove. I would rate them highly
The SKS Raceblades arrived promptly and the quality and finish of the product looks very good .Unfortunately as they were bought as a present for Christmas they have yet to be fitted and tried on the Bike.Other club members have used these guards and praise their ease of fitting over similar products and it was on this recommendation that I purchased the Raceblades.I will write a full reveiw when I get them back off "Santa."
Very well made. Great improvement over the Race Guards I have on my other bike. Better coverage and easier to fit in a hurry. Far superior to the Crud Guards I also have which are just too dam fiddley and always rub on the tyres. 5 stars to SKS.
Good product. Prompt delivery. Great price. Excellent value.
I would certainly look to Merlin for future cycling items.
These guards are very easy to fit and very effective at keeping the worst of the grime off you and your bike. They are however very fiddly to keep in precisely the correct spot as otherwise they rub on your tyre. When setup correctly they are fine. They also require very little clearance between frame and tyre
Easy to fit and do the job well. Suitable for close clearance bikes.
Mudguards are good quality, easy to fit and offer great protection . Merlin service, price and delivery were all fantastic as usual. Thanks
Mudguards for a road bike don't get any better. Easy to fit and very quick to remove. Best that I've seen.
All my mates who have seen these mudguards are converted - a must for the serious rider putting in big miles on UK roads!
