Bike mudguards are designed to protect you from the hazards of wet weather. Road mudguards provide a shield against water that shoots up from your wheels when you ride. MTB mudguards protect you from the mud on the trail as this can obscure your vision and add weight to your bike.
Mudguards make cycling in bad weather a much more pleasant experience. Having mudguards fitted to your bike will provide you with greater visibility as your vision will not be obscured by water vapour .They are easy to attach and remove from your frame so can be used when required...
For road riding a front and rear set may be best. For MTB you may opt for a front, rear and down tube mudguard. You can also buy a mudguard to attach to your suspension fork to prevent mud shooting up between the brace and crown of your fork.
