When your commute, trail ride, or long distance road ride calls for you to conquer the elements as well as the miles ahead, a fender can completely change your life. Spray from your tires is no longer a constant reminder of your ride hours after you get out of the saddle. And the wet road or trail does not improve when the rain stops. Don’t get stuck with the dirt trail all the way up your back, or soaked pants or cycling shorts. Lightweight clip-on plastic fenders, or full coverage aluminum, options abound for keeping you as dry as possible.
