The name says it all - SKS Race Blade Long Mudguards protect you, whether you're riding your bike in warm summer rain or on solitary winter training rides. Easily removed, easily fitted and long enough to keep you dry, the extra-long Race Blade Long will protect you at short notice.
The end of each guard extends to below the hub axle ensuring that you, and also the cyclist behind you, are spared from splashing. They can easily be mounted on almost any road bike and perfectly adapted to the radius of the wheel by adjusting the length of the stays.
The clip connections ensure that the guards can be removed very quickly from the bike when not needed, leaving only the metal mounting brackets. Remounting is just as easy, the whole process can be done in a matter of seconds.

Quick delivery, easy to fit and give more room than Cruz blades. Only been out once but happy so far.
Bought for my winter bike which I also commute on. Bit fiddly to fit as the instructions are naff, but once on they're really good. Much more secure than my old crud road racers, and the quick release function is good for when it's not wet so you leave the brackets in place. Very tight with 25mm tyres with a tiny bit of rubbing on the guard which sticks forward of the front brake, but you don't really need that piece anyway. All in all the best for tight clearances and sturdiness.
To install them it's a time taking for a 'not so handy' man like me, but manageable to my road bike. I have tested them in heavy rain, and I only got wet by rain directly, not by splashes from tires. I recommend them and they feel like a long-lasting product.
Easy to fit to frame without mudguard eyes giving excellent protection for bike clothing and other riders. Two long damp/wet rides with no issues. Recommended for those riders who want to ride a race bike in all weather.
Raceblades mudguards were ordered and delivered in 2 days, easy to fit, look good and work well. Great Stuff.
Good mudguard. Have a little patience when mounting them. Easier mounting would give 5 stars
The best mudguards on the market for bikes with little clearance. Great protection in all conditions. I've tried all the others and they don't compare.
An extended version of SKSâ€™s popular Raceblades, these 475g full-coverage chromoplastic guards have rigid steel stays with ingenious clips that let you tweak their position once they're fixed to the bike.
They come with Ikea-style instructions and are easy to fit, though not as simple as the short version. They clip into steel brackets that attach to your wheel quick-release skewers and brake callipers. The brackets keep tyre clearance requirement to a minimum â€“ you've got a good chance of getting 25mm rubber in.
The Raceblade Longs keep your bum and feet dry, and the extra rear extension will make you popular on group rides. Taking them off for a sunny ride or bike cleaning is easy as they just unclip from their brackets.
The left-behind brackets in the quick releases look a bit odd though, and unlike regular Raceblades, fixing a puncture is a bit fiddly as you have to locate the brackets in your quick-release when you replace the wheel.
The Raceblades' design means they donâ€™t keep spray out of your brakes. Weâ€™d also worry about the edges of the steel brackets digging into carbon forks â€“ a bit of bending or lining with rubber might be a good idea.
SKS have responded to our review by revising the Raceblade Longs' steel brackets â€“ they're now angled rather than straight to avoid frame/fork clashes.
