    Comments about SKS P45 Chromoplastic Longboard Fender Set:

    SKS have good classic mounting mechanisms that can be finely adjusted using quality eyebolts. This makes for a much more durable mounting than the newer plastic clips. The chromoplastic material provides some flex for fitting to frames that did not design carefully for fenders (few frames are designed optimally for fenders.)

    The Longboard models (as well as most SKS fenders) have four stays on the front and back which is quite important, especially on the rear. In my experience, plastic fenders with just two stays supporting the large arc of the rear will crack after just one year of consistent cycling on imperfect roads.

    The Longboard have huge coverage and will do a great job keeping you and your followers dry. The front fender is a little crazy though since the mudflap reaches to only a couple inches off the pavement. We are encountering flooding in my city and on those occasions where I need to cross a short flooded section, the mudflap will dig into the water causing more splashing. In addition, the mudflap will bottom when I go over a speedbump. I will be removing the mudflap and replacing it with a shorter version.

    Be forewarned: installing fenders well is not a trivial process. I spent about two hours installing the rear, and only a bit less than that for the front. Granted, this was a very detailed and careful installation, including drilling the frame and application of polyurethane tape to prevent scratches, but you should plan patience and time when installing any fenders.

    Not compatible with disc brakes

      Comments about SKS P45 Chromoplastic Longboard Fender Set:

      These fenders are a pain to install. Additionally, they are not disc brake compatible, at least not on my bike with mechanical disc brakes. They do look nice though, but I would still urge others to purchase a different product due to missing hardware and the difficulty to install on a
      disc brake bike. The time required to do the modifications to make these work are too much.

        I purchased these from another vendor as I converted my CX bike to a daily commuter; wanting to keep road salt off my components, and skunk stripes off of my back.

        Take your time with installation, and look online for others' mounting videos - while it's not necessarily intuitive, the mounting hardware is well-designed and manufactured.

        There are no lock washers on these small unusual components; I would suggest investing in a small tube of blue threadlocker if you don't keep it around already - the frame mounts use nylock nuts, but the rest of the small fasteners do not.

        Comments about SKS P45 Chromoplastic Longboard Fender Set:

        I got these for a gravel bike. Was getting a lot of stones thrown up and figured these would help.

        Thoughts:
        -Installation is not a quick task. I'm sure after you've installed many of them the install goes quickly, but for the first set...its a pain in the butt.

        -These would be great for a commuter bike to cover dirt, debris, puddles and some rain.

        -These vibrate/shake/rattle and make a ton of noise on bumpy/gravel roads. Its really annoying. This is the main reason, I'm taking them off.

        -The detachment system for the front wheel works very well. Within 2 miles of the maiden voyage, i hit a stick and it got caught up in the fender. Before i even knew it the fender detached and prevented a nasty spill.

        -Construction is solid enough for paved roads and hard packed cinder/dirt roads. Not sturdy enough for gravel roads or bumpy trails.

        -The coverage is huge. these are so long that I needed to removed the mud flaps in order to ride trails/gravel. The coverage would be great for smooth roads.

        Verdict: best use = commuting or road riding. do not use for rough roads.
