 Fenders is the term I like. They aren't just for mud. They also prevent small rocks and dirt from getting thrown into your face. Even in completely dry conditions, totally worth it.

 Same here. Keeps the rocks from getting flung up on me. I prefer the bolt one ones. The ones that zip tie to the fork ruins the contact surface over time.

 Am I the only one who thinks a fender keeps my fork seals slightly less dusty?

 Not only you. Some people say that when they started to use VisionVelo fender, they can see a difference in the oil colour during fork maintenance. Positive difference, of course.

 None of this fender nonsense. A proper mud guard on the front all year and a muckynutz extendable on the rear.

 One more day on our Whistler trip and our brand new Fox 40 guard didn’t survive one day of the Fitz chair. Old school zip tie ones do fine. Other than that, it sure is easy to load bikes.

 Trails here are closed when it's muddy. So file treads and no mudguards.
