    After trying the dreadful M-Part mudguards and the better SKS Chromoplastic mudguards, I was very happy to discover the Giant Speedshields, as they are lightweight, easy to fit, and firmly secure on the bike. They are far superior mudguards for a road bike with limited wheel clearance.

    Nicely made and solid feel when mounted. I used these on a Kinesis Gran Fondo and as such they did need modification with a dremel to fit under the front fork. My two comments on general finish would be firstly, the section ahead of the front fork does not quite follow the radius of the wheel and so runs a wider line. Secondly the grub screws locking the stays are stiff and so need care to avoid rounding the hex. But generally these are a fine option for mudguards on a bike with tight clearance, although they are not suitable for all frames without minor modification. They would not fit anything with a deep bladed fork. But they are not sold as such.

    Mudguards which actually fit on a Trek 2.1 (2011) road bike! This bike has ridiculously small clearances for a bike which comes with lugs for guards on the front forks and rear dropouts and from what I can gather searching around has always been tricky to source full fixed guards that fit the frame. Id been using crud road racer 2s for a few years as they were the only thing I could find that fitted the bike when I first got it. But after several breakages, some caused by toe cross others just as a result of fragility of the crud rr 2s Ive looked around for an alternative. Local trek dealer advised crud rr 3s which I duly purchased from them but the changes to the design mean they wont fit the Trek 2.1. So after searching round went for a set of these speedshields. To my great delight they went on with minimum fuss. Few points to note in regard to fitting in my case: 1. As mentioned the tiny grub screws for the stays are very stiff so I screwed them part way into the fittings before placing the fittings on the guards. Also using a decent set new set of workshop quality allen keys which were a snug fit on the screw. 2. The rubber cushion that sits between the seat tube and the rear guard needed trimming slightly to give proper clearance to the rear tyre on my 56cm frame. 3. Im currently running conti gp 4 seasons 23 front and 25 rear on mavic open pros which are a traditional narrow rim, and using ultegra 6800 brakes. Not tried a 25 front to see if it would fit and Im not likely to. Will be re-lacing the wheels soon with dt swiss r460s so it will be interesting to see if the guards are still clear with the tyres on wider rims. 4. As mentioned the tip of the front guard doesnt quite follow the radius of the tyre, careful tweeking sorted it but you might risk cracking the guard at the rivets if you are too heavy handed. Look good when fitted and seem nice and light and should provide good coverage. Not yet tried them on the road but very satisfied so far with fit / finish and how easily they went on considering the clearances available.

  • Will these fit my Giant Defy 1 2016 disc bike ?
    Question asked by Colin on May 15 2017 1:56PM
    These are designed for this bike, so I can't imagine that you will have any issues fitting these.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Will these fit a Giant Rapid 2 2016 please? It doesn't have an eyelet at the bottom of the front fork, but does have one halfway up the fork on the inside. Are these eyelets for mudguards?
    Question asked by Andy on Apr 3 2017 5:55PM
    Hello, these mudguards won't be wide enough I'm afraid. The mount you have described is not for mudguards. I would suggest some strap on mudguards.

  • Will these mudguards fit my Giant Liv Avail 1 Disc 2016
    Question asked by Sharon on Jan 30 2017 2:46PM

  • Will these fit a 2014 Giant Defy 1 size medium - I've struggled to find the right guards due to the clearance at the rear wheel.
    Question asked by Chris on Jan 7 2017 10:16AM
    Hello, compatibility is dependant on clearance. These won't be any better than other mudguards necessarily I'm afraid.

  • Will these fit my Giant Defy Advanced 2 2016 model with disc brakes?
    Question asked by James Tyrrell on Oct 5 2016 11:55AM
    Sadly your bike doesn't have any mounts on it to fit these mudguards to, you would have to get some quick release mudguards and make sure that your frame is protected against these.

  • Will these fit my 2011 Giant Defy 1 with 25mm tyres?
    Question asked by Steve on Aug 3 2016 12:33PM
    These are designed to work with the Defy range so I can't see this being an issue, they will accommodate the 25c tyres but I wouldn't go any wider than that, I would check the clearance on these before riding with the guards on.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Hi, Will these mudguards fit an 2014 XL Giant Defy 4? Kind regards
    Question asked by George on Feb 4 2016 6:35PM
    These should do. Giant did have some issues with getting mudguards to fit the XL frame, but, these are the revised model so it shouldn't be a problem.
