There’s a time and a place to get wet and muddy. More often than not, it’s not on your daily commute, or club-ride. Enter the Speedrocker by SKS.
Before we get excited, it’s noteworthy that we’ve not always found the renowned mudguard maker to get it right. The Race Blade Long Mk1 seriously needed the safety updates of the Mk2.

Moving on from the Race Blade, it appears the Speedrocker is a solid piece of kit: The inclusion of additonal contact points for increased stability, clearance for fat-tyres and coverage that looks satisfactory – the rear guard could do with some extra length to avoid splashes.
You don’t have to ride cyclo-cross to appreciate a sturdy mudguard. It may not be perfect for roadsters, but for those on discs mixing it up on trails and tarmac, you’re good to go.
Watch this space – we’ll be doing a review soon.
