SKS Longboard Fender Now Available

The NEW Longboard Fender from SKS offers the best coverage on the planet

The Longboard is available in 45mm profile to fit 700 x 28-37 wheels. The fender features a longer fender profile and 6” mudflap extension on both the front and rear to provide the maximum spray coverage possible.

While most fenders offer coverage to keep the spray off of your face and shirt, the Longboard is designed to keep your feet dry and the crank arm, bottom bracket and chainrings clean.

The Longboard has also been dramatically extended in the rear. No more taped on water bottles!!

The Longboard Fender is tricked out with a front edge protector and comes with weather resistant stainless hardware and super secure 3.4mm stays.

The new fender is available in black, silver (MSRP $49.99 ) and beige ($44.99).

According to Rivendell Bicycle’s Grant Petersen, “These will blow all other fenders away, and this Longboard design should stand for a century, or until bike wheels go square.”

Leonard Basobas - Among my many and varied interests are cycling and writing. I am deeply passionate about both. Strangely enough, neither has come very easy to me.I had such a horrible crash as a small child that I did not attempt to ride again until the 6th grade. From that point forward, you could say that I have had a love affair with two-wheels. When I was not out on my bike, I could be found tearing apart or putting back together other bikes. The frames and parts found in my parents’ basement today are a testament to that fact. Around the same time that I began riding again, a young rider named Greg Lemond had just won the U23 World Championships. Following his career was my entry point into the sport of cycling, but I never participated in organized racing until I was past my cycling prime. Today, a healthy curiosity about racing has me lining up on the road and in the nearest velodrome.In regard to writing, I am not a trained journalist. My writing, instead, strikes a creative bent in the form of short stories, at least when I not writing for my day job in clinical research. Although I have yet to be published for my creative writing, I have authored several abstracts and papers, and been published as the lead author for a paper in a well-known peer reviewed medical journal.I have covered the sport of cycling, as both writer and photographer, at such races as the Amgen Tour of California (2008 to 2014) and the US Pro Cycling Challenge. I was also the featured Guest Contributor for, commentating and moderating the site's live blogging feed during the 2009 Tour de France.
