"First impressions are good and are in line with the other reviews. With regard to fitting I think it is all down to technique. First one was a bit of a struggle but still managed to fit without levers. On the second one I did not put as much air in the tube and kept working around the tyre to keep the beads off the rim. Eventually they just eased on. Were very slippy at first but I put this down to the coating they receive during manufacturing"
Pros: Durable
Cons: can be hard to fit

"If it's compact you are after then this is the one. High quality and wasy to use. Just watch that the pump end shoots out when you connect it to an already pressurised tyre/tube"
Pros: Attractive, High Quality

"I have to agree with a lot of the other reviewers when it comes to fitting the guards. The instructions are rubbish and to get a good fit you need to take your time and make some fiddly adjustments. However the end result is very good, no rattles, very well fixed and quality materials. You will not be disappointed with your purchase. Once fitted they can be easily removed and refitted with the minimum of effort. A good pair of bolt cutters is usefull for trimming the stays insitu."
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Rugged
Cons: needs some time/patiemce to fit properly

"Bit sceptical about these at first but have recently completed the c2c and were impressed with the erformance. Ok, on the odd really muddy sections they lost a bit of grip but this was more than made up for on the roads/lanes with low rolling resistance. also no punctures."
Pros: High Quality
