Whatcha run? I’m looking for full coverage but also gravel and green singletrack worthy. Tires up to 26x2.3 max.
I wholeheartedly second this. I picked up a stick riding with lights and got slammed on my head so fast I'm surprised I'm not paralyzed. Those were aluminum fenders. They bent in the process but bent back just fine. I ordered safety tabs the next day.I've used aluminum and plastic (polycarbonate SKS fenders). With either, make sure you have release tabs for the front wheel, as riding on a trail, you'll eventually pick up something that lodges itself under the fender. Either the fender detaches, crumples, or the wheel suddenly stops. The first is irritating, the second is a large buzz-kill, and the third is--obviously--bad.
