Presenting DINK & DONK!
We worked with mudguard specialists RideGuard to create our bespoke, easy-to-fit Black Mountain mudguards.
RideGuard produce everything here in the UK from 100% recycled plastic waste and DINK & DONK are also 100% recyclable. So, their production and lifespan have the smallest possible impact on the planet.
We don’t like old-school full-wheel guards which are heavy, tricky to fit and rattle all over the place – they’re also overkill for most conditions. Instead DINK is inspired by the front guards used by downhill racers and DONK mimics the saddle-mounted rear ‘bottom-savers’ found in the road-racing world. The result is a super lightweight, rattle-free and impact resistant pair of guards – colour matched to your Black Mountain bike.
DINK & DONK are designed to intercept the worst of the mud and water splatter from the front and rear wheels keeping dirt off the rider’s back and face when venturing off-road or taking on puddles. They'll help keep the uniform dry on a damp school run and will save a wet bottom, but as these are partial coverage guards, if your little one is hammering back and forth through the puddles for fun (and there’s nothing wrong with that!) then just be aware they won’t be able to keep your rider 100% clean & dry.
Unlike conventional ‘whole wheel’ mudguards that require fiddly fitting and typically end up rubbing on the tyres, DINK & DONK take only a minute to fit and, once attached, they stay firmly in place.
The front mudguard, DINK, wraps under the fork arch and is held in place with 4 cable ties (supplied). The rear, DONK, slips under the saddle hooking on to the saddle rails and is fixed in place with 2 cable ties (supplied).
