The pros of this product are that it is easily attached/detached so if I am commuting I can quickly put it in place and when I am going for a trail ride I can quickly and painlessly remove it in seconds. It is also durable and does not seem like it would easily brake if it is leaned on or if the bike is crashed.
The biggest con to this is that the mechanism that allows this fender to be adjustable up and down slips. One would have to tighten the bolt rediculously tight (on the verge of breaking or stripping something) to keep it from moving downward everytime there is even the slightest bump in the road.
To fix the above issue I inserted two thin star type lock washers between the pieces (one on each side) and then reinserted the bolt and then set the positon and tightened the bolt...this has worked well and I have not had any issues since.
Other manufactures have taken care of this issue by serating the faces of the parts that are bolted together...SKS has not adopted this and it really comes across as a design flaw though it is easily overcome.
The strap/clamp mechanism works good and has been going strong for over 2 years of regular use...but I think the rest of the fender will outlive the nylon strap with its integrated rubber treads, it will be interesting to see if SKS will offer a replacement strap if contacted when this happens.
So far I have been satisfied with this product and would recommend it to folks looking for a fender solution for a full suspension bike.
