Mudguards, also known as fenders offer you protection from debris and water that you tyres might pull up from the road. Our mudguards are sized for both 650B and 700C wheels.

Steering Stabiliser

A steering stabiliser creates a resistance in your steering to pull the front wheel to centre whenever possible. Vivente Bikes use an elastomer stabiliser to minimise noise and maintain constant resistance.
