SKS GRAND D.A.D and GRAND M.O.M Fender Review

Gear Pro Reviews

Bottom Line
The GRAND M.O.M is a good wide rear fender, and is meant for uber wide tires, and it’s simple to install, and easy to take on and off. Although it offers great coverage, it tends to flop around on rugged terrain, and the strap system likes to loosen, and requires occasional adjustment of the tightness.

Pros:

  • Good coverage
  • It fits fat and wide tires
  • Easy on and off
  • Simple install
  • Soft and flexible rear section

Cons:

  • Attachment strap would loosen too frequently and require adjustment
  • Attachment strap would stretch in rain storms
  • Floppy on rugged terrain

Overall Rating: 3.5 Flamin’ Chili Peppers

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    “Yevgen Lasman” asked: It used to be Shockblade and X-Blade. Or these are noticeably bigger than previous “versions”?

    These are completely different in construction. The shockblade and X-blade are both still available.
