Price: €23.90/€29.90 (Standard/Custom) | Weight: 52g | Length: 350mm | Manufacturer’s website

Slicy is a French company specializing in customizable frame, fork and crank guards. But her portfolio doesn’t end there. The French Alps company also offers mudguards and several other products, all of which are customizable. With the user-friendly configurator there are no limits and you can let your imagination run wild: various design elements, text fields with customizable fonts and your own images can be printed on the fender. Slicy doesn’t rely on hard plastic, but instead chooses a flexible material, like Riesel Design. This is also reflected in the weight, which weighs just 52 g. And this despite being 350 mm long, on par with the heavier Mudguard from FOX. However, with this length, problems can arise with some modern chairlifts where the front wheel is hooked into a holder. To give the mudguard the necessary stability and strength, it uses strategically placed bends. If you choose one of the standard designs, the mudguard costs €23.90, for an individual mudguard you can pay €29.90.

Suitable for the Slicy Enduro/DH Long mudguard

The Slicy Enduro/DH Long mudguard uses the traditional four cable tie attachment method. Two of the included cable ties are guided around the fork bridge, one each around a lowering. The initial installation requires a little more time and effort as you have to fold it first. To do this, bend the mudguard along the indicated lines and hold it there until it retains the desired shape. However, assembly only takes a few minutes and the mudguard is compatible with almost all forks. Unfortunately, like all mudguards that rely on cable ties, it rubs against the fork legs and leaves unsightly scratches.

The mudguard must be pre-folded for additional stability.
With the online configurator you can let your imagination run wild.

The Slicy Enduro/DH Long mudguard on the trail

Once the mudguard is properly folded and attached to the bike, you can enjoy the trails in peace. The mudguard offers a decent level of protection and provides a slightly clearer view when it gets wet, similar to the Riesel Design kol:oss and the RockShox Fender. The FOX Mudguard of the same length performs slightly better than the Slicy Enduro/DH Long due to its greater width. The Slicy protects your fork seals well from dirt. Unfortunately, no protective tape or padding for your fork is included, which leads to unsightly scratches on the base over time. To prevent this, it’s worth using a piece of helicopter tape or your own padding.

Our conclusion about the Slicy Enduro/DH Long mudguard

With the Slicy Enduro/DH Long mudguard you can let your imagination run wild and come up with a unique design. The configurator is clear and easy to use. Installation takes a little longer than other cable tie mudguards and the Slicy is not suitable for frequent mounting and dismounting. Additionally, due to its considerable length, the Slicy mudguard is not compatible with modern bike park chairlifts. Unfortunately, it also offers less protection than other, comparatively long mudguards.
