Triumph Bobber Fenders
Have you ever wondered what the official name is for that part of the bike that frames the wheel wells? Well, luckily we have the answers for you. They are known as fenders. These handy contraptions are usually made of rather rough materials and, in fact, can be easily damaged if they come into contact with the road itself. In fact, the term "fender-bender" in American slang is used to describe a minor traffic accident for that very reason, because if anything is going to be damaged by a minor bump, it's fenders.
What are Triumph Bobber fenders for?
Well, technically speaking, the Triumph Bobber fenders are designed to protect bystanders and other road users as opposed to you, the rider. If a small, loose object becomes embedded in the grooves of your tyre, it could be thrown into the air, causing damage to other vehicles or people in the surrounding area. Fenders prevent this from happening by covering the top area of the tyre and therefore prevent these small but potentially lethal objects from being thrown into the air.
Is there an advantage for Triumph Bobber riders?
Now, while we're sure you're concerned about the safety of others, we understand that having to invest in this type of so-called accessory may put a strain on your savings. However, what if we told you that there are benefits for you too? Triumph Bobber fenders are also known as mudguards, which means that they protect the rider's clothing from any mud or other debris that may be thrown up by the wheels. This means you can ride around in your most expensive clothes with peace of mind.
What are my options?
As many riders will know, tradition dictates that the Triumph Bobber rear fender should be significantly shorter than the front. But there's no need to stick to these rules if you don't want to. There are plenty of options available for Triumph Bobber riders who want to take the road less travelled and give their bike a unique look. You have rear Triumph Bobber fenders that sit much closer to the tyre and can be attached to the rear swingarm to give your bike a sporty look. Also, mudguards often come in different finishes and are compatible with various models, so you can choose the one that best suits the design you have in mind. We realise that not all of our customers will appreciate the relative advantages and disadvantages of each of the mudguards we have available. For this reason, we recommend sitting down with a member of the Tamarit Motorcycles team to discuss your needs and the type of look you want to go for before making your final purchase. In this regard, all of our mudguards can be easily fitted by customers themselves as they have the same anchor points as the default parts, so they do not involve any extra labour costs.
