If you're going to be trail riding in the mud, a fixed fender can clog and leave you stranded. That's the #1 reason I use these fenders from FF. However, I've had two of these snap on me over the years. One from a 16mph nosedive on asphalt (error 16) and the other from a mild board rollover. Hopefully this new version will be better at taking some abuse. Other than that, these have been great!
Haven’t used it yet but seems identical quality to the other ff fenders I have. Great product, no regrets
My FlightFins have saved me more times than I can count! Best way to describe this would be to explain if you hit a bump that you weren’t prepared for the fins keep you from popping off the board.
Flight shield is one of the best products you can get if you love riding with fins. It's a great product if it's a nice day out and you wanna show your tire off you can easily take it off within 3 seconds. But if your like me and ride all the time your gonna want that flightshield for those bad weather days. It's also such a nice design even halfway through your ride if you decide you don't want or need it on you can easily put it in your backpack without loosing room in your bag
Very easy to add to your fin setup. You just bend the plastic into place. It’s as easy as that.
The product eventually snapped from pulling the shield on and off — I’d recommend just leaving it on to maintain product longevity. Always expected a roll to break it 🥲
