    The 'chromoplastic' construction means that these Soma Rain Dog fenders are crafted from a thin piece of aluminum foil which is then encased in a fairly hard yet still flexible plastic shell. The end result? A fender that is hard wearing and very resistant to cracking and gives the impression of a steel fender without the downside of steel, specifically its heavier weight and vulnerability to denting. These are well-made fenders, very durable and they look great.

    The Rain Dog fenders feature a deep mudflap that goes low enough to keep water spray to a minimum. And this is an important point, since some fenders in fact don't really hang down far enough, causing people to do things like improvising fixes using soda bottles attached to the bottom of the fender and whatnot to keep the spray down.

    The stainless steel stays are smartly designed and offer great flexibility in mounting. Sometimes fender mounting hardware is decidedly unfriendly to set and adjust, more difficult to solve than the Rubik's Cube. The Rain Dog fenders have a simple design that makes it easy to set them in place and adjust as needed, both in the initial mounting and when adjustments are needed down the road.....

    Summary: Soma Fabrication's Rain Dog fenders are a no-brainer choice for durable, rugged and affordable bike fenders. You'll be pleased with the way they look, and the 37 and 45mm widths come in multiple colors, including blue, red and green. $45.99 online or with specific pricing at your local bike shop.
