Slender Fender - The Universal Wheelchair Fender
The Slender Fender
is a new, patent-pending system. It is a universally-fitting fender that fits on just about any major commercial wheelchair brand, sitting comfortably in place to either side of a wheelchair seat, resting on vertical posts beside the arm rests.
The Slender Fender helps to deflect dirt and mud from kicking off the wheels onto the person and solves the larger problem of keeping sleeves clean and free from rubbing against the wheels. Plus, as the name implies, the sleek slenderness of the fender allows it to stay in place at all times, not having to remove and re-install it every time the person leaves and re-enters the chair.
Design and Installation
The fender with its vertical slotted post and post clamp receiver has all been specially designed for ease-of-installation onto a variety of wheelchair brands. Plus, you don't need to purchase all the pieces if you don't need to. Some wheelchair systems may already have the clamp or receiver, wherein only the fender itself needs to be purchased. For instance, if you already have a pair of flat mudguards, you can remove them and installed the Slender Fender directly on the remaining vertical post.
The fender consists of a top and bottom radius, with the top radius accommodating 20" to 26" wheel diameters and running parallel with the tire's tread. It has a perpendicular lip and is adjustable in both vertical and horizontal planes, assuring you a perfect fit to your wheel.
The Slender Fender has been designed to cover the propulsion wheel tread surface, yet not interfering with the push rim at all, so you can always ride smooth.
