Roto, based in Monterenzio, Italy, has developed a new series of mudguards which will be production ready next January, 2011. The new series is targeted to be used in 26” and 28” trekking bikes.

The innovative shape and the possibility to choose from different types of accessories and patented fastening systems make it possible for bike manufacturers to significantly reduce assembly time. At the same time the new Roto series offers a high technical and esthetic level.

Next to assembly time Roto took also volume transport into account when designing its new mudguard series, in particular with a focus on reducing shipping costs.

For traditional mudguards in extruded material and/or metal, special attention has been devoted to the type of fastening of the mudguard. It resulted in a 35 mm rod integrated in a single piece with the bridge, thereby obtaining an elastic, load-bearing structure. This structure is fastened first on the side of the mudguard and then, with simple manual pressure, it snaps into the proper position.

The same fastening system is offered with a special bridge on an aluminum rack with a load capacity of 8-10 kg assembled using self-tapping screws. The new Roto mudguards are made from plastic and come in many colours. The colouring can be matched to the casings and mud flaps which are also produced by Roto; creating fashionable combinations making city and trekking bikes colourful and unique.
