Riders that prefer fenders are definitely going to want to check out Trynty fenders, especially the Trynyty JDM fender. All of Trynyty's fenders are high quality but feature a unique design with a long slot, rather than bolt holes, so they fit most decks. The JDM fender is super wide, ensuring that your foot never hits the rear wheel during manuals or fakies. There were scooter brakes and then there were fenders. So, which should you buy? Easy, if you want to be able to stop, pick up a brake, which you can actually press down on with your rear foot to stop your whip. If you don't want that rear brake to inadvertently stop your wheel when your foot hits it on a big landing, you want a fender. Please note that a fender does not function as a brake and will not stop you. In other words, you're going to wear out a lot of shoes. The JDM fender is a aluminum fender that works with the following wheel diameters: 100mm,110mm,115mm,120mm and the following wheel widths: 24mm,26mm,28mm,30mm. Should you purchase metal or plastic brakes? It depends. If you are looking for the lightest possible setup - go nylon or plastic. If you want a durable brake that's going to last a long time, pick up a steel brake.
