What fenders for a Crosstrail Sport disc?

...ok, we've decided that we're going to try and ride as often as possible regardless of the fall and winter weather offerings. We'll head out on sunny days but the weather can change quickly here so we'll need fenders for such times. No shops around here have sets that will accommodate my front shocks, I know they exist as there's lots of examples online, so I need some recommendations from any of you who have mounted fenders on their Crosstrails...

No actual hands on experience but...

These are the ones that I have been eyeing:

SKS P50 Chromoplastic Longboard Bicycle Fenders - 700 x 38-45

Amazon.com : SKS P50 Black Chromoplastic Longboard, Bicycle Fenderset (Tires Sized 700 x 38-45) : Bike Fenders : Sports & Outdoors



I have a 2014 Crosstrail Sport Disc. The LBS swears by SKS fenders.

I have a Vita Sport Disc and run Planet Bike Cascadias. They look pretty much identical to the SKS Longboards that Ridenotrun posted, i.e. have mudflaps and similar mounting.

They mount nicely on the same eyelets as my Topeak disc-compatible rack, if that interests you as well.

Amazon.com : SKS Shockboard Front Bicycle Fender (Black) : Bike Fenders : Sports & Outdoors

I have used these for years.....best you can get......can be installed in seconds...and removed just as fast......front and rear...the front mounts on an insert that fits into the top tube of the shock....the rear straps on with a flick of the wrist!!

This bike?

From the pic,your rear caliper is mounted on the chainstay,so whatever fenders fit around your tires and inside your frame/fork will work. Up front,it looks like the fork has lower fender mounts. Hydros tuck in further than mechs,so you might have to bend the left hand strut a touch,or it might go straight on. For the top mount,there should be a threaded hole in the bridge between the fork legs;you'll need a shorter screw than the ones that come with the fenders.
