Best fenders for a Kilo WT

I want to get some full length fenders for my Kilo WT. I'm not interested in down tube or seatpost mounted "blades", I want real fenders. I'm using the stock 32MM tires. Which fenders have people had luck with? I know toe overlap is going to be an issue and would prefer to use as narrow a front fender as possible while maintaining coverage.

I use these >>> https://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...82&category=78

There is minimal toe overlap with a 32mm tire in the front and I have a 35mm tire in the rear.

Perfect. Eligible for Prime on Amazon. Ordered them.

I really like Planet Bike's Cascadia fenders. I use them with 27 x 1-1/4" and 700c x 32 mm tires on vintage bicycles, both sets that I picked up locally a long time ago.

Mounted the SKS Chromo Plastic fenders. Three are really solid, nicely made and work well. I left the rear stays a little long to leave a gap and allow me to get the wheel out without fussing around. Aesthetics of the uneven gap around the rear wheel bother me, though. Is there a better solution?

They look great. What's the brand and model of those? Sorry, I'm a little late for the party and the link is no longer available

They are SKS model P50 (50mm wide), but this size is no longer available. You can, however, buy either the 45mm https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...57&category=78 or 55mm https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...58&category=78 , depending on your tire width. In my case with 700x32c front and 700x35c rear tires, I would buy the 45mm model.
