If you plan on using these guards in the front just buy the rear version, the front version simple doesn't protect the hub very well at all.

As long as it clears the forks I'm sure that's what most will do now lol

The front version is exactly what a Gland is supposed to do. They were never meant to protect the collar, just the hub shell and spokes.

So it´s basically a new version of their g-land guard, but once again... it´s a spoke guard...

Also by a general way, I don't see the point of full plastic guards, or steel + sleeve; why not simply buy full steel guards and being good for years of grinding !? (instead of only a few months for plastic i guess)
I can understand people who run plastic pegs to slide better, but guards... that´s dumb !!
What´s your point on these plastics guards, does some people really like them ?

Plastics that rotate can last a LONG time. A buddy of mine does nearly nothing but grinds, and his ORIGINAL glands are still going strong. He used some heavy cord to tie them on instead of the lace or zip ties.

Glands are designed to protect spokes not the full hub. The new ones look good with the small design

Yo is this the colony wasp hubs? Because I was wondering if the GSport gland mark 4 fits the colony wasp front and rear hubs on the pintour wheel. Thanks
