Barkbusters Carbon[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I saw them on Mr Bob's bike.
I also liked the look and thought that they might help with deflecting cold air during our winter.
The Carbons (and their mounting brackets bought separately) were very expensive, so I originally got the cheap plastic guards that came with mounts included (https://barkbusters.net/products/vps/3472-vps-007/)
The mounts take a bit of work reducing the thickness so that they fit between the reservoirs and the bars.
(You can also put washers in the reservoir mounts to space them out a bit further, but that will move the levers out also).
Even though the plastic & carbon ones look very similar, it turns out the plastic ones mount in a different and less effective position to the carbon ones.
Luckily, my neighbour started working at a local bike shop and was able to sell me the carbon ones at a greatly reduced price.
Note that in these photos are the mounts that came with the plastic set, not the correct recommended set which are wider & sturdier.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
