Poor air intake location means that water coming over the mudguard goes straight in there. I guess if you go VERY slowly it's less likely.

I've had mine in water at least this deep on a regular basis crossing streams in the Rockies and never had a problem. These photos would be a typical ride around Calgary, AB.
