Initially designed to overcome the problem of fitting mudguards to a bike with a dropper seat post the Rear Mudhugger works well on all bikes, providing they have disc brakes. However, attaching the Mudhugger rear fender to the seat stays also overcomes all of the problems normally associated with rear mudguards. They do not move out of line, get in the way getting on or off the bike, do not foul rear suspension travel, and are robust enough to take the rough and tumble of modern trail riding demands.
Developed during the wettest summer on record the Huggers have been praised by many of the major bike magazines for their simplicity and effectiveness in back to back tests with other mudguards. Maybe the Rear Fender would not win any beauty competitions, but once fitted to your bike you will hardly notice it is there, and staying dryer and cleaner for longer means you can stay out on your bike for longer. For those of you into your DH, enduro or endurance racing, being able to get out in all weather conditions, train hard and remain comfortable for much longer will undoubtedly pay dividends at the start of the race season.
With various holes for fitting the Rear Hugger's long version is suitable for 650B and 29" wheel size. Cannot be fitted to bikes with cantilever style rim brakes. With some modifications the 29er fender also works on fatbikes:
