As the gravel segment expands, cyclists face new challenges. The issue of having dirt thrown in your face is a well known problem among mountain bikers. With huge clearances for wide tires in the front fork, gravel riders are now facing a similar issue.
While mountain bikers are used to mud, gravel bikers face a different challenge. Anyone who has ridden on a wet gravel road is familiar with the mixture of fine sand and water that seems to be designed especially to seek and destroy bearings, not to mention what it does to your eyes on a long ride.
The MUDDER Mini is here to offer relief for your face and headset bearing. Simply mount it to your fork legs just above your front tire and you will dramatically reduce the amount of spray in the critical areas. The MUDDER Mini attaches with innovative adjustable anti-slip straps to guarantee an instant and perfect fit on all fork sizes.
Measures: 90 x170 mm (effective)
Weight: 21 g
Material: 0.8 mm PP (Polypropylene)
Fit: The MUDDER Mini will fit all gravel/cx forks with clearance for tire widths between 32 mm up to 55 mm. It will not work on a road fork with narrow clearance or for fat bikes. The correct position is about 10 mm above the tire. Aligning the position to the tire and not the fork crown increases efficiency and is made possible by our custom hook and loop straps. Make sure that the mudguard doesn't touch your down tube when turning the handlebar.
Purpose: This mudguard is specifically designed to block dirt from being thrown forward and potentially impair your vision during high speed riding and the wellness of your lower headset bearings. It will not protect you from general spray coming from your front tire or your feet and lower legs.
Adjustable anti-slip 2-in-1 hook and loop straps: The specially designed straps have enough friction to prevent the mudguard from sliding down on a conic fork leg. However, it needs to be tighten firmly to stay up. The open ended design of the strap will allow you to adjust the length and thereby center the position of the ASS SAVERS logo on the fork leg. You can also inverse the strap if you prefer to have a no-logo appearance.
Pre-folding: The secret to transforming a flat piece of plastic into a functioning product lies in the pre-folding prior to use. All the scoring lines have been carefully engineered to achieve locking mechanisms, self centering abilities, spring loading and material endurance. Please take the time to properly read the instructions to ensure the best performance.
