Designed and made in the UK from 100% recycled black polypropylene.

We're stoked to say that the FRX is now available on the Mudhugger website. Making the fitting of the MAX extender (sold separately) even easier.

The 3 holes used to attach the extender are now pre formed (although skinned over so if you don't need them they are invisible from the outside) just pop through with a small screw driver (4mm diameter or less) or similar and you're ready to go.

The FRX (Front Race) was designed with the help of World Cup and Enduro World Series riders wanting max mud and spray protection with zero faff. Weighing in at only 80g but measuring 450mm in length the FRX provides awesome mud/spray stopping performance without breaking the bank.

You will see (if you look closely enough, they are very stealthy once fitted) FRX Huggers in use at many Downhill and Enduro races around the world most weekends. From the likes of tomorrow’s champs in the Rippers category to 5 times World Champion Loic Bruni, along with team mate Finn Iles, who choose to run the FRX when the conditions require maximum mud protection. 

With various holes for fitting to different fork braces the FRX Hugger is suitable for all wheel sizes, 26er, 650B and 29er wheel. It also works on Plus wheels with tyres up to 3 inches wide in a ‘Boost’ fork. For the ultimate protection on your bike add a front Hugger MAX extension.

We are often asked if the Huggers can be fitted to Manitou forks with the reverse fork brace. The answer is yes! By ignoring the reverse fork brace altogether and using extra zip ties on the fork legs the Hugger performs just as well as on any other fork.

General rule is that if you can get your index finger between the fork brace and top of the tyre there is enough clearance to fit to your bike. If you wish to purchase a coloured decal for your FRX they can be found on their own page.


See Video for how to fit your FRX Hugger

We recommend you check fork crown/brace clearance at full compression prior to installing. Some fork designs the crown can pass the fork brace at full compression which could cause the mudguard to break.

How Tough is a Mudhugger

When we designed the Mudhugger mudguards we wanted a simple, no fuss product that not only looks good, but works and can withstand the rough and tumble of your mountain biking adventures.

Want a mini rear Hugger like Sam Hill? (to protect bike, not rider)

Sam has run an FRX Hugger with the nose cut off (can be cut down with kitchen scissors) and then ziptied to the seat stays and brace. SIMPLE :)

(We strongly recommend using helitape or similar to protect the paint on the seat stays and brace, the FRX doesn't come with tape, but packs are available from us)
