The FR (Front Race) was designed with the help of World Cup and Enduro World Series riders during 2014. Weighing in at only 80g but measuring 450mm in length the FR provides awesome mud/spray stopping performance without breaking the bank.
You will see (if you look closely enough, they are very stealthy once fitted) FR 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 2017 World Champion Loic Bruni, along with team mates Finn Iles, 2016 Junior World Champ and Miranda Miller womens 2017 World Champ, who choose to run the FR when the conditions require maximum mud protection.
With various holes for fitting to different fork braces the FR 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 29er add a Front Hugger extension.
We are often asked if the Hugger 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 FR, then plase make sure you buy he unembossed version here and choose your decal seperately.
Fits: 26", 27.5", 27.5+ (Boost)" and 29" wheels.
