Designed around the Specialized Turbo Levo for todays slack and long 29ers and 650B bikes.
The LARGE Rear Mudhugger is an all new design for the modern full suspension bikes that have low seat stay angles of 26 deg down to 22 deg. This is an extra long Hugger that is designed to be trimmed down to fit your bike perfectly.
Think Specialized Turbo Levo, Kenevo, most Pivot, Nukeproof bikes, Santa Cruz, Lapierre and Yeti full suss bikes. However, it will work well on bikes with 27-28 degree seat stays, but will be too long and need the end trimmed shorter still.
The rear fender braces are designed to be custom-cut around cable stops/guides and other unique seatstay/swingarm shapes and features. Some frames have assymetrical stays, like found on EVIL bikes, and may not fit or will require extensive customization to fit.
Kit includes fender, zipties and protective/non-slip heli tape.

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 Hugger 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 UK 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. Whilst we’d be the first to admit we wouldn’t win any beauty competitions, once fitted to your bike you will hardly notice it’s there, and staying dryer and cleaner for longer means you can stay out on your bike for longer before retiring to the pub for a well earned pint or 2... remember, always drink responsibly ;)
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.
***MUDHUGGER - WARNING***
Please note to periodically check that zip ties are tight and that the heli tape is inspected and replaced before it wears out. This will cause damage to the frame underneath if neglected to be replaced.
