Most mountain bikers now accept that a good front mudguard makes sense to reduce the amount of mud or spray flying up off the front tyre and into your eyes, glasses or goggles. Not only is it much safer, it's also more comfortable (think, hurtling down a fire road at 30mph and being pebbledashed in the face by lovely welsh grit and mud) and means you can ride faster more safely.

At only 60g in weight and 340mm long you won't even notice it's there due to tyre hugging profile. Don't be deceived by it's stealthy looks though, the Shorty still offers awesome mud and spray protection in all but the very worst riding conditions (if you love your gravity fuelled thrills in all weathers we'd recommend the FR Hugger though) helping to keep your line of vision down the trail clear.

Designed to work on all 26er, 650B and 29er (We recommend the front extender if purchasing for 29er sized wheeled bike) front forks. Also fits Plus size tyres with a Boost spec fork.

Generally if you can get your pinky between the fork brace and top the tyre there is enough clearance to fit to your bike.

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.

How to Fit a Mudhugger Shorty

Watch this video before fitting your Mudhugger Shorty.

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.
