SKS Shockboard is flawed but still excellent- the mounting hardware is feeble, cracks too easily but a couple of cable ties fixes that. Not even all that ugly- less stupid looking than a crud catcher imo and actually does something.
Muckynuts Bender Fender is fairly effective but definitely has its limits, especially at higher speed when it stops catching the stuff that goes out forwards. But on the other hand, is lightweight and non-ugly so mine stay on all year except when the Shockboards go on.Posted 4 years agorobdobMember
The ride I went on yesterday was quite muddy – wet mud rather than sticky. I couldn’t find my crud catcher so depended only on my RRP neoprene guard. The whole ride I got 3 drops of water/mud on my sunglasses despite being in it for 5hrs+! Brilliant bit of kit and now I won’t bother with the crud catcher.
What amuses me is people on £3k bikes saying “they’re too expensive” and making their own out of inner tubes. 🙄 😆Posted 4 years agoiain1775Subscriber
Just fitted a mudhugger to the front today, will test it tomorrow but first impressions are good, and at £18 it’s a lot more solid, hard wearing and robust than a fender bender (which I found just bent every time Imhad to remove wheel and put bike in car), low profile too can hardly see its therePosted 4 years ago
Thinking of getting another front one to botch onto the rear as a shock guard (Commencal Meta AM)iain1775Subscriber
Just back from a 4.5 hr very muddy ride first time using the mudhuggerPosted 4 years ago
Very very impressed would recommend them over any other mudguard at the moment, totally solid, didn’t move a millimetre and kept my face, front of bike and fork stanchions pretty much spotless
Neoguard and a mucky nutz fender bender for sale if anyone wants?
