Mudhugger vs. Mudguardz
Personally, I havn’t been that impressed with my mudhugger fitted to a set of new fox 36’s. It doesn’t really seem to stop much more splashing than my old marsh guard equivalent did and looks less tidy aswell… I can’t ride in the wet without glasses/goggles which is what I was sold in believing.
I would personally dig a little deeper and get the powa dfender version next time. Look much better practically and aestheticallyPosted 1 year ago
Having been impressed recently by how effective these are (compared to my Marsh Guard, which I’ll put back on for the ‘summer’) I figured I’d might as well humiliate my bikes for the winter and join the club.
Both plastic, both about the £25 mark including delivery. Is there much to separate them? SHould I got for the longer or shorter versions?
I’ll be fitting to some Fox 34’s. Ideally I’d be able to fit and remove it repeatedly but I can accept I’m just going to burn through a lot of cable ties this winter!
Anyone got a reason to go with one or the other?Posted 1 year agoSTATOMember

In my opinion yes, I’m a Motoxer and it looks similar to the front mudguard on them.
In fairness, my mudhugger is the original front version, they have since revised it to the one pictured above, so may well be different.
Yes the original is way too short for a 36. There will still be a clear line of sight from the tyre through the stations. You need the longer Race, the original only really works upto 130mm IMO (unless you have good clearance in which case you can tweak it by moving the holes to pull the rear up, doesn’t work on many forks though).Posted 1 year agoonedpeteMember
Ok, I’m rejuvenating this thread as I’d like some input myself…I’m wanting a front mudguard of sorts and like the look of these. I’ve been running a Marshguard for last couple years and found it pretty decent tbh. I’m tempted to just get another one for the new bike, maybe with the stash for a bit of extra protection. Has anyone been using the rockguardz pg 350? I do like the look of that one as I regularly transport my bike in the back of the car, so not sure about the long ones…any advice please??Posted 5 months ago

OP here,. I bought a Rockguardz (I think the PG450) and it’s been great.
I drilled out the holes in to slots and use it with some double sided velcro so that I can remove the mudguard and swap it between bikes (also so that I can transport it in the car, lying on its side, with the forks face down).
However we realised the bike does fit in to the car upside down, which means I don’t have to take the mudguard off at all any more anyway.Posted 5 months agoSpeshpaulSubscriber
The guys at Rockguardz are really helpful and all great riders, they’ve built a range of Guardz in different lengths now.
The “cheaper Plastic” one is cheaper and polycarbinate, but is a quality product that works very well. The carbon ones are still available, and look ace, and the ploy ones have a bit of flex in them.
Their frame Guardz are pretty ace as well.Posted 5 months agonickhit3Member
cant speak for the Rockguardz, but the Mudhugger FR has impressed me greatly. Didn’t have to mod the mounting as mentioned above and its very secure. It’s flexible too so I’ve not had issues in the back of the car (a common question) or when crashing (even commoner..) Leaving it on year round now. Cant believe i survived for so long with a Marshguard- the looks wont bother you after an hour. The de-stickered one is unobtrusive too.Posted 5 months agooikeithMember
I picked up a Mudhugger FR on the weekend for my 29er, it replaces one of those smaller guards as I became sick of spray in my face.
I have to say, although it was painful setting it up, I am impressed. The trails down here after several consecutive days of rain are soaked and the guard is doing a good job at keeping spray of my face and glasses.Posted 5 months ago
