Ride in the rain much?
Looking for the best mountain bike fenders on the market? Look no further – Cyclepath PDX is your exclusive source for all UK-based Mudhugger Fenders and related products! After all, fall/winter in the PNW looks a lot like it does in the UK…
Completely manufactured in the UK, Mudhugger’s core products are made of a rigid injection-molded plastic rather than a thin, soft and flexy plastic. Plus, they’re bigger. Much bigger. Compare a standard or long front fender to the functional coverage of other comparable fenders and you only find a couple high-priced products that even come close.
THE MAKERS OF MUDHUGGER HAVE BEEN RIDING MTB SINCE THE LATE 80’S WHEN THE FIRST MOUNTAIN BIKES CAME INTO THE UK FROM THE STATES AND BEEN LOVING IT EVER SINCE. BACK THEN THEY USED IT AS A WAY OF GETTING OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS AND KEEPING FIT FOR SUMMERTIME CLIMBING ADVENTURES, OR WHEN THE WEATHER WAS TOO WET TO CLIMB. SOUND FAMILIAR?
Fast forward some thirty years and ignoring a few years in the wilderness spent on golf courses (don’t ask), we’re enjoying riding off-road more and more with each passing year.
When dropper posts and good LED lights became available/affordable the style and type of riding we could do through the wet winter months (there are 11 winter months in the UK) changed and we found ourselves out on steep, muddy, rooty, exciting singletrack daytime routes.
The only downside was the filthy state we got in because there were just no rear mudguards available that allowed us to ride the way we wanted. They caught on the rear tyre, on our shorts, stopped you getting off the back of the bike, snapped off, swung sideways etc. So we stopped using them and moaned about the mud, the damage to our dropper posts, the state of the washing machine, whilst shivering outside our regular post ride pub because we couldn’t go and sit inside without incurring the wrath of Dave the landlord.
