Product Description

The rear Mudhugger is the best most effective rear MTB mudguard for full-suspension and hardtail trail riding.

29er fits 650B and 29er hardtail and full suss bikes. 640mm long, 95mm wide. Weight approx 208g exc fittings.

 

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.

 

Key Features:

  • Easy to fit with zip ties to almost any frame with disc brakes
  • Strong and reliable once fitted correctly
  • Ride for longer and have more fun being dry and warm
  • Works with dropper seatposts

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

mud hugger rear mudguard
by Anonymous user on 05/11/2020

Great bit of kit - nice and long to ensure best coverage; easy to fit and the little see-through plastic bits massively help protect the paintwork! Great service from Tredz to boot!

Very good product

I am very pleased with the Mudhugger rear 29". The item was delivered a day early and the packaging was robust. The mudhugger was very easy to fit but I did watch a video on You tube. On the next outing on the bike I returned home with a clean back to my cycling jacket.

Simple and Spot On
by Anonymous user on 23/10/2020

Tired of that mud stripe up your back whenever it is wet? This thing does the business and is easy to fit. The supplied tape protects the frame, the mudguard doesn't rattle around and the protection is good.

by Anonymous user on 15/10/2020

I have 27.5 plus tyres on my MTB. It fits lovely. Ready to fit. Doesn't shake around and when I'm going down a techy bit. when it's on the back of my car the mudguards doesn't distort.

Mud Hugger - Ugly but perfect
by Anonymous user on 06/10/2020

Lets be honest no mudguard looks good on a MTB, most hardly work in the midst of the English winter weather. Mudhugger have got this right though, well almost. The width, length and strength are perfect to prevent you looking like the ride a little more scary than you'd have liked. Supplied with HeliTape to protect the frame and tie wraps, all you need is in the box. The only marginally nonplus comment I would make is that it fits to the upper part of the rear triangle, as such leaving an area unprotected, allowing mud and alike to collect at the base of the rear triangle.

Mudguard Guide

 

Mudguard Guide

Why use mudguards?

Mudguards help keep you warm and dry in the wetter months while also protecting your bike from mud, grit and spray.

This can dramatically cut down any maintenance needed to your bike through the winter. For commuters they are essential, road cyclists will enjoy the dry, comfortable feeling while not spraying any friends behind, and mountain bikers will cut down spray and mud to the face, eyes and back. Warm and dry cycling is simply more enjoyable, meaning you can ride longer and more often through the winter.


What type of mudguards will fit my bike?

For commuters, road riders and general cyclists the first thing to look for are eyelets or attachment points on your frame and fork. There are often different widths of mudguard with all types to suit your tyre. There are many combinations of wheel size and tyre width available, check your bike for these sizes and choose the appropriate option.

“Ass Savers” and “Enduro Guards”

When you need a quick solution these light and unobtrusive mudguards make a great choice. The “Ass Saver” style clips into your saddle rails and only take seconds to take on and off, they help stop a soggy bottom on an unexpected rainy day or when the road surface is still wet. The “Enduro Guard” style is intended for mountain bikes and is often left on year-round, while you do need a couple of zip ties to fit, they are fit-and-forget and help keep spray and mud away from your face.

Full-length mudguards

If your bike does have eyelets then full-length mudguards can be used, these offer the best protection for bike and rider from the elements. They do take a little longer to fit as they are so robust. Some longer types have additional mud flaps and reflectors built in.

To find the right size, simply select the option that suits your wheel size and tyre width.

Clip on mudguards

Road and hybrid bikes with no eyelets for mudguards will use a clip-on type. These simply strap around the fork leg and rear stay to offer a very good amount of protection depending on the length of the mudguard.

Mountain bike mudguards

Mountain bikers can keep riding through the worst of the winter weather with fork arch mounted mudguards and rear mudguards mounted to either the chainstays or seatpost. With sizes working well with 29ers and rear chainstay mounted guards pose no issue with dropper seat posts.

They might not be the most glamorous of accessories but staying dry will keep you warm, meaning you can stay out longer and ride more often. Being able to keep riding through the winter will keep skill and fitness on point for when the trails and weather start to dry.

Summary

Mountain bike with a downtube guard

Mudguards are essential to keep riding through the winter, with many different types there is a wet weather solution to almost every bike. Road cyclists will be able to keep training through the worst of weather and riding friends appreciate not riding through the spray normally thrown up by the rider ahead.

Your bike will thank you and your winter clothing will last longer. Commuters will find mudguards essential, and mountain bikers will find it easier to keep warm and dry through the most extreme conditions.
