Mudhugger on the rear is the only choice currently , works well on the meta
Mr Crud’s new front guard looks brilliant , Iam hoping he will make an adaption of the same designe to fit the rear .
I run a crud catcher as well on my meta , in winter , it really keeps the crap off the battery
+1 for the mudhugger, for me, riding is almost impossible in the wet without one, no matter what I wear my back and lower "back" get soaked, with this thing on, I seek out dirt without a single f given. love em
on my front I've got an rrp and its a beast, had one of those flimsy bendable ones first, then a small fox specific upgrade, but neither did much to stop dirt covering my face AND the bike, with the rrp it keeps the forks really clean which is a bonus, but my face is completely protected too, the only part of my bike that gets caked now is the underside of the downtube.
Been trying this new crud xl fender on the front , it’s great , I think it looks good , certainly very effective and it fits and removes in seconds . The height is very adjustable with total mud clearance . It also looks good on a 29er and a normal 27.5 mtb
Iam considered a mudguard nerd by many of the youngsters and my mates , lots of riders don’t think mudguards are cool ,no idea why , being wet and cold isn’t cool to me , but when they saw this one the comments were all very positive .
I’ve got the old crud catcher on the downtube as well , main reason is it keeps the crap off the battery . I really can’t stand wearing goggles or glasses and this set up is working 💯 so far fir keeping my face and eyes clean
