I ran one of Will’s units on my 2019 Levo. Is is a simple design but once installed and adjusted it was a really well thought out piece. Likely to pick one up for my new Gen 3.

I’ve tried every type of fender, and nothing worked as well as the mudhuggers — they are both sturdy & long enough to stop gravel in my eyes, and mud on my back!

I’ve been using the mudhuggers on both my 2014 Stumpy, and my gravel bike, as they now make a gravel variant for upto 50mm tyres!! ✅

I also bought 2 extra front huggers, and trimmed them to make full protection around the chain & rear stays — especially to protect the FSR bearings!! I just bought a new Levo Comp 2022, and I noticed that they’ve re-designed new rear Huggers WITH an attachment to do just that — protect the chain & bearings. Very cool. Along with the easy on/off straps which are another nice touch.

Get ‘em! You’ll be happy you did!

It looks like it could get crushed by the linkage, but I wanted to ask if anyone has tried it. Looks to have good reviews on eBay.

I have one of these albeit it is much shorter. I have been very happy with the fender but most definitely do not ride in the muddy wet conditions that those in the UK are brave enough to slog through.

I just couldn't get myself to use such a long mud guard in the back yet.
The "problem" is that these are the *only* ones that will effectively protect your back from mud, all the other ones will only (somewhat) work for the shock and the linkages. The mud flings off at around the highest point of the wheel, so anything not covering this area will simply do nothing for the rider sitting on the bike.

I'm using the FRX Mudhugger, which also only protects the linkages, and it stops basically where the dropper post starts.
I didn't really need to cut it down, I only removed a small section where the chain is running, similar to what can be seen on @jlwoody image (are you using two different mud huggers in the back?).
One thing I noticed is that the material can crack in cold temperatures (minus °C), something to keep in mind. But that's also true for my front Crud XL Fender.

Yes @sp00n this is the older model, so I have cut down a front hugger to protect the chain & bearings. The new model has a new integrated piece. I've been riding in cold temps, and haven't had any cracks ... yet! :)

Hey all, I ended up getting the RRP ProGuard Bolt-On Mudguard (Standard) for the front and the SKS Mudrocker Rear Fender for the rear. I haven't taken them out on a ride yet, but it looks like coverage and quality is good and fit is solid.

Stu, it's not "home made" and is our 3rd rear mudguard released in the past 4 years. Our first was for the 2nd Generation 2019-2021 Levos. The second was for the SL's with the mudflap thingy from the factory and our latest is the 2022-2023 for the Levo.
We've sold over 2,000 of them with many good and photos from 30 different countries.
