Mudhugger FR Fender - Review

Mudhugger Front Race mudguard - Review

Mudhugger is a small British company that manufactures its own range of front and rear mudguards to suit different wheel sizes. The company got their start when Bruce Gardiner, fed up with getting mud in his face on weekly night rides, decided to do something about it. His creation provides full protection from water and mud spray that can plaster your face and impair your vision.

Made from injection-molded plastic, the Front Race (FR) mudguard is the longer of the two mudguards the company offers. It’s curved and wraps around the front wheel, with a long tail and slightly shorter front section. Four zip ties are used to affix it to the fork, and its fore-aft position can be adjusted with a choice of slots to choose from. At 65 grams the Mudhugger doesn’t add much weight to the bike, and it fits 26, 27.5 and 29” bikes. It’ll fit the new breed of 27.5 Plus bikes with Boost 110 forks too. Mudhugger also offers rear mudguards that mount directly to the swingarm. MSRP is $32 USD (£25) from www.themudhugger.co.uk


Mudhugger Front Race mudguard - Review
The front section is long enough to stop mud from hitting your face


Mudhugger Front Race mudguard - Review
Zip ties, four of them, keep the Mudhugger securely in place



Pinkbike's Take:

bigquotesThe Mudhugger transforms winter riding when the trails are caked in gloopy mud. The protection from mud kicked up by the front tire is so good that I've been able to stop wearing cycling glasses that I normally use to keep crud out of my eyes. Very occasionally, mainly when leaning into a corner, a bit of mud or water might bypass the mudguard and hit you in the face, but such incidents are rare. After a recent night ride, I had the cleanest face in the group, a testament to how much protection it provides.

I mounted the Mudhugger to different Fox and RockShox forks with no issues. On a 27.5" bike with a 2.35" tire, the Mudhugger does sit quite close to the tire, but any fears that it would clog or obstruct the wheel proved unfounded. Apart from the occasional twig or leaf barging through between the plastic and the tire, it didn't cause any interference problems. The Mudhugger has been put through its paces on dozens of rides, chucked in the back of the car, and even subjected to a few crashes, but the durability has been just fine. Obviously, you need to take a bit more care when transporting your bike, but the plastic has proved to be very robust. The mudguard is supplied with zip ties - velcro straps would facilitate easier removal, but the zip ties do provide a very secure fit. With a Mudhugger in place, there's no reason to let the mud and rain stop you from riding.

 Rockguardz doesn't get enough mention in my opinion.The enduro guard they do not only looks better but it's carbon too.This mud hugger looks like a crappy home bodge made out of guttering.

 My brother has the slightly shorter version and although it's bigger than a marsh guard, it still looks OK because it sits so close to the tyre. The marsh guards are probably more noticeable due to the fact they stick straight out.

 @enduro86 Form over function, right? You're so cool.
Actually the mudhugger follows the curve of the wheel so is barely even visible at a glance.


And yep, tried various guards (marsh guard wasn't the first, mucky nutz bender fender was) and the mudhugger is way better than any of those bent polyprop type ones. Makes a huge difference when riding in the wet (which is all the time in north wales, I haven't ridden a dry trail in months)

 This fender is just too damn ugly.

 With my Magic Mary, 29mm internal wheels, and Pike there is nary any clearance for mud and one of these things. It may be our soil that doesn't shed very well when wet but I had to cut my fender off my bike the last time I rode on wet trails. I'd like to see one designed to go on top of the arch for this reason. Anyone seen something like this?

 Chrome it and I'm in!

 Fenders ain't put on a bike for looks. Function over form. I have both mud hugger and rock guardz carbon ones and they both work equally as good better than those tiny marsh guard things. The carbon rockguardz is lighter being carbon fibre but they crack quite easy. Mud hugger weighs more but is more durable. The front fender ain't that noticeable when it's on the bike. Their rear ones now they ugly but again work real well when the trail gets wet. Keeps your Arse dry so you can ride longer.

 @dropoffsticks That's close but at nearly .5 lbs it doesn't seem worth it. I envision a similar design to the current muckynuts or above model but with a cutout/indentation for the middle section to go over the arch. The nice thing about the little plastic fenders is they weigh next to nothing but are functional.

 I'd rather keep my teeth because I didn't plough into a tree because my eyes were full of mud. Life is much more enjoyable with beer AND teeth.


Do canadians even ride over winter? Try riding through a british winter. You'll want a front fender.

 Sam, you guys don't have a real winter compared to the folks like me living in the Rockies. You have a lot of mud? Cool story. That's my June, September and the first week of October I can ride. Just because our riding season is shorter over hear, doesn't mean we don't get the same shit you do.

 Check this out. Front mud guard, awesome riding and mostly without eye shields. How many comments criticised his mud guard?? None. Because if the weather is shitty and you're riding fast who cares!

 @looeythedog how dare you? I've never been so outraged in my life. All we have over here is winter... Take away winter and we have nothing.

Seriously though you need to google English floods we have winter.


I couldn't recommend this mud guard enough. It's a game changer in the wet literally no mud or water in your face. Totally eliminated the chance off accidentally blinding yourself at the worst possible moment.

Here's a picture of mine looks pretty cool when it's fitted right unlike the one in the review which looks like it's just been thrown on... It's not even straight.

 My mudhugger is held in via 4 velcro straps not zip ties.
They work and work well. I used mine countless times in whistler bike park ..
It costs a lot of money to get to whistler from the uk around £1700 for a 2 week trip it costs $60 a day for a lift ticket $400-$500 for the 2 weeks.
These fenders have saved my days riding more than once. Being able to do full bike park laps with out having to keep stopping to wipe your goggles. Keeping shit out your eyes.
Or if you racing you don't have to use tear offs which litter the trails and you have to take your hand off the bars to remove them.
And my 8 year old daughter has a pink bike with them on to.

 Yeah it's a bit expensive I agree but I liked mine enough I bought another for Mrs S. Muc nutz are nowhere near as big or effective at catching mud. Also the article doesn't mention that the cable ties for the rear are supposed to be sacrificial so you don't break the mudguard in a crash, something I have done multiple times with crudcatcher.

(@Jay0384 if you're the guy behind it - not sure I agree with your sizing though - your site said to order a 29er guard for a 26er with low seatstay angle, but it's on the long side).

 It's not really expensive when it's actually stoping mud from getting in your eyes when your dodging trees at 40mph.

 …so true…lol

 @thenotoriousmic

It's expensive when you consider it's three times more than other systems that serve the same function. It's expensive when you consider it's just a cheap piece of plastic that's hella more expensive than production costs because they can claim made in UK.

So yeah, actually, I would call this expensive. There's more dear parts out there, certainly (defender comes to mind) but there are certainly some MUCH cheaper options as well.
  • + 3
 @sherbet at £25 it's an absolute bargain there's two or three other similar systems and they are all more expensive and then when you consider that a marsh / enduro guard cost £15 and don't even work add the ability to see and it protects your super expensive forks it's hard to argue that it's not a bargain. Out of interest has anyone here who actually owns one have anything bad to say about them?
  • + 3
 Yeah, 'handmade' is a bit if a stretch i know, but they claim it. To be honest, it's worth the $35 to me (it may be 35US but its also 35CAD, weird i know) it's performed way better than my mucky nutz, and it doesnt look half but once you actually put it on. It's also a great match with the rear fender for maximum coverage. It may look a little dorky, but in the Shore slop it's definitely worth sacrificing a bit of aesthetic for a few months
  • + 2
 I would imagine that the cost is high not only due to the high cost of purchasing an injection mould, but also due to the fender being produced in the UK. If you want a cheaper product, find one from an economy with cheaper production costs and taxation rates.
  • + 12
 I've tried the Mucky Nutz and Marsh Guard.
#1 they are flat plastic and I think look a bit ridiculous with straight profile over a round tire. Only saving grace is they are so short.
#2 they don't protect spray onto the lower headset bearing because they are just a bit too short. I modified mine to mount more aft and now just barely prevents spray on the bearing. This is important to me because streets here are salted in winter.
#3 they don't do anything to stop forward spray which you then ride through.
#4 The Mucky Nutz is very thin and cheap - pine cones "barging" though the gap have destroyed mine.

This article (and all PB articles, really) should compare the product to other popular options.
  • + 1
 In aus the mn is about half the price of the marsh guard. Plus I prefer the Velcro to zip ties.
  • + 9
 Many can't really justify spending $32 USD on it, but you just have to come to terms with the mtb industry. They aren't pumping out hundreds of thousands of these fenders, so in order for it to be worthwhile to the company (Mudhugger) they'd have to set the bar high. It's either you buy it or just not complain and make your own.
  • + 8
 These do a very good job during the British wet season (9 months of year). Can be bettered by the dfender guard, but expensive and possibly limited fitting. A mucky nutz type and a gut fender/crud catcher together will also do a great job too, but I prefer the single mud hugger guard.
Brits know a thing or two about mud guards!
  • + 7
 I agree. Good job, good idea, good product. And less ugly than others. For this kind of thing, it is difficult to make aesthetic and this one is forgotten. I'll get one as soon as i'll come in Cardiff Wink

 @T1mb0 not exactly what I meant. Those still have a generic mounting that clamps over the arch of the fork.

I'm talking about something for the Fox like DVO has. Someone comes out with that and they'll sell a bunch.

 I constantly harp on lack of proper fenders and fender mounts. Mark my words, in 2 or 3 years we will look back and laugh at zip-tying cheap plastic fenders to multi-thousand dollar bicycles. Seriously, just put a couple threaded mounts in the arch and a quality fender is possible.
  • + 2
 Then they'll all have to agree on an IS mudguard mount then... which going by all the other standards it should be a massive success for 5 minutes.

We've been zip tying mudguards, cables on for years (decades) and I don't see it changing soon.

That DVO fender is tiny and only on the rear of the arch, so can't be that effective.

I'm just going to stick my old THE fender on and go back to 1998... Even found a 1.5 star nut so I'm set to go.
  • + 5
 @dfiler That's been said since the 90's. MTB is still not moto. The only thing they're starting to catch onto is the manufacturers are finally trying to consider it their responsibility to put something on the chainstay "part of the bike"...rather than the job of us hacks to mod something up or Lizard Skin it.

That (something moto has done since the 70's) is barely coming around to mountain bike manufacturers.

You really think they'll figure out how to make fender?
  • + 3
 @T1mb0 While the DVO one is tiny, I was referring to the way it mounts. Not hard to make a larger one.
  • + 2
 @T1mb0, a mount standard could be developed but isn't really needed. We're talking about a simple molded piece of plastic. Every manufacturer could easily have their own and it would make little cost difference.

As for only attaching to the rear of the arch, it is still amazingly effective. I too thought the behind arch style wouldn't stop much mud. But it does. I pretty much never get mud in my eyes with one of these tiny fenders. Proper mounting holes could be used for any size of fender, including those that extend in front of the arch too.
  • + 1
 I never said a rear mounted fender was not effective in general... only that the DVO one is tiny and IT doesn't look that effective!! ...
  • + 5
 I have a mucky nutz front fender, which is pretty similar. Makes a big difference for me. I first got the fender for my downhill bike, because I got sick of mud-covered goggles (and mud-covered eye balls after I took my mud-covered goggles off partway down the mountain on a wet day). Now I'm using it on my trail bike so I can keep riding in winter. Say what you want about the look, but I don't get mud in my eyes, so I'm happy. And I don't have to go through a pack of tear-offs every run. Actually just ordered the Mud Hugger rear guard to avoid freezing my ass off, kinda literally, on those days when it's wet and splashing and only a little above freezing. Rear guard is sweet cause it mounts direclty to the swing arm, which looks way more solid to me than the guards that attach to the seat post.
  • + 7
 You can make your own with a plastic table mat from Ikea, zip ties, hammer and nail (to make the holes) and some decent scissors.
  • + 4
 The best mudguard I have owned, and I've been through a number of other makes. I see a lot of comments about its looks, but because it conforms so well to the tyre you just don't notice it's there at all. It has survived front wheelcatcher-type uplifts and leaves heaps of room around my HR2 on a Fox 32, and even more with a Magic Mary on my Fox 36. Mud Hugger also sell an extension flap, which fits on very well, but the basic mudguard works so well I haven't yet felt the need to use it.
  • + 3
 Maybe people should try something before giving it a bad review?..... All I know is it keeps a lot of mud away from me and the bike. Far more than a muckynuts flap. It doesn't flap about, its totally solid. It doesn't get clogged or jammed up, Looks far better than a mojo Defender. doesn't crack like a rockguards fender, oh and its cheaper than both. What more do ya want?....

 You can't beat a powa defender! Yes it's a bit ugly and expensive but it's stronger than this and has a thumb wheel bolt and can be taken off or put on in 30 seconds with no fiddly cable ties to mess with! I would rather look a bit daft but get to the bottom in a race faster because I had no mud obscuring my vision.

 Looks big in pictures, but the lack of graphics and snug fit on the tyre means in real life you can barely notice its there. Had all the pay-for-something-you-can-make-from-a-milkbottle versions and the MudHugger is waaaaay better than them all.

 these work very well and also protect the stantions too. expensive yes but face free of mud and wet and less crap on the seals is worth it. I personally don't care that it looks a bit crap, I even use a rear one as well. a dry arse is worth it.
  • + 3
 Got the shorter one of these fitted on my main bike and it stays on all year it's that good! Keeps the seals muck-free and my face near-spotless, a godsend when I wear contacts and clear specs. So much more effective than the muckynutz I had before too. The rears are amazingly effective too.

 When I lived in the PNW, my self-made Mucky Nutz style fender worked just fine. Now that I live in central-Europe, it barely does anything for the slop and clay I have to deal with on winter rides.

 I don't see a problem with the price. Anyone looking for a fender of this type should be proud to buy one that is made in the UK, or any other MTB loving country around the world for that matter. It was designed by someone passionate about riding, and now it's another great choice.

 There is a big issue with such tight mudguards in the mountain, when there is lot of dirt. The dirt which is between the tire and the mudguard has no where to go. At some point it becomes so thick, that it blocks the wheel and the bike becomes unrideable. The only solution in this case is to remove the mudguard. This is no issue for a city bike, because there is not so much mud in the city.

 It's the noise they make that caught me out at 1st, could hear all the debris hitting the fender, was quite off putting for a while

 It doesn't clog at all I don't notice it's even there.

 put the zipties on the kashima. According to my calculations it increases security of the guard by 27.5%.

 Massive LOL @ the yanks thinking they have muddy trails, this guard is perfect for Euro mud. The sort you have to have actual skills to ride in. No wonder the Euros kick the US's ass at mtb

 We need more mud arguments. I like mud arguments. COME ON YOU NORTH AMERICANS, LET'S ARGUE ABOUT MUD!!!
  • + 2
 My mud is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay muddier than yours, dirtier, harder to ride in, and generally just the best/worse depending on which way this argument goes
  • + 4
 OK, I'm in. Our mud on SoCal - when we get it - is sooooo sticky that your bike will be unrideable in about 75 yds (sorry - 68.5 meters). You also won't be able to walk because you will accumulate 14.73 cm of mud on the bottom of your shoes. Nonetheless, I just added a Mucky Nutz on my bike to look more Enduro...

 Come on, you don't want an over priced gadget that will clog up with mud then fold in on itself? I would rather spend the money on a six pack

 this thing ain't gonna fold up on itself

 I run a homemade front fender(mucky nuts style) but for the back Mudhuggers just can't be beat,sturdy and provide excellent coverage.For the price they are well worth the money.Cheaper than waterproof shorts and riding glasses.

 No one fits a mudguard because it looks good on the bike. It serves a purpose in the winter though, when every ride involves finishing caked in mud, and keeps your vision clear so you can see where you're going. And that's worth a lot. So much so that it's worth putting up with the looks imo
  • + 1
 Agreed. I use one too, but there are other options that look way better. More compact ones too.
