Mucky Nutz ---- Face and Butt Fenders

The Mucky Nutz Face Fender, mounts on your front fork. It measures 8 1/4 inches long and narrows in width from 5 1/2 to 3 1/4 inches and weights only 25 grams. The Face Fender comes with a roll of micro hook and loop (Velcro) 34 inches long by a half inch wide, to create straps out of. If you evenly cut the strip of Velcro you could make four, 8 1/2 inch strips. There are eight cut outs on the Face Fender that the Velcro straps will loop through. A strap on each side, both left and right on the fork and two straps wrap around the fork’s bridge. With the Face Fender mounted under the fork bridge, there is still enough clearance for your tire to still roll smoothly. The Face Fender keeps mud and dirty, or whatever may be on the trail, from being slung in your face or thrown at your bikes frame. Being mounted below your exposed shocks, it too keeps whatever mud or dirt would be thrown on them away. They stay put and are very solid once attached and don’t rattle or shake around.  So with the Face Fender protecting the front end of your bike, Mucky Nutz has just the answer for also protecting you on the back end too. The Butt Fender! 

The width of the Butt Fender tapers from 5 1/4 inches wide to 3 1/4 inches wide. The length of the fender is about 12 inches long, some of this length gets taken away as it attached under the seat.  It mounts without any added accessories as the Butt Fender mounts with the pre-made hooks that attach to the underside of your seat, with the seat rails. It weighs only 30 grams. There are two creases in the fender you can bend to create more of a curve or square out the flat piece of thermoplastic polymer which has a highly resistant to heat. 

With both the Face and Butt Fenders being made of the plastic, they can easily be washed off of the mud and dirt the trails throw at you.
After mounted on the bike seat, the Butt Fender ends up sticking out behind the seat about eight inches.  

When the trail is dry, these light weight and flat profile Mucky Nutz fenders have a place in my mountain bike pack, right next to an extra tube. If the wet or nasty weather moves in while I am riding, they can simply be attached and the ride can continue.  

Check them out and order a set before the winter rains arrive and turn your trails into muddy messes.
