Mudhugger Rear Guard 26, 27.5 and 29er Options
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.
 
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.
 
26/27.5 :
Fits 26" full suss and hardtail and 27.5" hardtail bikes. 560mm long, 95mm wide. Weight approx 208g exc fittings.
 
29er :
The 29er fits 650B and 29er hardtail and full suss bikes. 640mm long, 95mm wide. Weight approx 208g exc fittings.
 

 

Mudhuggers are expensive mudguards which work pretty well. It wouldn't be reasonable to expect to ride a bicycle on a rainy day and not get muddy, but these keep most of the mud off of the rider. All mudguards are noisy, these aren't an exception, they flap about a bit on rough terrain and make some noises. I have fitted both the front and the rear mudguard and saliently I had no problem with mud in my eyes or on my riding glasses and my back was only a little muddy after a few hours of riding on wet off road terrain. What they do do is stop most of the mud from hitting the rider. What they don't do is shift around, fall off or miss a lot of the mud and water being thrown up by the tires. Pro's: They're easy to fit, they work pretty well, catch most of the mud and water and stay in place. Con's: They're ugly, expensive and noisy.
Provides enough protection against the elements, hope it will last
Solid mudguard, doesn't rattle and covers your rear end.
Absolutely the best rear fender for Orange 26" MTB bikes and others with thick rear swingarm. Easy to install and made out of nice plastic, not that brittle and hard stuff.
This product is not suited to all bikes as I have found in my experience because of the design of the guard and the layout of the bikes. Doesn't quite provide adequate coverage of the rear suspension components as I would have liked, however this is hindered by the design of the bike. Mudhuggers have produced a quality product, but there are limitations to fitment based on the available real estate based on what the bike manufacturers have left behind. Mudhuggers Shorty Front Guard is fantastic, however this one is much more difficult to successfully develop as different bikes will have different challenges. Will not work well on all bike designs.
Fully tested in the soggy Pentlands over the weekend, kept all the crud off my rear end. Looks a well made, solid item. Well packed in a strong box and swift delivery again. Well done Merlin.
Nice, solidly made piece of kit , comes with helicopter tape to protect your seat stays should you need it. Attaches with supplied cable ties in seconds and you are ready to go! So far my rear end stays dry on my commute into work through mud and road spray. I would say it does the job and looks good doing it!
I've finally found the best rear Mudguard. I've had several over the years and had decided that there wasn't one that looked OK and did a great job. I found the perfect front guard too, from a different manufacturer but the review for it will be similar.
Lets start with the obvious, it doesn't make your bike look good/better! It does however provide a more comfortable ride since I don't get all that cold mud/water from the rear wheel on my ass. Biking when it is often cold and wet it is well worth the ugliness, I do take it off asap when the weather permits. Using the frame protectors included there is no trace that it has been mounted. The fact that I broke my last one closing the garage door on it (while not mounted) and still buys another one is probably the best verdict!
