Protect Your Bread and Butter with the Mudder Mini Front Fender
As the gravel segment expands, cyclists face new challenges. The issue of having dirt thrown in your face is a well-known problem among mountain bikers. With huge clearances for wide tires in the front fork, gravel riders are now facing a similar issue. Luckily for you, the Ass Savers MUDDER Mini is the best front fender to offer relief for your face and headset bearing.
A lightweight yet durable construction is the basis for this one-of-a-kind gravel and MTB fender. Attachment is easy, simply mount it to your fork legs just above your front tire and you will dramatically reduce the amount of spray in this critical area. Innovative anti-slip straps allow for an instant and a perfect fit on all fork sizes, making this fender simple to apply even while on the go.
While mountain bikers are used to mud, gravel bikers face a different challenge. Anyone who has ridden on a wet gravel road is familiar with the mixture of fine sand and water that seems to be designed specifically to seek and destroy your bearings — not to mention what it does to your eyes after a long ride. Protect your face with the Ass Savers MUDDER Mini for an off-road adventure unlike any other.

This is a neat little fender that works pretty well despite the small size. The fender is super lightweight and really helps to keep any dirt, dust, grime, or muck off the downtube. I don't notice as much spray or debris from the elements sticking to my legs and shoes or coming up into my face. The fender may seem to be too small at first but it tucks in nicely behind the fork and does provide good coverage. I've actually noticed the fender deflect rocks that get spun about from my front tire that otherwise would have hit the crank arms or downtube.
The fender was designed with gravel bikes in mind but it looks like it can be used on a variety of different forks. I bought it for my gravel rig and I've only ever used it for gravel riding, so I cannot attest to how well it fits or works on a road or mountain bike. It's easy to mount on the bike and is easy to clean. Just to be safe, I put clear 3M tape as frame guard around the fork to protect the paint before the first test ride. It's fairly adjustable and stays in place even through some of the roughest gravel. I can't think of anything I would change or don't like about the fender and it does the job.
Anything that will help to keep me, my bike, or my stuff as clean as possible is worth the investment IMHO. This front fender is a perfect complement to any Ass Savers saddle fender and I would definitely recommend it!
