Building on the award winning, tried and tested Rear Mudhugger design, we have now added 3 significant improvements over the original 2012 Rear Mudhugger design.
1. Utilizing reusable quick release Velcro straps to fit to the helitape protected seat stays makes fitting and removing a matter of seconds.
2. Where the Mudhugger 'sits' on the seat stays we have incorporated rubber inserts which aid grip and improves damping.
3. An all new push fit BB extender. Designed to protect bearings and the BB area from mud and debris build up, in even the most extreme conditions. This has been designed to be as thin as possible so that it can be easily trimmed to suit most bike rear triangle designs*.
The LONG version is designed for bikes with a seat stay angle from 28 degrees down to 22 degrees. Can be fitted to 'most' mountain bikes with disc brakes, even with external cables and hoses.
Length - 775mm.
Width - 105mm.
BB Extension - 230mm long x 80mm wide
Weight - 300g excluding fittings.
MEDIUM MK2 Rear Mudhugger comes supplied with:
-2 x helitape sheets to protect seat stays.
-4 x reusable velcro straps
-2 x rubber damping strips
-1 x BB extension piece
We recommend that you periodically check the condition of the helitape for signs of wear. Spare packs of Helitape are available on the Mudhugger website. Replace as necessary.
Regularly check the velcro for build up of dirt, etc., wash and dry as required. Replace if any signs of tearing or the velcro hook and loop becomes worn and loses its stickiness. Spare Velcro straps are available on the Mudhugger website. Zipties can also be used to fit the Mk2 Rear Mudhugger to your bike if you should so choose.
*If your seat stay brace is located very close to the tire, you may not be able to utilize the BB extender.
