Winter is Here – Mucky Nutz in webstore now

Posted by Caleb Smith on Tuesday April 23 2013

We did post this up the other day but since then we’ve sold out of our first shipment of Mucky Nutz bendable lightweight fenders. Well we just got a whole shedload more and they’re in the webshop here now. If they sell like the first lot they won’t last long so get in now. It’s also worth mentioning that like unlike other copies of the bendable fender, the Mucky Nutz Bender Fender, Bender Fender XL and Gut Fender all come with enough double sided Velcro for easy installation (and removal) and won’t tear the plastic like zip ties.

Man I love Game of Thrones, I’ve read all the books (and I’m eagerly awaiting the remainder) and although the TV series is departing a bit from the books, it’s still pretty cool to see it translated to the screen. What isn’t cool is the fact that in both Game of Thrones and here in New Zealand winter is indeed coming, and this past weekend’s riding (well in Wellington at least) was a reminder of that. Supposedly though we have a little time up our sleeves to get our winter riding kits in order and our night lights charged.

Now while we don’t have white walkers to deal with, we’ll soon have a whole lot of mud to deal with and the folks at Mucky Nutz have got a product line to keep you mostly mud free. Now I ran the Mucky Nutz Bender Fender all last year and was blown away with just how much mud the thing kept off my face, but with the whole line you can keep the mud off your arse, out of your shock and away from your down tube. And just so you know what’s up, the Bender Fender was first released in 2009 by Mucky Nutz, and apart from cut up ice cream lids it’s the original bend-able fender. Now we have a bunch of these on order and will have them in the Webshop soon. In the meantime check ‘em out here and as soon as they’re in stock we’ll let you know.

All of Mucky Nutz Fenders are available to buy in the Spoke Shop here, NOW.

The Bender Fender – Made from sheet thermoplastic, the profile of the mudguard is shaped such that when installed on the fork, via the hook and loop fasteners, it catches the mud, spray and whatever else you might pick up, that would eventually find its way to your face. This has been determined by working out the trajectory of the emanating matter for a given wheel speed range. Or in other words, spinning the wheel, throwing water at it and seeing where it goes.

The Bender Fender XL – It’s the same thickness as the standard Bender Fender but provides ultimate protection at a modest 32g. As with the original BF, it can be used up front on the fork or at the rear to protect the rear sus and front mech.

The Gut Fender – The black Gut Fender is Mucky Nutz’ take on the down tube mudguard and weighs in at just 30g. It attaches to the down tube, using the supplied fastener or your own zipties. Coupled with the Bender Fender this combo provides superb front-end protection, for you and your bike.

The Butt Fender – The Butt Fender joins the already established Bender Fender range and in doing so uses the same technology and materials, reaping many of the known benefits. It attaches to the saddle rails, with no need for additional fasteners, and hangs over the back wheel, protecting the rider against ‘soggy arse syndrome’. So if you’re prone to this problem and are looking for a lightweight, minimalist solution, weighing in at just 19g, look no further!
