Mucky Nuts has been around as a UK company with various types of guards to keep the proverbial shite from ones face, arse, shock and fork seals since 2009. They have the usual story of being made as a bit of a hobby at first, to now becoming a world exporting brand, with many a DH and Enduro rider sporting these simple low cost guards, and them being seen all over the UK.

This one, The Bender Fender, made from very flexible plastic, comes in black or white (one seen here especially printed up for us) it’s the lightest guard in its class and can simply be cable tied to any fork for any wheel-size.


They can also be used on certain types of frames as a rear guard/shock protector.

Price £8.99
For this and the others in their range
