One of the original mountain bike mudguard brands, Crud Products are still going strong and pushing out superb products. The RacePac set, which includes front and rear 'guards, is no different, with a lightweight, sleek design and all-but-bombproof materials adding up to a great package.
It's not perfect though. The Crud Catcher at the front doesn't ﬁt too well on odd-shaped tubing or where the down tube is used for cable routing, and some of our testers felt the coverage wasn’t quite as good as some of its rivals', with the slimline design letting muck round the sides on occasion.
