An effective rear mudguard is much harder to make than a good front one, given all the intricacies of geometry and suspension action to consider.
As with their classic Crud Catcher down tube guard and new Fast Fender, Crud again lead the way with the RaceGuard Rear, and the new version is the best looking ever.
It’s also the best performing and easiest rear guard to fit and adjust that we’ve ever used. Simply snap the seat post bracket into position, select the appropriate thickness rubber shim for the clamp, tweak the angle and do up the single Allen bolt.
The Crud RaceGuard Rear won’t budge. It offers almost complete protection from rear wheel spray and looks good on both budget hardtails or blingtastic full-suss rigs.
