"My ass have never been so dry with so little effort!"
- Ty, blogger at thefootdown.co.uk
"For a ride which doesn't have fenders, it's like a gift from the gods." - Jukka from Finland
"As a cost effective, easy to use, occasional fender, that looks pretty cool too, there's nothing better on the market." - Dan from UK
"My ass has never had a splatter on it every time I've needed to use it." - Joshua from New Zealand
Apparently oceanian people care about their asses as they are going into their rainy season and we like to share two nice reviews with you.
The San Marco Ass Saver has been tested by road.cc, one of UK's most influential sites for bike related stuff. Hear what they think...
Because of easter and a company trip to Amsterdam next week, shipping can be delayed for a few days. Sit back, relax and have another egg.
Mikko from Bikeminimalism wanted to ask us some questions after the victory in the Product of the Year category. Read it here!
We are five designers based out of Gothenburg, arguably the wettest city in all of Sweden. We also have unimaginably tiny satellite offices in Amsterdam (seriously tiny) and San Francisco (moderately tiny).
Sadly or gladly, none of us has matured past the point of twelve year old boys when we saw the world brought to life as we frenetically propelled ourselves as fast as we could down the streets. It’s out of these memories of this pedal-powered love that we create products to celebrate and encourage the joy of biking.
It is also our belief that we have an obligation to design responsibly to protect the environment as much as we can. You won’t find nasty materials or unnecessary packaging on any Ass Savers product, just read our view on the environment to see how serious we are about saving your ass and the earth’s at the same time.
Polypropylene (or PP) is one of the good guys in plastics, with properties that allow true recycling with almost no loss in material quality. The absence of harmful chemicals in PP is a blessing compared to many similar materials.
PP is a widely used packaging material and is highly suited for existing recycling systems around the world. The Ass Savers are designed from a single piece of PP to make it a breeze to recycle. When you finally have worn out your mudguard, just drop it into your normal plastic recycling container and become a part of the closed loop solution!
You won’t find any packaging on our products in your local bike shop. We believe good products sell themselves and that you as a customer don’t want to pay for something that immediately goes in to the trash anyways.
Our mudguards weigh only 15 grams. That probably makes them the lightest rear mudguard in the world. It also means we use less than one tenth (1/10!) of the material needed to produce your average plastic beavertail fender. That feels good in our hearts.
Only about 70% of our production are made from recycled PP. To be able to offer you the world of colors, we need to purchase virgin material. We are however working hard to source recycled PP in different colors and our goal is to be 100% in the recycling loop.
