The Ass Saver Original is our third generation foldable mudguard. Proven and tested in the field, it's a simple solution to the annoying brown stripe down the back of your pants.
The new and much improved ASO-3 is compatible with almost every standard rail saddle thanks to our new patent pending attachment system. The ASO-3 is a breeze to mount and once in place, it stays in place. When not in use, it can be folded up and stored underneath your seat, ready to be deployed the next time you are caught out in a shower. The new design have also resulted in a more durable product that is less sensitive to wear and tear. So whether you're urban shredding, winter training or just prefer to keep your behind unsoiled, the ASO-3 is your new best friend!
Hi Q, Although we're not going to argue that a front fender would do a lot of good, we feel that it is a little bit too much to ask that a rear mudguard should solve that problem. Hope you find a solution that fits your needs better! Best Regards Staffan
Living in Hamburg, we got quite some rain throughout the year. This little thing literally saves my ass. A fast shipment and the fact that it is as easy to apply as shown in the instruction video keeps me in a 5-star-review mood. Dry.
I ordered three of these and immediately gifted one to my roommate. It rains like hell here, and this covers that dreaded skunktail you know you're going to get when you look out the window, as you put your bike away and flag an Uber. It's also more aesthetically pleasing than fenders and seat guards.
I lent the other one to another friend to try out, getting that word around.
Best removable mudgard I ever had. The only downpoint is that my seat doesn't leave enough room for me to bend it under so it stays "out" all the time. Aside of that, installation was simple, it's steady, and perfectly do the job. No more wet/muddy back when arriving at work, my ass is totally saved.
Easy, simple, smart, cool, elegant, unique. It keeps you "far from the muddling crowd". I have 9 of them and I regret I do not have more by cycles at hand to put them on. I start giving to friends now.
Having an ass-saver is apparently the best guarantee against rain during the trip :) 10min after finishing the heavens opened so I had very good timing.
The ass-savers are shipped in a normal well designed envelope. Super, as there is then no need to stay at home and wait for the mail man with package delivery. It just is put in the mail box.
Also the ass-saver themselves are very well designed. It is a bit fiddly to slide them under the saddle but it looks good and stays firm.
I'm really happy with this product as it is perfect for a bit of protection after the rain. My partner and I both have them on our bikes and would highly recommend them. They are easy to fit ( I have a tokyo bisou and it took seconds to attach), add no extra weight and look cool as well. Excellent product and delivery was super quick.
My girlfriend and I did a 6 day, 600km cycling tour. During one of the days it rained a lot and we had a chance to use the Ass-Savers. They worked well for the first 2 hours but then our asses started to get wet but it was because of all the rain around us and the water dripping down our backs. Great product.

One week later review :
I've finally tested the ass-saver in light rain and in wet ground yet not rainy conditions.
It works as advertised, i.e. kept my back dry.
My only complaint is that fitting it to a San Marco Light Condor saddle can be quite tricky, the ass-saver bends sideways and I can't fit it under the saddle when folded but that's no bummer as it's back in my bag in less that 2s (beware, already got one stolen because I was lazy and left it hanging beneath my saddle).
Good job guys, nice concept : simple, efficient and not too ugly :) !
Good product but doesn't fit all saddles which is a real shame. Changed to a Fizik Antares saddle... Three rides later I've lost the ass saver. Would be good to have a list of compatible saddles available before buying.

Hi Mark, The big challenge in development of the Ass Saver is the universal fitting and there are still saddles that it doesn't fit. However, the Fizik Antares should not be one of them. Sometimes it can fall of if you have not done the pre-folding correctly. Please send us an email and we will help you out of this predicament. Cheers Staffan
