As the gravel segment expands, cyclists face new challenges. The issue of having dirt thrown in your face is a well known problem among mountain bikers. With huge clearances for 650B and 700c tires in the front fork, gravel riders are now facing a similar issue.

"This one is a win for sure. ...it seems to outperform every other mini front fender I have tried." Cory Benson, Bikerumor

While mountain bikers are used to mud, gravel bikers face a different challenge. Anyone who has ridden on a wet gravel road is familiar with the mixture of fine sand and water that seems to be designed especially to seek and destroy bearings, not to mention what it does to your eyes on a long ride.

The MUDDER Mini is here to offer relief for your face and headset bearing. Simply mount it to your fork legs just above your front tire and you will dramatically reduce the amount of spray in the critical areas. The MUDDER Mini attaches with innovative adjustable anti-slip straps to guarantee an instant and perfect fit on all fork sizes. Please make sure you have at least 8 mm side clearance between fork blade and tire wall in order to safely fit the MUDDER Mini. 

Combine the MUDDER Mini with a FENDOR BENDOR Big or  ASS SAVER Big for a full front and rear protection kit!

Technical data

Measures: 90 x170 mm (effective)
Weight: 21 g
Material: 0.8 mm PP (Polypropylene)

The MUDDER Mini will fit all gravel/cx forks with clearance for tire widths between 32 mm up to 55 mm. It will not work on a road fork with narrow clearance or for fat bikes. The correct position is about 10 mm above the tire. Aligning the position to the tire and not the fork crown increases efficiency and is made possible by our custom hook and loop straps. Make sure that the mudguard doesn't touch your down tube when turning the handlebar.

This mudguard is specifically designed to block dirt from being thrown forward and potentially impair your vision during high speed riding and the wellness of your lower headset bearings. It will not protect you from general spray coming from your front tire or your feet and lower legs.

Adjustable anti-slip 2-in-1 hook and loop straps 
The specially designed straps have enough friction to prevent the mudguard from sliding down on a conic fork leg. However, it needs to be tighten firmly to stay up. The open ended design of the strap will allow you to adjust the length and thereby center the position of the ASS SAVERS logo on the fork leg. You can also inverse the strap if you prefer to have a no-logo appearance. 

The secret to transforming a flat piece of plastic into a functioning product lies in the pre-folding prior to use. All the scoring lines have been carefully engineered to achieve locking mechanisms, self centering abilities, spring loading and material endurance. Please take the time to properly read the instructions to ensure the best performance.

Face saver

My Win Wing saves my ass, while this one saves my face, more specifically, saves me from literally eating dirt.

Fits like a glove

Fits perfectly to my Canyon Grizl.

Why didn’t I buy this earlier?!?!

For years I’ve stuffed around with metal mudguards that come loose and don’t fit. My local bike store introduced me to Ass Savers and I can’t be how versatile their range is. This muddier mini is perfect for my new Surly.

Excellent ~

Fits perfectly 2 my 650/b 50mm tyres.

Too early to tell yet

I bought this for a brand new Specialized Crux. Unfortunately, the brand new rear wheel is not round and the bike wobbles like crazy at about 30-40 kph. So I have the bike, but no rear wheel for 2 weeks now! Once my brand new bike is fixed I'll fit the Mudder Mini, then pray for rain so I can test it... But I'm sure it will be wonderful!
