Crud Catcher front mudguard – RRP £11.99

It’s the most ubiquitous bit of plastic in mountain biking, and continues to be the most popular mudguard used by mountain bikers.

Now up to its ninth edition, the latest Crud Catcher has grown a lot in length, gained a soft nose and is a lot sleeker than previous versions. And is all the better for it.

It’s extremely easy to install. A pair of rubber O-rings clasps the Crud Catcher to the down tube, with a selection of rings supplied in case your frame has a decidedly small or large downtube. A rubbery Crud logo sits between the frame and mudguard preventing scratches and stops it shifting about.

At this time of year you’re a brave person to hit the muddy trails without some sort of mudguard, and the Crud Catcher continues to work better than most others out there.


Simple, light and effective at keeping mud out of your eyes.

Buy now at Mpora Gear.

    Best thing to keep crap off your waterbottle as well.

    Yeah till you turn your handlebars which happens a lot on MTBs .

    this crud catcher coupled with an RPR neoprene fork mounted guard is an excellent combo – highly recommended.

    Having seen the review for the Bender Fender – it says they use this instead on the Crud Catcher now….. I currently use both and get NOTHING in the face as a result, even when turning the bars, since the Fender Bender turns along with the front-end.

    My Crud Catcher always has lots of gunk stuck on it after a wet ride, so I am intrigued to see if you really can remove it, when using a Fender bender …. won’t all that stuff stuck to it end up on me instead !!??

    Anyone else tried with just the one yet ??
