Muckynutz Bender Fender
The patent pending Bender Fender has evolved once again, taking onboard the feedback from you, this one replaces the 2.1 version. It is the same thickness and weight as the 2.1, at 22g (including fasteners), but is now 16% longer, so provides even more protection. We've done this by taking away material from non-critical areas and dumping it where it's needed, i.e. between you and the rubber.
As with the BF2.1 this improved fender is well suited to tackling a fall or those pesky pine cones, when they get pulled through by the wheel. So if you prefer the downhill or wooden trail this is the one for you.
If you want even more protection; try out the Bender Fender (XL), or you're a bit of a weight weenie; go with the Bender Fender (Lite), i.e. the lightest mudguard available, and save 6g.
