Foldable mudguard gets a makeover to fit more saddles

Ass Savers has introduced a redesigned foldable mudguard called (a little confusingly, given that it’s the third generation) the Ass Saver Original.

The new design replaces the previous generation SmartAss that we reviewed here on road.cc a couple of years ago. The idea of the new naming convention is that it makes room for future models in the product family from the Swedish company.

A new patent-pending attachment system allows the Ass Saver Original to fix to nearly all saddles equipped with standard rails.

Ass Savers says, “The Ass Saver Original's core function is to protect cyclists from Brown Stripe Syndrome — that embarrassing and uncomfortable dirt-caked stripe on your pants that keeps you wet all day long in the office, or the cold wet trickle flowing down between rear cheeks on training rides. It sounds funny, but it's a real predicament that anyone who has ever ridden a bicycle without mudguards in the wet already knows is a problem.”

You don’t want a dirt-caked stripe on your pants.

The new Ass Saver Original fits more saddles than before and is, according to Ass Savers, the result of feedback from hundreds of users and over half a year of prototyping.

It attaches to your saddle in seconds, and when the road dries you can fold it up and store it underneath your saddle until the next time it's needed. Over 200,000 units have already been sold by Ass Savers.

 

The Ass Saver Original comes in seven colours and is available now for €7.99 from the Ass Savers website. You can get free shipping worldwide if you but three or more. It’ll also be available in bike shops within the next month.

No joy travelling behind these types, They may have a clean arse but they're still goggle-splashers.
