I spotted this product for the first time the other day on Pedal Consumption. The Plume Mud Guard is a cool take on a removable bicycle fender. They are about to launch their kickstarter campaign and we wish them the best of luck. I definitely think from a design perspective this is way better than the Ass Saver.
LET'S MAKE A BETTER MUDGUARD
Plume is a recoiling bicycle mudguard. It hides in plain sight, and still looks great when it's covered in mud. We're pretty excited about this.
Today, many mudguards are made from chunky, brittle plastic. They suck the life out of your bicycle and then they break. We're not trying to be debbie downers here, but something needs to change.
Allow us to introduce Plume. Built from resilient materials like stainless steel, Plume will stay loyal for years. And when the ground is dry, it can recoil into a small circle under your saddle.
It's also super fun to use.
