Euro Style MarshGuard Mud Fender Available in US

Gear recently visited the guys at Art’s Cyclery for a look at their facility and to meet the guys behind the shop. We will have a full write-up and photos about Art’s Cyclery’s amazing operation soon. But, one of the cool things we learned is that is now the US importer of MarshGuard products including the slick looking MarshGuard mud fender.

Not so widely known in the US (yet), MarshGuard is a Europe-based company and their fork mounted mudguards can be seen on current UCI World Cup Downhill racers as well as Enduro World Series rigs. They were designed by Greg Minnaar’s World Cup DH race mechanic, Jason Marsh. It is a very simple and effective lightweight fender weighing in at 32 grams with an MSRP of $14.

The MarshGuard features:

  • Actual weight 32 grams (without zip ties)
  • Zip ties included with fender
  • Designed by World Cup DH mechanic Jason Marsh
  • The choice of World Cup racers

    Cool idea. But perhaps we could simply recycle some plastic for free that we would otherwise simply throw away e.g. carving up a spent milk jug.

  • Markus says:

    Gregg, sorry but you should be promoting the company that invented this product a few years earlier i.e. Mucky Nutz. Their products are the originals and used by all, from grass root riders to pro DH and Enduro riders, alike. Check out, all facts and figures are there.

  • Kurtis says:

    Totally agree with Markus. I bought Mucky Nutz.

  • Jerry says:

    MarshGuard, Mucknutz, or milk jug, the will keep your fork seals clean. Worth it for that alone. Bonus for Enduro looks.

  • the-one1 says:

    Markus, this is not a review for Marshguard, it’s an ad. If it were a review, they’d mentioned MuckyNutz, the original and compare the two. This spot was bought and paid for.

    I have a mucky nutz on my dh rig. I got it off eBay and they raped me on the shipping from the uk. But it works great, don’t know why it wasn’t thought of sooner.

  • Gregg Kato says:

    Thanks for the tip about MuckyNutz, we will be sure to check them out. I personally used the old THE fenders back in the day, plastic made to look like carbon fiber. They were quite the rage back then. And several of my friends have used the two liter bottle method for years. This “spot” was not bought and paid for, but Art’s Cyclery is an advertiser on our site that helps us keep free for all.

    Perhaps the review of a product should include some information about how it performs – looks small to me. Does it block some/most/all of the spray?

    • Hill-Pumper says:

      The purpose of this type of fender is to keep mud from flying forward off the front tire, and blowing back into your face. They work well for this. If you want to keep more of the spray off, use a fender like this along with a down tube mounted fender (ie, Crud Catcher)

  • r1Gel says:

    +1 on Mucky Nutz. Still awfully expensive for what it is though.

  • Jason says:

    $14 is a good price and saves you the time of trial and error to come up with your own design.

  • luis says:

    I personally like looking like me and my bike hit the trails hard!…… 🙂

  • Tee McGee says:

    There’s not much to separate the two, but I prefer Mucky Nutz because they use a hook-and-loop fastening system, doing away with the need for single-use zip ties.
