Seeing as we had updated the Raceguard, we thought we might as well do a number on the Crud Catcher as well. We basically took the futuristic shape of the old ZX Crud Catcher, and crafted a soft nose on it. While we were at it we put some protective cushioning between the frame and the blade, and moved the fixing lugs to accommodate fatter frame tubes.

Easy enough to fit. The rubber fixings fouled the shifter cable and I had to fit a spacer (not supplied) to alleviate the problem

That mudguard is installed on the down tube and you have to put in the correct position in order stop mud. It is light with great durability because is very flexible. Although I had some falls the Crud Catcher didn't brake.

Защита от брызг и грязи хорошая, хотя и много меньше, чем при использовании полного крыла. Подойдет в качестве заменителя переднего крыла для не очень грязных заездов.
Качество исполнения хорошее - мягкий, обрезиненный с широкого конца пластик, минус в том, что закрепленные под рамой рубашки тросов/гидролиний будут мешать установке (щиток встанет с перекосом), т.к. в конструкции соответствующих пазов не предусмотрено. Тем не менее даже в таком случае щиток легко устанавливается с помощью комплектных резинок, минус по сравнению с использованием пластиковой монтажной ленты как в аналоге от SKS в том, что резинки со временем растянутся и все равно придется менять крепление на монтажную ленту.

Happy with this product easy to fit silent in use (no rattles) the slim new shape stops the front of your shoes from catching the guard and it stops 99% of mud, water spraying up

I have used an older version of the Crud Catcher for a while, but this is so much of an improvement - longer, lighter and looks good. Absolutely no upper body/face mud or puddle spatters on my first outing with it when there was plenty of mud to be found on a favorite route. Should note that I am using this in conjunction with a RapidRace Neoguard.

Does the job well, is sturdy and the soft rubber front edge is a good feature. If I had to be fussy, I'd say it is a bit plain looking and it doesn't quite sit straight under the tube but I'd buy one again.

Seriously good, can fit in under 1 min, I have a merida frame that's got a huge down tube and it fits like a dream and looks slick

I don't know what has happened to Crud - they used to make decent stuff, but their current range is hopeless. Don't get me started on the look-at-them-and-they-shatter road guards. I got this new front guard as part of a set with the rear; it looks good, especially in gleaming white - aesthetically a big improvement on the old model. However, if your bike has disc hose routing down the downtube this is very unlikely to fit. I also found that the more curvy front caught on my fork crown - the old model was flatter and wider with a flexible nose. Finally, the supplied rubber bands will only fit large diameter frame tubes - not my skinny steel Inbred frame, so zip ties would be the only way to install if your frame doesn't have bosses.
All in all, a virtually useless product. I'm trying Cyraguard instead.
