Specially engineered with wide tyres in mind, the Ass Savers Big will protect you from mud and dirt all day every day. Use it with your mountain bike, gravel bike or your daily commuter, it doesn't care! The latest Ass Saver boasts the new FLIP-TIP™ attachment system. Once fitted, just fold up the tip of the Ass Saver and it will securely lock to the saddle rails. Without doubt, this fourth revision of Ass Savers is your new best friend. Ever dependable and always there to cover your backside!
The simplicity of this design belies the fact there's thousands of brain hours behind the design of the Ass Saver, constantly refining. Below you can dig deeper into our world:
Front rail attachment
Since 2014 all Ass Savers attach to the front saddle rails only, ahead of the seat post attachment. The advantage with this solution is that saddles are more uniform in this area and we can therefore provide a proper fit to a much wider range of saddles.
Attaching only to the front rails makes the Ass Saver self centering. If you accidentally kick it without noticing, it will strive to regain it's centred position. This is one of the key innovations in saddle mudguard technology and is therefore protected under a pending patent No. SE PRV 1750201-4
Using origami principles, the patent pending FLIP-TIP™ technology allows you to securely fasten the Ass Saver to the saddle with a simple flip of the tip, just like a cycling cap. To unlock, just flip the tip back down and pull backwards.
The FLIP-TIP™ technology is fully compatible with all types of carbon saddle rails.
Saddle Bag Compatibility
The new Ass Saver is a lot easier to install with a saddle bag than previous models. While we can't guarantee a perfect fit with all saddle bags, great improvements have been made with considerably less interference as a result.
The Ass Saver has grown almost a centimetre, offering even more back protection. It should still be seen as a complement to full fenders but the extra centimetre makes a big difference up your back.
Fold For Storage
The horizontal scoring line enables you to fold the Ass Saver for easy storage in a jersey pocket or bag. To store folded underneath the saddle is also possible but requires trimming to your specific saddle. This is easily done with a pair of kitchen scissors.
The secret to transforming a flat piece of plastic into a functioning product lies in the pre-folding prior to use. All the scoring lines have been carefully engineered to achieve locking mechanisms, self centering abilities, spring loading and material endurance. Please take the time to properly read the instructions/see the instruction video to ensure the best performance.
We only use Polypropylene manufactured in Europe. Using the best quality available will ensure a long lasting and well performing Ass Saver. Lower grade plastic will easily crack or deform during use, especially when temperatures drop.
Polypropylene is one of the most common plastics and is normally used for food packaging for it's non-toxicity and ease of recycling. Most countries have a functioning recycling system for PP and our products are properly labelled to facilitate recycling.
The final products are carefully tested by an independent lab to ensure they meet the highest standards regarding toxic chemical content. All our mudguards passes both REACH and Prop 65 tests.
Packaging sucks and we avoid it as much as we can. This saves important resources in every step of the production and distribution chain and lowers the total environmental impact of our mudguards.
We manufacture all our Ass Savers in Sweden. The factory is a very modern, 14001 ISO-certified and eco award winning facility less than an hours drive from our office in Gothenburg. We are proud to say that our products are being made under some of the strictest regulations in the world regarding workers rights and environmental protection.
