New Ass-Savers Extended Fender

I love using an Ass-Saver when it decides to rain in Texas and now, I’ll be using one of the new Extended versions on my road bike. The Ass-Savers Extended adds over an inch of length, which in terms of spray, is a large reduction. Even the Rapha Condor JLT team have adopted this platform.
In stock now at the Ass-Savers Extended site.
The Ass Savers Brookshield is Lightweight and Easy
I hate fenders and as a Texan, that is ok. The rainy days to sunny days ratio is skewed. We’re in an extreme drought, so why would I put fenders on my Geekhouse Frontage Road Tourer? Pffft….
That said, I hate getting sprayed up the ‘crack with dirty water from the road when we do get a moist morning. Which is why I love the Ass Savers Brookshield.

Ass Savers for Red Hook Crit
As I’ve said before, Ass Savers makes a damn good fender and these special edition Red Hook Crit models are rad!
“For the 2014 Red Hook Crit season, Ass Savers and Red Hook Crit have out done themselves and created three brand new designs based on the newly released Ass Saver Original model. For each race in Brooklyn, Barcelona and Milan, a unique design will be released in a limited series. The designs have been created in collaboration with Red Hook Crit’s creative director Jonah Birns and are a tribute to the motorsports era of the 70s.”

The New Ass Savers Original
We’ve had quite the rainy winter in Austin and rather than put fenders on my touring bike, I’ve been popping on an Ass Savers when I have to run errands. When I received a prototype of the new Ass Savers Original, I could really notice a difference in usability… now, which color should I get?
