If you’re someone who lives in a city which doesn’t enjoy the best weather conditions, and ride along wet and muddy roads and bike lanes without a back wheel fender, chances are, that by the time you arrive at your destination, a tell tale straight line of mud or water will have formed all the way up your back.

Slovenian product designer Jurij Lozić has now created Musguard, the ideal solution to prevent this wet 'souvenir'; a removable, rollable Polypropylene bicycle fender which fits perfectly around most frames. Weighing a mere 35gr, when not in use it can easily be stored in your pocket, bag or even rolled around your bicycle’s crossbar. It’s easy to attach, no extra tools are needed, completely removable and above all durable!

As you can see for yourself, the designer has not only managed to create a simple, minimal and elegant solution for a ''clean back'' while riding a bike… he has given birth to a very smart concept, presenting it through amazing imagery and video demonstrations which have enraptured not only the Yatzer eye but thousands of backers on kickstarter who have helped Lozić triple his fund-target from the very first day.

    A simple, efficient, elegant idea. Startling auto-play video with loud techno, not so much.
