As a Pacific Northwestener, I ride in wet weather a lot, and have tried just about every type of fender or mudguard on the market. For years, I also had a dedicated rain bike –a road bike outfitted with wider tires and heavy, full-coverage fenders– that saw me through the long, dreadful days of winter base mile training. But I ride a variety of disciples throughout the year, so I need a wet-riding solution that can easily be attached, removed, and swapped between bikes. As such, I've tried a variety of products in the Ass Savers line of cheap yet effective clip-on fenders (mudguards)

The Swedish company specializes in creating a variety of cleverly devised, minimalist clip-on fenders for the rear and front of bicycles. The brand got its start in 2011 with a Kickstarter campaign for what ultimately became the ubiquitous wedge of plastic that one attached in between the saddle rails to, well, keep your ass safe from road- and tire spray.
