Mudguard comes off and rolls up when the roads are dry

We’ve seen a bicycle mudguard that detaches from the bike and folds up when not in use, along with one that stays attached but rolls up when not needed. Created by Slovenian product designer Jurij Lozić, the Musguard offers features of both – it’s easy to put on and take off, and rolls up for stowage in a pack or pocket.
The Musguard is made from die-cut polypropylene, which folds into shape once unrolled. It’s secured to the bike’s seat tube using a simple Velcro strap, and can be attached or detached in seconds.
Lozić is currently raising production funds on Kickstarter, and at the time of this posting has more than tripled his financial goal. A pledge of US$25 will get you a Musguard in your choice of five colors, once they’re available.
The mudguard can be seen in use in the video below. A front fender is reportedly also in the works.
