The topic of bicycle fenders or mudguards is always relevant among bike owners, regardless of the type and manufacturer of the vehicle, and often causes a lot of controversy about their need. With their invention called Plume, developers Dan McMahon and Patrick Laing decided to finally put an end to this problem..
The Plume fender mounts directly to the seatpost, and its ingenious plastic and stainless steel construction allows it to be folded/unfolded as needed. In addition, when collapsed, Plume plays the role of a passive red reflector.
To start production, developers need to raise $ 18,000 on Kickstarter, more than half of the planned amount has already been collected. There is a $35 minimum pre-order for Plume, and international shipping costs are unknown.
