Our Collection Series is a brand new project and the first Collaborator is Swedish illustrator "MANDER. Martin Ander has created a name for himself as a unique artist with an eye for details. The style is deeply rooted in 70's comics, mashed up with graffiti and dark humor references. Martins work includes everything from underground club flyers to doctors dissertations. In recent years, his sharp pen has caused quite some international star and some of his latest work features album covers for hip-hop legend KRS-One and t-shirt prints for the synthesizer gurus at MOOG.
"We love the quirky details in his artworks and his precision in the selection of objects and contexts. There's always an extra layer of twisted hints that doesn't show at first sight. In our opinion, it's the storytelling qualities that makes Martin a great illustrator and not only a perfectionist executor of style." Staffan Weigel, founder Ass Savers
"I have always had respect for companies that have an aesthetic thought with their products. After my first conversation with Ass Savers, I immediately understood that we will be able to create magic together. I am proud to present my work for the cycling world through Ass Savers mudguards." Martin Ander, illustrator.
Front rail attachment
Since 2014 all Ass Savers attach to the front saddle rails only, ahead of the seat post attachment. The advantage with this solution is that saddles are more uniform in this area and we can, therefore, provide a proper fit to a much wider range of saddles. Attaching only to the front rails makes the Ass Saver self-centering. If you accidentally kick it without noticing, it will strive to regain it's centered position. This is one of the key innovations in saddle mudguard technology and is therefore protected under a pending patent No. SE PRV 1750201-4
Using origami principles, the patent pending FLIP-TIP™ technology allows you to securely fasten the Ass Saver to the saddle with a simple flip of the tip, just like a cycling cap. To unlock, just flip the tip back down and pull backward. Carbon rails The FLIP-TIP® technology is fully compatible with all types of carbon saddle rails.
The new Ass Saver is a lot easier to install with a saddle bag than previous models. While we can't guarantee a perfect fit with all saddle bags, great improvements have been made with considerably less interference as a result.
The secret to transforming a flat piece of plastic into a functioning product lies in the pre-folding prior to use. All the scoring lines have been carefully engineered to achieve locking mechanisms, self-centering abilities, spring loading and material endurance. Please take the time to properly read the instructions/see the instruction video to ensure the best performance.
