Plume Recoiling Fender

Being a child of the early ’80s I remember the slap-bracelet fad well, and can’t help but see the similarity between them and the Plume recoiling fender. It easily snaps into fender mode and coils up when not in use, though I question if it will recoil over potholes or curbs. This Kickstarter project qucikly reached its funding goal, but there is still time to sign up at the $35 level for one of the first run if you like the idea.

    just fit some proper mudguards and be done with it , that ‘thing ‘ may well satisfy certain peoples urges to reach behind themselves and put their fingers in rings but i highly doubt its abilities as a mudguard. ;-b

    In the video it seems like the flap is far too distant from the tire which means a lot of what is being tossed up wet mud rain, etc, is not being contained all that well .
    I thinkmthenproduct could be better if it fit to the frame instead of the seat post.
