Keep your eye on the trail with the Race Face Mud Crutch. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone out riding and it’s super sloppy out. That’s bad news, especially when you wear contacts. Any little piece of mud getting in your eye when you’re traveling mock-ten downhill spells disaster. Trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve tried my fair share of solutions (including full fenders); even going as far as purchasing some old school goggles to no avail. Finally, Race Face has come up with a solution that is new for 2013 that stops the little sneaky trajectories headed for your grill. Made of durable Mylar-laced woven elastic and Lycra, it compresses and shrinks, conforming to your shock’s every move. The Mud Crutch creates a small but light barrier that won’t rub on your tire, like back in the day when you used to place cards in the spokes. Get em here.
