Mudflaps can make a huge difference to your winter group cycle rides. Most mudguards finish half way down the back wheel, which means you stay dry but spray still hits the rider behind. Adding a mudflap catches that spray and everyone gets home (relatively) clean. All that expensive winter kit doesn't need washing each time, therefore extending its life. More importantly, you don't have a face covered in road dirt, which can only be a good thing. Once everyone in your group has a mudflap, you'll hate anyone who turns up without one.
As you're protecting those behind, you may as well protect yourself and your bike too. The front flap can greatly reduce the amount of mud and spray hitting your feet and the bottom bracket. When fitted as pair, the mudflaps provide a stylish finishing touch to your bike.
RAW mudflap came to life in October 2015 as a plain plastic back flap sold on eBay. After promising early sales the RAW brand was established and the logo and reflective strips added for added visibility at night. Coloured flaps, including fluorescent and reflective, came along soon after, as well as the matching front flap and now RAW mudflaps can be seen up and down the UK, as well as a few in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Australia. Custom or club flaps are an exciting new addition for winter 2016 as well as a new range of sizes.

The flaps are made from a flexible plastic that is durable and rigid enough to keep the spray off riders behind, even at high speed. In British cycling club folklore, people tend to make these themselves and it normally involves a lot of failed experiments. The RAW mudflap is no different, it is the result of the same experimentation process over many years to reach its current form.
The sleek design comes in an unrivalled range of colours while the custom printed design for your club or group offers the possibility to print in any number of colours with a minimum order of just 10 flaps.
