Weighing in at only 80g but measuring 450mm in length, the FRX provides awesome mud/spray stopping performance without breaking the bank. With various holes for fitting to different fork suspenders the FRX Hugger is suitable for all wheel sizes, 26er, 650B and 29er wheel. It also works on Plus wheels with tires up to 3 inches wide in a ‘Boost’ fork. For the ultimate protection on your bike add a front Hugger MAX extension.
The 3 holes used to attach the extender are now preformed (although skinned over so if you don't need them they are invisible from the outside) just pop through with a small screwdriver (4mm diameter or less) or similar and you're ready to go.
(We strongly recommend using helitape or similar to protect the paint on the seat stays and brace, the FRX doesn't come with tape)
You will see (if you look closely enough, they are very stealthy once fitted) FRX Huggers in use at many Downhill and Enduro races around the world most weekends. From the likes of tomorrow’s champs in the Rippers category to 4 times World Champion Loic Bruni, along with team mates Finn Iles, 2016 Junior World Champ, who choose to run the FRX when the conditions require maximum mud protection.
We are often asked if the Huggers can be fitted to Manitou forks with the reverse fork brace. The answer is yes! By ignoring the reverse fork brace altogether and using extra zipper ties on the fork legs the Hugger performs just as well as on any other fork.
General rule is that if you can get your index finger between the fork brace and top of the tire there is enough clearance to fit to your bike.
Want a mini rear Hugger like Sam Hill? (to protect bike, not rider)
Sam has run an FRX Hugger with the nose cut off (can be cut down with kitchen scissors) and then ziptied to the seat stays and brace. SIMPLE :)
