Castelli Launches "Ass-Savers" Bike Fender

Sometimes it’s the simplest and dorkiest of devices serve the greatest purpose. After all, your slick looking "kit" and helmet won’t keep your arse dry will it ? Hey, even the pros are using it.  

From Castelli 

In corporation with five Swedish designers based out of Gothenburg, we can now proudly unveil the official Castelli Ass-Saver, featuring a sleek design, low weight, easy fitting, 100% recycled and recyclable.

The Ass-Saver fits nicely onto the rails of your saddle without any tools or fittings. When it stops raining, simply fold it up and store it underneath your saddle.

Its a simple and reasonably effective solution to keeping road spray from soaking your bum when riding in the rain. It’s not going to protect you 100%, but it’s a good first defense and does go a long way to keeping you drier. What’s more, it can be quickly removed and folded in half when you don’t need it.

Black unbadged Castelli Gabba WS Jerseys and Ass-Savers were in use to beat the elements during a wet and cold Milan-SanRemo this year, and later in many of the other rainy early season races. This lightweight and simple piece of plastic will soon become your best friend when the roads are wet.
