Tangent fender / Road bike fender

Tangent fender

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

How can a road biker enjoy cycling without worries while rolling on wet ground? An innovative fender helps to get rid of bulky cantilever mudguards; no more dirt, drops or mud splashed on rider’s back and shorts. Features : 1. Carefree ride: no dirt hits rider's back and behind. 2. High efficiency: V-shape inner guide leads drops to flow from center to lateral directions. 3. User-friendly: patented design, can be installed with any frame and fork. 4. Super stiffness: CAE analysis makes it stiffer than existing fenders in spite of its single-arm structure. 5. Lightweight: weights only 75 grams.

This product reminds the design community of the issue of conservation of materials and of the essence of the design problem. I was taken with the beautiful form and the finish of the material. The designer’s intent and the manufacturer’s intent in the product display an understanding of the design objectives.”
