A Tyre Hugger is a specially designed fender extension that attaches to the rear fender of a motorcycle, providing additional coverage and protection to the rear wheel. It is commonly made of durable materials such as ABS plastic or carbon fiber to withstand the rigors of the road. The primary purpose of a Tyre Hugger is to minimize the spray of water, mud, and debris from the rear wheel, preventing it from reaching the rider, passenger, and the bike’s components.
Splash Protection: One of the primary functions of a Tyre Hugger is to protect the rider and motorcycle from water, mud, and road debris thrown up by the rear wheel. This is especially important in wet or muddy conditions, enhancing rider comfort and preserving the bike’s cleanliness.
Component Shielding: The Tyre Hugger helps in shielding critical components, such as the shock absorber and exhaust system, from debris impact. This can extend the life of these components and reduce the maintenance requirements.
