Plume’s sleek design can instantly coil away under your saddle when you don’t need it.
The mount is designed to slide onto standard seat post sizes between 27.2mm and 31.8mm so you can just remove the seat post and slide it on, then refit the seat post
The main mudguard is made of sprung stainless steel with a resilient, flexible silicone rubber edge.
Sprung stainless steel is resistant to rust and corrosion.
The rubber component protects you from the sharp edges of the stainless steel, and extends the width of the mudguard to increase its mud shielding capacity.
It also has a simple but effective reflector which is visible when rolled up
On the Roads
Once installed you almost don't know it is there.
It rolls out very easily and almost clicks into position. Once locked it can bounce up and down and not recoil.
The guard then offers pretty good protection due to its length and width and certainly keeps the worst of the weather off your backend.
Why we like it
Folds away when you don't need it but if it rains you can just roll it out and it’s really fun to use.

Plume was originally designed in London, where it really does rain as much as they say. The unpredictable and frequent precipitation, combined with a frustration over existing mudguard options inspired them.
After years of uphill development, Plume’s designers Dan McMahon and Patrick Laing brought a prototype to the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter, where thousands of cyclists from around the world showed their support and funded the first production run. Since then the product has evolved into what it is today.
