This NeoGuard RIGID is specifically designed for Rigid forks whether you have a Moutainbike, Cyclo-Cross bike, or a Fat Bike this little mudguard is a must have. A rigid fork that has a notable gap above the tire allowing spray through would benefit from the NeoGuard RIGID. Just like other NeoGuard mudguards it will prevent mud and spray from the back of the front wheel being thrown up and into your face and eyes.

We have stripped out all the unnecessary weight leaving you with the lightest NeoGuard produced, and from only 7 grams for the small its also the lightest mudguard in the world!

The NeoGuard RIGID comes in 3 sizes depending on what size gap you need to block between the tyre and crown.

Fitting the NeoGuard - Rigid

  1. Wrap the 2 velcro straps at the top of the NeoGuard RIGID over and then under the lower crown and pull back through the eyelets in the guard, only loosely attach them for now, this will help keep the guard out of the way whilst you attach the bottom straps
  2. Wrap the 2 velcro straps around the fork legs and back through the eyelets as above, always ensure you DO THEM UP NICE AND TIGHT
  3. Now pull the top straps up nice and tight to ensure there is no movement checking you have around 5mm of tyre clearance
  4. Finally, YOU MUST CUT OFF THE EXCESS VELCRO AFTER FITTING mudguards/neoguard-rigid/fitting/1.png


Zip ties must be very tight to prevent movement.

It fits in under a minute and it'll do far more justice to your posh rig than that manky old bit of inner tube


The NeoGuard is a neoprene panel with velcro fastenings top and bottom to pull it taught, a neat alternative to a bodged inner tube

MBUK performance rating 10 out of 10

It stops spray from hitting you in the face which is a godsend when your racing. The best bit is when the fork compresses, it scrunches up the guard and loosens the mud. It's also lightweight and can go in the wash, a new an innovative take on mud protection

RapidRacerProducts have come up with a slick solution to an age old problem

What Magazine

RRP's NeoGuard - Product of the year? How does it fit? dead easy it took me about 30 seconds, it took longer to get out of the packet. 5 hoop and loop straps hold it tight to the lower crown and the fork brace on the sliders... then ride, get it dirty and then chuck it in the washing machine with the rest of your kit. Genius!!

Rapid Racer launch new mudguard. Rapid Racer Products has launched a new mudguard that’s lightweight, which doubles up as an advertising banner for any company / brand or race team. The neoprene guard sheds clingy mud with compression of the suspension, thus staying light due to very little dirt retention.

Bike Biz

The NeoGuard works perfectly. The rapid racing crew run a tight ship on the race circuit and saw the need for a professional product to replace the pikey tube fix. Fitting takes a few seconds, we checked everyones goggles after a recent spray-ridden run at Cwmcarn and the unsurprising result is the NeoGuard fender' is a success, keeping goggles mostly splatter free as intended. It's a very well executed solution, looks the part, and is a carefully developed product.


This ingenious piece of neoprene is soft, light and flexible and always in your toolbox. As a small bonus, it has plenty of room for sponsor logos for those head on photos where they are usually not visible.
