Remember slap-bands? Plume uses the same concept, but in the form of a simple rear fender that rolls up into a reflector, sitting snugly under your saddle when you don't need it. When the streets are wet—roll it out and ride on. Plume can protect your back from street splatter, and it’s fun to use.
Like most mudguards, Plume keeps water, chemicals, mud, and everything else that comes with post-rainstorm city streets off your back. Unlike most mudguards, Plume is super thin, and is made from incredibly resilient materials which won’t snap, crack, or bend out of shape. Plume’s minimal design compliments your bicycle, whether it’s protecting your back from street splatter or coiled up out of the way.
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 Plume to create a mudguard that would match the bicycle’s timelessness, simplicity and honest engineering. Plume has received super positive feedback from riders, and was recently nominated by the Design Museum for the Designs of the Year Award, 2014.
