The Detour Kollection is a call for exploring, a tribute to those who finds a roadblock as the mark of something great ahead, rather than a dead end.
Most bikepacking gear is not 100% waterproof and a good set of fenders can save you from the misery of having a wet sleeping bag or clothes at the end of the day. Even if your gear is fully waterproof, you will appreciate the lack of mud on your bags when you stop to get a jacket out or when you bring them into the tent after a rough day in the saddle. The full kit adds less than 85 grams to your total weight, making it ideal for ultralight bikepacking.
Visually, the Detour Kollection is inspired by the mind-blowing scenery of the Torino-Nice Rally, a 700 km selfsustained bikepacking event in the French-Italian alps. During the 2018 edition, designer Jesper Jonsson and Ass Savers founder Staffan Widell shared a bivouac on the last night of the event, overlooking a spectacular sunset over the last mountain range before the finish in Nice.
FENDOR BENDOR Big is ideal for bikepacking. Strong enough to handle really muddy conditions but flexible enough to not break while being bashed around. The width is optimized for tire sizes commonly used by gravel cyclists. Mounted close to the rear tire it will protect your saddle bag as well as the rider from road muck and water. It attaches to virtually any bike in seconds, without the use of tools.

The FENDOR BENDOR Big gets the dirty job done. The all new attachment makes fitting without tools a breeze, to virtually every bike in just a few seconds.
Universal fit: With the newly developed attachment construction, FENDOR BENDOR Big is now completely self supported and therefore possible to mount on bikes without the sideway support of the seat stays or the support of a brake bridge. You could also mount it above your caliper brake to avoid interference with the brake.
For the rough stuff: It has been developed for gravel and adventure biking but is also a great protector for CX and Mountain Bikes. With greater length and width, it's well suited for the longer wheelbase normally associated with this segment of bikes. A single midway fold still allows for convenient minimal storage but with maximum sturdiness for the rocky roads ahead.
Frame protection by 3M: Both models come with upgraded frame protection stickers from 3M. A material originally developed to protect the helicopter propeller blades from the sand storms in the desert, it makes sure that no scratches will be made to your beloved bike by the FENDOR BENDOR.
Fit: The Fendor Bendor fits all frames with standard seat stays. It's self supportive and doesn't require support from the brake bridge or the seat stays. It can also be mounted directly on a seat post (as low as possible for best effect). The Fendor Bendor will not fit if you have monostay frame or center pull brake.
Prefold: The scoring lines along the fender need to be folded hard in order to give the it the necessary rigidity and strength. Take extra care to fold down the outer edges to make sure your Fendor Bendor is functioning properly.
Frame protection: Each Fendor Bendor is delivered with a small set of transparent 3M polyurethane protection stickers. Use these to protect your seat stays from scratches from the fender.
Storage: The Fendor Bendor Big can be folded in half for easy storage in a backpack or strapped on your bikepacking gear.
