You know the backside of the minimalistic mud guard underneath the saddle going easy to the side or loose? And how to install a rear light properly to (aero) seat posts? For CloseTheGap's engineering team this was the challenge to improve their products to the next level. So they developed the best cycling experience to be safe, in comfort and in style: welcome to CoverMyBack.
You can split the CoverMyBack in 3 pieces: the universal light adapter, saddle rail mount and the mud guard. The mount with the light adapter places every rear light in the best possible position: at driver eye height. You can install and remove the mud guard in a second thanks to the click lock.
Can I still use my saddle bag?
This depends on the design of your saddle bag. If the straps are long enough this should be no problem. If the bag is really close to the saddle or the bag is installed with a clamp to the saddle rail the combo with CoverMyBack will not fit.
Is the adapter suitable for all saddle rails?
The clamp is fitting a range from 7 - 9 mm saddle rails. So the standard round size and oversized carbon rails are no problem.
The maximum in between distance is 66 mm. So the most standard saddle rail designs will fit. Above the saddle rail at least 8 millimeter free space is needed to install the CoverMyBack adapter.
Is the angle of the light beam no problem?
Standard saddles with a rail angle of 70 - 80 degrees at the back are compatible with adaptor. Saddle rails which are real flat or have less space as 1 centimeter between the rail and saddle cover are not compatible.
Is the mudguard fitting strong enough for off-road?
The mount is designed strong enough to withstand challenging off-road use.
