As technology improves and advances with time, improvements in cycling have given cyclists a safer and more comfortable ride. However, while areas such as suspension and braking have seen breakthrough technologies and advancements, one fundamental area has been neglected: fenders. Enter  Bamboobee’s Mandy Fender. The Mandy Fender has a patent pending memory film that not only scales down unnecessary space for packing and shipping, but it also reduces the carbon footprint needed to store and transport the fenders. The ground-up build-it-yourself design can fit any bike and has the unique feature of being able to easily transfer between different bikes. It also eliminates a significant waste of resources in terms of manufacturing the many types of fenders to suit the different design of many bikes. Inefficiency has brought a high amount of waste to the industry, and Bamboobee mitigates that problem while looking good doing it.
