Nothing is more essential even among bike accessories than a helmet.
Whether wearing a helmet is a law in your area or not, it’s your responsibility to protect yourself from head injuries. Even if you’re a professional cyclist, you should always wear a helmet because there’s no telling when a mishap would occur that could endanger your life. Besides, no matter how careful you are on the road, there are other motorists or pedestrians out there that could cause accidents, so it’s best to be prepared for unexpected scenarios.
These bike accessories can be your lifesaver, especially at night when it’s hard to see for both pedestrians and motorists who are on the road. If your bike doesn’t have any of these, consider installing them now.
There are several ways to illuminate your bike. You can put reflectors on the tire spokes, put on pedal strips, or install LED rear lights. But before doing any of these, check first with the local guidelines in your area to see if there are any restrictions in placing reflectorized bike accessories.
Whether you’re a serious cyclist or a hobbyist, it’s always better to head out with a complete cycling outfit suitable for your adventure. Check out the following items below and see if anything is missing in your cycling wardrobe:
Shoes are crucial in providing comfort, increasing safety, and improving performance. The things to look for when choosing a cycling shoe are its cleats, fastening mechanism, shape, size, stiffness, and ventilation.
One of the top bike accessories you must never forget is your refillable water bottle.
WRAPTIE™ believes that all single-use plastic is wasteful so try and avoid buying bottled water along the way. But the dangers of dehydration are real and not to be underestimated, so it’s best to bring more than enough to keep you hydrated.
To avoid dehydration, drink water at least every twenty minutes. The interval varies though according to the difficulty of the trail or the condition of the environment.
It is possible to sweat more than 1 or 2 litres per hour when it is hot or the ride is tough, so always pack a water bottle that’s bigger than you think you need, or plan to refill along the route.
One of the essential bike accessories that you should never forget is a saddlebag. Saddlebags are great for storing the basics, including your multi-tool, , spare inner tube, portable bike pump, phone, wallet, and cards.
If you don't have a saddlebag then try one of our WRAPTIE™ SPORT 90 straps, perfect for wrapping the essentials up nice and tight.
Make sure the saddlebag doesn’t affect the weight distribution on your bike. It should have sufficient space with a good number of pockets, but not too large that it will move around while you’re on the road.
A loose bolt, a wobbly seat, dislodged chains – anything could happen while you’re on the road. Without tools to repair these things, you’ll be left helpless, hoping you’ll chance upon a good Samaritan who’s more equipped with the tools you need.
Make sure you pick a tool that is lightweight and easy to fit inside your pocket or saddlebag such as the WRAPTIE™ multi-tool here.
Bells are great as a warning device for you and everyone around. Use it to signal motorists and pedestrians that you’re passing through.
Bells are inexpensive, unobtrusive, and practical, which is why they’re one of the top bike accessories to have. Make sure to choose a bell that’s loud enough to be heard and makes you look cool.
A bike pump is one of the top bike accessories you must have at home for your bicycle maintenance. Always check the tire pressure on your bike before you take it out for a ride.
There are 3 types of tyre fittings though, Presta, Woods and Schrader, so make sure you choose the right type!
When you’ve spent so much on a good bike, it’s logical to not skimp on security. A bike lock is one of the top bike accessories you should invest in because it can deter bicycle thieves from taking interest in your ride.
The kind of bike lock you need will depend on how tough your neighborhood is. If you live in an area with a low crime rate, cable locks will do. But if you’re in a rough area, you need a tougher bike lock like chain locks or U-locks.
Bike rentals will usually provide you with a lock, but you should always bring your own as an additional safety measure.
Most cyclists use bungee cords to secure gear to their bikes. Bungee cords can be dangerous if the hook hits you in the face, can damage your possessions or bike and come loose at any time! We think they are kind of crappy.
Which is why we completely redesigned the way bungee cords work with the WRAPTIE™ SPORTS straps, designed for cyclists and bikers.
The WRAPTIE™ SPORTS strap doesn’t use hooks or buckles. Its unique fastening system lets you easily adjust how tight you need to go to secure the load.
The WRAPTIE™ SPORTS straps are flexible, durable, reusable, lightweight, tidy, and most of all affordable – it simply has everything you need for a tie-down strap. You can easily fit it inside your pocket or saddlebag, ready for your next adventure.
