Must-Have Accessories for Cyclists

Electric bikes have transformed the cycling world, offering new possibilities and opportunities. Elevate your e-biking experience with essential accessories designed to make the most of your e-biking experience. Some must-have accessories for every cyclist include:


When it comes to biking, safety should always be a top priority. Bike helmets are essential gear, whether you’re riding conventional bicycles or electric bikes. They provide vital protection, helping safeguard against head injuries in case of accidents.

Experience ultimate protection and style on your e-bike journey with the Bern Hudson MIPS Matte Turquoise helmet. Certified with NTA 8776 E-bike and rated 5 S.T.A.R. by Virginia Tech, it’s designed for speeds up to 28 mph. Equipped with a 6.6 Lumen Click-Mount LED light, reinforced U-lock vents and 13 strategically placed vents for maximum comfort.

Child seats

A secure child seat is critical for cyclists who want to include their children in their e-biking adventures. Make sure to choose one that is compatible with the design and power capabilities of electric bikes.

The Burley Dash Rack Mount Child Seat is the perfect choice for secure and comfortable family bike rides. With its durable construction, washable padding and tool-free installation, this seat offers convenience and longevity. The adjustable 5-point harness provides optimal safety and can support children up to 40 lbs.


With approximately two million bikes stolen across the U.S. each year, including used electric bikes, securing your e-bike with a reliable lock is essential to protect your investment against theft.

The Kryptonite New York LS U-Lock sets the bar for top-level bike security. Featuring a 16 mm hardened MAX-Performance steel shackle with a double deadbolt design, it offers unmatched strength. The lock’s disc-style cylinder is drill and resistant and it comes with three stainless steel keys, including an LED lighted key for convenience. With a patented STEEL SLEEVE over the crossbar, this U-lock ensures double security and peace of mind.

Baskets and panniers

Electric bikes often involve longer rides or commutes and having practical storage solutions such as baskets and panniers can make the journey more convenient. These are ideal for carrying personal items, shopping bags or picnic supplies for a fun outing.

The Basil Urban Dry Shopper is a versatile pannier bag with a 25-liter capacity. Its stylish accents, made from vegan leather, add a touch of sophistication. With easy mounting and dismounting using Basil’s hook-on system, it’s perfect for quick trips to the store.


Specialized bags for cyclists, such as saddlebags or handlebar bags, are helpful for those longer rides or tours on electric bikes. They offer easy-to-reach storage for essentials like water, snacks or repair kits.

The Lizard Skins Super Cache Seat Bag is the ultimate companion for your epic rides. Constructed with water-resistant 1000D material and a durable YKK zipper, it offers ample storage space and interior divisions for all your essentials. The no-snag Velcro and Amara leather prevent abrasion, ensuring hassle-free access.

Smartphone holder

With many affordable electric bikes now offering Bluetooth connectivity and dedicated apps for tracking ride data, a sturdy smartphone holder can be a crucial accessory. It provides easy access to navigation, fitness tracking or your e-bike’s own app while on the move.

The Delta XL Smartphone Phone Holder offers a secure solution for mounting large phones and tablets on handlebars or stems. Ideal for road and commuter use, it provides easy access to your device.


Safety and visibility are just as crucial on electric bikes as on traditional bikes. High-quality front and rear lights are essential electric bike accessories, especially for rides in low-light conditions or at night.

The Lezyne Femto Drive Headlight and Taillight Set ensure optimal safety and visibility. The ultra-compact Femto Drive Rear features a conveniently integrated lens on/off switch. With its CNC-machined aluminum construction, it guarantees durability. The Side Visibility Lens extends beyond the body, offering an impressive 180° of visibility.
