Our Electric Scooter Gift Guide 2021

Whether you're looking to treat yourself or your loved one, these electric scooter accessories are great gifts that will make cruising around town even more fun. At CYCL, we love the efficiency and freedom that e-scooters provide, they're a fun way to get around whether you're looking to avoid public transport, help you get that last mile or just ride around on the weekends.

Check out our list of the best electric scooter accessories that you won't want to be without.

1. Reflective Gear

Wearing reflective gear is especially important if you are riding after dusk, whether that is a reflective vest, jacket, pants, or backpack. A reflective vest, provides all round visibility from all angles and doesn't have to cost the Earth. What is also great about a reflective vest, is the convenience. All you have to do is slide the vest over your clothes, and you are set up to ensure safety on your ride! 

Don’t fancy a high visibility vest or wearable jacket? Try high visibility or fluorescent bag or backpack cover.

    2. Gloves

    Do you live somewhere where you may have chilly mornings, or even evenings? We highly recommend investing in a pair of gloves while riding your e-scooter, as you are having to hold onto the handlebars throughout your whole ride. You might want mobile-compatible gloves if you'll be using navigation on your smartphone while riding.

      3. Phone Holder

      Speaking of navigating, if you're using a smartphone to navigate you'll need a sturdy and reliable phone holder to keep it in place. The CYCL Rider Phone Holder allows 360º rotation and clamps on securely to your handlebar. For safety reasons, we suggest you do not use your phone while riding and use navigation apps with caution.

        4. Lock

        You'll probably want to take your e-scooter everywhere you go. However, if you are leaving your e-scooter outside or unattended even for a short amount of time, it’s essential to have a lock to ensure your electric scooter will stay protected. There are many locks including disc locks (that lock directly onto the wheel), U-Locks and safety cables. We highly recommend a combination of all three to act as a deterrent as well as protection for your e-scooter.

        5. Front and Rear Lights

        It is vital that people can also see you from both the front and the back while riding your e-scooter. While most e-scooters come with lights, you may want to buy additional lighting to ensure you can see and be seen to oncoming traffic and approaching on the streets and sidewalks.

        6. Helmet

        A helmet is absolutely essential when you are taking on the streets, as it protects you from potential fatal accidents. If you are keeping speeds relatively low and scootering around the city you may prefer to use a bicycle helmet. However, if you are going to be cranking up the speed to anything above 24 - 32 kmph, invest in a motorcycle helmet to give you that extra amount of safety that could save your life. You may want to consider a helmet approve by the Mips® safety system. These helmets feature a low-friction layer inside the helmet that allows multi-directional movement of 10-15mm on certain angled impacts, intended to help reduce rotational force to the head.

          7. Eye Protection

          Trust me, catching a bug to the face when riding around on your e-scooter is the LAST thing you want. Goggles, glasses, or any other piece of eye protection can all but eliminate that possibility when riding from A to B. Investing in any sort of eye protection will do, as long as it keeps the bugs out of your eyes. You may also want to consider shades for when it's bright outside, to avoid squinting and allow you to see clearly in the sunshine.

          Ashilun Googles

          8. Tire Sealant 

          If your e-scooter has pneumatic (air-filled) tyres, there will come a time that you will need to use tyre sealant. Don’t let punctures slow you down!

            9. Bell

            Another affordable addition to your e-scooter we recommend, is a bell. A bell is super useful when you are riding on the sidewalks and you want to politely get the attention of any pedestrians to warn them of your presence. We believe it is much more effective to warn pedestrians with a bell, rather than use your voice, as it may startle others trying to enjoy their walk, run, etc.

              10. Winglights 360

              WingLights are indicators and position lights that fit into the handlebars of your e-scooter. With one touch, WingLights flash bright amber signalling your intention to turn and prevent potentially dangerous situations. WingLights 360 also have a permanent always-on position light feature with white forward facing lights and red rear facing lights to enhance all round 360º visibility whilst riding. Since the rear lights on e-scooters are the bottom of the body there are often difficult for other road users to see. With WingLights 360 the lights are positioned close to other road users’ line of vision and therefore will help improve the riders’ visibility making their presence known.
