In this article, we will examine all the essential accessories to complete your bike so that you can fully enjoy your ride through the city.
Protect yourself with a helmet
The first accessory not to be neglected, whatever your cycling practices, is the helmet. Indeed, it is very important to wear a helmet to protect yourself in case of a fall. When looking to buy a helmet, consider several important criteria.
First, make sure that the helmet is CE EN 1078 (European Standards) approved and that it has the right head size, then choose a model that suits you according to the following criteria:
A helmet with/without visor
A light or robust helmet
A helmet with replaceable interior foam
A ventilated helmet for riding in hot weather
Helmets can be customized with stickers, caps and even tinted lenses. Finally, choose a helmet that gives you satisfaction. That means it should be comfortable to wear and not get in your way when you ride.
We recommend the following brands:
Protect your lungs with a mask
It's often difficult to combine a mask with comfort. But finding a mask that allows you to breathe naturally and is comfortable for your skin will make your commute feel like a whole new experience.
This is what we offer at R-PUR, a mask that becomes your daily companion to protect what matters most, your health.
You can discover our Nano S anti pollution mask dedicated to cycling.
Don't forget to install an anti-theft device
Your bike is a fragile and expensive object. It is therefore essential to invest in an anti-theft device to protect your bike against theft.
There are different types of locks:
U-locks (keyed locks)
folding locks and long chains.
Each type of lock has its advantages and disadvantages: the U-lock is cheap and easy to use, but less secure.
The folding lock is very strong, but bulkier and heavier, and the chain is very strong and can be attached to two fixed points.
Make sure you choose a lock that meets your expectations in terms of security, convenience and reliability.
Carry your stuff with a bag
Whether you need to carry documents, tools or groceries, panniers are a must for cyclists.
They come in a variety of sizes and materials and are easy to install on your bike. Side panniers are perfect for small items such as keys and wallet, while rear panniers can hold up to 25 liters.
Some panniers are waterproof and even have reflective strips for better visibility at night.
In addition, for the discerning cyclist, some brands offer ergonomic panniers that are designed for maximum comfort.
Light your way with good lighting
When riding at night, good lighting is essential to see and be seen. The market currently offers high-performance lighting systems with powerful LEDs and batteries capable of providing up to 50 hours of autonomy.
Opt for lights with several lighting modes to adapt the power to the ambient light and make sure to choose lights that fit your type of bike (mountain bike, city). Also remember to check the compatibility of batteries and chargers.
In conclusion, to complete your bike in order to ride safely and comfortably, don't forget to buy a helmet, a mask, an anti-theft device, a pannier and a good lighting system.
Don't wait any longer and start riding!
