If you're looking to add a bit of zest to your commute, an e-bike can be a great option. But if you're starting with the technology, there are a few essential accessories. Here are our top 10 foldable ebike accessories:
1. eelo 1885 eBike Transport Bag
The ultra-light eelo 1885 Transport Bag helps you clean your car and house when transporting and storing your bike. Whether you travel by plane, train or automobile, the comfy shoulder straps and strategically placed carrying handles make loading and unloading easy.
The bag's fleece-lined interior protects your bike from scratches and dents, while a durable ballistic nylon exterior keeps it safe from the elements. The eelo 1885 Transport Bag has four sizes to accommodate most folding bikes.
2. eelo CYGLO Cycling Backpack
CYGLO product has been specifically designed to keep cyclists safe at dusk/night. The bright LED signal display will alert motorists of your presence and next intention when in use.
- FOUR LED SIGNALS: the cycling signal, left & right turning signal, and hazard signal. All are operated by a wireless remote control that clips easily to your bike handlebar.
- LIGHTWEIGHT: (365g) and FOLDABLE
- DURABLE and WATER RESISTANT: The backpack is made from water-resistant nylon fabric. It provides strength and long-lasting performance.
- RECHARGEABLE: It works for 20 hours on each charge of its lithium battery.
- BRIGHT: Strong LED lights and reflective materials help you stand out on the road.
3. eelo Pannier Bag
The eelo rear pannier rack bag is made from water-resistant ultra-durable PU (polyurethane) material that is hard-wearing and easy to clean. It includes a protective cover for those extra wet and muddy trips, so you only need to clean the cover, not the bag.
The main compartment has a 7L capacity, ideal for carrying your food, drinks, gadgets, tools or clothing: a robust zipper and elastic bungee cords on the top for increasing storage space.
It has a safe design. Its side and rear highly reflective strips provide increased visibility at night. Adjustable hook and loop fastener straps make it easy to be installed and unloaded in seconds. Attach it to your pannier or handlebars.
It is suitable for most bicycles, such as mountain, road, folding, electric, and motorbikes.
4. eelo Top Tube Bag with Phone Holder
The eelo Top Tube Bag is waterproof and protects your items on rainy days & extreme environments. The inside of the bag is light blue for easy-to-find items.
Roomy storage fits most essentials for keys, wallets, snacks, batteries, small bike pumps, cable locks, repair tools, spare tubes, and more. The upgraded double-sided bag can carry more items than a single bag, satisfying all the things you need for cycling, and is more suitable for longer trips. The needle seam is very tight; the encryption cloth is solid and durable.
The handlebar bag with two 8.28" Velcro is long enough for most styles or sizes of bicycles and motorcycles. Just fasten the two velcro straps to the handlebar. No matter the terrain, it will grip your handlebar securely, stay centred, and easily removed.
The 360° rotatable cell phone holder allows you to rotate the phone for your desired viewing angle. Having your phone display outside and the curved silicone bands design will not block the phone camera or home button position. You can see the call, text and easily take a selfie or listen to music without headphones!
5. ChargePort Flex
ChargePort Flex is a portable charging station that provides power to your phone and other devices while you ride. It's a flexible charging cable with a built-in battery pack for any USB device. The ChargePort Flex comes in two versions—one for iPhones and one for Android devices—and each includes an LED light that indicates when you're connected to the bike's battery via the ChargePort Flex connector.
6. Chargeport Anywhere (CAW)
The Chargeport Anywhere (CAW) is a portable charge port that can be attached to a backpack, bike frame, or belt. It can charge your phone, GPS and other devices while you ride.
The CAW also has an integrated LED light, so you don't have to worry about carrying extra lights when commuting at night or in low-light conditions.
7. Chargeport Daypack (CDP)
The Chargeport Daypack (CDP) is a small lightweight bag that can hold your phone, wallet and keys. It fits on the bike's seat post rack, or you can use it as a backpack or shoulder bag. The CDP is water resistant, so you don't have to worry about getting wet in rainstorms or while swimming with your bike.
8. Faux-Carbon Finish Bike Seatpost
Carbon fibre is the material of choice for many people who collect bikes, so it's no surprise that carbon fibre bike seats are also a popular accessory. This is the right option if you're looking for a way to make your ride more comfortable and stylish. The faux-carbon finish on this seat post will look great on any bike and gives off an eco-friendly vibe too!
The installation process takes just a few minutes and can be done by anyone with essential tools—you don't need any special skills or tools either! It fits most bikes (including road bikes), but if yours has an adjustable stem instead of full suspension, we recommend using our "Faux" version. The faux-carbon finish looks great on both men's and women's bikes!
9. Handlebar mount rearview mirror
The handlebar mount rearview mirror is an excellent option if you want to keep your eyes on the road while checking behind you. This type of device can be mounted on the handlebars of most bikes and works with a helmet mount, bike mount, or seat post mount.
10. Light system for the front of your bike
You should also consider a front-light system. These are useful for safety but also look great on your bike. The front light is essential if you ride at night or in low-light conditions, as it will be visible from the sides of your bike and behind you. It should also be easy to mount and remove when not needed; this can help prevent accidents if someone accidentally bumps into your bike while riding it without the necessary lights turned on (or even worse: crashes).
The last thing about this accessory is that it shouldn't require much charging time—you'll want something with several hours of battery life before needing another charge. There's no chance of running out entirely during an emergency!
These accessories will help ensure this doesn't happen:
When you're riding your bike to work, many things can go wrong. You might get lost there and ride around in circles for half an hour before finding your way back again.
There are so many ways to customise your bike experience. It's important to know what works best for you and how much you can spend on accessories. We hope this article has helped you find the perfect foldable bike accessory for your commute.
Another best thing you can do is switch to foldable electric bikes. The eelo 1885 disc explorer is ideal for train commuters, caravanners, motorhome owners, or boating enthusiasts. Take the hard work out of cycling and avoid the sweat with electric biking.
