In fact, most people in countries like the USA, UK, and Canada now prefer these electric two-wheelers over cars for daily commuting.
So, you have decided to purchase an e-scooter or may have purchased one already. What’s next? What more can you do to make your e-scooter ride safer, faster, and lots of fun?
I have one word for you – Accessories.
E-scooter accessories are quite popular among both professional and novice riders. Whether you’re looking for better safety and stability while riding or just to keep your new scooter safe from the hands of thieves, there is an accessory for that.
Now, let me tell you about the top electric scooter accessories that you can (and should) buy right now.
Smart4u Smart Helmet
We all know the importance of helmets for two-wheeler riders. They keep you safe and ensure a smoother riding experience.
Normally, electric scooters do not have a backlight, which means you have no way to let the vehicle/person behind you know when you are about to stop or turn. Well, now, it’s possible with the Smart4u Smart Helmet.
The helmet is made of lightweight yet super strong polycarbonate material to protect the rider from any unexpected accidents and similar situations. On the inside, it has high-quality PSI-205T high-density EPS (polystyrene foam) to provide complete safety and minimize damage in case of an accident. Both the external and internal sides of the helmet have an extra layer of molding to improve impact resistance.
Of course, the best part of the Smart4u Smart Helmet is the presence of a 7-key high brightness LED lighting group on the backside. The LED lights are attached to a sensor that can automatically detect things like brake warning, acceleration, etc. and starts up the relevant lights in order to alert the person behind. In simple words, the helmet will alert the person behind you (on the road) whenever you’re about to stop, turn or accelerate, the same as backlights in a motorcycle/bike. The lighting strip can be easily seen up to a 180-meter distance.
The Smart4u Helmet comes in an lPX4 waterproof design, which makes it safe to use in mild rain conditions, however, it’s not advised to be used in heavy rain. The adjustable strap with knob can be used to easily fit the helmet to every head size and shape.
Another interesting thing about the helmet design is the presence of a set of 12 vents in an aerodynamic fashion to ensure good airflow and to keep the rider cool. The helmet will ensure you sweat less and remain comfortable while riding. It’s both stylish and sturdy. It comes with a powerful battery setup and is very easy to charge.
Gub Phone Mount
Phone Mount is another important accessory to buy and use with your e-scooter, especially if you are planning to use your phone/tablet (for navigation, etc.) while riding.
The Gub Phone Mount is the best-in-class phone mount you can buy on a budget. It’s made of industrial-grade aluminium alloy material that is super strong. It has a strong grip to hold your phone securely and a sponge gasket to protect the device from scratches. Thanks to the all-aluminium body, the mount is lightweight and doesn’t cause extra load on your scooter.
As a universal mobile holder, the Gub phone mount comes with adjustable width (of 50mm – 100mm) and can easily accommodate any mobile device of any size between 5 to 7 inches. Moreover, the handlebar grip can be easily fitted to any standard handlebar size, including 1-inch, ⅞-inch, and 1.25-inch.
As standard in motorcycle mounts, this mount also has the 360° Rotation feature, which means you can use your phone at any angle and easily and safely interact with the device while riding.
For delivery people who need to use their phone (for navigation, order tracking, etc.) while riding, this is an ideal e-scooter phone mount. It is designed to keep your phone safe and strongly attached to the bike.
Besides a smart helmet and a mobile holder, here are some other accessories you may want to use with your electric scooter.
Even though most of today’s electric scooters come with built-in locks, you can further improve the safety of your vehicle by using an anti-theft wheel scooter lock, which can be used on the disc brakes of your e-scooter to keep the wheels locked when you’re not using it. The lock will ensure that no one can use the scooter without your permission.
Electric Scooter Foot Support Cover
If you are worried that the foot support/stand on your e-scooter is damaging the surface or can damage itself or the vehicle by slipping, this silicone foot support sleeve can be used to provide extra stability to the footrest. It’s anti-skid and wear-resistance and designed to keep your scooter safe.
Front Hook for E-scooters
Normally, e-scooters do not always come with a front hook, which can be an important tool to carry bags and other small items when you are commuting. Well, now you can attach this small yet highly useful portable front hook to your e-scooter and easily carry a small bag when travelling. It’s compatible with most electric scooters and two-wheelers out there.
Handle Covers Sleeve
Are your e-scooter handles not comfortable enough? Are you worried that the frequent use of the e-scooter will ruin the handle covers? If so, you can use these beautiful and high-quality silicone handle cover sleeves to protect your bike handles while giving more comfort to your hands.
A front hook may not always be useful when you need to carry items like gloves, tools, or mobile phone with you on your e-scooter. Well, worry not. Let me introduce you to this attractive-looking and strong e-scooter front bag that can be easily attached to the handlebar of your bike. It’s lightweight, sturdy, and comes with a built-in charger.
