LED-lights and a flashlight.
When you’re travelling at night, your bike must be visible for other drivers. Otherwise, everything may end in a tragedy. Therefore, a set of LED lights all over your bike would be extremely helpful. In addition, you need to see yourself where you’re going. For that, there are many special bike flashlights. Some models are simple while others have different modes for different times of day.
No matter where you go, there are always moments that you want to capture in photo or video format. And if you want your videos to be watchable and not shaky, buy an action camera. Small tip – look for shock-resistant devices and don’t forget about special attachments.
Every time something breaks, you have to stop and pull out your tools to fix it. However, it’s not very logical to carry all tools with you. Instead, one small multi-tool accessory can help you. There are different items on the market but most of them have wrenches, screwdrivers and even bottle openers just in case.
This gadget is essential for any biker. There are many different models on the market. Some of them can only show current speed, total distance and other indicators. More advanced models have extra features, like Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, water and dust protection or a sound signal for pedestrians.
A special compact bag doesn’t only store you clothes or other essentials – it protects everything with its water-resistant cloth and has a special pocket for a smartphone with a transparent cover. This is a comfortable place for using a smartphone as a navigator.
