Let me help you find the best accessories for your ebike!
One thing that has made riding an ebike enjoyable is the accessories I have found to go with my bikes. I’ve tried many different accessories, and I’ll share the ones I have liked the best.

19 Best Ebike Accessories For The Ultimate Ride
1 – Bike Rack by KAC
I really like this KAC bike rack. It was easy to put together, and getting the ebikes on the rack was a piece of cake, which is great because e-bikes can be heavy and bulky.
We’ve taken our e-bikes on many long road trips, including the Virginia Creeper Trail, and it kept our bikes safe and sound.
2 – Cup Holder by Kemimoto
I’ve been looking for a solid cup holder for my ebike rides, and I finally found one I love.
It’s made for ATVs and motorcycles, so it’s tough enough to handle any rough trail. Even my husband was impressed with how sturdy it is.
And it’s not just for bikes – it fits ATVs, strollers, and even wheelchairs.
It’s easy to mount and can hold anything from a standard soda can to a 20-ounce bottle.
If you’re tired of those flimsy cup holders that can’t take a hit, this is the one to get.

3 – Phone Mounts
I own 3 different phone mounts and there are pros and cons to each one. Let me tell you my experience with each one.
Bicycle Phone Mount by Seven Sparta
This Phone Mount by Seven Sparta holds a small to large phone well. My phone is quite big because I have a heavy-duty phone case.
It has four telescopic arms that grip the corners of your phone tightly.
I’ve ridden my bike a few hundred miles now, sometimes going over a lot of bumps, and this phone holder has kept my phone secure.
It’s made of plastic and slightly bulky but has worked well for me.
Ebike Phone Mount by Mokwheel
This phone mount by Mokwheel came in an accessory bundle that I ordered with my Mokwheel Asphalt ST Ebike.
What I like best about it is that it’s made of metal, so it’s sturdier than my plastic phone mounts. It cradles your phone at the bottom so it can’t slip out and has a knob on the side to tighten the grip on your phone.
I love that it’s made out of metal instead of plastic. And it holds my phone securely. What I don’t like is that it doesn’t fit a phone with a large case on it. I have to take the case off my phone to use this phone mount. But I don’t really mind.
4 – Bike Phone Bag / Cycling Wallet by Wild Man
My husband keeps his phone in this Waterproof Bike Pouch by Wild Man.
You can store a lot in this cycling wallet – water bottle, wallet, keys, snacks, tools, and of course, a phone.
The phone stays secure and protected inside the plastic cover and you can easily see your phone and use the touchscreen to listen to music or use google maps.
This bag doesn’t work with a cruiser-style bike because it needs to rest on the top bar of a traditional bicycle.
5 – Bicycle Panniers by BV
I’m in love with these Bicycle Panniers (saddlebags) by BV. Each side has three large zippered pockets giving you plenty of room to carry several items.
I like to pack a picnic and go riding for hours. There is plenty of space to keep drinks, sandwiches, snacks, and more. I could easily bring along an extra jacket as well.
I also make trips to the grocery store with my bike, and I can’t believe how much I can store in these bags.
You’ll need a carrier to mount your saddlebags onto. We purchased the Bike Rack Touring Carrier by Ibera and have been happy with it.
It carries up to 55 pounds and has a quick-release bag mounting system.
6 – Bike Light Set by RAV3
These Ebike Lights by Rav3 are large, super-bright, and rechargeable.
If you’re riding at night or even dusk, I highly suggest putting lights on the front and back of your bike.
There are times when we planned to get back before the sun started to set, but didn’t quite make it in time. I was so glad we had lights on our bikes.
These lights have four modes to choose from, including strobe and static lights.
You turn them on by pressing the button on the side. They last over 12 hours on a full charge and come with a charger to recharge the batteries.
7 – Polarized Photosensitive Sunglasses by Feisedy
The advantage of having polarized sunglasses is they protect your eyes from UV rays and eliminate reflection and glare.
I can’t tell you how nice it is to have sunglasses that adjust with the sun’s brightness. I always wear them when biking, even if it’s not that bright out, because they keep bugs and debris out of my eyes.
(Update: These gloves are no longer sold on Amazon. I updated the links to the best choice I could find.)
These touch screen gloves work well to protect my hands, keep them warm, and allow me to use the touchscreen on my phone.
I’m a professional pianist, so it’s essential to protect my fingers!
I have large hands (for a girl), and they fit me well.
I layer a thin glove under these or wear warmer winter gloves if it’s frigid outside.
9 – Men’s Padded Cycling Shorts by Baleaf
My husband wears these padded cycling shorts and likes the added padding for long rides. They are lightweight, breathable, and chafe-free.
They work great as shorts in hot weather or underwear with your pants.
10 – Women’s Padded Bike Shorts by Baleaf
I never go on a bike ride without my padded cycling shorts on.
And if it’s cold outside, I wear them under exercise pants.
They have pockets to carry a phone, keys, and wallet on each side.
11 – Bicycle Bell by Ymnl
A bike bell is a must if you’ll be riding on trails where you must pass other riders or walkers.
This Bicycle Bell by Ymnl is loud and easy to ring, and you can install it on the left or right side of your bike. It works well to let others know you’re behind them.
It’s an important safety feature for a cyclist.
12 – Rear View Mirror
The picture above is of the West Biking Handlebar Mirror.
I love it, but my husband had to make several adjustments to mount it to our handlebars, and he couldn’t find any other mirrors on Amazon that he felt he could recommend.
For this reason, my husband recommends the Cat Eye Bar End Mirror from Aventon. According to reviews, it fits at the end of your handlebar, is durable, and won’t need adjusting like our mirrors.
13 – Kryptonite Chain Lock by Aventon
A good bike lock is a must to protect your bike and keep it safe. There are many different types of bike locks, each with its benefits and drawbacks.
What I like about this Kryptonite Chain Lock is that it is lightweight, weather-resistant, and long enough for my bike.
It also has a thick steel construction that gives me peace of mind, knowing it will be hard for someone to cut through.
14 – Bicycle Repair Bag With Pump And Patch Kit
This bicycle repair kit is next on my list to purchase for my bike rides. With an ebike, you generally go long distances, and I would hate getting stuck with a flat tire.
I like this repair kit because it comes with a pump, patches, and a multi-tool that will handle most minor repairs.
15 – Bicycle Helmet by Cali
When we purchased our Aventon Bikes, they had a deal where they gave you a free Cali Bicycle Helmet with your purchase.
I love the fit, color, and style of the Cali Bike Helmet. It has deeper coverage in the back than most helmets and has a removable visor.
16 – Water Bottles by S’well
I like the S’well water bottles when I bike because I can store them in my saddlebags. They close tightly without leakage and keep drinks cool for up to 40 hours.
They also come in fun patterns and colors.
17 – Bike Helmet Liner by Skull Cap
These beanies by Skull Cap are thin enough to fit under a helmet and do a great job at keeping you warm. The fabric is lightweight and moisture-wicking.
If it’s extra cold out, we sometimes layer two of these or add an ear warmer over the top. (See below)
18 – Fleece Ear Warmers/ Headband by French Fitness Revolution
These Ear Warmers by French Fitness Revolution work for men or women. My husband and I both love them.
They cover your ears and forehead to keep you warm and cozy. It’s easy to put on and is thin enough to wear under a bicycle helmet.
I also wear earbuds underneath this ear warmer.
19 – Front Basket by Magicycle
I’ve recently added a front basket from Magicycle to my Magicycle Jaguarundi fat-tire ebike.
It’s cute and small, perfectly fitting my Yeti Cooler, sea shell bags, lunch, snacks, or even groceries.
It’s really easy to install or take off.
It works with any Magicycle bike other than their commuter bikes. I’m not sure if it works with brands other than Magicycle.
20 – Portable Soft Cooler by Yeti
I was thrilled to discover that my Yeti soft cooler was the perfect fit for the small front basket of my fat tire ebike. (See picture above).
It’s the smallest cooler in the Yeti lineup, but don’t let its size fool you – this gem can hold up to 8 cans of soda with ice or a variety of snacks and drinks.
It’s waterproof, easy to clean, and keeps your drinks ice-cold for hours.
And if it fits in my small front basket, it would fit in any rear basket well.
21 – Wireless Earbuds by Soundcore
I was a little worried about wearing wireless earbuds biking because I thought they might fall out.
I was wrong! These Bluetooth Earbuds by Soundcore come with several sizes of ear tips and ear wings to get the perfect fit.
If inserted correctly, they lock in place in your ear. For this reason, they are some of the best wireless headphones for small or large ears.
And the price for these earbuds is only about $50 which is great for the sound quality and noise-canceling feature.
What I truly love is how great they work for phone calls. If someone calls me while I’m riding, I can easily keep riding while talking. This comes in handy if I get separated from my husband, and we need to call each other to find a spot to meet up.
These earbuds come with a charging case and have a really good bass sound (one thing my husband loves about them!)

23 – Heated Gloves by Kemimoto
I’m loving these heated gloves from Kemimoto. They have 3 heat levels, making them perfect for any outdoor activity – especially riding my ebike in the winter.
Charging the battery is easy, and one charge lasts up to 9 hours, depending on what heat level you use.
These gloves are waterproof, have adjustable wrist straps, and even feature touchscreen-sensitive fingers.
See my video about the Kemimoto Heated Gloves below.
The video below shows several bike accessories I mentioned in this article, including the bike helmet, phone holder, mirror, and gloves.
I hope this guide helps you pick the best electric bike gear to help you enjoy your rides.
