Helmets & Locks

Helmets provide the much needed protection and safety you need in the case of a fall or crash. And a good lock keeps your investment safe.

Helmets

Helmets provide the much needed protection and safety you need in the case of a fall or crash. No matter how careful you are or how skilled of a rider you are, accidents happen and when they do, you'll be happy that you wore a helmet to protect your precious cargo. 

Bike helmets have different technologies to create light wight, well ventilated, and enhanced safety features such as MIPS and ANGI to keep you safe and comfortable.

Locks

Having your bicycle disappear is a sure way to put a dampener on your day. Whether it goes missing from a garage, a dedicated parking stand or is cropped from a set of railings, the outcome is the same. So, with the world still populated by an annoyingly large percentage of scumbags, how do you best guarantee your bike remains where you left it?

Bells & Lights

Just like the best road bike helmets, bells & lights help increase cycling safety, both for the rider themselves and for surrounding pedestrians.

Bells

Many cyclists find bells off-putting because of their look - but the latest crop of bike bell technology includes some impressive little contraptions, many of which can almost hide behind a cable or under a handlebar. Just like the best road bike helmets, bells help increase cycling safety, both for the rider themselves and for surrounding pedestrians. It's surprising how often people on foot don't hear a bike coming up behind them, even if the rider is calling out to alert them to their approach.

Lights

Good-quality bike lights should be one of the first cycling accessories on your shopping list. Needless to say, they are essential when cycling at night or if visibility is poor, making lights a must-have during the winter and a smart addition to your bike even in the summer.

Bike Seats & Trailers

Child bike seats are ideal for the daily commute or for family adventures.

Racks & On-Bike Storage

There are a variety of styles to fit your vehicle, bike, and budget.

Car Racks

If you're transporting multiple bikes, e-bikes, or full suspension bikes, look no further than a hitch mounted rack. Securely attached to your vehicle and take seconds to install. There are a variety of styles to fit your vehicle, bike, and budget. 

Some racks secure the bikes through the frame of the bike and there are also options that secure by the wheel to avoid any contact with the frame. Carry up to 5 bikes, and some models conveniently fold up and swing out so you still have full access to the trunk of your vehicle.

On-Bike Storage

Arrive to your destination without the sweaty back that backpacks cause with trapped heat. A bike rack is an essential way to carry all your necessities. Racks can affix to your bike in a variety of ways and can accommodate all sorts of different brake systems.
