Essential Electric Scooter Accessories You Must Have

  • Read Time: 6 min

Once you start riding and enjoying your electric scooter, you will find that it, and you, might need some additional important accessories. Then the question is, what are the best electric scooter accessories?

First and foremost on that list will always be safety. Protecting yourself and the scooter. After that practical items such as a phone holder, or pouch for stow things away. Below we have listed what we consider to be the must-have list.

Helmet

Electric Scooter Helmet

It is not a question of if you should get a helmet... but rather which one you should get. I wouldn't put a helmet down as an accessory either, more like a lifesaver. Riding without one is extremely reckless if not stupid.

Make sure to get a proper one and don't buy the cheapest option to avoid serious injuries.

And if you ride a proper fast e scooter, like the Mantis, a full-face helmet is the only way to go.

Front and rear light

Most electric scooters don't have a bright enough headlight for proper visibility in the dark. Adding a proper one will not only help you see better but you will also be more visible by other road users.

A taillight is also important if you plan on riding in the dark. It prevents getting hit from behind. 

Fluorescent vest

A supereffective way to be seen for scooter riders from far away is the fluorescent vest. Easy to bring with you as it is light and folds into a very small package, so no excuses. You will be seen front and back as they wrap around your torso. This is one accessory you should invest in asap. Reflective clothing at its best.

Armor Jacket

This is what you will see on motorcycle riders. They take their safety features very seriously. You might think this is a bit too much. But if your electric scooter does 30 mph (50 kph) and you fall at that speed...well. If someone told you to jump out of a car at 30 mph, you would want an armored jacket on you. They protect your front, back, shoulders, depending on which one you get. They also provide good arm protection.

Knee and elbow pads

Two parts of your body that usually take a big hit if you should hit that unexpected pothole, knees and elbows. The more protection you have, the better. We have a great all-in-one protective gear set at Fluidfreeride.

Gloves

electric scooter gloves

I never ride without gloves, whether it is on my e scooter, or on my mountain bike. The hands will automatically brace for impact in a fall, and to not be skinned alive, riding gloves are a must. For a slower scooter, max 15 mph (25 kph) thinner gloves similar to bike gloves or summer gloves are ok. For high speeds, nothing less than motorcycle gloves are to be recommended.

It also helps keep you warm when riding in chillier temperatures.

Eye Protection

Ever got a bug in your eye at 15 mph (25 kph)? It only happens once, after that, you will get some eye protection. The bright sun is not the only thing we want to keep out of our eyes, but foreign objects such as bugs or flying dirt as well.

There are many cycling sunglasses that work fine. 

Storage Bag

Electric scooter storage bag

Electric scooters have no natural storage space on them. Carrying something with you means you will have to use a backpack or, get a smaller bag that you can attach to the handlebars. More like a pouch. This is for smaller objects only but a very practical option.

Alarm

If possible, get an aftermarket alarm to keep the long fingers away from your e scooter. The noise might put them off and choose another object.

Lock

electric scooter folding lock

There's no way around it, get a lock if you plan on parking in public spaces. There is a wide range of locks at varying prices. Chain locks, cable locks, folding locks, and U locks. Make sure to get a secure lock that is properly sturdy and chunky. 

Bell or Horn

Electric Scooter Bell

The e-scooter is a relatively quiet vehicle that moves quite swiftly. A bell or a horn is a must to warn other people that you are coming up from behind. Take into consideration that many people are not concerned too much about road safety. They have headphones at full blast when in traffic so are only paying attention to themselves. A horn might be the best option. A loud one!  

Mirror

electric scooter mirrors

It is proper scary to crane your neck and look behind you on an e scooter. Many accidents happen when you do exactly that. Even professional bikers tend to do that mistake. Just watch the Tour de France and see how frequent it is even with experienced riders. You travel faster than you think and even the slightest shift in balance, and you are in the ditch.

A couple of mirrors will sort this out. After all, you will turn a lot and you must check behind you before committing.

Phone Holder

electric scooter phone holder

We can't live without our cell phones. It can be a distraction when riding though and steering with one hand on an e scooter is not like on a regular bike. It is super scary so don't even think about it.

A proper phone holder will make it possible to use GPS or see notifications without risk of falling and damaging yourself as well as the phone.

It is safe to say that it feels like one of the essential accessories.

Tire sealant

electric scooter tire sealant

Riding frequently and on pneumatic tires will mean the inevitable puncture will happen. Flat tires are part of the game. Tire slime or tire sealant prevents as well as seals leaks. Easy to bring with you and a definite must on longer rides.

Wrap up

The list of scooter accessories can be made very long as there are many items to add to your e scooter.

A good tip is to focus on the "need to haves" rather than the "want to haves".

A proper helmet, and maybe a full-face helmet depending on how fast your electric scooter is, should always be at the top of any such list. Other safety gear like gloves, eye protection, safety vest, high mounted rear, and front light is a definite must. Tire sealant, phone holders, and a lock will make you prepared for any issue.
