Top 5 Must-Have Electric Scooter Accessories

Top 5 Must-Have Electric Scooter Accessories

You’ll enjoy your e-scooter even more with the right electric scooter accessories.

Whether you use your scooter for your weekday commute, weekend adventures, or for basically anything and everything, you’ll love the essentials we’ve set out below. And here at Storm Rides, we’re your dependable source of NZ's best electric scooter accessories.

So, here are the top five accessories that every e-scooter rider needs.

  1. Helmets
  2. Lights
  3. E-Scooter Locks
  4. E-Scooter Cases
  5. Bike Bell

We’ve picked out the best electric scooter helmet options, lights, locks, case, and even bike bells, so you will be fully kitted out for pleasurable and safe riding. 


1. Helmets

Any responsible e-scooter rider must always wear a helmet – that’s non-negotiable. Typically, e-scooters are ridden at 20-60km/h, making a helmet a must!

There are some awesome designs available - we have some options below as well as our best electric scooter helmet guide if you want to deep dive!

If you will be riding at 40km/h or quicker, the best helmet for your e-scooter will be a full-face one, such as the Rjays Grid. With its aerodynamic design, advanced polycarbonate shell, and UV-protected visor, it will be just the thing to keep you safe, comfortable, and well-shielded against knocks.

Looking for alternative styles, the Livall Smart Helmet BH51M Neo is an excellent choice with built-in gravity acceleration sensors that activate indicators around the helmet - letting others around you see when you’re slowing. You can even use a handlebar remote to signal your turns for easy visibility to other vehicles and pedestrians.

2. Lights

Your e-scooter’s headlights are a vital safety feature. The standard headlight on an e-scooter is usually nowhere near bright enough to give proper visibility after the sun goes down. And by “visibility”, we’re talking about whether you can see the road ahead and other people’s ability to see you.

With its tough aluminium shell and quick disconnect clamp, the GUB Escooter Light will greatly help maximise your safety when mounted to your scooter handlebars. It offers 300 lumens of brightness from its 5w LED bulb, and is easy to recharge via USB. 


Rear lights – such as those on the aforementioned Livall Smart Helmet – are similarly important in low light, making you much more visible to approaching vehicles.


3. E-Scooter Locks

With a top-of-the-range new electric scooter potentially setting you back north of $7,000 these days, and even entry-level offerings unlikely to leave much change from $1000, you can hardly afford someone else making off with your ride. But, that could happen if you don’t have the right electric scooter lock.

With our own e-scooter lock range including the finest U locks, cable locks, chain locks, and folding locks, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

But if we had to make just one product recommendation, it would be our best selling Etook Folding Scooter Lock.

Its compact and strong locking system, which can be easily secured to your scooter, will give you the utmost peace of mind – especially when you consider its high-strength stainless-steel rivets and anti-drilling cap.


4. E-Scooter Cases

Electric scooter cases provide a secure space to carry around your phone, wallet, keys, or even a charger. Absolutely necessary when your ‘fit doesn’t have pockets - and more comfy than having pockets bulging.

If water resistance and a tough outer shell will be major priorities for your electric scooter case, this EVA Case can be depended on to keep everything in place. The Velcro stem/handlebar straps also make it super easy to put the case on and take it off your scooter.

5. Bike bell

Any electric scooter needs to have a bell or a horn, so that the rider can alert others to their presence. In fact, this might be especially crucial for an e-scooter, given that these are relatively quiet vehicles that can come up behind someone quite rapidly.

The right bike bell, then, can help avoid collisions, enhancing safety for both the rider and pedestrians on the streets.

Your electric scooter might have an in-built horn, but its harsh sound will probably be startling to pedestrians. So, it can be a good idea to invest in a gentler-sounding option, such as this stylish Bike Bell.

And when we say “stylish”, we do mean that, thanks to its availability in both Candy Red and Electric Blue. Described as “good quality and quality sounds” by one recent reviewer, it is one of the best e-scooter bells in NZ. 

Time to Pimp Your Ride!

Phone holders, bags, gloves, body armour, and pants are among the other “extras” you could pick up on your next visit Storm Rides - online or instore.

After picking up your “must haves” - a strong e-scooter helmet, locks, and lights - it’s time to get some “nice to haves”! It’s always fun to pimp your ride! Visit our accessories section now to start shopping. If you have any further questions, hit us up on live chat.
