Top 10 Must-Have Cycling Accessories for the Modern Cyclist

Cycling is one of the most therapeutic sports out there, and that's a fact all cycling enthusiasts agree on. Whether you're new to cycling or have been cycling for years, safety is very important, which is why having the right cycling accessories will ensure you're safe and stylish at the same time.

 It can be overwhelming and confusing to decide which cycling accessories to pick, but don't worry; we've got you! Here, we discuss the top 10 must-have cycling accessories that are worth buying.

 1. A Reliable Helmet


The first step to safety is a high-quality helmet, which you’ll thank yourself for investing in, especially the KASK Mojito 3, which is light on the pocket but cool on the looks. When selecting a helmet, you should also look for those with advanced safety technologies like MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) and good ventilation for a comfortable ride. Our KASK Protone Icon WG11 Helmet is an excellent choice for those seeking top-tier protection and style.

 2. Sunglasses

Oakley Sutro Sunglasses

Oakley Sutro Sunglasses offer a perfect blend of style and functionality. They're specially created to enhance colour and contrast; these sunglasses let you see the road textures and hazards more clearly. Their wide lens coverage offers a better field of vision, useful for both urban and trail cycling so that you can enjoy the beautiful views as much as possible.

 3. High-Quality Cycling Jersey


A good cycling jersey is about more than just looking stylish. It's about comfort, aerodynamics, and practicality. Look for jerseys made from breathable materials, with pockets and especially a sweat-wicking material such as our Rapha Men's Pro Team Training Jersey.

 Our range includes options for all cyclists, with a special range of jerseys for women that come in different colours, such as the Rapha Women's Core Lightweight Jersey.

 4. SHOKZ OpenRun Headphones

The SHOKZ OpenRun Headphones have an open-ear design, thanks to which you can enjoy your time cycling while hearing your favourite podcasts and music and also being aware of your surroundings because you don't want someone to be honking their car at you and you a clue about it.

Their lightweight design ensures you feel comfortable using them, and they even have a long battery life, so there is no need to worry about your earphones dying out on you on your long trips.

5. Essential Cycling Tools


There can be any unforeseen issue during bike rides, such as a flat tyre or a loose bolt, which is why you should keep a tool kit that should include a spare tube, tyre levers, a mini pump, and a multi-tool with various hex keys and screwdrivers. They're the essential cycling accessories you must remember.

 6. Water Bottle and Cage

Water Bottle

Cycling requires much physical strength, especially during the summers in Australia, so if you're not dehydrated enough, it could cause a severe problem. Hence, always keep a sturdy water bottle and a reliable cage with you because those always come in handy.

 7. Comfortable Cycling Shorts


Buying a high-quality, breathable pair of quality cycling shorts can really improve your cycling experience, especially on longer rides. Look for shorts with sound padding to provide comfort and prevent chafing. Women cyclists should opt for women-specific designs for a better fit, like the Santini Unico Women's Bib Shorts, ensuring both comfort and performance on long rides.

 8. Durable Bike Lights

Bike Lights

Whether you’re riding early in the morning or after dusk, proper lighting is crucial for visibility. A set of robust front and rear lights are essential cycling accessories for every cyclist. Look for lights with various modes to adjust to different lighting conditions.

 9. Puncture Repair Kit

Puncture Repair Kit

Flat tyres are inevitable, so being prepared is key. A compact puncture repair kit, including a patch kit, tyre boots, and a spare tube, can save the day. It's a small investment that can make a big difference.

 10. Cycling Gloves

Cycling Gloves

Cycling gloves protect your hands and improve grip. For summer, opt for fingerless designs, while full-finger gloves are better for cold weather. Padded gloves can also help absorb vibration and reduce pressure on longer rides.

 Women's Cycling Accessories

The women's cycling accessories are designed with their requirements and preferences in mind. Women’s cycling gloves, jerseys, and helmets are tailored for better fit and comfort.

Such as the Rapha Women's Core Rain Jacket, which is available in two colours and was created to give women a comfortable ride in the rain.

 Cycling Accessories in Australia

Australia’s diverse landscapes make it a haven for cyclists. When choosing accessories, consider the local climate and terrain. For instance, in hotter areas, hydration systems and sun-protective gear are crucial, while in urban settings, robust locks and lights gain priority.

 Every cycling accessory has a charm of its own, and investing in high-quality cycling accessories ensures your safety so you can have a comfortable ride and also lasts long with you.
