Brave winter by bike

Cycle safely and protected with Basil's accessories

With the temperature decreasing, the motivation for cycling can decrease. Not necessarily! You can protect yourself and your bike against the cold, the rain and the dark. How? Here are some tips to brave the dark & cold days.



Tip 1: Make sure you and your bicycle stay warm

Cycling in the winter also means cycling in the cold. When you cycle,  you'll warm up quite nicely. The choice of your (cycling) clothing is also important. Layer you clothes.

Furthermore, protect your E-bike as well. If temperature is below 15 degrees Celsius, we advise you to protect your battery against the cold with the Basil battery covers. The sleeves also protect your battery against shocks and damage. Either during cycling or during the transport of your E-bike.

  • Battery covers for frame and carrier batteries from brands including Bosch, Shimano Steps and Yamaha
  • Universal cover for a fully integrated battery
  • Covers for connection points of frame and luggage batteries
  • Cover for battery displays
  • 3D-shaped protection cover for centre motor

Tip 2: Be seen while cycling

Good visibility is very important. Especially in the winter when the days are shorter and darker. As a cyclist you are more vulnerable in traffic. You are not always visible to a motorist. Good lighting contributes to a safe bicycle ride. All Basil bags and baskets have reflective elements. For better visibility, we have gone one step further and have developed various bags and baskets with Nordlicht Technology *. Various bags and baskets from Basil are equipped with an LED strip, which makes you more visible in the dark. LED’S be seen!


* Nordlicht Technology can be used as additional lightning and should under no circumstances replace the legally required bicycle light. Whenever any light is used on a bicycle, it must at all times comply with local regulations.


Tip 3: Let's keep it dry

In the winter there is a good chance that you will be surprised by a (snow) shower. Is this a reason not to get on the bike? No! Cycling in the winter can be great. We know what you think: what is good about that? The knowledge that your laptop, cell phone and other valuables will remain dry. Even though the rain is falling from heaven. Therefore we have different bicycle bags, which are made to protect all your important things 100% against rain while cycling.
