A good, high quality, waterproof bike cover, can help you in more ways than one.
Below are some of the benefits and the features that you should look for.
Waterproof and tough
A good bike cover will protect your precious cycle from anything the weather can throw at it. This includes rain, snow, hail, dust and UV protection, all which can damage your bicycle if it were to be left unprotected.
The cover should shed water easily and be quick drying.
Ideally, it should incorporate a PE coating to further protect and enhance the life of the fabric.
The fabric should also be tough and hard wearing while remaining smooth and supple enough to comfortably fit over the bike.
It should ideally be double stitched, with overlapping seams, to prevent any water ingress at the joints.
Using an outdoor rated bike cover can help free up space in your shed, garage or home.
You can safely store the bike outside, knowing that it will remain safe and protected from the elements.
If you are short on space, storing your bike outside could be the answer to decluttering your home.
A bike cover gives you this option.
The added bonus of a bike cover is that it can help protect and hide your bicycle from potential vandals or thieves.
This is especially the case in urban areas, where it may be advantageous to conceal the bike from prying eyes.
The bike cover should ideally feature a lock hole, to allow the cover and bike to be secured to a fixed, solid structure.
Ideally, the cover should feature elastic hems, situated at the bottom of the cover, in order to allow to cover to fit snugly under your bikes front and rear wheel.
It is advantageous to have a strap and buckle situated at the bottom of the cover to stop the cover lifting up in windy conditions, keeping it securely in place.
The above points illustrate the main points to consider when choosing a suitable bike cover for your precious bike.
A bike cover can be a valuable addition to your cycling equipment, giving you far more storage options, whilst ensuring your bicycle remains protected and safe.
