Few Of The Fuji Bicycle Accessories

Bicycle Accessories

All bikes including Fuji Bikes, despite their high performance need some accessories, to perform to their best ability. Here are a few accessories that when used with Fuji Bikes will help you achieve your cycling goals.

Bicycle Accessories
  • Helmets: Helmets are the key accessory that you absolutely need while cycling out on the road. Wearing a specialist approved proper helmet can make the difference in saving your life should you ever undergo a cycling accident. While choosing your helmet make sure that you find a one that properly fits you and have extra features inbuilt for safety. They should have sufficient ventilation to keep you cool during hot days and prevent overheating. Choose a heavy or lightweight helmet depending on the terrain you’ll undertake while cycling.
  • Shoes: Shoes are very essential in assuring your comfort while you’re cycling. Choose shoes that fit you properly and you can be sufficiently comfortable in. They should also snugly fit you at the heel and therefore you should definitely buy them from a shop. Depending on the shape of your feet, buy a narrower or a wider shoe. They should also have proper ventilation just like the helmet as it’s important for your feet which expand with heat as blood comes in through long periods of cycling. The right amount of ventilation is important as it decides how comfortable you are. Sole stiffness is also an important feature to consider and road shoes usually have a carbon fibre plate that improve the stiffness and reduce the weight. This is because with increase in stiffness power transfer is much improved thus improving the overall performance.
  • Clothing: While choosing Clothing for cycling, choose those clothes that fit your body to improve aerodynamics and reduce chafing. Usually there’s a vast selection of fabrics to choose from and synthetic fabrics like polyester and elastane are used for their ability to provide lightweight, stretchable and breathable clothing. Other factors such as colour, water resistance, anti-bacterial properties etc also make for good quality clothing. An important thing to consider is the terrain you’ll be cycling in so choose your clothing accordingly. In colder areas, the clothing should be insulated and preferably water and wind resistant. Also, use fabrics that are protected from UV in case you go cycling in the sun.
  • Sunglasses: Sunglasses that are lightweight, have interchangeable lenses and a wide range of vision so that you get a clear view of the road are the perfect for cycling. Make sure to check whether the sunglasses fit with your helmet properly and accordingly buy them. Aim for UV protected polarised sunglasses and keep the terrain in which you’ll be cycling in mind, while making the final selection.
