Other than the bike itself, accessories are one important factor that we should consider on purchase.

Helmet is considered to be the most important thing a biker must have. It is a hard protective head cover and worn to protect the head from injury. It should always be worn by every biker for safety purposes.

Eye protection

Some bikers do not take into account this kind of accessory. They pay no attention to this on purchase of bike for they think that it is useless. They do not know that other than the helmet, it is also the item that the bikers must have for it protects the eyes from flying insects or any other things.


A mountain biker should wear gloves that would cover their hands. This should be worn to help you hang on to the handle because in a long run it will be painful for your hands to hold the handlebars.


Biking is not easy and it can consume much water from our body. When you are in the middle of the track, there would be instances that you will fall thirsty and you feel like drinking. In situation like this, it would be better if you have your own hydration backpack that has a wide space for you to carry other items like snack and water.


You should always think of safety when biking. Even if we do not like it, there will be possibilities that we will encounter problems in the middle of the trail. As a biker, it is required to have a tool kit to help fix things out.

First aid kit

Always be prepared. Before you go biking, at least carry a small first aid kit that includes first aid items.
