What is the Best Waterproof Bike Cover for the Outdoors? Top 5 Picks
For any regular cyclist, a good waterproof bike cover should be an essential.
Primarily, it will protect your bicycle from rust which will continually wear it down until it is no longer usable, but even if you normally leave your bike inside when not riding, they can also guard well against dust, too.
Here are five reasonably-priced push bike covers for you to consider:
The cheapest on this list, this silver Aival design provides superb value for money.
Its double-stitched hems with heat seamed sealing prevent water from leaking through, while it easily covers the whole bicycle. Plus, its high density and durability will protect your bike against scratches and the elements.
It also comes with security eyelets at the front, allowing the cover to be locked to the bike via the front wheel, and a storm strap at the rear, to keep the cover in place. Its elastic bottom hems make it particularly easy to use, and a drawstring waterproof bag is included for storage, so it is simple to pack away and transport with you, too.
Not only is this ODSPTER bicycle cover waterproof similarly well-priced, but it can also cover not one bicycle, but two.
Its 200 x 70 x 110 cm build means it can fit two bikes of up to 24” wheel size together, and again, its strong, waterproof design will protect your bicycle(s) from scratches and provide good bike rain cover. Its two belt buckles on the middle and bottom edges also mean the wind won’t blow it away, either, and a hole at the bottom makes an ideal place to fit your bike lock through.
It’s also exceptionally easy to clean with a damp cloth, and comes with a high-quality drawstring bag, so packing it away when you don’t need it isn’t a problem, either.
Available in either black or blue, this bicycle cover from Goose is both lockable at the front wheel and made from quality, double-stitched, Oxford 210D fabric material.
With this cover, your bike can be safely stored outside, freeing up valuable space, while remaining well-protected. A drawstring pouch is also included for compact storage, while the storm strap at the rear will keep it in place on windy days.
And as well as the multiple choice of colour, it is also available in a number of different sizes: small, medium, large, extra-large and ‘extra-large extra-wide’. So, no matter, how big or small your bike is, there will no doubt be a Goose cover to fit and protect it properly.
It may be the most expensive of the four, but this outdoor bike cover from Bags and Covers Direct can also fit two bicycles, and can be mounted onto a car rack, too.
Made with strong polyester fabric, they will also offer quality bicycle rain cover, and though they should fit almost all adult bicycles, a made-to-measure service is also offered.
In addition, it can be bought with a clear pocket and/or hazard board and in five different colours: black, burgundy, green, grey or blue.
