E-Bike Cover Buying Advice: Materials, Size and Other Considerations
Covers are generally made for both bikes and e-bikes, and tend not to be e-bike cover specific. There are some more premium options that do offer advanced features that those with any worry about wear on motor, battery or just the frame in general can consider though (more on that down below).
When considering material for you e-bike cover there’s a few choices of material used by bike and e-bike cover manufacturers, but polyester remains one of the best and is commonly used. It tends to be durable and is often made to be waterproof too.
Nylon is a more lightweight option and may be a good choice if you need to take a cover with you, perhaps on an e-bike camping trip, though be aware it may not be as resistant to abrasion as polyester. Nylon can be a good low cost option too and can provide a nice tight fit on the bike as it is stretchy.
Lastly, polyurethane is another material you may see used, but again it’s not as tough as polyester.
