28 Best Cyber Monday Ebike and Escooter Deals (2022): Bike Accessories and More

Buy Google Ads Accounts

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the time of year when you shop for big-ticket items for holiday presents, like sound systems or laptops. But if your home theater or kitchen is all set, let us make one more suggestion: Buy a bike or scooter. Almost one in four adults report that they get no physical activity outside of their jobs. Incorporating more active transportation methods in your life reduces climate emissions, creates more opportunities for small businesses in pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods, and most important, gets you up and moving. 

Updated November 28 at 8:30 pm: We’ve updated pricing and availability, added back the Kryptonite Fahgeddaboutit Lock (which returned), added a couple more ebikes, and another helmet.

Electric Bike Deals

Read our Best Ebikes guide for more recommendations.

Brompton C Line

Brompton’s electric folding bike is irresistibly cute, and the design of the motor and battery make it incredibly easy to pack up for travel. The version without the electric motor is also on sale for 20 percent off. Former art director Elena Lacey rode 70 miles on a Brompton during a recent trip to Scotland.

Speaking of cute bikes, you will attract attention while riding the JackRabbit micro bike (7/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s our favorite small bike and as convenient as a skateboard for carrying up to classrooms or dorms, and the addition of an extra battery and cargo box ($225 value) makes it that much more useful. 

WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu says this “lite” version of the classic Lectric XP (7/10, WIRED Recommends) offers a pretty similar experience for less money. It’s not as heavy, though still difficult to carry around at 46 pounds. The fat tires will take on bumpy roads like a champ, and the 500-watt rear hub motor will cruise up most hills. The range isn’t as great though. We’re testing the new XP 3.0 right now, and there’s a similar bundle you can snag.

Propella Mini EBike

My love for tiny bikes is not entirely self-serving: More women need to ride bikes. Statistically, women tend to be more risk-averse, and we also spend more time running our kids to school and going to the grocery store. Bikes that are easy to ride and lift would help. The Propella Mini fits the bill, and almost all of its bikes are affordable, easy to assemble, and ride. We also like the Propella 7S, which is also on sale for $300 off.

Gocycle makes luxury folding ebikes with clean lines and premium materials; we’ve tested several and found them to be excellent, if expensive. A hefty discount makes that price tag a little easier to bear. The G4 is Gocycle’s intro model and, like its other ones, it folds into a sleek, compact package that weighs only 38.8 pounds with a 500-watt motor and carbon fiber fork. 

It’s hard to find an ebike with better value than this one from Rad Power. The 750-watt motor is more powerful than most ebikes we’ve tested, so it will handle steep hills well. Just keep in mind that the parents of a child who died while riding a Rad Power Bike have sued the company. We do not recommend you let children ride powerful ebikes like this one.

We appreciated the VanMoof S3 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) for how well it incorporates its security features into a sleek package. From the seamlessly locking rear wheel to the integrated tracking and theft alarm, the VanMoof provides owners with the peace of mind to leave (locked up) outside a store, office, or café without worry. The automatic gearset was a luxury in stop-and-go city traffic, and the powerful motor and brakes round out an impressive feature set.

With the discount, the CrossCurrent makes an impressive case for itself among the entry-level end of the ebike market. Its 750-Watt motor can carry its rider to a 28-mile-per-hour top speed—or up to 65 miles, if they go easier on the speed—and its hand throttle (for acceleration without pedaling) makes it a class 3 ebike. An integrated headlight, hydraulic brakes, and nine-speed gearset round out the features list.

Cowboy 4 ST ebike

The Cowboy 4 ST (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a beautiful, low-maintenance bike that’s easy to put together. It has a removable battery and lights that automatically turn on when it’s dark. It’s best for folks taller than 5’6″, but just know that the 250-watt motor might not be powerful enough if you’re in a hilly area.

This Wing ebike (7/10, WIRED Recommends) has strong acceleration and its speed can be unlocked to hit up to 24 miles per hour. It’s not terribly heavy at 39 pounds, and you can have accouterments like a headlight, taillight, and an alarm with a keyfob. 

This electric mountain bike is no longer in our roundup of Best Electric Bikes, but it was our top e-mountain bike pick for years. We’ve also never seen it on sale like this. It’s a solid option if you’re looking for a new electric bike to hit the trails with.

Ride1Up Roadster V2 electric bike

Select colors are on sale. In our Best Electric Bikes guide, I said that Ride1Up’s Prodigy was a little overpriced for what you got. However, it’s hard to get more affordable than Ride1Up’s easy commuter. We haven’t tested this particular version yet, but it has an aluminum alloy frame and a 350-watt Class 3 Shengyi motor. If you want a nicer motor, the aforementioned Prodigy is also $250 off. 

This was not my favorite electric cargo bike—I found it big and unwieldy, and the battery life lasted only two days. But everyone else in my family appreciated its powerful throttle, stable three-wheeled configuration, and big capacity. Bunch Bikes very rarely go on sale, so if you’ve been looking for a good family bike, now is your chance. This bundle adds a phone mount, drink mount, bell, and some holiday-themed seat cushions.

We have not yet tested this reasonably priced electric commuter, but it is on our list! State Bicycle is known for its affordable single-speed intro bicycles, and its ebike is no exception. It has an aluminum frame and a standard 250-watt motor, and weighs 38 pounds—it looks maneuverable, easy to use, and relatively light.

Electric Scooter Deals

Our Best Electric Scooters guide has plenty of other recommendations, too.

Apollo City electric scooter

Apollo’s upgraded scooters are best for people with power or range anxiety, and the City (7/10, WIRED Recommends) fits the bill. The company’s Cyber Week includes bundles where you can get up to $200 worth of accessories for free. 

This is our overall Best Electric Scooter. It offers a considerable range for the money, a comfortable ride on 9.5-inch tubeless tires, and many fun extras, like a bell, lights, and a place on the handlebars to put a phone mount.

This is the latest iteration of the electric scooter that reviews editor Julian Chokkattu tried and said was the Best Budget Scooter. This version has a longer range and comes with a few built-in locking mechanisms so you can run a (quick) errand without fear. Gotrax has other models on sale too. 

FluidFreeRide Fluid Mosqutio scooter

This is reviews editor Julian Chokkattu’s favorite tiny scooter! It includes a free accessory package at a $147 value. The package has a folding lock, a cellphone holder, and some awesome yet ridiculous fingerless gloves.

Out of the dozen or so electric scooters he’s tested, this is reviews editor Julian Chokkattu’s favorite (9/10, WIRED Recommends). It doesn’t usually go on sale too. It has a great blend of speed (up to 28 mph), range (up to 15 miles for him, a 6’4″ person), and weight (it’s 36 pounds!). It’s easy to fold down, including the handlebars as well, so it can fit in most small spaces. 

This used to be our top pick, but after months of use, its range hasn’t been as reliable. Still, for the money, it’s a well-built electric scooter. It goes up to 15 mph and offers a comfy ride, and there are lights, reliable brakes, and an intuitively designed bell that’s easy to find without looking down.

Mission Workshop Khyte bag

Reviewer Jaina Grey found the sturdy, waterproof Khyte to be “almost a full-on hiking backpack.” It has intuitive pockets and seems to expand endlessly. It is the best extra-large messenger bag in our roundup of the Best Messenger Bags. 

Enter code HELMET25 to see the discount at checkout. Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a technology that offers added protection to your brain from rotational injuries in the event of a crash. It’s worth the small added cost. There are many paint schemes available for this stylish-looking helmet, from solid colors to complicated artistic designs.

For those riders who want more visibility while riding, either in bad weather or at night, the Vio (8/10, WIRED Recommends) features the same MIPS protection, along with integrated LED lights wrapping completely around the helmet so drivers, pedestrians, and other cyclists can see the helmet’s lights (when lit) from any direction. There’s even a 200-lumen forward-facing headlight. It recharges via a micro-USB cable and lasts for three hours on a charge.

These are also great helmets for commuters. They have MIPS tech inside for better protection against rotational forces, and a pop-out logo plug that gives you a place to loop your bike lock through the helmet. Plus, they’re not totally ugly. Every helmet at Thousand is 30 percent off. Everything on its new Ride Shop is also 20 percent off.

This isn’t a crazy discount, but if you ride bikes or scooters and want to use your phone, Peak Design’s mount is extremely convenient and easy to use. Pick up the Everyday Case ($27) as well. Both are in our guide to the Best MagSafe Accessories, but you don’t need an iPhone to use it as Peak Design has Samsung and Google cases as well.

If reviews editor Julian Chokkattu’s review of the Montague M-E1 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) persuaded you to buy one—he did say it was “pretty darn close to perfection,” after all—then you may also want a carrying case ($125 value).

Metal pumps are more durable than plastic pumps, and this pump works with three common valve types. It can inflate tires up to 220 psi, which is plenty for road tires. Read more in our Best Bike Accessories guide.

I (Adrienne) own this lock. It’s heavy and unwieldy and I carry it in a backpack, but it’s the only thing that makes me feel OK about parking my Tern GSD S00 on a rack. Check out our guide to the Best Bike Locks for lighter picks, but this is a great deal on a massive piece of protection.
