When parking your Carqon inside, it is not necessary to make use of a bike cover. Anyhow, if you park your bike outside, Carqon strongly advises you to make use of a bike cover in order to enhance the life cycle of your bike. Carqon offers a bike cover which is made of a sturdy nylon with water-repellent coating. This material is often used in water sports and is water resistant to make sure the bike will stay dry during rainfall. Off course there are other alternative bike covers available as well, but please make sure the quality meets the requirements of a proper bike cover in order to protect your Carqon well against different weather influences.
