Best insurance for your electric bike

Whether the accident is a simple mishap or a someone's negligence, and if it happens on a ride, at home, or in transit, it's covered.

Insured at full value

Your e-bike is worth to us what it’s worth to you. We do not depreciate your e-bike so in case of a total loss you can get yourself a bike of similar value

Crash Damage

Your e-bike is covered if it’s damaged in a crash. On a road or trail, a group ride or a race, if it’s damaged in an accident, it’s covered.

Theft Coverage

If your e-bike is stolen from your home, car, workplace or any other secure location, it’s covered.

Velosurance for electric bikes

One of the unfortunate possibilities is being involved in accidents that result in damage to your e-bike or cause medical injuries to those involved. The Velosurance cyclist policy insures against accidental damage to the bike, and the optional liability coverage defends the rider against injury or damage claims. Home and renters insurance policies aren’t designed to specifically provide bike coverage and many of them exclude coverage altogether if the bike has an electric motor. One way to plan for the unexpected during your ride is to solicit help from someone who has experience with unexpected cycling situations.

Avid cyclists, the founders of Velosurance recognized the need for insurance protection that is specific to a rider’s needs, whether a bicycle is electric-assist or pedal-power. Our policies are highly customizable and intended to protect riders from the risks associated with their lifestyle. Coverage is available in the US to insure all Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes capable of a maximum top speed of 28 MPH. The policy insures the cyclist anywhere in the US, Canada, or anywhere in the world with optional Worldwide Coverage.

insured at full value

Unlike traditional insurance policies that often factor in depreciation, we recognize the value of bicycles, including e-bikes, and ensure that policyholders are made whole in case of a claim. This means that even if the e-bike has depreciated in value since its purchase, Velosurance will reimburse the policyholder based on the bike's purchase price.

Because it's a standalone policy, claims do not impact the rates of homeowners or renters insurance policies you may already have. This means that filing a claim with Velosurance for a bicycle-related incident will not result in increased premiums or policy adjustments for other types of insurance coverage.

E-bike bike crash damage coverage

On a road or trail, a group ride or a race, if it’s damaged in an accident, it’s covered.

crash damage coverage

Accidents are one of the only downsides of biking. While it’s most common for novice and intermediate riders to be involved in a crash, even the most experienced of riders are bound to suffer an occasional wipeout. A policy from Velosurance provides comprehensive coverage for e-bikes (including e-mtb), providing reliable coverage for crashes and accidental damage.

Whether your e-bike sustains damage due to a fall, collision, or unforeseen circumstances, Velosurance takes care of the expenses incurred in restoring your bike to its pre-damage condition. In fact, you don't have to be riding the bike for the damage to occur: the bike can be damaged when being transported by a car or in possession of an airline or a common carrier, like FedEx or UPS.

E-bike theft coverage

If your e-bike is stolen from your home, car, workplace or any other secure location, it’s covered.

theft coverage

We go above and beyond to offer comprehensive coverage for e-bikes against theft, ensuring peace of mind for owners whether they are at home or away.

When it comes to theft at home, we cover e-bikes that are securely stored within the premises. Should a theft occur, policyholders can confidently file a claim and provide the necessary documentation, such as a police report, to support their case.

Whether an e-bike is stolen from a public location, while locked up outside, or even taken from a locked vehicle, it is covered. To mitigate the risk of theft, policyholders are encouraged to employ precautionary measures like using high-quality locks and following best practices for securing their e-bikes.

We cover Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes

Most states in the USA follow the Federal government's definition for what defines an electric powered bicycle, most commonly termed as e-bikes, and e-bikes are classified with a simple, straightforward approach known as the “3-Class” system. A Velosurance e-bike policy is available to cover Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes with an all risk, stated value policy that does not depreciate the bike value no matter when the bike was purchased. Medical Payments, Personal Liability, and Uninsured Motorist limits are available as optional coverage.

Class 1

E-bikes (and E-MTBs) that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and have a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph

Class 2

E-bikes that have a maximum speed of 20 mph as well, but are throttle-assisted.

Class 3

E-bikes that are pedal-assist, may have throttle (in many states), and a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph.

We cover all popular e-bikes

The cost to insure an electric bike is no different than insuring a pedal-power bike and the Velosurance cyclist policy offers the same coverage to both bicycle types. If you expect to be spending a bit of time in the saddle and want to ride with peace of mind of knowing you’re covered for a myriad of situations, consider bike insurance.

Coverages and features

Velosurance core policy offers must-have protection such as accidental damage, theft, or loss in transit. Each policy can be customized by adding additional coverages such as liability protection, uninsured motorist coverage, and medical gap coverage.

Total Loss by Theft

Bikes are very easy to steal and equally difficult to recover and a hefty U-lock doesn’t guarantee that your bicycle will remain yours when you return. Velosurance provides the peace of mind when your bike is stolen or damaged in the process.

Medical Coverage

If you’re hurt, we'll cover some of your medical bills, up to the policy limit. This coverage pays to supplement the deductible of your personal health insurance policy.

Any Crash or Accidental Damage

The cyclist insurance policy will pay to replace the bike when the bike is accidentally damaged beyond repair. If the damage can be repaired, the policy will pay all the costs associated with the repair. Cosmetic damage is excluded.

Damage or Loss in Transit

Bikes often get damaged in transit, by airline and courier services alike. Filing a claim with these is a notoriously difficult process with a questionable outcome. Velosurance covers your bike while it is on it’s way to your destination.

Electric Bicycle Coverage

We cover all electrically assisted Class 1, 2 and 3 bikes with a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph All coverages available for conventional bikes also apply to e-bikes.

Liability Protection

We will protect you from personal liability (injury, sickness, death, or damage to property) you cause while riding your bike.

Worldwide Coverage

If your travels take you outside of the USA and Canada we can extend the policy's physical damage and theft coverage worldwide for a reasonable additional premium. This also covers the bike while in transit by the airline.

Your bike - your choice

Nationwide Bike Shop Repair. It's your bike and where you get the bike repaired is your choice.

Gear and apparel

If your apparel, such as helmet, shoes, glasses or riding kit is damaged in an accident, it's covered up to $500. Spare parts, such as a racing wheelset are also covered up to $500, up to $1,000 per policy term.

Race Coverage

Damage due to a crash while racing is covered with an optional coverage. In the heat of a race, the focus on speed often outweighs concerns for safety, leaving little margin for error. In the unfortunate event of a crash, the racing coverage option will provide coverage for your bike.

Why Velosurance is best for your E-bike

Not all types of insurance are created equal. Velosurance levels the playing field by offering a stand-alone bike insurance policy, where claims will not affect your homeowner or renters policy premiums.

We are riders too

Bicycle prices increase every year and cyclists who are serious about their sport are spending big money on high value bikes. Other forms of insurance, like homeowners and renters insurance, do a poor job insuring high value bicycles so we founded Velosurance to fix that.

Velosurance provides a stand-alone, no bike value depreciation, bicycle insurance policy to replace the cobbled together, sub standard coverages offered by traditional insurance.

We are cyclists just like you, and we understand that when your bike gets damaged in an accident you want the shortest possible downtime. We make it our mission to see that your claim check arrives before the repair parts do and you get back pedaling as soon as you want to.
