Choosing E-bike Tire Size: Balancing Efficiency and Comfor

When choosing an e-bike, many consumers may wonder about tire size: Are bigger tires always better? Or, which size is more energy-efficient? Vanpowers interviewed several professional e-bike owners to hear their thoughts.

 

David.Z! Living in a small town in California, with 5 years of riding experience, he recently purchased the Vanpowers UrbanGlide-Ultra model. He embarked on a 656-mile journey along Highway One, riding 80 miles with friends. The Kenda® 27.5" *2.2"* tires provided excellent grip, whether for sudden braking or turning, and he felt comfortable even after long rides.

 The Vanpowers UrbanGlide-Ultra is a comfortable electric bicycle equipped with 27" by 20" tires for great stability. It's extremely economical, costing only 45 cents to travel 100 miles, which is just 1/20th of the fuel consumption of a car. Plus, it's easy to park and doesn't contribute to traffic congestion.

 

Alice.Zhou! An energetic outdoor cycling enthusiast who rides weekly, Alice is petite, so she chooses smaller tires, 27"*20". This enhances her agility and reaction speed. However, she mentioned discomfort after riding 100 miles, likely due to the seat. She prefers high-density foam material for better shock absorption and comfort.

Sharon.Ancell! A lively youngster who loves off-road biking. The Rubicon Trail in Nevada was her most challenging ride, a 22-mile journey taking about 2 hours. Her biggest takeaway was the comfort provided by her fat-tire e-bike with 27.5"*2.2" tires, Zoom® 30mm Suspension seat post and Zoom® 80 mm hydraulic suspension.

E-bike Tire Pressure (psi/kpa)

 

In fact, bicycle tires need more frequent checks than car tires, and narrow tires require more pressure than wide ones. Road tires typically need 80-130psi (544-884 Kpa), mountain tires range from 30-90psi (204-612Kpa), and hybrid tires are between 40-80psi (272-544Kpa). Heavier riders need higher pressure. If you weigh 72kg and ride a mountain bike, 30psi should be comfortable. A 90kg person might need about 5psi more, while a 60kg person might be comfortable at 25-27psi. Remember, ideal tire pressure can vary with conditions, terrain, weather, and tire size or brand. Regularly check your tire pressure to prevent leaks.

In conclusion, choosing the right e-bike tire size should be based on riding needs and environment. The ideal tire size should balance comfort, stability, and efficiency. So, do your research when buying an e-bike.
