Need a special tire for an E-bike?
- In standard pedelecs that have motor assist up to 25
km/h, there is no legal requirement for a special tire. But
even with these bikes, loads and average speeds are
higher than in regular bikes, therefore we recommend
only certain tires as “E-Bike Ready 25”.
What should you look out for with faster E-bikes?
Special tires are necessary for fast E-bikes. The
best solution is tires with ECE-R75 certification, valid
throughout Europe. All our Energizer tires bear the mark
and are valid on vehicles up to 50 km/h.
Some Marathon sizes have also the ECE-R75 mark.
What’s the difference between Energizer and Marathon?
It is in the compound. A Marathon is renowned for its
extremely high mileage. The service life of the Energizer
models is not bad, but the main focus is on grip and thus
safety in high speed cornering.
