How to Choose the Best Electric Bike Tire Size for You?

Now, electric bicycles are becoming more and more popular. So, what do you have to consider during the selection process?

You might be asking yourself, “Okay, so what tire size should I look for when buying an electric bike?”

Generally, a 700c tire is going to be narrower; it's going to provide less cushioning and reduced rolling resistance, therefore being more efficient. Because there is less cushioning, the ride will be a little harsher.

There is more air volume in a 26" tire, so when you hit an obstruction, the air in the tire actually absorbs some of that, and the ride is slightly more comfortable. 26” rims are more suitable for mixed terrain, so if you are going to be on- and off-road, you should consider them.

It is pretty rare to come across a twenty-nine-inch rim on an electric bike. If you were looking at one of those, you would probably be considering an off-road electric bike.

Of course, the size of the tire has nothing to do with the puncture, not that the bigger the tire, the less likely it is to blow out. If there is a problem with the tire, check it in time. If the tire blows out, stop using it immediately and have the tire repaired.
