THE BEST E-MTB TIRE PAIRS IN THE E-MTB MAGAZINE TEST
The E-MTB magazine (edition 04/20) has tested nine different pairs of tires from various manufactures to find out which combination is the best for the e-mountainbike. There was one thing the testers immediately agreed on: 'No part of the E-MTB changes the driving characteristics as dramatically as the tire'. E-Bikes entail extra weight in the form of a motor and battery and are generally driven at higher average speeds. This also affects the choice of the right e-Bike tire: while characteristics such as weight and rolling resistance are compensated for the engine, durability and puncture protection play a central role in providing an enjoyable riding experience. For this reason, there are tires which are specially matched to the requirements of e-bikers.
We were represented in the test with two different tire combinations, both of which were completely convincing. Our e-Bike specialist, Eddy Current, got the test recommendation in the category 'Extreme' and proves that it is made for hard E-MTB use. The combination of Magic Mary and the new Big Betty as the 'allrounder'-pair goes one better and is awarded the test winner!
