Do you need special tires for e-bikes?

For standard pedelecs with pedal assistance up to 25 km/h no specific tires are stipulated by the legislators. But the loads and average speeds of these bicycles are also higher than in the case of normal bicycles. We therefore recommend only
certain tires as “E-Bike Ready 25”. Primarily, these are the tires of the Marathon and Energizer series as well as the comfort tires Big Apple and Big Ben.

What to bear in mind with speed e-bikes

For speed e-bikes you need a special approval for the tire equipment. Tires with ECE-R75 authorization valid throughout the European Union are the simplest solution in this case. All of our Energizer tires have the mark of conformity and are
approved for vehicles up to 50 km/h.

There are some Marathon sizes with the ECE-R75 mark of conformity. What are the differences between Energizer and Marathon?

The rubber compound: Marathon tires are particularly known for their extremely high mileage. The mileage of the Energizer models is comparable, but their main feature is their grip and hence the safety at high cornering speeds.
