Do you need special tyres for e-bikes?

For standard pedelecs with pedal assistance up to 25 km/h no specific tyres 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 tyres as “E-Bike Ready 25”. Primarily, these are the tyres of the Marathon and Energizer series as well as the comfort tyres 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 tyre equipment. Tyres with ECE-R75 authorization valid throughout the European Union are the simplest solution in this case. All of our Energizer tyres 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 tyres 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.
