Recommended Tire Pressure for Your Electric Bike or Trike

The optimal tire pressure for your electric bike or trike depends on the specific tire model you have. You can find the recommended pressure range printed on the sidewalls of the tires.

For regular street riding aiming for comfort, inflating the tires a few PSI below their maximum is advisable. However, be aware that riding with lower pressures, especially over bumps, can increase the risk of pinch flats.

Please note that the tires on your bike or trike will not be fully inflated upon delivery. Before inflating, always ensure that the tire and tire bead are correctly seated just inside the rim.

For Different Terrains:

  • Snow: Lower tire pressure is beneficial in snowy conditions. It increases the tire's surface area, providing better traction. Consider reducing the pressure by 5-10 PSI below the normal recommended level.
  • Sand: Similar to snow, lower pressure in sandy conditions helps with traction. However, avoid going too low as it can strain the tire and rim. A reduction of 5-10 PSI below the standard recommendation should suffice.
  • Rough Terrain: For trails or rough terrain, a slightly lower pressure can provide better grip and a smoother ride. Adjust according to the roughness of the terrain, but always stay within the safe range specified on the tire.

Remember, tire pressure can greatly affect your ride's comfort, efficiency, and safety. It's essential to adjust it based on your riding conditions and personal preference.
