Designed specificially for electric bicycles. These tires were designed to optimize battery life, tire longevity and power transmission.
Optimize battery life thanks to rolling efficiency
Specific rubber compound for electric bikes.
Michelin guarantees the tire is suitable for use with electric bikes. The grip and longevity of the tires have been tested.
MICHELIN tires with the e-bike ready label can be used on electric bikes (under 20 mph).
E-Bike usage is very demanding for both tires and rims due to the permanent additional torque of the electric engine and the extra weight of the bike.
1. To check the appropriate inflation pressure before each ride.
Michelin strongly recommends to respect the minimum inflation pressure according to the weight of the cyclist: information available here:
2. To regularly check the condition of your tires (cuts, cracks, …) which can be damaged due to:
a. repeated pinch shock (tire pinched against root, hole, pebble, sidewalk, etc…)
b. terrain aggression linked to off-road usage
c. damaged wheel (will insidiously harm the tire’s bead)
3. To regularly check the condition of your rims and especially the rim hook in contact with your tires (bead zone) for the same reasons.
For a better experience as to the use of your tires, Michelin advises to use rims respecting ETRTO and/or ISO standards
