The correct type of inner tube you would need for your bike is based on the valve type, and the size of the tyre. The information will be printed on the side of your tyre. If you have for example a 29" wheel and your tyre has ' 29" x 2.35" ' on the side and it has a Schrader valve, then you can use the 29 x 2.2-2.5 (Schrader) product on this page because your tyre width sits within this range.
Electric Bike Tyres & Tubes
Bicycle inner tubes and tyres work in tandem to ensure a smooth and safe ride.
Inner tubes, crafted from butyl or latex rubber, fit within tyres, holding air pressure to maintain their shape. These flexible tubes provide the cushioning and shock absorption essential for comfortable rides. Paired with the tyre's tread and structure, they determine grip, handling, and performance on various terrains.
Compatibility between tube and tyre size is crucial for optimal performance. Regular checks for wear, proper inflation, and carrying spare tubes during rides ensure uninterrupted cycling adventures, promising reliability and safety on the road or trail.
Although many eBikes come as standard with the optimum tyres based on each bikes rider case, some riders prefer to change them to their preference. We also offer puncture protection in the form of Slime Tubes for city and commuter bikes to full tubeless conversions for MTB's. It's important to note if you opt for us to fit a tubeless setup, the original tyres that come with the bike must be tubeless compatible.
Schrader and Presta are the two most commonly used valves used on modern bicycles. A Schrader valve is the same as the valves used on vehicles. Its wider, has a valve which is actuated by the pump used to inflate it and used most commonly on mountain and hybrid style bikes. Presta is much thinner, has a small screw top which needs to be undone before pumping up and is more commonly found on road bikes due to its ability to hold much higher pressures.
Tyres are arguably more complicated than most would prefer. Although there are thousands of options, there are multiple things to consider. The construction of the bead, the type and width of wheel it will be mounted on, the frame/fork clearance, intended terrain, the list goes on.
