Electric Bike: Thin Tire vs Fat Tire| Addmotor

By Sunnie | 11 April 2022 | 0 Comments
People often see two types of tires when choosing an e-bike, the thin tire electric bike and the fat tire electric bike. Both tires are different in size, maintenance needs, weight, price, and even pressure limits. As people have different riding needs, knowing how to choose a suitable tire is also important.

Thin Tires
Thin tire e-bikes were created for urban commuting. If you plan to ride on hard tar surfaces or asphalt, choose skinny, smooth, threaded commuter-style tires. These tires provide excellent grip and good handling.
Thin tires ride faster and roll faster in comparison to fat tires. The overall weight of skinny tires is lighter, which makes your bike lighter, and mobile e-bikes use less energy. It is easy to use. Thin tire e-bikes are usually faster because tires are born for speed.
To sum up, the characteristics of skinny tires are as follows:
1. Thin tire e-bikes are easier to handle, so they are suitable for new e-bike riders.
2. They are very efficient when covering large distances with ease.
3. They withstand more rolling resistance levels than fat tires
4. Thin tire electric bikes have fewer traction lines for easy movement along slippery surfaces
5. Thin-tire e-bikes are usually durable
The Addmotor's E-series city e-bikes, E43 and E53 are designed with 26"*2.3" puncture-resistant tires and have a 20Ah super-capacity battery, with a riding range of 125+ miles. It's the perfect choice for commuting to and from get off work.

Fat Tires
Fat tire e-bikes can be ridden on a variety of different terrains, but we feel that they are the best on off-road terrain and muddy and unstable terrain (such as beaches). Because fat tires are heavy, they are more stable which means that you are less likely to slip or lose your balance. However fat tires will cost more, mainly because they use more rubber. As the overall weight is relatively heavy, the mass is relatively large, the rolling resistance is large, and acceleration requires more power. But despite this, for outdoor sports enthusiasts, fat tire electric bicycles are still better than narrow tire electric bicycles.
Therefore, in general, the characteristics of fat tires are as follows
1. Fat tire e-bikes are great for climbers and trail trips
2. Fat tires can provide better shock absorption
3. Compared to thin tire e-bikes, they have a firmer grip, making them ideal for rough terrain.
4. E-bikes with fat tires are easier to brake and maneuver than those with thin tires.
5. Fat tire e-bikes are great for any type of weather because they are designed for all-weather flexibility.
6. Fat tires are generally safer compared to thin tire e-bikes.
If you don't know what to choose, then we sincerely recommend Addmotor M560 and Addmotor 340
