Have mounted the schwalbe NN soft front and speedgrip in the back. Both in super trail, great tyres, lot of grip and still able to pedal to 30 kmh on the flats.
I believe that its 20mph in the USA (ie 32kph).Is 30 kmh the speed at which pedal assist terminates?
Maybe a stupid question but here it goes: do I need to search for E-Type tyres or "regular" MTB tyres are good enough for a E-MTB bike?
I thought that because of the weight of the bike we should get more adequate tyres.Not a stupid question at all. Standard MTB tires are totally fine to use on emtb’s.

True that hehhheI think it’s safe to say that Maxxis is one of the most popular tire brands on the market. They don’t offer e-bike specific tires.
I think that’s more or a marketing gimmick, I mean if you’re a 180lbs riding a 60lb eBike how is that any different than a 210lb rider on a 30lb enduro bike?

I was looking at these: Maxxis Rekon 29x2.40" WT TR EXO Dual 60 Folding tyre
What do you think?
A mix of everything: sometimes a lot of mud, some rocks, other times some hard pack dirt.
What do you mean by "fail at the bead" ?After having 2 DHR-II fail at the bead halfway through their life - both have only been half worn when failure occurred, I have switched to a Vittoria Martello on the rear, still running a DHF up the front.
Will see how the Vittoria holds up.
I had a DD High Roller fail at the bead but it was stabbed by a root to cause the failure. Wasn't too upset as it was a shit tyre anyway and I was looking for an excuse to upgrade.What do you mean by "fail at the bead" ?
What is a "600 mile assegai"? I use Assagai 3C EXO+ and DD MaxxGrip on DT Swiss EX 511 and RaceFace Arc30 rims without any issues with running them tubeless. Installing the Assagai 3C EXO+ and DD MaxxGrip with Cushcore is also not too difficult. DH tires with Cushcore can be a bit of a challenge tho. What kind of rims where you putting the tire on? If you don't access to a compressor, you may need to use a CO2 inflator to seat the bead on tires that have been taken on and off a number of times. YMMVi noticed the maxxis go on easily , almost too easily. I tried putting a 600 mile assegai on and the beads were so loose i couldnt get the air to catch, so i could see some stretch happening
Same type of failure on 2 separate tyresWhat do you mean by "fail at the bead" ?
