Hard Vs Soft Tyre Compound | How Does Tyre Choice Affect Battery Life?

Published on April 1st 2018


Does tyre choice impact on battery usage, watts and power delivery on a hard ride out on your E MTB? We've got a suspicion that it does, so we sent Steve out on a well known loop with some hard and soft compound tyres to see the effects. Subscribe: http://embn.me/subscribenow Our shop: http://embn.me/3f We chose tyres from the same manufacturer for this test, purely to erase the possibility that one company's 'hard' tire isn't far off the other company's 'soft' tyre. This way we have a level playing field of what a single manufacturers considers hard and soft! So here's a straight up comparison of how grip, traction and compound of your tyres can affect power, battery use and effort levels, and in turn how that affects your lap times!
