What are solid tires?
Wide solid tires are just that – solid. They are made from solid materials, usually rubber or polyurethane foam, and there is no air inside them. These materials not only provide structural integrity and durability, but they won't get a flat, the main selling point. Having wide tires will allow you to ride over bumps and potholes without worrying about losing control of the electric scooter.
The two most commonly used solid tires for electric scooters are honeycomb and fully solid.
- Honeycomb: Honeycomb tires are solid tires with a ribbed construction and are more lightweight than traditional solid tires. In addition, the 'air pockets' give the ride a cushion feel and supports the suspension well.
- Filled solid tires: These are tires filled with foam, rubber, or a polymer filling. They might be stiff and slightly heavier but highly durable and well-constructed.
