How can I avoid having a flat tire?
Contrary to popular belief, most electric scooter flat tires are NOT penetration punctures caused by the stereotypical nail-in-the-tire or other sharp objects. Pinch punctures caused by poor riding habits and lack of tire care are much more common.
In order for a penetration puncture to happen, the rider will first have to find a sharp object to roll over. (It’s harder to find than you think.) Next, the rider will have to roll over the object in the exact manner for it to pierce into the tire. Finally, the penetration must be deep enough to cut through BOTH the tire and the inner tube. Unless your route is mined with caltrops, you will have to be really unlucky for this to happen.
A pinch puncture, however, can happen simply if you don’t take good regular care of your scooter or don’t ride conscientiously.
There are three important things you can do to avoid tire punctures. To help you remember it, we have organized them with the acronym “AIR”, pun intended. They stand for
• Add a Sealant,
• Inspect Regularly for any physical damage and always have it well-inflated at the level written on the tire
• Ride Sensibly slowing down before any obstacle and avoiding big obstacles and water in general
