Mach1's expertise in this field
The mechanical design of the wheel is essential for the robustness of an electric bike, which is always heavier than a conventional bike; it must also be able to withstand heavy loads for e-cargo bikes, up to several hundred kilos.
Wide rims are therefore preferred, in sizes adapted to each use: 29" for mountain bikes, most often 27.5" for urban use, but 20" for folding electric bikes. It is a matter of choosing between stability, grip and handling of the wheel. For the e-MTB, you should opt for a Tubeless Ready rim, to avoid the risk of slipping at low pressure.
The 14G or 13G double-butted spokes are very suitable for e-bike wheels, in steel or stainless steel for more resistance to intensive use.
