Inner Tube 10 x 2.50 Straight Valve
INNER-10X-2-50-STRAI Electric Scooter 10” x 2,5” Straight Valve
Many electric scooter enthusiasts choose to fit pneumatic tyres for riding comfort. This type of tyre cushions potholes and uneven ground, dulling vibrations. Unfortunately, the inner tube inside, responsible for a comfortable ride, is a part prone to damage.
You are just returning home along the same route as usual, with only a few minutes of riding left, when you sense that something is wrong with the vehicle.
You note air escaping from the wheel; you've probably stepped on a nail or other sharp object. To make sure the punctured inner tube doesn't spoil your plans for the week, always have at least two spare inner tubes at home.
The rubber of the scooter inner tube has insulating and sealing properties. That’s why it maintains adequate air pressure even during prolonged rides.
Inner Tube Maintenance
Here are some tips to make sure a new inner tube lasts longer:
- Check your tyre pressure regularly: Too little pressure leads to damage to the inner tube, and too much pressure causes premature tyre wear. Adjust the pressure according to the scooter manufacturer's recommendations.
- Inspect the tyres for any items that could damage the inner tube (e.g. glass, nails, small stones). If you see an unnecessary item, remove it carefully.
- Check tread wear: The tyre tread protects the inner tube from sharp objects on the road. If it’s worn, replace the tyre with a new one.
- Drive carefully: Avoid driving on potholes and sharp stones that may damage the inner tube.
- Store the scooter properly: If you don’t use your scooter for a long period, store it in a dry and cool place. Avoid direct sunlight that affects the elasticity of the rubber.
How to Choose an Inner Tube for the Electric Scooter?
- Start by checking your vehicle's tyre size. The most popular are 8.5- or 10-inch models. If you are unsure, check the manufacturer's markings.
- Next, check the valve type of the inner tube you have just replaced. This inner tube has a straight valve, but you may also encounter a bent valve at 45 degrees or 90 degrees.
- Finally, check the width of the inner tube you’re replacing.
