The tires are designed for durability and safety for regular cycling activities and need to be checked before each use for proper inflation and condition. Proper inflation, care, and timely replacement will help ensure that your bike’s operational characteristics will be maintained, and unsafe conditions avoided.
Heybike recommends 45-60 PSI for the stock tires on the heybike. Always stay within the manufacturer’s recommended air pressure range as listed on the tire sidewall.
It is critically important that proper air pressure is always maintained in pneumatic tires. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to always maintain the air pressure rating indicated on pneumatic tires may result in the tire and/or wheel failure.
Inflate your tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a burst tire.
Even tires equipped with built-in, flat-preventative tire liners, like those that come with bikes from heybike, can and do get flats from punctures, pinches, impact, and other causes. When tire wear becomes evident or a flat tire is discovered, tires and/or tubes must be replaced before operating the bike, or injury to operators and/or damage to your bike from heybike could occur.
When changing a tire or tube, ensure that all air pressure has been removed from the inner tube prior to removing the tire from the rim. Failure to remove all air pressure from the inner tube could result in serious injury.
Using aftermarket tires or inner tubes, not provided by heybike may void your warranty, create an unsafe riding condition, or damage your bike. If required by law, ensure replacement aftermarket tires have sufficient reflective sidewall striping.
