WillemLove the design and the electric assistance. But the tyres are terrible (2 punctures in as many weeks). And the lack of mudguards will make that your back is covered with muck and dirt. But worse is the fact that also the removeable battery is in the line fire (or water). On one occasion in heavy rain the assistance even died on me though this could also had to do with an update of the bike.
Cowboy answerHello Willem,
Thanks for your review.
We realize that unexpected flat tyres are super frustrating, especially on new bikes. We have witnessed how flat tyres have impacted our customers last year and regret the frustration caused among our community.
So, we were pleased to offer solutions to help our customers enjoy the ride with more confidence and less anxiety, while maintaining the sleek design, ride feeling and comfort of our tyres.
Existing customers have received Flat-Away™ tyre liners. Flat-Away is a felt tape, reinforced with DuPont Kevlar® fibre, to help improve tyre’s puncture resistance. We tested the performance of this product with Cowboy riders on the field and conducted rigorous “nail puncture tests” in a German test laboratory. We learned that an original Panaracer tyre, fitted with a Flat-Away liner, offers 5x more protection than a Panaracer tyre alone.
Then, we decided to equip our newer batches of bikes with other tyres that have the same level of resistance and appearance as our former tyres reinforced with liners. We are thus confident that the riding experience of all our customers will be as it is supposed to: fun and enjoyable. Punctures might still occur if you ride on a sharp piece of glass or approach a curb at high speed, as it would with any other e-bike too.
If you had any assistance issues, you can always get in touch with our support in the App. They will help you out as quickly as possible.
