How To Pump The Tires In 4 Easy Steps

Feb 27 2023

Electric bikes have become increasingly popular in recent years, providing a convenient and eco-friendly mode of transportation. However, like any bike, electric bikes require regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly and safely. One important aspect of e-bike maintenance is ensuring that the tires are properly inflated. In this blog, we will outline how to pump the tires on a C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike in 4 easy steps. C3strom Astro Pro is one of the fastest E-bike, and for this kind of hyperbike, maintenance is rather important, in order to make the bringing out its full performance.

Step 1: Check the recommended tire pressure

Before pumping up your C3strom Astro Pro’s tires, it is important to check the recommended tire pressure. The recommended tire pressure can typically be found on the sidewall of the tire itself or in the owner’s manual. It is important to note that different types of tires require different amounts of pressure, so be sure to double-check the recommended pressure for your specific tire type.

For the C3strom Astro Pro, the recommended tire pressure is typically between 17.5-35 p.s.i. This pressure range is ideal for the class 3 bike’s electric motor, which can reach speeds of up to 28 mph. Keeping the tires properly inflated not only ensures a smoother and safer ride but also maximizes the bike’s performance and battery life.

Step 2: Prepare your pump

Once you have determined the recommended tire pressure for your C3strom Astro Pro, it’s time to prepare your pump. Make sure your pump is compatible with the valve type on your bike’s tires. If your pump is not compatible with your valve type, you may need to use an adapter to make it work.

Before attaching your pump to the valve, ensure that it is properly assembled and ready to use. Some pumps require specific attachments or settings, so it’s always a good idea to double-check the pump’s instructions to ensure that it’s ready to go.

Step 3: Attach the pump to the valve

With your pump prepared, it’s time to attach it to the valve on your C3strom Astro Pro’s tires. If you have Presta valves, you will need to unscrew the nut at the top of the valve to allow air to flow through. If you have Schrader valves, simply attach the pump nozzle to the valve and press down on the valve pin to release any trapped air.

It’s important to ensure that the pump nozzle is properly attached to the valve to prevent air from escaping while pumping. If the nozzle is loose, it may result in inaccurate tire pressure readings or an improperly inflated tire.

Step 4: Inflate the tire

With the pump attached to the valve, it’s time to inflate the tire to the recommended pressure. Begin by pumping air into the tire and monitoring the pressure with a tire gauge. If your pump has a built-in gauge, you can use that to monitor the pressure. Otherwise, use a separate tire gauge to ensure that the pressure is within the recommended range.

As you pump, pay attention to the resistance of the tire. When the tire starts to become difficult to pump, it is likely to be close to the recommended pressure. Once you have reached the recommended pressure, remove the pump nozzle from the valve and replace the valve cap.

Final Thoughts

Properly inflated tires are crucial for a smooth, safe, and efficient ride on your C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike. By following these four easy steps, you can ensure that your bike’s tires are properly inflated and ready for your next ride. Remember to check the recommended tire pressure before pumping, ensure that your pump is properly prepared and attached to the valve, and monitor the pressure as you pump. With a properly inflated tire, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable and efficient ride, while also reducing the risk of punctures or damage to your tires.

It’s also important to check your bike’s tire pressure regularly, especially if you use it frequently or on long rides. Tires can lose pressure over time, so it’s a good idea to check them before each ride, or at least once a week if you use your e-bike regularly. A tire that is underinflated can result in poor handling, decreased range, and increased wear on your bike’s components, while an overinflated tire can reduce traction and increase the risk of punctures or damage to your tire.

In addition to proper tire inflation, there are other important aspects of e-bike maintenance to consider, such as cleaning and lubricating the drivetrain, checking and adjusting the brakes, and inspecting the bike for signs of wear and tear. By maintaining your e-bike regularly, you can prolong its lifespan, improve its performance, and ensure a safer and more enjoyable ride.


Proper tire inflation is an essential aspect of e-bike maintenance that should not be overlooked. By following these four easy steps, you can ensure that your C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike’s tires are properly inflated and ready for your next ride. Remember to check the recommended tire pressure, prepare your pump, attach the pump to the valve, and inflate the tire to the recommended pressure. With properly inflated tires, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable, efficient, and safe ride on your e-bike. Don’t forget to also maintain other aspects of your e-bike, such as the drivetrain, brakes, and overall condition, to ensure its longevity and safety.
