Recommended Tire Pressures

You may ask how much psi for my carbon road wheels?What is the suitable tire pressures?The article will tell you the info to guide you get a recommended tire pressures.

It is different when you get recommended tire pressures between clincher tires wheels and clincher tires wheels.

Standard Clincher Tires With Inner Tubes

Maximum pressure for using our wheels with clincher tires with inner tubes fitted is 120psi, however we believe best performance is achieved at below 110psi for all riders. Recommended pressures for clincher tires are slightly higher than tubeless to prevent pinch flats.

Tubeless Tires

Maximum pressure for using our wheels with tubeless tires set-up tubeless is 100psi, however we believe best performance is achieved at below 100psi for all riders. Recommended Pressures are lower than clincher to reach the lowest rolling resistance and obviously pinch flats are not an issue.

Below Chart is our recommended tire pressure.

IMPORTANT - Please check, and never exceed, the maximum recommended tire pressures on the side of your tire.

More Info About Tire Pressure

Since John Dunlop patented his experimental "pneumatic tire" in 1888, cyclists have lined up to buy his marvellous invention. Tires were glued on at first, then wired into place on the rim. It took the motor industry a few years to adopt Dunlop's invention, and by that time, rubber tires had been thoroughly investigated on bicycles. Bigger wheels rolled better than small ones, and fatter tires gave a better grip on the road than skinny ones. Thick tires resisted the necessary evil of punctures, but pedalling them was hard work. All these contradictions had to be resolved by the tire companies. 

Finally, a series of compromises was worked out. Racers used skinny tires with smooth treads and supple sidewalls, inflated to high pressures expressed in pounds per square inch (psi). The butcher's boy needed thick tires for puncture resistance at lower pressures and a long life carrying heavy loads. The postman's bike was somewhere in between the two extremes. A series of myths arose based on tire pressure.

Manufacturers printed an extremely wide range of minimum and maximum tire pressures on tire sidewalls – information which was useless to the individual cyclist. Still, the old myths have been debunked over the last fifteen years as the MTB industry took a closer look at the pressure an individual cyclist requires for the desired blend of road holding, speed, and comfort.

The first legend to be demolished was that high-pressure skinny tires mean speed. Scientific experiments found that a rider weighing, say, 155 lbs, using 28mm tires at 60 psi would completely outperform his old-fashioned adversary from the 1980s, who lost out with 120 psi in 20mm rock-hard covers. The tire with lower pressure and larger cross-section has superior comfort, road holding, speed and puncture resistance. These days, pro-road men are riding tires, sometimes even 30mm wide, that suit the surfaces they'll be competing on. And they do so at pressures derived from their body weight – or the weight of cycle and rider combined.

But what's an amateur to do if they want to find the optimum pressure to put into a specific tire? Go to the internet, and you'll find a wealth of easy-to-use tire pressure calculation apps. Enter your exact weight and the tire diameter to be used, then click on CALCULATE.

A dainty lady of some 110 lbs will be told to run her fat bike tires at just under 20 psi. A 200-pound bruiser will get a recommendation of 130 psi for his 23-mm road tires.

Be aware that such figures require fine-tuning. Use that ballpark psi figure as your starting point and experiment by using 5 psi, more or less, until the process yields a pressure you like. If you're using tubeless, this fine-tuning process will need to be extended a further 1,5 psi from the bottom end. Hook-less tubeless tires are worth trying at up to 5psi less than what the apps calculate.
