Mountain Bike Tire Pressure Calculator. In the past, riders tended to focus more on tire cross-section. As I noted at the start, the most efficient mountain bike tire pressure will end up being a compromise at some point in your ride.
From versatile, puncture-resistant, all-weather tire options to aerodynamic race tires and aggressively-treaded mountain bike tires, there is a Bontrager tire built to bring more traction and performance to any ride. Steps for optimising tyre pressure for mountain bikes. But Scott, Blake and Neil are here to give a full comprehensive guide to setting your tyre pressures.
A general rule of thumb states that heavy riders need more pressure.
Bontrager has spent over a decade developing our comprehensive lineup of road, mountain, and hybrid bike tires.
It can dramatically change the experience of a mountain bike ride. Schwalbe has decided to make life easier for their MTB customers by creating the Pressure Prof, an online calculator that helps trail or DH riders figure out what pressures they should be running. The Pressure Prof takes nine different factors into account when calculating its suggestions for ideal pressures.
