Tire pressure?

529 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Appendage

Sorry if this is an old topic but:

What is a good tire pressure for WTB Nanoraptors with a 180-185 pound rider? I suppose I could just experiment but I hoped that someone could help me avoid a couple of flat tires. I tried 40 psi today and it seemed to work well but I'm not sure how much at risk this puts me for pinch flats.

all depends on how/where you ride. Im about the same weight and usually run mid 30s (i am runnin closer to 40 though now that ive gon fs for less resistance) for pressure. At 40 psi I wouldnt worry much about pinchflats, long as you have an iota of riding ability
