Why is the tire pressure on my bike so low and when to regulate?
DealersSeptember 07, 2023
The pressure put into different types of tires depends on the condition of use and the users' preference. The tire pressure on fat bikes is low because the bigger or fatter the bike, the lower the pressure needed to support any weight on the bike. Fat bikes have tires that are 4 inches wide or more; a perfect example is the PXID cruiser which is 4.8 inches wide. Fat bikes can run comfortably with low pressure and allows you to ride in deep snow, loose sand, and mud. This is possible because the wide tires distribute the rider and bike weights.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to this problem because the ideal tire pressure for mountain biking depends on various factors, including the type of bicycle you are riding, the weather along the route, and your personal preferences. However, between 30 and 35 psi is the typical mountain bike tire pressure. The owner's manual or the manufacturer's website is the best place to get the suggested tire pressure for your particular bike model. You can also experiment with various pressures to determine what suits you best. Before starting a ride, always check your tires. If you lose traction or feel uneasy on the trail, adjust your tires as necessary.
