I keep getting pinch flats on the back tyre when i have anything less than ~35 PSI. Currently swapping between Nobby Nic and Ralph but have the same issue with both. At this pressure the back end seems to step out too easily cornering. I usually get pinch flats in rock gardens or off drop-offs, i do try soak up most of the brunt with my knees.
I'm hoping to convert to tubeless, but reading reviews many seem to split sidewalls after a few rides, and similarly with tubes get pinch flats all the time.
Do the snake-skin sidewalled tyres offer any more protection against pinch flats, or is just a little more resistant to cuts?
Should I be using a different tyre?
Im just over 12 stone, and have about 25 PSI in the front with no issues.
What pressure do you run in the rear tyre?
I'm just concerned that if I run tubeless I will either split the sidewalls or damage my wheel...
