- What tyre pressure for CX?
With all this talk of CX, I’m going to give it a go.
So I run 110psi in my roadie tyres, and 25 or so in my tubeless MTB tyres.
Where do I start with my tubed clincher CX tyres?
I know it’s personal preference, but where’s a good start point. I weigh 13.5 stone, will be using 30mm Michelin Mud 2s. Want a bit of grip in the rooty bits, but avoid pinch flats.Posted 5 years agojonbaMember
I’ve run everything from 35 to 70.
I’d say start at 40 and see how much grip/give there is.
It depends on whether you are prepared to risk the occasional pinch flat or would rather have the grip.
Also I run lower pressures for racing than general riding as I can inspect the course so know if there are pinch flat opportunities – normally not many as they are muddy not rocky. General off road riding is a bit more unpredictablePosted 5 years ago
I run about 80psi in my Michelin Tracker tyres for my on/off road commute, fully loaded with 10kg of shite in my panniers. But here I’m actually going to enter a CX race!
Just stripped the mudguards and rack and other fluff off the Kaffenback, and fitted the Mich Muds. Will start at 35 psi and take it up the woods at the weekend for a try out.
Might need to video my first attempts at running mounts 😆Posted 5 years ago
