The correct tyre pressure for your bicycle tyres
Tyre pressure is related to the comfort and safety of your riding, so it’s important to choose the correct tyre pressure. In this article, we look at how to choose the best tyre pressure for your riding style and conditions.
The best tyre pressure for your bike depends on many factors: the kind of bike, the kind of tyres, rider weight, road conditions and weather conditions.
Most Aowea road bicycle carbon rims (clincher rim – inner width 18mm, outer width 25mm; tubular rim – 25mm width) fit ≥ 25c tyres.
Suggested tyre pressure:
|Kind of bike||Kind of tyre||Rider weight||Front wheel||Rear wheel||Adjust for weight|
|Road bike||Inner tube tyre (25C)||≤70Kg||90psi / 6.2bar||93psi / 6.4bar|| Add 2psi for every 5Kg over 70Kg|
Subtract 2psi for every 5Kg under 70Kg
|Tubeless tyre (25C)||80psi / 5.5bar||83psi / 5.7bar|
|Mountain bike||Inner tube tyre||≤70Kg||36psi / 2.5bar||38psi / 2.6bar||Add 1psi for every 5Kg over 70Kg|
|Tubeless tyre||26psi/ 1.8bar||28psi / 1.9bar|
|Cyclocross/Gravel bike||Inner tube tyre (35C)||≤70Kg||48psi / 3.3bar||50psi / 3.5bar||Add 1psi for every 5Kg over 70Kg|
|Tubeless tyre (35C)||36psi / 2.5bar||38psi / 2.6bar|
Schwalbe’s recommended tyre pressure:
|Tyre width||60kg / 132lb||85kg / 187lb||110kg / 242lb|
|23C||100psi / 7.0bar||115psi / 8.0bar||130psi / 9.0bar|
|25C||87psi / 6.0bar||100psi / 7.0bar||115psi / 8.0bar|
|28C||80psi / 5.5bar||94psi / 6.5bar||108psi / 7.5bar|
|32C||65psi / 4.5bar||80psi / 5.5bar||94psi / 6.5bar|
|37C||50psi / 4.0bar||72psi / 5.0bar||87psi / 6.0bar|
Set the correct tyre presure in your bike tyres is crucial, then you can achieve the best grip level and rolling resistance level.
