On the tire flank you will find details concerning the maximum pressure for the relevant tire. These details are given in PSI, kPa or bar depending on the manufacturer. If the tire pressure is too high, the inner tubes may burst during your ride or the rims may break and at an excessively low tire pressure, the inner tube may become damaged. Take note of the details concerning the maximum and minimum tire pressures. A tire pressure corresponding to the indicated lower threshold is suitable for:
- Light riders.
- Riding on uneven surfaces.
- Riding with high level of suspension comfort at higher rolling resistance.
A tire pressure which corresponds to the indicated upper limit is suitable for:
- Heavier riders.
- Riding on even surfaces.
- Riding with low rolling resistance with lower suspension comfort.
Check regularly that the tire pressure falls in the indicated zone and is correctly adapted to the rider and riding plans. Fill the tires with air at least corresponding to the indicated lower threshold and at the most corresponding to the indicated upper threshold. Use the air pump with a pressure display in order to check the tire pressure when pumping up the tires.
Note: the indications on the maximum and minimum tire pressure.
