What is the maximum psi for bike tires?

Higher air pressure lets them roll easier and faster. A typical range for these would be between 80 and 130 psi, although racers can sometimes go as high as 160 psi. Quick tip if you’re caught inflating a road tire without a gauge and need to ballpark it: at 100 psi, a tire can barely be compressed with your thumb.

Should I inflate bike tires to max PSI?

To get your tire pressure sweet spot, you don’t need to look at a bike tire psi chart. Just start by inflating your tire to its maximum pressure (every tire has the maximum tire pressure marked on the side of the tire). Make sure you don’t exceed this number! Ride around for a while, then lower your pressure by 10 PSI.

Should you fill tires to max PSI?

Your tires’ max PSI almost always exceeds the recommended pressure. It isn’t advisable to fill your tire to this pressure for everyday driving. At max PSI, your car does not handle as well, braking is impaired, and you could risk dangerous blowouts.

Are Gatorskins fast?

Yes, Gatorskins are “slow” tires. Yes they are. Around 5-15 watts power loss per tire, compared to a range of “regular” and “race” tires. That means you could be wasting 10-30 watts vs other tire options.

What PSI should 700c tires be?

A typical road tire should be inflated to something between 90 and 120 PSI.
