Airing UP & Down

Is it really needed when you are out on the trails?


The answer to this question is absolutely. Whether you are on simple trails or intermediate ones, airing down your tires can significantly help your comfortability, traction, and prevent punctures.

Comfortability: If you trail ride, this should be one of the main reasons you air down your tires. When it comes to riding on rough terrain, not airing down your tires will give you a significant difference in ride comfortability and traction. Keeping your tires at standard PSI can not only give you an uncomfortable ride but can also knock you around and puncture your tires. Airing down your tires allows you to cover more surface area with the rubber of the tires and softening the blow by allowing your tire to absorb the tough impacts, rather than bounce off.

Traction: With Standard PSI, your tire will not be capable of gripping the terrain when you are trail riding. Lowering the PSI will allow your tire to deflate and more of your tire will be on the ground allowing your vehicle to gain more traction.

Preventing Punctures: Using normal PSI on the trails can cause punctures to your vehicle. Imagine a balloon that is filled completely and comes into contact with a sharp object. The balloon will instantly pop, right? Now imagine, if you were to deflate some of the balloon, and it comes into contact with that same object, it is less likely to pop. The same idea applies to lowering your tire PSI.
