Tire Pressure Calculator

Tire pressure is a hot topic these days, as it should be. Tire technology has advanced, clincher tires have become as fast as tubulars, wider is better. Pressures are dropping fast. Although there are a lot of details that need to be considered, tire pressure is arguably the most important. SILCA has just introduced their online tire pressure calculator, and I recommend it as a great starting point for setting your tire’s pressures.

So you’ve used the calculator, what’s next? Notes. Take lots of notes, and adjust accordingly. Keep in mind that smooth equals fast, and safety comes first. Use the calculator as a tool, not as gospel. Lastly- give it time. If you’re used to high pressure 23s, it’ll feel weird. Good luck and let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
