What's The Fastest Tyre Pressure For A Road Bike? | GCN Does Science
Published on July 1st 2018
Suscribirse a GCN en Español: http://gcn.eu/Suscribirse Is a higher tyre pressure faster? Is a lower pressure more comfortable? Emma conducts an experiment to determine the fastest tyre pressure on a rough road surface. She tested all the way from 119 psi (8.2 bar) to 29 psi (2 bar), the results were surprising!

Emma admits in hindsight that she may have made some changes to the experiment to make the results a little more reliable. However, the data still highlights a very interesting trend and definitely suggests that the old-school beliefs about tyre pressure may be outdated. We hope this might inspire you to conduct your own little experiment. If you do, let us know how it goes and what data you discover! What tyre pressure do you use on your bike?
