Default Duro Wildlife Leapord tire pressure


If you run a big downhill tyre like the Duro in a tubeless setup you can
keep the same pressure to resist bottoming out and making it roll easily
while making it smoother over lumps and bumps...

Default Duro Wildlife Leapord tire pressure


I reckon a good starting pressure is about 1psi per 10lbs of rider
weight.




Good suggestion. I run the Intense DH 3" at 15-20# for my 200# weight,
the lower setting (15#) is better for slow, muddy stuff, esp when cold,
then I bump up to 20# when things warm up and I do more drops.

My son rides the Wildlife at he's running ~12-15# this winter and his
weight is ~115#.

Note that rim width plays a part too, where a wider profile will
flatten out your tire, so I would think that a shorter sidewall would
lead to a stiffer ride at lower pressures.

I'd add a thumbs up for the Intense DH 3" tire, it is hands above more
stabile than the Wildlife and just as grippy, plus very long wearing. On
the downside, lighter riders like my son can't abide them cuz they are a
wee bit on the stiff side.
