IRONMAN BOULDER TIP #1: Check Your Tire Pressure
A common misconception is that the higher your tire pressure is, the lower your rolling resistance is and the faster you'll go. This leads to many riders pumping their tires up to the maximum pressure rating which is often 120 psi. In reality, we don't ride on perfectly manicured roads (especially in Boulder) and maintaining rolling momentum is more beneficial than decreasing tire contact by upping the pressure. As an added benefit, you'll get better grip when cornering and will have a much more comfortable ride.
Check out the chart below for a rough idea on tire pressure for your weight and tire size (we always recommend running 5 psi higher on the rear tire as that is where the majority of your weight is). You should always take into account wheel width and never go above or below your tire ratings printed on the sidewall.
Tune in tomorrow for more race day tips as we prepare for #IMBoulder!
