Tire Pressure Guide

For Tubeless Tire Assemblies
The information on this page is meant to clarify the importance of proper tire pressure for tubeless tire assemblies with Black Inc wheels.

All Black Inc wheels have been designed from the inside out where each part of the system has been considered with the goal of creating the fastest racing wheel possible.

 

After the hubs, spokes, and rims, one overlooked section but nonetheless is just as important, are the tire pressures used when using tubeless tires.

The recommended tire pressure information available on this page is meant as a guideline and starting point for your Black Inc wheels. After inflating to the recommended tire pressure value, it is necessary to slowly adjust the tire pressure to suit the users’ riding style, preference of comfort, grip and speed.

 

Ultimately the user must decide for themselves which is the best pressure to use while respecting the wheel’s and tire’s maximum tire rating.

Black Inc Wheel Maximum Recommended Tire Pressure

  • Road Racing / Specialty Wheels: 120psi (8.27bar)
  • All-Road: 110psi (7.58bar)

Tyre pressures above show in PSI

– Above tire pressure values are only recommendations that should be adjusted accordingly based on rider weight, preference and intended usage with a tubeless clincher tire.
– For optimal performance, it might be necessary to adjust the tire pressure by incremental pressures – – The recommended tire pressures above are for paved road usage only. For light off-road use such as gravel, please adjust tire pressure accordingly based on riding style and intended usage.
– For tubeless setups always follow the original tire manufacturer’s installation instructions to ensure a tight and secure fit between tire and rim. Always use original tubeless parts during installation.

  • With the advent of wider rim designs and with the selection of wider (23mm>) tires, since there is more volume with wider tires, it is possible to run lower tire and have an overall improved ride quality since the amount of tire and grip has increased due to the larger tire used.

 

  • For tubeless tire setups, please only use the original tubeless parts supplied as they are the only parts that have been verified for proper tire pressure retention.
Tubeless parts: Tubeless valves, tubeless rim tape, and compatible sealant for tire used.

 

  • Always check for adequate tire pressure before every bike ride. If the inflated tire pressure cannot be maintained for more than 24 hours, then it’s recommended to check all of the connecting tubeless parts for possible air leakage and or damage.
