When riding your Onewheel Pint / Pint X the tire pressure will impact your ride and changing it will impact the feel of your board. It’s therefore important to try different pressure settings to find what you like and what suits your riding style.
The optimal tire pressure in psi for Onewheel Pint and Pint X is to take your weight in lbs divided by 10.
For anyone using a metric system or who want to do the calculations use my tire pressure calculator here.
The Onewheel Pint and Onewheel Pint X use the same tier and therefore has the same recommended tire pressure.
As a Pint rider from my experience, higher pressure feels stiffer and increases the responsiveness of weight-shifting and control of the board. When lowering the psi the board becomes a bit looser and more forgiving. This is why it’s recommended to be on the lower side as a beginner.
Future Motion says not to go over 20 PSI on the stock tire. I have and many experienced riders have raised it over the recommendations to get a little more range. *Do this at your own risk.
The big drawback of lower PSI is the reduction in both speed and range. The benefits are a softer, more squishy ride and you will reduce the impacts of bumpy roads, rocks, or other obstacles. Making a lower pressure preferable for trails and off-road riders.
I usually ride on the high side of my weight (75kg) and ride with a tire pressure of 17-18 PSI in my Onewheel Pint.
Future Motion states the pressure for the Onewheel Pint tire to be between 14 and 20 PSI.
MIN – 14 PSI
MAX – 20 PSI
WARNING: Exceeding the recommended maximum pressure of 20 PSI (1.4 bar) could damage your Onewheel and result in injury. It will also void your warranty. CAUTION: Riding Onewheel with a flat or under-inflated tire wall will void your warranty.Future Motion
