Onewheel tire pressure

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. A good start is around 17 PSI (1.2 bars).

Recommended Tire Pressure

Here is a list of the recommended starting points when dialing in the optimal tire pressure for your board. Keep in mind that the Onewheel Pint and Pint X usually come with a pressure of around 20 psi from the factory so there might be a need to reduce it down depending on your weight.

Here is a tire pressure calculator.

The Onewheel Pint and Onewheel Pint X use the same tier and therefore have the same recommended tire pressure.

The Ride Impact of the Tire Pressure

Higher tire pressure will lead to a more responsive ride, increased range, and longer tire life. However, it can also result in a bumpier ride and reduced traction, especially on uneven or loose surfaces.

Lower tire pressure can provide a softer, more forgiving ride, improved traction on various terrains, and reduced impact from bumpy roads, rocks, or other obstacles. However, it will also lead to reduced range due to increased rolling resistance and potentially less stability at higher speeds.

It is important to note that the optimal tire pressure for a rider depends on their weight, experience level, and terrain. For new Onewheel Pint riders, it is recommended to use a lower tire pressure for more stability, while advanced riders may prefer higher tire pressure for a stiffer and more responsive ride. Riders should experiment with different tire pressures to find what feels best for them.

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.

What is stated in the manual

Future Motion states the pressure for the Onewheel Pint tire to be between 14 and 20 PSI. This is a wide range and will not give you any guidance to your optimal tire pressure.

Many experienced riders have raised it over the recommendations to get a little more range.

MIN – 14 PSI
– 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.
