The general rule for setting the tire pressure on the Onewheel is to take your weight in lbs and divide it by 10. Remember to include the weight of the protective gear, shoes, and clothes. For more carving go a bit higher pressure or reduce it to gain stability.
There’s some wiggle room for personal preference, so try and change the pressure up and down to get a feel for it.
The tire pressure makes a significant difference to the riding experience of the Onewheel, it affects the range, top speed, tire wear, and ride quality. Higher pressure is better for the range and makes the tire more round increasing the carvability. Reducing the pressure will make the tire more flat increasing the stability and adding traction to the road.
It’s also optimal with a lower pressure if you ride a lot off-road.
If you are having a Onewheel XR and are uncertain, here you can find the optimal pressure for your board.
It’s recommended to use a lower-tier pressure for beginners to get a more stable ride.
For street riding use higher tire pressure and lower it when hitting the trails. If you change your ride settings often it’s a good idea to invest in a digital battery-driven pump like Xiaomi Air Inflator. I have this one in my backpack at all times, to adjust the tire pressure or if needed pump some more air into it in case of a leak. Want to know more read my review of the Xiaomi Mi/S1 Portable Electric Air Compressor.
