The tire pressure will impact your ride and changing it will impact the feel of your board. It’s therefore important to try different settings to find what you like and suits your riding style.
The recommendation is to use your weight in lbs devides by 10 to get your optimal tire pressure.
For anyone using a metric system or want to do the calculations use my tire pressure calculator here.
From my experience, higher pressure feels stiffer and increase the responsiveness of weight-shifting and control. When lower 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 Vega tire. Experience riders have raised it over the recommendations to get a little more range. *Do this at your own risk.
The 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.
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
