Pressure is another key factor, as mentioned in the video, and
something we'll be addressing again in another blog. The correct
pressure can make a world of difference to how the tyre performs,
how the wheel feels, how the whole ride feels. It's something many
of us probably don't consider enough.
While we don't expect to see people racing up Ventoux on 40mm
tyres, for the majority of riding other than epic climbs, where you
want to keep the weight as low as you can, wider tyres makes a lot
of sense. The poorly maintained lanes of Kent feel much better
under a 32mm tyre than 23mm, there's no denying it...
