Why wider road tyres at low pressures make you faster!

Time to sitback, make a brew and get your inner bike nerd on!


Comparing the actual speed effect of running wider tyres at lower pressure compared to narrower ones at higher pressures is actually really hard to do. Luckily though some clever wheel experts with PhD’s (and power meters) have done all the science for us and the result is we are all probably riding slower than we could be!
