MX-SM | Sand / Mud Paddle Tyre
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MX-SM Sand / Mud 110/90-19 18.5 13psi

TODD’S SET-UP
This tyre works best at 13psi. In sand, the tyre maintains its shape and tall knob height, which allows the paddle to bite into the sand. Driving you forward.

MX-ST | Soft / Race Spec Tyre
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MX-ST Soft / Race 2.75-10 9 12psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 60/100-10 8.5 12psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 60/100-12 9.5 12psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 80/100-12 13 12psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 60/100-14 9.5 12psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 90/100-14 14.5 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 90/100-16 14.5 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 70/100-17 11 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 110/100-18 17 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 120/100-18 17 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 100/90-19 16.5 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 110/90-19 16 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 120/80-19 17 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 70/100-19 12 13psi
MX-ST Soft / Race 80/100-21 12 13psi

TODD’S SET-UP
For me, 13psi is the optimum tyre pressure when racing in soft terrain.  Under 13psi drops the knob height and reduces cornering traction mid-exit.  Over 13psi will reduce traction under braking and have a “skatie” sensation when entering corners.

MX-SI | Soft - Intermediate Terrain
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MX-SI Soft – Int. 90/100-14 14.5 13psi
MX-SI Soft – Int. 70/100-17 11 13psi
MX-SI Soft – Int. 110/100-18 17 13psi
MX-SI Soft – Int. 110/90-19 17 13psi
MX-SI Soft – Int. 80/100-21 12.5 13psi

TODD’S SET-UP
Like the MX-ST, 13psi performs best for me. The front tyre holds up under heavy braking and the rear hooks up great in intermediate terrain. Reducing the front to 12.5psi can help cornering in the afternoon when the terrain gets hard.

MX-IT | Intermediate - Hard Terrain
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MX-IT Int. – Hard 110/100-18 16 13psi
MX-IT Int. – Hard 100/90-19 16 13psi
MX-IT Int. – Hard 110/90-19 15 13psi
MX-IT Int. – Hard 120/80-19 16 13psi
MX-IT Int. – Hard 80/100-21 11 13psi

TODD’S SET-UP
I don’t decrease from 13psi in the front when riding off-road. I will drop to 12.5psi in the rear to increase straight-line traction on hard / flat terrain if needed.

MX-IH | Intermediate - Hard Terrain
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MX-IH Int. – Hard 90/100-16 14.5 13psi
MX-IH Int. – Hard 110/100-18 17 13psi
MX-IH Int. – Hard 110/90-19 16.5 13psi
MX-IH Int. – Hard 70/100-19 11 13psi
MX-IH Int. – Hard 80/100-21 12.5 12.5psi

TODD’S SET-UP
I’ve found 12.5psi in the front works best on hard terrain. The tyre flattens out which increases traction under braking.  Increase to 13psi for more comfort over jumps.  The rear works great at 13psi, however drop to 12.5psi to increase straight-line traction.

NEW ENDURO | Intermediate | FIM Style
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
New Enduro Int. – Hard 140/80-18 18 15psi
New Enduro Int. – Hard 90/90-21 13 13psi

TODD’S SET-UP
Overall, 13psi in the front provides the most comfort and performance when riding off-road trails. 15psi is optimal in the rear. Only drop to 14psi for extra grip over rocks & roots.

MAXXCROSS IT | Intermediate - Hard Terrain
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 100/100-18 18 15psi
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 110/100-18 18 15psi
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 120/100-18 18 15psi
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 100/90-19 17 14psi
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 110/90-19 17 14psi
MAXXCROSS IT Int. – Hard 80/100-21 11 14psi

TODD’S SET-UP
Overall, 14psi in the front provides the best traction performance and overall comfort when riding off-road trails. 15psi is the optimum pressure in the rear. If I feel a loss of traction I drop to 14psi.

MAXXCROSS DESERT IT | Intermediate - Hard Terrain
Tyre Model: Terrain: Tyre Size: Tread Depth: PSI:
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 110/100-18 18 14psi
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 120/100-18 18 14psi
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 110/90-19 17 14psi
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 120/80-19 17 14psi
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 80/100-21 13 14psi
DESERT IT Int. – Hard 90/100-21 12 14psi

TODD’S SET-UP
I recommend 14psi in the front & rear for all off-road riding. Only drop to 13psi to increase traction up steep rocky hills and climb over rocks & roots.
