I use 0.8 bar or 0.9 if its really rocky. HOWEVER keep in mind I prefer a harder front that most!

I was running about 0.5 with the c19 (FYI with the EF07 i am usually about 0.8 and with tubes 0.9+ and ride lots of rocks) as it is quite a stiff tyre. I seem to remember it softening with time so you may want to start out even lower, but you might then have issues with it rolling around

What pressure you recommend for the C-19 90/100 with Tubliss?
What do you run now? As per Jedi I keep the front on 0.9-1.0 regardless of tyre. @0.9 it still has some give and you dont use your front rim as a walking stick!

Agreed! I mainly use 0.8 at the front...if I know we not doing rocks and more sand, I might even dial it back a bit more...but 0.8 is my go too.

I have the Batt mx grip mid/soft on the front. Really lekker tire with plenty grip!

how many of your pressure testers are actually that accurate ?
Good point!!!

I have 2 different types of electronic ones and they read 0.9 and 0.8 when i pump them to 1 bar on the foot pump gauge. its just an indication of where you are really. I try get to the middle of the 3 and +1 pump as a average rule. then give it a push with the fingers to satisfy the placebo effect :icon_lol:
