I typically run 19-22 front and 20-24 rear depending on how rough/rocky the trail is.

I've usually set mine at 24 rear 20 front but let air out from there mid ride till it feels good. still trying to dial it in. I think i've ended up around 20 rear 17 front. which feels awesome, you get a slight squirm then catch out of the rear tire when you push it hard, where without inserts you'd just get squrim then more squirm.

I have gotten heard some dings on the rim running that low though.

i played around with pressures a lot, in all different terrain; went as low as 15/18, found 20/22 had best feel.

I'm a 215lb rider. I am running a WTB 2.6 Vigilante 29" on a 31.6mm IW rim at 19 psi in the front. In the rear, a WTB 2.4 Trail Boss 29" on 31.6mm IW rim at 24 psi. Both tires are the light casing.

~70 kg fully equipped.

I can squeeze tires little bit on both wheels with fingers. ))

I do 20-24 in the front and 25-28 in the rear, then let air out before the downhill if it's real janky. Then again I discovered my front tire was completely flat this morning after riding yesterday, so maybe that isn't a great strategy.

I went down 5 in the front and 3 in the rear on my DH bike. 30mm internal rims and I'm roughly 210lbs in gear.

i run the same pressure as before cush core because you have to remember that with reduced volume there is less stability on the tread which i felt that when i dropped pressure would feel sketchy

so right not i have 27 psi in 2.5 assegai exo+ and 32psi agressor 2.3 double down
