Curious what everyone is running in their tires. A bit of extra information would be helpful too. I'll start.

Front Tire: 29" Maxxis Assegai Exo +, 26.5 psi, cushcore

Rear Tire: 29" Maxxis DHR Exo +, 28.5 psi, cushcore

Terrain: Okanagan valley British Columbia. Mix of technical terrain and jumps. Very dry, lots of sharp rocks

Weight: 230 w/ gear

Bike: 2020 Pivot Firebird 29, 170/160.

220 gassed up with snacks
26f (Hellkat fall/winter/spring, Pinner summer, both ATC 2.4)
29r (Nev 2, ATC 2.4)

I've recently started experimenting with Cushcore XC although I don't think the pressures will be dropping at all.

ETA: bike is 160/145 29", winch and plummet blues to double black, usually not hitting big jump lines on this one due to bottoming issues. Consistently wrecking 2-3 tires/year and hoping CC will help mitigate that.

Main riding is loose and loose over hard pack with some chunk scattered about.
185 geared up. Maxxis 2.5 DHF EXO front-22psi and 2.4 DHR EXO rear -26psi.
Working well for me.

Mainly ride rocky and loose terrain in the dry Tahoe weather. I have Ibis 741 rims which are 35mm wide, so I can run really low pressures if I desire. I'm 145lbs

Front: WTB Vigilante 2.5 Light/High Grip 19 Psi

Rear: WTB Breakout 2.3 Tough/Fast Rolling 24 Psi

Bike: Ibis Mojo HD3

In Australia so it's always dusty, but mainly urban features like stairs and jumps on my hard tail

rear: specialized butcher 2.6 black diamond with cush core pro- 11 psi
sounds ridiculous I know but it works
I'm 80 kilograms btw

Ride in the foothills and mtns of NC. Mainly XC downcountry type stuff, rooty, rocks to more groomed trails. 215lbs riding a Hightower LT. Like to go down fast, let the susp handle what comes, but not big jumps.

Bonty XR4's 2.4 F and R, 18 psi front, 22-23 rear on SC Reserve 27's.

In the UK, so lots of mud and stuff. I ride a lot of skatepark and hate pinch flats and dented wheels. XC carbon hardtail but the fork is pumped so it doesn't move. 19mm rims so can't run low pressure.

Front and rear Exo DHF, front 35PSI rear 45PSI. My brakes don't really work so that's kept me off rough stuff.

2.5 dhf exo+ 26/27psi
2.4 dissector exo+ 29psi
alloy rims, on carbons i usually go up 1-2 psi

medium aggro rider, but always looking to improve

I dont really have any proper rock gardens but we do have some and havent had any issues, i've touched the rim once or twice but no issues.

170 lbs riding weight. Okanagan below average rider. 20 front, 23 rear, 29 x 2.4 Michelin Wild enduros, no rim protection.

I've only got a flat when I did not check my tire pressure before heading out to the trails.

I used this tool: https://axs.sram.com/guides/tire/pressure

And came up with: 24F / 27R psi.

155lbs intermediate
Maxxis Minion DHF tire - 2.75x2.50"
Maxxis Dissector rear tire - 27.5x2.40"
Stans Flow MK3 Wheels 29mm width

Not entirely related but am new to tubeless and losing a few psi per week, need to figure out if that's normal or not...

82kgs, the mountain where I ride is wet to the north and very dry to the south, so I usually have mud and dusty trails on the same ride.

Ex471 maxxis dhr II 29x2.4 exo 3c wt: 25psi F, 28 R

Tried lower pressures but I don’t like it when speed increases

Yeah, i check my tyre pressure before each ride, because it looses some air after some days.
