Going off a recent conversation, interested to see what people are running, feel free to elaborate on Tyre / Rider Weight / Cushcore / Type of Riding

On my Enduro bike, F: Assegai exo 32psi / R: DHF exo 34psi, 82kg , rode this setup most recently in Bright, but is pretty much my goto starting point depending on terrain.

On soft sand 4/6 pissies on the fat bike, 26x4.7
Usual trail stuff on the Bronson is 19/24ish, 2.4 / 2.25 650B
Hardtrail stuff where the fork is locked out on the hardtail anything up to 40... 2.1 29er

90 kg.

Hard to answer without knowing the trails, bike and how hard the police are chasing.

25f/28r tubeless for the am rig. I've run lower front but these days I fill her up to 25/28 and check it once a month :p.
30f/40r tubed for the xc rig. (mainly because that bike is infrequent use)

Assegai 2.5 EXO 22-24psi
Dissector 2.4 EXO 25-27psi with cushcore
30mm internal rims on a hardtail

23/24 F on 2.35 tyres, 30mm rims
25/26 R on 2.3 tyres, 30mm rims, a psi less on the dually

Hurts. Requires Money. And is nerdy.
30psi front- 2.5 assegai exo
32-34psi rear- 2.3 aggressor DD
Just tubeless. Rear gets dinged every now and again when I mess up and do something stupid.

Mind blown with possible options, can't possibly offer useful response other than my own opinion,........ I should be a politician.

Wax on, wax orf.
80kg, on a hardtail, flatland XC.

Depends on the ride. General purpose commuting it's 20f/35r to support the weight of my bag. Race day it's down to 15f/28r to cope with loose sand over hard pack, generally mid-corner.

Tubeless Forever.

Geezus, does everyone on RB weigh 80-89kg?!?!

F: 18psi
R: 22psi with Cushcore
Rims are 30mm internal
Usually on Maxxis Assegai front with DH casing to aid in sidewall support and rear Exo+ DHR2 or Assegai, but now testing Contis. Seem to be holding up so far.
Ride very rocky terrain and this combo seems to be the sweet spot. Will increase pressures a few PSI for bike park riding

What other people have in their tyres is irrelevant to just about anything unless the person is your twin and has an identical bike and riding style. I run different pressures all the time because on different bikes, rims, tyre protection, trails and with fluctuating weight.

Pivot Mach 5.5 with 140 travel rear, 160 front
2.6 width tyres on 30mm rims and 73Kg rider,
Minion front, Forekaster rear.
Was running around 18/20 but after doing a cornering clinic recently started trying around 24/26 and working on technique to find grip rather
that relying on the tyre as much, enjoying the faster rolling as a result.

I have a Kona Satori DL 140 front and 130 rear.
Run 22-23 Front (2.3 Minion DHF Exo) and 25-26 rear (2.3 Aggressor Exo)
Both tyres use Nube inserts (think pool noodles)
