Air Down VS Air NotDown: Air Pressure VS Traction

Do you air down when you go to the trail? Of course we all know that lower PSI in the tires gives us better traction on the trail. It increases the footprint in the ability of the tires to grip the different shapes of the ground that you’re rolling over.

But how often have you just left her tires inflated and gotten yourself stuck. What do you use to re-inflate the tires when you’re done your day on the trails and it’s time to get back on the highways?

This video from Bleepin Jeep does a good job of showing you non-scientifically why air down tires work better. He also discusses the difference between having bead locks and not having bead locks and air pressures you can run in either case.
