Rocker plate damping balls are operated with little air pressure, here a pressure gauge for your DIY rocker plate balls
The Rocker Plates air pressure gauge comes in polished steel and is therefore very robust and designed for durability. With the Rocker Plates manometer you can adjust the air pressure for Rocker Plate damping balls, basketballs, footballs, volleyballs precisely.
The principle of the manometer is to set the desired air pressure by releasing air. The manometer has a button with which you can let the excess air escape from the ball until you have reached the target pressure.
The measuring range of the Rockerplates Ball manometer is from 0 to 1.4 bar / 0 - 20 PSI, which is displayed in analog form via a needle.
Basic information about air pressure in rocker plates damping balls.
The first thing to do is to find out how much pressure you use to ride your rocker plate most comfortably. The tilt angle and the damping properties are ultimately also influenced by the ball pressure used.
We ourselves drive rather with little pressure around 0.15-0.2 bar.
When you have tested your certified pressure, you should also bring your rocker plate into the horizontal position in this area. You can use a spirit level, your smartphone or one of our tariff sets. Taring via air pressure is certainly the simplest method, but it also means that on the side on which your Smartrainer has its flywheel, more air pressure is required for leveling and thus less damping takes place in this direction.
It is more elegant to set the air pressure equally on both sides and to balance your setup with a weight on the opposite side of the flywheel. The easily available weight plates are used here. An assembly option for weight plates is currently under development.
