tuck, tire pressure and strength. A, need to get very good strength to weight ratio. B, tire pressure may be too high. C practice tucking.

what I find helped me is just hopping seat in front then tucking down and sitting on the tire. Keep doing that and when you jump you get more efficient at tucking and you can jump a little higher
