Goodyear’s bicycle division has expanded its range of road tires, updating its existing Ultra-High Performance Road models, while also introducing a new range of High Performance Eagle Sport tires, which include Tubeless Complete version of the brand’s Ultra-High Performance Eagle F1 and Eagle F1 SuperSport models, along and the all-new Vector 4Seasons.
Goodyear says its new Tubeless Complete tires improve upon the brand’s standard road tubeless designs thanks to the addition of a multi-compound material liner on the inside of the tire, claiming the liner improves air retention and puncture resistance compared to the standard butyl liners often used in tubeless tire with only minimal weight gain. Moreover, the tires are compatible with both hooked and hookless rims.
Additionally, the Tubeless Complete tires feature what Goodyear calls a “dual angle bead’”, which claims to provide a more air-tight seal against a tubeless compatible rim, along with improved air retention.
For traditionalists, Goodyear has added tan wall versions of its Eagle F1 clincher tires and clincher versions of the Vector 4Seasons tire to its Ultra High Performance range as well.
Available in sizes 700 x 25mm, 700 x 28mm, 700 x 30mm and 700 x 32mm, the first two are optimized for rims with an internal width of 19mm, while the last two are designed to work with rims that have an internal width of 21mm.
In the case of the Eagle F1 and Eagle F1 SuperSport Tubeless Complete tires, Goodyear has added its Graphene and Silica infused Dynamic:GSR compound, which is designed to increase rolling efficiency and traction, while improving wear by a claimed 10%, 8% and 7.2% cent respectively, compared to a “standard compound”.
According to Goodyear, its Vector 4Seasons Tubeless Complete uses its Dynamic:Silica4 compound, claiming improve grip during wet riding conditions, improved puncture resistance by 8.7%, 6.3% and 1.1% respectively compared to the Dynamic:GSR compound used in the Eagle F1 and Eagle F1 SuperSport Tubeless Complete tires.
