Goodyear introduces the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, the latest model in the Eagle F1 Asymmetric range, which focuses on optimized braking and handling in all conditions.

A key feature of the new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is its Active Braking Technology. When braking, the tire’s contact surface with the road, and thus its grip, increases, which allows for shorter braking distances in both dry and wet road conditions.

The Grip Booster Technology, consisting of an adhesive compound that works to increase stickiness with the road’s surface, is a second feature that reinforces the tire’s grip, also resulting in improved braking and handling.

Engineers at Goodyear worked tirelessly to improve the tread design with the help of the new SUV-Optimized Construction Technology. The new cords in the construction’s different layers help to improve handling of the vehicle at higher speeds, optimize cornering stiffness, and to decrease tread wear. To reduce the tread wear further, the tire’s cavity and pattern have also been optimized.

These features are combined with the UHP Cool Cushion Layer, a technology that improves handling while reducing rolling resistance, resulting in better fuel efficiency.

“Braking is one of the most important aspects of a tire, especially on wet roads. That’s why we are delighted that tests show that our Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV has such a significant shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads compared to our main competitors,” said Mike Rytokoski, Chief Marketing Officer for Goodyear Europe.
