The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 redefines tyre performance for powerful saloons and sports cars as well as their driver’s expectations. Significant efforts went into optimising the tyre for outstanding safety and performance. More than 36,000 engineering hours went into the development of the tyre, including over 5,000 tests, 1,200 tests on the road and 3,800 on five test locations in five countries, covering a total of 330,000 km.
A key feature is the active braking technology increasing the contact surface and grip when braking, which allows for a shorter braking distance. Additionally, the new grip booster compound ensures increased grip during braking and handling and adhesive resin for stickiness delivers strong grip for shorter braking and performance handling on wet and dry roads. The new reinforced construction technology allows for steering precision and durability by delivering a stronger lightweight construction improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.
The independent TUV Sud Benchmark Test ordered by Goodyear confirmed the key strengths of the tyre. The results show that the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has a 2.6 metres shorter braking distance (9% better performance) on wet roads than the average of three main competitors. The braking distance on dry roads is 1.3 metres shorter (4% better performance) and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 demonstrates 4% better wet handling than the average of three main competitors. The results also show a 10.9 % better rolling resistance than the average of three main competitors and the tyre represents the second best rolling resistance performance of tyre brands tested.Steering Precision and Durability
New Reinforced Construction Technology delivers a stronger lightweight contruction improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.Grip for Braking and Handling
The New Grip Booster compound used for the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, is made with adhesive resin to increase stickiness with the surface. This delivers better grip for braking and handling on wet and dry roads.Shorter Braking Distance on Wet & Dry Roads
With Active Braking Technology, the contact surface and grip increases when braking. This increased contact with the ground provides you with shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads.1. What differences does the new tire offer from its predecessor?
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 performed better in this year’s independent TÜV Süd Benchmark Test than its predecessor, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 did in the independent TÜV Süd Benchmark Test results from 2010. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 was the better performer when braking on a wet road (on average 12% better performance, 11% better lateral wet grip). The tire also shows better wet handling (4%) and dry braking (3% better performance). 2. How does the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 compare to competitors?
Overall, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 performed better than the average of its competitors tested in the independent TÜV Süd Benchmark Test . The tire shows better wet handling (4%) and dry braking (1.3 meters shorter braking distance on dry roads, or 4% better performance). The tire was also the best performer when braking on a wet road (2.6 meters shorter braking distance on wet roads or 9% better performance). The results also show that the tire performs better for aquaplaning (1% in a straight line and 5% in a curve). Additionally, the same test results also show a 10.9 % better rolling resistance compared to the average of the three tested competitors, which represents the second best rolling resistance performance of the tire brands tested .3. What is the effect of the Grip Booster Technology and what benefit will this bring to the consumer?
With the new Grip Booster Technology, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire is built with adhesive resin for stickiness and delivers improved grip for excellent performance handling on wet and dry roads.4. What is effect of the ActiveBraking Technology and what benefit will this bring to the consumer?
The Active Braking Technology increases the contact surface and grip when braking, meaning shorter braking distances. Independent TÜV SÜD test1 shows that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 delivers shorter braking distance compared to average of key competitors: 2.6 meters on wet roads and 1.3 meters on dry roads5. What is the effect of the Reinforced Construction Technology and what benefit will this bring to the consumer?
Goodyear’s new Reinforced Construction Technology delivers a stronger lightweight construction for the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire, improving handling and cornering performance. Independent DEKRA test proves that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 offers 31% better wear performance compared to average of key competitors.6. How does the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire perform in braking?
The new Grip Booster Technology has a grip booster compound with adhesive resin that ensures the tire sticks to the road. It also has a stronger lightweight construction and is equipped with Active Braking Technology that increases the contact surface when braking, meaning shorter braking distances. Thanks to these innovations, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 offers improved grip, and therefore better handling and braking compared to its predecessor.7. What are some examples of vehicles that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire would be suitable for?
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is designed for luxury sports cars. The tire is already fitted as standard in certain markets by leading OE fitments including Jaguar XF, Mercedes Benz E-Class and Chevrolet Camaro. 8. How will the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire stand up to Singapore road conditions?
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tire has been designed to suit the needs of consumers in [insert country].
