Goodyear's answer to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Continental Sport Contact 6 is finally here, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3!

While we've not yet had the chance to drive on it, the independent German test body TUV have done their usual array of tests, and found that the new Goodyear has 2.6 metres shorter wet braking (9% better performance) and 1.3 metres shorter dry braking (4% better performance) than the average of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3, Bridgestone Potenza S001 and Continental Sport Contact 5.

This is a tyre we're very excited about, so you can be sure we'll be reporting on the driving experience at the first opportunity. 

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 will be sold in 17 to 20 inches, covering 41 sizes. The tyre will be on the market in certain sizes now, with the majority of sizes on sale by March 2016.

Press Release

Goodyear announces its new summer tyre, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3: the Ultra-High Performance tyre that delivers shorter braking distance on dry & wet roads helping drivers to stay in control and ready to enjoy the journey. With proven Eagle family test wins and OE track record, it is Goodyear’s premium offering for outstanding braking performance, responsive handling and control in both dry and wet conditions. 

The Ultra High-Performance segment is clearly a growth market, with an expected compound annual growth rate from 2015 to 2020 of more than 3%². The market is expected to grow in this timeframe with more than 9 mil units². This is primarily driven by the growth of the car park in the C, D and E vehicle segments (medium, executive, large and luxury cars) that are increasingly fitted with UHP rated tyres.

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 TÜV Süd 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. 

 

“We are very happy that the TÜV test confirms that Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 delivers leading results in the braking test, especially during more demanding situations such as rainfall” says Alexis Bortoluzzi, Goodyear Marketing Director Consumer EMEA. “After all, braking is the number one consumer need, and particularly critical for high performance car drivers.” 

The new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 will be available in 41 sizes in 17 to 20 inches starting as of December 2016, range will be completed with the majority of sizes by March 2016.

I'll prefer to wait for local review of this new tyres before go for it. As long as the performance is better than GYF1A2, I'll give it a try.

With the Continental Sport Contact 6 already launched, and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 announced, next up is the Michelin Pilot Sport 4. 2016 is shaping up to be a really exciting year for car enthusiasts.

GY tyres are typically heavier than Michelin & Continental in the same class.  So it will be interesting to see how the new GY tyres' weight fair against the 2 class leading brands.

heavier means more stable during high speed or lighter means save more petrol?

Currently using F1A2, generally they are rather good.  But the noise level is bad and start to crank up at about 30,000KM.  Currently, I'm at 40,000KM.
