Ready for Anything: Goodyear launches Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6

Goodyear launches newest member of Eagle F1 family

New technology improves dry performance, wet braking and handling

EV-ready technology reduces noise and rolling resistance

Ready to reassure, ready to thrill

Goodyear has revealed the latest iteration of its premium award-winning Eagle F1 range of ultra-high performance (UHP) tires, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. With new technology to improve dry performance, wet braking, wet handling and electric vehicle suitability, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is ready for anything.

Designed to suit a wide range of cars, including hot hatches, sporty compacts, family cars, luxury sedans and sports coupes, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 features a number of innovations to build on the award-winning Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5. The result is a tire designed to both reassure drivers with its wet braking and handling abilities and thrill them with its outstanding dry performance and sporty credentials.

Improving dry performance1, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 features an adaptive contact patch and optimised cavity to adapt to load variations. While under standard driving conditions, the tire’s contact patch has a normal footprint, but this increases when the driver makes an extreme manoeuvre. The contact area therefore adapts to the driving style and increases as needed, giving the driver more grip and reactivity to extreme manoeuvres. 

In wet weather conditions, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 cap compound with innovative new resin system allows the tire to have more micro-contact with the road surface, giving drivers better grip on damp or wet roads2. Technology developed for UUHP (ultra ultra high performance) tires designed to perform as well on the racetrack as the road has been transferred to Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. In Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, this technology increases its flexibility to match or be more resistant to road roughness3. This resin system boosts tire grip on the road4.

Every tire in Goodyear’s range is EV-ready, but Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 has been specifically designed with manufacturers’ EV requirements in mind. Its noise cancelling pattern results in a reduction of 1 dB, shown on the tire label, while its new compound technology reduces rolling resistance, to help increase electric range5. The result is a tire that is ready for the next generation of mobility.

Laurent Colantonio, Regional Technology Director EMEA, Goodyear: ‚ÄúEagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is the latest in our award-winning range of Eagle F1 tires. With key innovations to improve dry performance and wet braking and handling, it is ready for the most demanding¬†performance, simultaneously reassuring and thrilling drivers. We at Goodyear are proud to work with leading OEMs to push forward the next generation of mobility; that‚Äôs why Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 suits the requirements of electric vehicles and is ready to take electric mobility further.‚ÄĚ

Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 will be initially rolled out in 28 sizes in Q1 2022, with additional sizes released throughout the year. By 2023, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 will be available in no fewer than 65 sizes from 17 to 22-inch fitments.

The initial size list for release in January 2022 includes a number of popular 17 and 18-inch fitments, before further 17, 18 and 19-inch sizes are added in February and March. The range will be expanded to 21-inch fitments in April.

Every model they say better in every aspect.

So if now i got a set of re001. The 004 should out perform 001 by alot already. 

But its not the actual case on the ground.

Nice, the timeline for European launch means this should be in our market by the time I have to change out my F1A5s. Hopefully the price point is around the same as the predecessor given that it's real value for money with it's performance.

this tyre is to target the EV market one. The past tyres, don't have this EV-ready term. Now this is a EV cars owner favourite choice!

What's so special abt EV that it needs different tyres? 

If it's abt the Eco thingy, just get the lousiest gripping tyre. But we know ppl r not buying EVs to save mother earth.....

Basically there is not much different.

Every tyres maker have been trying to make their tyres as grippy and as quiet as possible esp for normal touring tyres.

Suddenly ev come out. They have something that is even more grip and more  quiet? If they had that technology . 

They would  sell it to the mainstream market already.  Why restrict to EV only?

Alot of drivers are non guru. They know nothing about cars expect starting driving  and paying.

Imagine  a lady go to AD . The mech say your car is EV. U Need to use this EV tyres. But it will cost 30% more. I bet more owners including  guys will say go ahead.

Last time when rft just come out and benz still using normal  tyres that time. 

1 pcs of 17'  rft will easily cost 400+- for a 5 series.

Look at now. Price  drop to 200+-. Many owners even replace to non rft.

Tyres maker is just trying  to leech into the EV market to leech the first pot of gold asap before it cool off

I think is the branding, EV car owner will preferred thing that is "formulated" for them.

And EV cars is heavier becuz of the battery, and they are more touquey, which the tyres need more grip.

Some are gimicks, some are science, depends how u see things.
