Now, 120 years after their original offering, Goodyear is proud to introduce a new line of performance bicycle tyres. Developed with Rubber Kinetics, the Goodyear line utilises refined compounds and casings, each purpose-built for their intended environments. With Tubeless Complete™ designs focused on modern usage and sizes, Goodyear premium bicycle tyres offer leading-edge performance in traction, wear, rolling efficiency and puncture resistance.
TECHNOLOGY - Multi-Density Tread Compounds
With over a century of experience, Goodyear brings their wealth of experience to create a proprietary range of compounds to meet the specific performance requirements of the tyres intended use. The DYNAMIC Compounds range from the Silica4 found on the road tyres to the Dynamic:RS/T - Rugged Soft-Terrain compound on the Enduro/Trail offerings.
All tyres have been designed to be tubeless complete for increased performance, superior air retention and easy installation.
Goodyear offers a simplified variety of casings to suit the terrain and rider. The options have been developed to ensure maximum performance across a host of different conditions. The intention is that the everyday rider can hit the tar, gravel and trails with confidence, regardless of the weather and the lack of a workshop team swopping out your tyres every time there is a drizzle.
Mtb and Gravel Tyres will be available in Premium and Ultimate casings at this stage. The Premium casing offers a Balanced Weight and Durable Casing Fabric while the Ultimate casing boasts a lightweight casing with a smaller thread fabric. The latter casing uses less rubber, making the tyre more supple and faster rolling without compromising traction.
Ride around South Africa for a while and the necessity of all round tyre protection becomes very apparent. With a host of technologies, each specifically tailored for the terrain and type of riding, Goodyear has left nothing up to chance.
Each range of tyre is equipped with a proprietary solution for bead to bead and puncture protection, an under tread breaker belt, sidewall protection as well as combined wall and shell protection.
Different fabrics and rubbers are utilised to best suit each discipline and the associated terrain. Basically, a boatload of tech to ensure your wheels keep turning.
Fresh off the boats, Goodyear Bicycle Tyres have landed on our shores in a range best suited for the SA market.
PEAK - XC/MARATHON
When it’s time to drop the hammer and crush some climbs, Peak is mountain biking’s speed demon. A round profile, closely-spaced tread, and supple casing contribute to Peak’s low rolling resistance, while ample traction and braking performance are delivered thanks to siping on every knob and its multi-dimensional Dynamic:A/T compound.
Available in SA in Ultimate ( 29” & 27.5”) and Premium Casings (29”). Both come in with a 2.25” width.
ESCAPE - XC/TRAIL
The Escape offers versatile off-road performance in all conditions. Widely-spaced and carefully siped square knobs generate edge-to-edge grip, sophisticated rubber compounds ensure traction across a broad range of terrain, and durable casings offer security wherever the trail may lead. Ideal as an XC front tyre, especially on demanding terrain where traction can make or break your race.
For the trails and enduro missions, this makes an ideal rear tyre with plenty of grip without unnecessary rolling resistance.
The Escape is available in Ultimate (27,5”) and Premium Casings (29”) with a 2.35” width
NEWTON - Trail/Enduro
The NEWTON features a fast rolling centre tread, firmly supported side knobs, and advanced compounds for surefooted traction in a wide range of conditions. Designed for the trails and loves the rough and steep stuff.
Available in 27,5” Ultimate casing in 2.4” with 29” versions planned for later in the year.
CONNECTOR - Gravel/CX
From gravel adventuring to drop-bar dirt mashing, the Connector is capable of tackling any terrain. A versatile tread pattern featuring tightly-spaced centre knobs combined with aggressive side knobs is mated to the Tubeless Complete construction. The result is a fast rolling, highly tractable, all-terrain tyre ready for everything from backroads to singletrack.
Available in 700x40 in Ultimate Casing and Dynamic:Silica4 Compound
EAGLE ALL SEASON - Road
Formulated to be the ultimate year-round road tyre, the Eagle All-Season utilises the Dynamic:Silica4 compound; minimizing rolling resistance while at the same time ensuring unrivalled traction in the wet. The Tubeless Complete system yields a supple, consistent feel and superior rolling efficiency at more comfortable pressures, with no worries of pinch flats.
