Increased Performance and Ease Of Use.
Next generation tubeless tyre design incorporating tubeless specific bead and casings, allowing for easy installation and superior air retention.
Multi-Density Tread Compounds
Goodyear’s proprietary range of compounds are developed to meet the specific performance requirements of the tyre’s intended use.
Dynamic:Silica4 – Formulated to maximize rolling efficiency while providing class leading grip in wet conditions.
Dynamic:A/T –All-Terrain compound providing excellent rolling efficiency while maintaining a high level grip to minimize power transfer loss.
Dynamic:R/T – Rugged-Terrain compound specifically formulated to balance grip, wear and efficiency.
Dynamic:RS/T – Rugged Soft-Terrain compounded formulated for maximum grip.
Dynamic:Pace60 – Developed for multi-surface and off-road usage, with a focus on grip.
Dynamic:Pace70 – Formulated for on-road applications, with an emphasis on durability.
Balanced Weight and Durable Casing Fabric
Utilizing a balanced, robust casing, our Premium construction combines exceptional ride quality with outstanding durability.
Lightweight Casing Fabric
Utilizing a smaller thread fabric, this casing uses less rubber - making the tyre more supple and faster rolling, with improved traction.
Supple Casing Sidewall Support
Utilizing a 1.5-ply constructed casing increases sidewall layers by 50% to provide additional support while maintaining a supple feel.
Ultimate Support and Rugged Durability
Utilizing a 2-ply casing increases sidewall toughness by 100%. This, along with a butyl insert, provides the ultimate in support and durability for DH applications.
Bead to Bead Cut and Puncture Protection
Goodyear employs various fabric materials which are then formed with the casing to provide both cut and protection. We select our fabrics based upon not only the size of the tyre but also the tyre’s intended use.
R:Armor: Goodyear’s lightweight Nylon Race fabric extends from bead to bead.
Under-Tread Breaker Belt
This is a layer of puncture protection located under the tyre’s tread cap. Tyres utilizing our Shield belts offer excellent puncture protection while their sidewalls remain supple to ensure high performance.
F:Shield – The Force breaker belt gives the tyre that extra layer to improve puncture protection while maintaining optimal rolling characteristics.
Sidewall Protection and Support Layer
Running from bead to tread, the material in our :Wall layer offers a variety sidewall protection against tears and punctures. Even with the added layer of protection, supple ride characteristics are retained to ensure optimum performance.
R:Wall – A lightweight fabric layer found on our performance tyres.
M:Wall – Durable Mono fabric, found throughout our Mountain range where cut and abrasion resistance is paramount.
A:Wall – A butyl layer located within the casing plies – A:Wall provides additional sidewall support.
Aramid Infused Sub-Tread
Found on our Transit range of tyres, our Shell Protection is available in 1, 3 and 5mm depths. Our proprietary blend of low hysteresis, aramid-infused rubber.
S1:Shell – 1mm layer below the tread.
S3:Shell – 3mm layer below the tread.
S5:Shell – 5mm layer below the tread.
Combined Wall and Shell Protection
Goodyear’s Transit tyres are available in our Secure level of protection - a combined sidewall armor and our toughest S5:Shell. This provides a class leading lightweight tyre with unsurpassed levels of protection, optimal for ensuring you get from point A to point B no matter the road conditions.
