The Goodyear Eagle F1 Sport attributes
As with all tyres that are part of the Goodyear UHP family, the Eagle F1 Sport features a signature Eagle Claw tread design that comes with stronger shoulder blocks. Equipped with ActiveControl Technology, the shoulder contact patch of the tyre is maximized and its stiffness is increased to improve the cornering stability and steering precision when negotiating bends and corners.
In addition, it leverages on the Goodyear’s patented tread design, which includes noise barrier strips. This ensures a quieter and smoother ride. At the same time, the design is enhanced by the availability of narrower lateral grooves on the tyre to further reduce vibrations and road noise for a comfortable ride.
When it comes to braking, the Eagle F 1 Sport has the brnnd’s DynamicBraking Technology. The combination of the Eagle Claw tread and high silica loaded tread compound with upgraded polymer matrix enhances braking capabilities on both wet and dry surfaces. Furthermore, an improved cavity shape provides a wider footprint for better contact and pressure distribution.
Last but not least, the Eagle F1 Sport’s wide rim flange protectors are available on all sizes, which helps protect the tyres and its rims from accidental curb damages while maneuvring and parking, for added peace-of-mind.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Sport is available at all Goodyear AutoCare outlets.
