Goodyear’s EV-ready Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 Raises the Bar

Ready to reassure and thrill, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is EV-ready and reduces noise and rolling resistance

To Fully showcase the tyre’s capabilities, Goodyear hosted a unique driving experience event for select customers in Johannesburg’s Kayalami Raceway. Professional driving experts from the BMW driving academy were on hand to provide guidance and instruction as well as trained driving professional Dayaan Padayachey who earlier this year put Goodyear tyres on the track at Simola Hill Climb.

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 tyre designed to both reassure drivers with its wet braking and handling abilities and thrill them with its outstanding dry performance and sporty credentials. With new technology to improve dry performance, wet braking, wet handling and electric vehicle suitability, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is ready for anything.

Shane Petersen, Director of Consumer Business, Goodyear South Africa said “Goodyear has a proud heritage of delivering innovative tyres to South African drivers for over 75 years. We now proudly present the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, the latest in our award-winning range of Eagle F1 tyres.

“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.”

Every tyre 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 tyre label, while its new compound technology reduces rolling resistance, to help increase electric range. The result is a tyre that is ready for the next generation of mobility.
