Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2
The ultra high-performance tyre that delivers shorter braking distances when it matters most
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is a high-performance tyre that delivers shorter braking distances and saves fuel.
- Shorter braking distances on wet and dry
- Greater fuel efficiency
- High-performance handling
Shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads. Stop with confidence when split seconds count thanks to ActiveBraking technology, which increases tyre contact with the road as you brake. In tests against leading competitors, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 delivered three metres shorter braking on wet roads and two metres shorter on dry roads.*
Greater fuel efficiency. Goodyear’s FuelSaving Technology helps you cut fuel costs and CO2 emissions. A low-weight construction means the tyre requires less energy to roll, while the silica compound reduces heat generation.
High-performance handling. Get more from your high-powered car. The high-surface silica compound enhances grip, for confident handling on wet and dry roads. A stiff carcass structure increases steering precision when travelling at speed. Recently chosen as a factory-fitted tyre for the new Mercedes-Benz CLS.
- Good performance on wet bracking
- Fuel efficient
- Excellent handling
The ultra high-performance tire that delivers shorter braking distances when it matters most. Shorter braking distances on wet and dry. High-performance handling, greater fuel efficiency. We know that on the road a split second can mean the difference between an unfortunate accident and a lucky escape. Goodyear’s new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyre features our latest ActiveBraking Technology. Using innovative 3 dimensional block design within.
Under braking conditions, each block is under higher load and the contact surface to the road increases. Crossed plies carcass structure.
- Shorter braking distance on dry roads
- Shorter braking distance on wet roads
- Improved steering precision, handling and dry grip
Reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions TUV Claims 10% shorter braking distance on wet roads* 6% shorter braking distance on dry roads* 7% better rolling resistance* 3% better wet handling* * Compared to the average performance of 3 leading competitors. Braking distance on wet road from 80km/h to 20km/h.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
