Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is one of Goodyearâ€™s leading tyres. It boasts a range of outstanding features that have contributed to its benchmark status amongst Goodyearâ€™s sports performance set. Suitable for a number of high performance vehicles, including coupes and sedans, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric is the ideal tyre for drivers who demand the very best in power and efficiency. However, like all summer tyres, it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. Key Features and Benefits: Active Braking Technology – Combining a 3 Dimensional Block Design and Advanced Racing Compound increases the road contact under braking conditions which provides shorter stopping distances on wet and dry roads. Lower Tyre Weight – Reduces the vehicle’s unsprung mass the same way alloy rims vs. steel rims, to enable the tyre to follow the road’s surface contours more closely, improving steering precision and dry handling. Fuel Saving Technology – Less material in the tyre and lower heat generation reduces rolling resistance, which can help to reduce fuel consumption and save money. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2’s tread compound combines Goodyear race traction resins for dry grip, high surface silica for wet traction and high molecular weight polymers to optimize tread stiffness. Tread compound is moulded into an asymmetric tread design with a wide, solid outboard shoulder to increase cornering traction and continuous notched inboard ribs to improve high speed stability. Wide circumferential grooves disperse water from the tyre footprint. The internal structure of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide cord to enhance tread stability and high-speed capability. Goodyear’s lightweight, racing-derived construction lowers unsprung mass to increase performance while their crossed plies casing improves steering precision, handling and stopping power.
