There are models that are designed to make history and have been produced with all the necessary characteristics for people who love competition and motor. Goodyear has been doing it for years, offering the best sensations and benefits. Now with the launch of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 6 we find a tire that has incorporated some elements into the design that are able to meet the specific demands of high-performance electric vehicles (EVs).
Normally tires are manufactured so that they can be adapted to any vehicle model, but in the case of the Eagle F1 Asymetric 6 have been designed in the electrical requirement. Sales of electric vehicles (both pure and hybrid EVs) accounted for almost 30% of new cars sold in Europe during 2021, with almost all major engine manufacturers introducing an electric car into their product range.
With a wealth of experience in the electric automotive industry, Goodyear has designed a high-performance model that is suitable for any electric car. It should be noted that they also design tires for the FIA ETCR, where a single tread race tire has been created for the electric racing cars of 670 hp and it is applying the learnings to its latest generation of road tyres, such as the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. It should be noted that this type of models have been designed to develop an adaptable contact zone, especially for those heavier and more powerful models.
In this model they have reduced the total weight of the tire, giving it a more aerodynamic aesthetic with the intention of controlling turbulence and airflow around the tire and the side of the vehicle. Quiet engines mean that road noise can be more noticeable in electric vehicles. Goodyear has introduced a noise cancellation pattern resulting in a sound reduction of 1 dB across the range and up to 2 dB in selected sizes. This is favored by a thinner lamellae design compared to the Asymmetric 5 and an innovative radial beveled slot to dampen noise frequencies.
