Goodyear expands its Ultra High Performance range with ‘Tubeless Complete’ road tyres

Goodyear has announced a new range of ‘Tubeless Complete’ and clincher road tyres.

The new tyres are additions to its Ultra High Performance range. As the name suggests, these are Goodyear’s lightest, fastest rolling tyres, designed for training and racing on the road.

Goodyear Tubeless Complete

The headline addition to Goodyear’s range of road bike tyres is the new set of what it calls ‘Tubeless Complete’ tyres.

The brand claims these tyres improve on standard road tubeless tyre designs, thanks to the addition of a multi-compound material liner on the inside of the tyre.

Goodyear claims its new tyre liner and ‘dual angle bead’ improves on standard tubeless ready designs.

Goodyear claims this liner improves air retention and puncture resistance compared to the standard butyl liners often used in tubeless tyres, with only a minimal weight penalty.

Additionally, the Tubeless Complete tyres have what Goodyear calls a ‘dual angle bead’. This is claimed to provide a more air-tight seal against a tubeless compatible rim, which also helps improve air retention.

Goodyear’s ‘dual angle bead’ is said to provide a better seal against the rim for improved air retention.

Goodyear says its Tubeless Complete tyres are compatible with both hooked and hookless rims.

The 700 x 25mm and 700 x 28mm tyres and the 700 x 30mm and 700 x 32mm tyres are designed around 19mm and 21mm internal rim widths, respectively. This means they should be true to the labelled size when inflated on rims of those sizes.

Dynamic new compounds

Both the Eagle F1 and Eagle F1 SuperSport Tubeless Complete tyres use Goodyear’s Graphene and Silica infused Dynamic:GSR compound.

This is claimed to increase rolling efficiency and traction, and improve wear rates by 10, 8 and 7.2 per cent respectively, versus a so-called ‘standard compound’.

The Vector 4Seasons Tubeless Complete uses Goddyear’s Dynamic:Silica4 compound. This is claimed to improve wet grip, and abrasion and puncture resistance by 8.7, 6.3 and 1.1 per cent respectively, compared to the Dynamic:GSR compound used in the Eagle F1 and Eagle F1 SuperSport Tubeless Complete tyres.

Vector 4Seasons

Goodyear says the Vector 4Seasons’ compound improves wet weather grip significantly.

Sadly, Goodyear has not provided data from comparative tests versus other popular tyres currently on the market, so it remains to be seen how these tyres stack up against the competition.
