Tyre specialist Goodyear has unveiled its latest range, the Transit, which is designed for improved puncture resistance, lower rolling resistance, and better margins for retailers.
The Transit range is a puncture-protected tyre range that takes inspiration from the brand’s pre-existing collection and includes an all new Tubeless Complete model. The range comprises of the Transit Speed and the Transit Tour tyres.
The Transit Speed is a fast-rolling urban tyre combining confidence-inspired handling with durability. The Speed range comes equipped with 5mm reflective sidewall stripes to enhance visibility. Meeting the ECE-R75 requirements for use with modern e-Bikes, the tyre delivers both performance and durability.
The Transit Tour is modelled after Goodyear’s Assurance All-Season automobile tyre. The Tour combines a durable, utilitarian construction with directional tread that offers all-weather traction. Constructed to e-Bike approved standards and with reflective side strips enhancing twilight and night visibility, the Tour provides robust flat protection along with comfort.
When a sharp object tries to perforate the puncture protection layers, the density of the new Aramid Belt around the entry point increases, making for enhanced resistance to penetration. As a result, the foreign body cannot go through the warp and weft of the inner puncture protection layers.
Goodyear’s Brand Manager said: “Most puncture protected tyres are used in city environments where start-stop riding is the norm, we have increased puncture resistance beyond our competitors whilst reducing weight for consumers and in the overall long-term creating a better riding experience.
“We have identified that we are able to offer retailers up to industry leading margins on the new Transit range and forms part of a revised distribution model for IBDs, offering unparalleled margins.”
The Goodyear Tour range is available in sizes 27.5 x 2.0 up to a 700 x 50, while the Speed range is available in 700 x 35 up to 700 x 50.
