GOODYEAR - NEWTON MTF DOWNHILL - 27.5 X 2.5
The next generation Newton tyres incorporate leading-edge technology in tread compound development, casing lay-ups, as well as proprietary construction methods.
The profile of the Newton range is inspired by the motocross (MX) world. By utilizing a rounder profile for the Newton MTF (front), damping capacity is increased and the tyre footprint is elongated; in the real world, this offers improved straight-line control while providing a greater contact patch for braking. The Newton MTR (rear) maintains a squarer profile and paired with uniform, closely spaced outer knobs. The tyre’s wider footprint offers greater drive traction and confidence inspiring transition between center tread to side knobs.
Both tread patterns in the Newton range are available in Trail, Enduro and Downhill specific casing layups. Each casing layup is then paired with multi-durometer compounds developed specifically for the tire’s intended application and front / rear use.
The large block tread design of the Newton MTF is optimized for straight-line control, cornering confidence and effective braking. Progressive block layout limits dirt buildup, maintaining performance across a wide range of conditions.
The tread pattern is just one part of the story; developing the right compound is essential to a performance tire. The Newton MTF DH features our new Dynamic Grip3S compound, a front-specific, triple density 40/42/60a compound offering the ultimate level of grip and slow rebound properties.
The Goodyear name first appeared on a tyre — a bicycle tyre, to be precise — in 1898. Since then, Goodyear and the legendary Winged Foot™ logo have been synonymous with victory, dominating the winner’s circle across the entire spectrum of motorsports. Goodyear tyres have shouldered heavy-duty work on everything from airplanes to Zambonis. They’ve rolled on the moon and have helped steer millions of motorists along their journeys.
Now, 120 years after Goodyear's original offering, we welcome a new line of performance bicycle tyres. Developed with Rubber Kinetics, the Goodyear line utilizes refined compounds and casings, each purpose-built for their intended environments.
