Goodyear Eagle F1 Tyres Rolling Resistance


One of my go-to sites to keep up with bicycle tyre developments is Bicycle Rolling Resistance which is a cool site that tests the rolling resistance of tyres and allows comparisons as well.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 tyre is their latest test. It grab my attention as I was not aware the Goodyear are into bicycle tyres, but apparently they are and they can be brought in Australia.

Their conclusion, however, was not that positive, commenting:

We had high hopes the Goodyear Eagle F1 would be something special, but the reality is it doesn’t stand a chance against the competition in our tests. Rolling resistance is quite high, tread puncture resistance slightly below the all-round average, weight isn’t spectacular, tread width is also borderline for an all-round tire. The good parts are that it is very easy to inflate, holds air well, and the sidewalls are quite tough.

We rate this tire 3.0 out of 5 which is still recommended. We do think the Eagle F1 can be a good tire as long as you don’t buy it with the expectation that this is one of the fastest road bike tires out there. The easy inflation with a floor pump is also something some manufacturers should look into.
