Both tread patterns are offered in three iterations, using a simplified naming structure based on the suggested usage: Trail, Enduro, Downhill.
The Newton MTR is available in a 2.4″ width in both 27.5″ and 29″ diameters, as well as a 27.5″x2.6″ option in all casing options.
The Newton MTF is available exclusively in a 2.5″ width for both 27.5″ and 29″ in all casing options.
The next generation Newton range has been developed with a progressive mindset from the team at Goodyear Bicycle Tires:
– MX Inspired Design
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 tire 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 tire’s wider footprint offers greater drive traction and confidence inspiring transition between center tread to side knobs.
– Intended Use Derived Construction
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.
– Simplified System
The bicycle tire world is full of confusing marketing terms, technical jargon, and unwieldy acronyms. The strategy is simple: pick a tread pattern and pick your riding style. By pairing casing and compound with front and rear specific tread patterns, tire selection becomes less confusing and allows the rider to do what they do best.
The tread pattern is just one part of the story; developing the right compound is essential to a performance tire. The Newton range features the latest in compound advancements from Goodyear Bicycle Tires, including:
– Dynamic Grip3S: Front specific, triple density 40/42/60a compound, offering the ultimate level of grip and slow rebound properties. Found on Newton MTF Enduro and Downhill models.
– Dynamic Grip3: Rear specific, triple density 40/50/60a compound, offering balanced levels of grip and treadwear. Found on Newton MTR Enduro and Downhill models.
– Dynamic Trail2: Trail specific dual density 50/60a compound specifically formulated to balance grip, wear and rolling efficiency.
The next generation range of Goodyear Newton tires total 15 variations across two tread patterns which cater to riders’ needs based on diameter, width and intended use.
“After two-and-a-half years in development, hundreds of samples, dozens of compound updates, casing layups, scrapped molds and adjustments, it gives us great pleasure to finally reveal what we’ve been working on,” said Ben Evans, commercial director of Goodyear Bicycle Tires. “This is just the first of our gravity and eMTB focused projects, and we cannot wait to continue our story with products that have real purpose and provide value to riders around the world.”
Tire Pressure Calculator:
In line with our commitment to offer all Goodyear Bicycle Tire consumers the best possible experience from their tires, we have been working with SRAM to develop a class-leading tire pressure calculator to aid consumers of any tire within our range with optimum setup pressures.
You can find a link here to the calculator where the user can insert specific data relating to their riding style, their bike and of course their chosen Goodyear Bicycle tire to discover the optimum setup pressure for wet and dry conditions.
