Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
Shorter braking distance on wet & dry roads
With Active Braking Technology, the contact surface and grip increases when braking. This increased contact with the ground provides you with shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads.
Grip for braking and handling
The New Grip Booster compound used for the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, is made with adhesive resin to increase stickiness with the surface. This delivers better grip for braking and handling on wet and dry roads.
Steering precision and durability
New Reinforced Construction Technology delivers a stronger lightweight construction improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.
