Is there any application that wouldn’t benefit from the addition of carbon fiber? You can strike tire technology from the list, as Goodyear has announced a new line of Eagle tires that features ResponsEdge Technology. The outboard sidewall of these new shoes are reinforced with a carbon fiber insert that improves stiffness for sharper handling.
Goodyear has also added a sound- and shock-absorbing layer, called InsuLayer in marketing speak, that’s comprised of Kevlar. These new technologies create what Goodyear claims is a “performance tire with manners” and further contributes to the mass proliferation of our favorite exotic material.
