Goodyear today launched its latest high performance tire, the Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax, in the Philippines. Designed for mid-size SUVs, the Wrangler TripleMax delivers Superior Braking Performance, Shorter Wet Braking and Road Hazard Resistant features, offering a safer and more fun driving experience with the family.
The middle SUV segment is clearly a growth market, expected to increase with a compound annual growth rate of more than 12% from 2012 to 2020. In order to meet the growing demand, Goodyear is committed to continued innovation and in offering high performing products to our consumers.
With consumer-driven needs at the center of its tire innovations, the new Wrangler TripleMax provides peace-of-mind for a safer drive, keeping families more secure across any road condition. Goodyear developed the Wrangler TripleMax with an improved version of its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology®. Its innovative tread design, optimized carcass, and high grip compound deliver shorter wet braking performance.
“Goodyear is known for creating a culture of relevant safety innovations that stay ahead of the competition. The road conditions in the Philippines calls for a tire that delivers in on all fronts. The new Wrangler TripleMax delivers Goodyear’s brand promise of a safer and more comfortable ride for drivers and their families with its braking performance on wet and dry roads,” said Kenneth DLR. Sambajon, Market Director, Goodyear Philippines.
Its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology® features a host of features that deliver superior braking performance1. The tread and cavity design of the new Wrangler TripleMax, with its larger surface area contact patch, ensures an enhanced braking ability through biting edges and large block elements.
HYDROGRIP Technology® Reduces Braking Distances on Wet Roads
Goodyear’s HYDROGRIP Technology® provides an innovative new tread compound, maximizing control via a larger surface area contact patch which means there is more rubber contact on the road. It improves braking ability by way of biting edges with large block elements. The tires are also equipped with a wide face and optimized cavity with 5 Rib Tread matching which concentrates pressure distribution on key block elements during braking. This also gives the tires a higher ESBR with optimized polymer blend, giving the tires better grip and a shorter braking distance on wet road. All of these combine to offer a safer and more comfortable ride.
The proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology® is a combination of three elements:
- Superior Braking Performance1: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with large blocks and a high number of biting edges to increase contact to road asperity. This delivers better braking and grip on wet and dry roads.
- Wet Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with enhanced ESBR compound for multipurpose performances to improve braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.
- Road Hazard Resistant: The Wrangler TripleMax designed with rim flange protector, provides more material on the sidewall to protect the rim and tire against road hazards.
