Newton MTF Newton MTR Mountain Bike tires

The Newton MTF (front) and Newton MTR (rear) tires have been developed as a complementary system, providing confidence and inspiring performance across a wide range of conditions for modern gravity and e-mountain bikes. The next generation Newton tires incorporate leading-edge technology in tread compound development, casing lay-ups, as well as proprietary construction methods, all of which are produced at the recently expanded dedicated Goodyear Bicycle Tire factory in Taiwan.

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.


bigquotesAfter 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. 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. Ben Evans, commercial director of Goodyear Bicycle Tires


We all know Olly Wilkins is a formidable talent on the bike, and this versatile individual can turn his hand to anything! Little did we know after a 'rampage' inspired injury to his ankle, he can still make light work of any terrain whilst heading up design of the new generation of Goodyear mountain bike tires. He's one hell of a guy!! Join Olly as he travels around the world overseeing every stage in the development of the Newton MTF and Newton MTR with a little help from Wingfoot Alliance athletes Joel Anderson, Conor Macfalane and Benoit Gurnel.

 Really want to try Goodyear tyres at some point. What I love about Olly is that he knows how to have fun on a bike. Not the most techy rider when it comes to tricks, not the fastest downhill BUT can shred with the best of em' with a massive smile on his face.

 The high jump challenge video with Olly, Blake and Sam Reynolds on GMBN is one of my all time favorites. I was smiling and laughing through the whole thing. Having fun on bikes just never gets old for me.

 Do Goodyear mtb tires really exist in the real world?
I have never seen them in real life, and when I try looking for them, I can't seem to find any sotre that sells them.
Would really like to try them, as I have this weird tire obsession, but they seem to be rarer than unicorn shit.

 I really liked how Olly grew his hair out to keep his neck warmer in the snow, now that level of intelligence is the real factor that will make my buy this tire! Damn good(year) job guys!
