In a novel approach, Paligap and Goodyear have embarked on what they call the “Goodyear Chronicles”.
Instead of opting for the traditional approach of promoting a particular aspect of a tyre, they have chosen to highlight the everyday rider when testing product, giving it real-life experience in an unbiased opinion.
The first in the series of these videos features Tim Wilkey from Forever pedalling, a Bristol-based cycling hub, focusing on the culture of cycling. Tim, an experienced cyclist put the Goodyear transit range through their paces on his daily commute enduring lengthy rides in their intended use of an urban environment and at the same time comparing them to some of the cycling industry big-name brands.
“Yes, they are good, they roll fast, grip well and I had zero punctures during my time on them, I would recommend them” Tim claimed when comparing them to other brands.
The Goodyear Transit range has not been developed for ultra-long distance touring, instead focusing on weight, puncture and rolling resistance in an urban commuting environment, whilst utilising years of tyre experience gained in automotive industry.
