LARGE VOLUME ALL-TERRAIN
- Small Block, Fast Rolling
- Tubeless Complete
- Full Protection Casing with R:Armor
- DYNAMIC:Silica4 and A/T Compound
- Floor Pump Mounting for Tubeless
From gravel adventuring to drop-bar dirt mashing , the Connector is capable of tackling any terrain. A versatile tread pattern featuring tightly-spaced center knobs combined with aggressive side knobs is then mated to our Tubeless Complete construction. The result is a fast rolling, high-volume, high-grip, allterrain tire ready for everything from backroads to singletrack.

A tyre is not simply the sum of its parts. Instead it is the intelligent and studied integration of multiple individual components, materials and construction methods.
No single specification determines tyre quality.
The science of rubber compounding in tyres borders on alchemy, and formulas are guarded with fierce secrecy. The harsh reality, however, is that MOST tyre brands do not develop their own compounds, and have little control over the final ingredients of their compounds. The compounds here are our own, we developed them, and they can ONLY be found in Goodyear bicycle tyres.
We formulate road compounds to achieve high levels of grip, deliver excellent rolling efficiency, with longlasting durability. They are defined as Dynamic:Pace 70, Dynamic:H/T and Dynamic:Silica4.
Goodyear mountain tyres focus on traction, low rolling resistance, and multi-density compounds to afford traction across a broad range of varying conditions. Mountain compounds are defined as Dynamic:Pace60, Dynamic:A/T, Dynamic:R/T, and Dynamic:RS/T.
Tread design is a key component of a tyre’s ability to perform; it is the tread that determines how the carefully formulated compound of a yire is put to use. At one end of the spectrum, Eagle road tyres feature smooth tread in order to maximise contact between their grippy, advanced Silica compound and paved surfaces. Transit Tour and Transit Speed tyres are grooved and siped to provide superior wet traction, and County and Connector models feature tread designed to provide comfort and traction across a wide range of paved and gravel surfaces.
At the complete opposite end of that spectrum, Newton and Newton-ST tyres utilise deep knobs with reinforced support and aggressive siping to find grip in loose dirt, with Electronic Discharge Molding enhancing mud-shedding abilities.
Goodyear tyres are available in two constructions – Premium and Ultimate – and a variety of use specific armours all tailored to provide optimal protection and deliver superior ride quality. With our off-road tyres, standard casings are 1-ply construction, Enduro casings are a tougher 1.5-ply, and DH casings are an abuse-ready 2-ply.
Tyre protection varies from tyre to tyre, depending on intended use. We identify our bead-to-bead protection as F:Armor, R:Armor, M:Armor, and C:Armor. Center-of-casing protection is F:Shield, R:Shield, M:Shield, and K:Shield, and center underlayment is defined as S1:Shell, S3:Shell, and S5:Shell. Sidewall protection is F:Wall, R:Wall, M:Wall, A:Wall, and C:Wall. F-designations consist of Nylon material, R- designations use a lightweight Nylon, M- designations employ a heavier-duty,
crosshatched Nylon fabric. S- designations indicate puncture protection rubber reinforced with Kevlar fiber.
The end-result translation of this alphabet soup is that we have spent considerable time designing and implementing a thorough, use-specific, tyre protection system that lives up to the Goodyear reputation for performance, quality and assurance.
WALL // ARMOR PROTECTION
The Goodyear name first appeared on a bicycle tyre in 1898 – Goodyear’s very first tyre. Since then, Goodyear and the legendary Winged Foot logo have been prominent in the winner’s circle across and entire spectrum of motorsports. Goodyear tyres have shouldered heavy-duty work on everything from airplanes to Zambonis, have rolled on the moon, and have helped steer millions of motorists along their journey.
Our experience is our foundation and our goal remains constant; to deliver superior performance, regardless of vehicle or terrain. Our passion to innovate drives us to develop class-leading tyres for virtually any application.
Now 120 years after our original offering, Goodyear is proud to introduce a new line of performance bicycle tyres. Developed with Rubber Kinetics, the Goodyear line utilises refined compounds and casings purpose-built for their intended environments. Available in contemporary, progressive sizes, Goodyear premium bicycle tyres offer leading-edge performance in traction, wear, rolling efficiency and puncture resistance.
Whether seeking that extra bit of edge grip on a remote backcountry singletrack, descending alpine passes in the wet, or commuting through urban streets, Goodyear can carry you. We’ll get you there with speed, with style, and with the confidence that comes from more than a century of delivering superior performance.
